A Nurse Jackie Community
Sunday 9:00 PM on Showtime

Awards season is on the horizon, which means there will soon be a lot of pretty people asking us to love them and praise them for all the joy they've brought to our lives over the last year simply by appearing on the shows we love. The Screen Actors Guild kicked things off bright and early this morning with nominations for the 20th Annual SAG Awards, which will be simulcast on TNT and TBS on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 8pm.

Breaking Bad leads the nominees with four nods, including Best Actor for Bryan Cranston and Best Actress for Anna Gunn (who took home the Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama earlier this fall). HomelandGame of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, and Veep also earned multiple nominations. 

And in case you're struggling to keep all of these different awards shows separate, the SAG Awards are the ones that mean the most because they're voted on by other actors. 

Here are your nominees in the major TV categories; for the full list, head on over to SAG's website
