SAG Award TV nominations: Snubs and surprises

During an awards season that’s dominated by talk of movies — all a gradual buildup to the biggest awards show of them all — it’s easy to forget that some winter prize distributors recognize TV shows as well. And once you remember that TV shows are also being lauded, your thoughts naturally turn to which nominations seem like a surprise, pleasant or otherwise — as well as the deserving series that have been overlooked.

And for today’s SAG Award nominations, each of these qualifies for one of those categories:

Snub: Mad Men
Matthew Weiner’s seminal series was passed over completely, even though it’s won two SAG ensemble awards before. What will it take to get Jon Hamm some individual recognition at an awards show? (After playing Don Draper for six seasons, he’s won a grand total of one TCA Award and one Golden Globe for the role, not counting the SAG Awards he shared with the show’s cast. That ain’t right.)

'Homeland': Damian Lewis talks SAG nomination, jokes show can 'kill me whenever they want'

When Damian Lewis received news of his first Screen Actors Guild Awards nomination, he was not doing anything particularly glamorous. In fact, it was wonderfully ordinary: He was shopping in the streets of London with his child in tow.

And as a day of shopping turned into a day of celebration for the actor, EW got him on the phone for a quick chat about the start of what’s likely going to be a busy award season for him and his Homeland cast mates and about the show’s upcoming season finale. READ FULL STORY

Mary Tyler Moore to receive SAG's lifetime award

Mary Tyler Moore will receive the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award at January’s SAG Awards ceremony. 

“Mary Tyler Moore won our hearts as Laura Petrie and Mary Richards, our respect as her production company became synonymous with quality television, our awe as she tackled difficult subject matter in film and on Broadway, and our admiration she turned her public recognition into a catalyst to draw attention to critical and deeply personal health and social issues,” said SAG president Ken Howard, in a statement. “She truly embodies the spirit behind SAG’s Life Achievement Award, and we are honored to proclaim her as its 48th recipient.”

They go backstage for a mini-media tour, of course, where they talk to the press and eventually make their way back to the main press room to take questions from all sorts of reporters, including yours truly from EW. It wasn’t until nearly an hour after the show started that the first winner made her way to the press room (thanks to The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies!), but after that, the winners came through in a near-constant parade, glowing all the way over the accolades they’d just gotten from their fellow actors. Here, enjoy a minute-by-minute, fly-on-the-wall account of the winners’ tours backstage from the Screen Actors Guild Awards press room.

5:56 p.m. PT: The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies — who took home a trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series — appears as the first winner to come backstage, looking composed and beautiful as always. (Would you honestly expect anything less?) Margulies talks about several topics, but most interestingly, how the most nerve-wracking part of the night is always the red carpet. She also tells the press about her first movie role, way back in 1994: She played, in her words, “a hooker with a heart of gold” opposite Steven Seagal in Out for Justice.
