Brokeback Lead Sag Nominations

Gay cowboy movie BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN has made the biggest impression on the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award nominations, its stars picking up four acting nods ahead of the ceremony later this month (JAN06).

The movie is nominated in the Best Cast in a film category, HEATH LEDGER as Best Actor and JAKE GYLLENHAAL as Best Supporting Actor. Their co-star MICHELLE WILLIAMS is also nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category.

Ledger will have to compete with CINDERELLA MAN star RUSSELL CROWE for the Best Actor prize; as well as PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN, nominated for CAPOTE; JOAQUIN PHOENIX for JOHNNY CASH biopic WALK THE LINE; and DAVID STRATHAIRN, for GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK.
