Jan 11, 2005  •  Post A Comment

Jamie Foxx emerged as the biggest story from The Screen Actors Guild’s Tuesday announcement of nominations for its 11th Annual Awards ceremony honoring guild members for their work in feature films and prime-time television over the past year.

Otherwise, critics’ favorites were the order of the day as cast members from such well-regarded shows as “The Sopranos,” “Arrested Development” and “The West Wing” scored nominations in some of the eight television categories.

Mr. Foxx scored nominations in three categories, including a nod for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for his role as Stanley “Tookie” Williams in the FX biopic “Redemption.”

Barry Pepper and Geoffrey Rush each got nominations for their portrayals of Dale Earnhardt and Peter Sellers, respectively. And Rush’s costar Charlize Theron scored a nomination for her portrayal of Britt Ekland in HBO’s “The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.”

Also noteworthy was the posthumous nomination of Jerry Orbach for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. Mr. Orbach, who died Dec. 28, scored a nomination for his portrayal of Det. Lennie Briscoe on the long-running NBC drama “Law & Order.”

The awards ceremony will be held Feb. 5 at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center and televised nationally on TNT. The following is a complete list of the television nominations.
