I know that the SAG awards are handed out to both movies and TV shows, but since this is a movie blog, I'm only reporting on the movie awards. Yesterday, the SAG award nominations were announced and featured several snubs and surprises. Here they are:

The SAG awards did not really surprise me at all this year. They picked pretty much everything that was expected, and there were not many surprises. Except for a few. The Wolf of Wall Street was shut out completely due to a lack of screenings. Inside Llewyn Davis got nothing as well. American Hustle came away with only two nominations, which is slightly surprising. And Lee Daniels' The Butler and August: Osage County managed to get multiple nominations. Right now, I'm going with American Hustle as the ensemble front-runner, but 12 Years is not far behind. Also, at this point all of the acting races are way too close to call. We're in for a fun Oscar season.
