Screen Actors Guild Award nominees announced

The nominees for the Screen Actors Guild Awards -- which often provide strong clues about which actors will receive nominations come Oscar time -- were announced this morning.

As we saw with the Golden Globe nominations, there are plenty of accolades for stars of "The Fighter," "Black Swan" and "The King's Speech." But some expected contenders are missing from the list.

Notably absent: Andrew Garfield from "The Social Network," who is recognized as part of the overall ensemble but not for his individual performance. Also falling in the snubbed category are Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, neither of whom are nominated for "Blue Valentine," and "Inception," which struck out entirely in the SAG Award department.

There are some additions that didn't make the Globes cut, though, including Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld of "True Grit," John Hawkes of "Winter's Bone" and Hilary Swank, who may now become a more regular part of the potential-Oscar-nominee conservation thanks to this nod for her work in "Conviction."

A complete list of nominees, including the ones in the television categories (congrats, Jon Hamm), follows after the jump.

"potential-Oscar-nominee conservation"

Assuming you meant "conversation" :) It's the second time in two days I've seen that particular typo on Wapo, which is probably the only reason I caught it.

That's more like it. Let this list of nominees be further evidence of the irrellevance of the Golden Globes. It's nice to see Robert Duvall get nominated for his incredible performance in "Get Low."

Yay, Melissa Leo! I've loved her work ever since "Homicide: Life on the Street."
