SAG AWARD NOMINATIONS

The Screen Actors Guild announced their nominations for the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards today. These awards are the only major awards voted on strictly by actors. So, basically it's Hollywood patting each other's backs, in a nice way. Ha. Where the Golden Globes are the little brother to the Oscars, the SAG Awards are the little brother's best friend.
Oh, and there is no Best Picture award. The "big" award is the Best Cast Award.

The awards will be broadcast, LIVE, on January 25, 2009 on TNT and TBS.
