SAG nominees include Dexter, Mad Men

The Screen Actors Guild took time out of its strike talk to release this year's nominees for its annual SAG Awards, and one would be hard pressed to find a shocker among the bunch. The usual names are all there, but we'll list them off for you anyway.

In the Drama Series actor category, Boston Legal was twice represented, with William Shatner and James Spader both getting nods for the series' last season. Hugh Laurie (House), Michael C. Hall (Dexter), and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) will also be vying for the trophy. Four of the nominees were also nominated last year; Shatner replaces James Gandolfini, who probably would have been nominated if The Sopranos were still airing.

On the ladies' side, Sally Field continued her nomination domination for Brothers & Sisters. Also included were TNT's familiar faces Holly Hunter (Saving Grace) and Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer). That trio was also nominated last year. Rounding out the five were Mariska Hargitay for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Elisabeth Moss for Mad Men.

Both male and female comedy categories were almost identical to last year. Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Steve Carell (The Office), Jeremy Piven (Entourage), and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) are all repeats from 2007's list, and will be joined this year by David Duchovny (Californication). In fact, the four repeats were also all nominated two years ago.

The women also saw four repeats: Tina Fey (30 Rock), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Christina Applegate (Samantha Who?), and Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds). Tracey Ullman joins this year for Tracey Ullman's State of the Union.

Ensemble nominations went to Boston Legal, Dexter, House, Mad Men, and The Closer in drama, and 30 Rock, Desperate Housewives, Entourage, The Office, and Weeds in comedy.

The SAG Awards--not one to shake things up. The ceremony will be held on January 25. Who is your money on?

Mariska Hargitay better get it. Seriously, I'll be cut as if she doesn't.
She should have gotten the Emmy last year for "Undercover". She did so well in that episode.

How is it that "Battlestar Galactica" cannot get a Ensemble nomination but dreck like "Boston Legal" does? Is it because they film in Canada? Is it simply because the people don't like SCI-Fi? It is unbelievable that this cast has never been nominated for anything. What other show gives a Supermodel (Tricia Helfer) difficult nuanced material that she consistently knocks out of the park? "Desperate Housewives" is a stupid show that is hardly a comedy. "Entourage" hasn't been funny in about two years. Why not give a nod to something that is actually funny and awesome like "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"? Also, the day that Mariska Hargitay puts in a better acting job than Mary McDonnel on "Battlestar Galactica" will be the first time.

Summer Glau should have been nominated for her magnificent portrayal of Cameron the machine from the future.

Are you kidding me? The Closer gets nominated for best ensemble and not Battlestar Galactica or Lost?

Not a lot new here then. I'd like to see David Duchovny get something.

I hope the Office wins the ensemble cast and Steve Carrel takes out the comedy actor. Michael C Hall deserves the nod for Dexter and Tina Fey should win the comedy actress award.

Boston Legal had a phenomenal final season. Every episode was top notch and the talent outstanding. Kudos to them!

Nice to see Dexter in among the nominanees! It would be great if there were more variety as far as who was nominated year after year, because it just ends up being that popularity contest you fondly remember from junior high and high school days.

ZZZZZZZZZZZ nominate some other actors already. The men and women of Battlestar Galactica. Nip/Tuck. Supporting cast from Rescue Me or The Office. Jane instead of Tina. Anyone! I've had enough of Steve Carrell and usually enjoy The Office when he's not onscreen. But that's just me.

Friday Night Lights ignored again. An ongoing travesty.

Also really happy that Tony Shalhoub was nominated. He is really excellent in Monk.

I'm really disappointed Julia Louis Dreyfuswas snubbed! She has to be the most underrated actress on TV today. I hope she catches a break next year at the Emmys!

House, Hugh Laurie and Monk all the way!!!

I'd like Dexter to win. I can't believe Samantha Who? has been nominated that show is crud.
