Nominations announced for the 16th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - the Actor Awards Ceremony will be broadcast on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010 on TNT and TBS at 8pm. The complete list of nominees is available here.As usual we're focusing on the TV noms and we're not seeing too much of a deviation from the WGAs and Golden Globes but again a few mysteries: why would Bryan Cranston get nominated but not the ensemble from "Breaking Bad"? The ensemble for "The Closer" was nominated but not "Sons of Anarchy"? As with the WGAs and Golden Globes we respectfully submit to you, our picks and predictions for the SAG awards below.
