Foxx Scores multiple SAG Nominations; Orbach Gets Posthumous Nod

By Ryan Bornheimer

Jamie Foxx emerged as the biggest story of the Screen Actors Guild nominations, which were announced last week.

The nominations honor guild members for their work in feature films and prime-time television over the past year.

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

Mr. Foxx received 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.” His other two noms were for work in the feature films “Ray” and “Collateral.”

Barry Pepper and Geoffrey Rush got nominations for their portrayals of real people. Mr. Pepper was honored for his role as Dale Earnhardt in ESPN’s “3: The Dale Earnhardt Story.” Mr. Rush got his nomination for his portrayal of Peter Sellers in HBO’s “The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.” Mr. Rush’s costar Charlize Theron received a nomination for her portrayal of Britt Ekland in the HBO telefilm.

The late Jerry Orbach was nominated posthumously 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 11th annual awards ceremony will be held Feb. 5 at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center and televised nationally on TNT.
