Steven Spielberg - Lincoln And Silver Linings Playbook Lead Sag Award Nominations

Steven Spielberg's historical epic Lincoln is set to battle Silver Linings Playbook at the Screen Actors Guild (Sag) awards next year (13) after the movies picked up four nominations each.

Daniel Day-Lewis has been nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, alongside Bradley Cooper for his emotive turn in Silver Linings Playbook. Other contenders include John Hawkes (The Sessions), Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables), and Denzel Washington (Flight).

Day-Lewis' co-star Tommy Lee Jones also receives a nod in the supporting actor category, meaning he'll battle it out for the prize with Cooper's colleague Robert De Niro, as well Alan Arkin (Argo), Javier Bardem (Skyfall) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master).

The films are also both nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast honour, alongside Argo, Les Miserables, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Jennifer Lawrence has picked up a nod in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her turn in Silver Linings Playbook, putting her in competition with Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Marion Cotillard (Rust And Bone), Helen Mirren (Hitchcock) and Naomi Watts (The Impossible).

Sally Field is up for the supporting actress trophy for her role as Mary Lincoln, as are Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables), Helen Hunt (The Sessions), Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy) and Dame Maggie Smith (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).

In the Tv categories, Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Downton Abbey and Mad Men are all nominated for ensemble performance, while Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore and Woody Harrelson are all up for Tv acting prizes.

The winners will be announced at the prizegiving in January (13).
