Sag Bestows Double Laurels On Mirren, Dicaprio


In their annual self-congratulations, the Screen Actors Guild selected Leonardo DiCaprio and Helen Mirren as nominees in two different categories of the 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. DiCaprio received a best-actor nomination for his role in Blood Diamond and a best-supporting-actor nomination for The Departed. Mirren received the best-actress nod for her title-role performance in The Queen and another best-actress nod in the "TV Movie or Miniseries" category for playing an earlier queen in Elizabeth I. The decision to -- in effect -- demote DiCaprio for his The Departed role avoids his having to compete against himself for a best-actor award, as he will have to do for a Golden Globe. The best-actor category also included Forest Whitaker for The Last King of Scotland, Ryan Gosling for Half Nelson, Peter O'Toole for Venus, and Will Smith for The Pursuit of Happyness. Surprisingly absent from the list was Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat fame, who has been included in most year-end nominee lists by critics' groups. Besides Mirren, best-actress nominees included Penélope Cruz for Volver, Judi Dench for Notes on a Scandal, Meryl Streep for The Devil Wears Prada and Kate Winslet for Little Children. Babel, Dreamgirls and Little Miss Sunshine were nominated for best performance by a cast.
