Actors honoring actors

Early this morning in L.A., the Screen Actors Guild announced nominees for the annual SAG Awards given to film and TV thespians. Leonardo DiCaprio and Helen Mirren each landed two nominations. But many others -- including Jack Nicholson of The Departed -- are conspicuous by their absence. And it appears that SAG voters weren't terribly impressed by Sacha Baron Cohen's star turn in Borat. (Well, either that or they didn't think what Baron did qualified as acting.)

FYI: Film and TV nominees were chosen by two groups of 2,100 people randomly chosen from the guild's 120,000 members. The guild's full membership is eligible to vote for winners (which will be announced Jan. 28 during ceremonies cablecast on TNT and TBS).
