OSCAR WATCH: SAG Nominations

Following on from yesterday's Critics Choice nominations, the SAG nominees were announced today. The most interesting inclusion was Demian Bichir in Best Actor for "A Better Life". Melissa McCarthy's campaign seems to really be gaining steam, with "Bridesmaids" also picking up a nod for Best Ensemble! Could a Best Picture nomination be in the works? The biggest snub was Hugo, which was completely shut out of the list (though that film wasn't heralded for its acting). Another surprise was the snub of Albert Brooks, who has been winning quite a few critics awards. Next up, the always amusing Golden Globe nominations! The full list of SAG nominees:
