I think that HIHYM should have gotten a nod for ensemble cast in a comedy. I mean seriously New Adventures of Old Christine?

I am pulling for Michael C Hall!!! He is amazing in that role.

Great nominations. Glad to see Michael C. Hall and Chandra Wilson on the list. I, too, was surprised that House wasn't on the ensemble list. They are a great team.

Im hope Steve Carell wins for Male Actor in a comedy. He's one of the few actors that makes me laugh out loud, and it's not just his lines either. And House should have been nominated for ensemble. They're all really good together.

My fingers are crossed for DiCaprio and The Office.

I've never heard of any of those choices in the *television movies or miniseries* category. Apparently I live under a rock. Or something. Boston Legal needs to win something! :)

There's jeremy irons name for those who were wondering what he'd done lately. Apparently he got nominated for a SAG! Cool. And Jackie Earl Haley?!!! Like, From the original Bad News Bears?! That was weird reading that name. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role: all were great that I saw. Forest Whitaker was a supporting role in TLKOS I thought. I think Ryan or Forest. Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role: Meryl Streep. Again, all were good that I saw. I think SAG has MUCH better nominees than golden globes and oscars. Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role: Djimon Hounsou Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role: Abigail Breslin, Little Miss Sunshine OR Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture: Babel or Bobby. Bobby, though kinda blah, had good acting. Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries: William H. Macy, "Nightmares and Dreamscapes" Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries: Annette Bening, "Mrs. Harris" or Helen Mirren, "Elizabeth I" Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series: Hugh Laurie, "House" Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series: this one is the hardest. 3 way tie - Mariska Hargitay, "Law & Order: SVU", Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer" and Chandra Wilson, "Grey's Anatomy" Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series: Steve Carell, "The Office" Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series: Megan Mullally, "Will & Grace" Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series: "Grey's Anatomy" though I think lead characters Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey are the worst actors on the show and not because of their characters' love triangle. Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series: "The Office" or "Weeds"

I'm happy about Weeds, too! It's a really good show and I feel like nobody really knows that yet (besides the SAG folks clearly). That "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series" category will be a very close race!!

Happy to see Weeds up there. It is a weird show, like I don't believe the premise. But even with that huge criticism I still love the show. Great writing and great acting. So irreverent.

Overall good nominations! I would have liked to see a nom for Ensemble for House and Gilmore Girls though. I know the writing on GG hit a rough patch, but the cast is always top notch.
