Doubt kicks some SAG Ass [Oscar Watch]

The SAG nominations were announced this morning, Doubt leading the way with five nominations. Kate Winslet should be a happy camper this morning, scording two nods, one for Revolutionary Road and one for The Reader. I'm sad to see no Sally Hawkins - is this because Happy Go Lucky was a British film? I also thought we'd see Rosemarie Dewitt at least on this list for her performance in Rachel Getting Married. Fine with no Clint Eastwood or Kristen Scott Thomas on the list, as I haven't seen either of those films and do not plan on seeing them any time soon. Also snubbed from supporting actress - Marisa Tomei. Should be interesting to see who ultimately falls into the Actress categories. I do wonder where Michael Shannon is. I've heard nothing but amazing things about his performance in Revolutionary Road, but he is barely popping up on any nominations or awards lists. And will Robert Downey Jr. really score an oscar nod for Tropic Thunder?

On the television side, Jon Hamm & Elisabeth Moss and that's all there is to it.
