SAG Award Nominees Include Melissa McCarthy, Jonah Hill, Armie Hammer, And More Surprises image
The Screen Actors Guild has become the first industry group to announce their yearly awards nominations, announcing their nominations this morning for five film prizes and eight TV prizes. Instead of awarding a Best Picture the Guild chooses Best Ensemble and made room for a number of surprises, including a nod for Woody Allen's springtime comedy Midnight in Paris and, most surprisingly, the raunchy hit Bridesmaids. That film's Melissa McCarthy also managed to score a nomination to match a handful of wins from various critic's groups, which makes her dark horse shot at a Best Supporting Actress nomination just that much more likely to actually happen.

Other surprises included a Best Actor nomination for Demian Bichir of the little-seen A Better Life, Best Supporting Actor nods for Moneyball's Jonah Hill and J. Edgar's Armie Hammer, and a nod for Glenn Close as Best Actress for Albert Nobbs, a performance that seemed to be losing heat as group after groups of critics ignored it. Check out the full list of nominees below, and let us know in the comments which are your favorite nominees.
