’30 Rock,’ ‘Betty,’ ‘Sopranos’ Top SAG’s List

Dec 20, 2007  •  Post A Comment

“30 Rock,” “Ugly Betty” and “The Sopranos” lead the pack in television nominations announced today for the 14th annual Screen Actors Guild awards.
All three series walked away with three nominations. Both “30 Rock” and “Ugly Betty” received nods for ensemble cast for a comedy and lead female performance in a comedy (Tina Fey for “30 Rock,” and America Ferrera and Vanessa Williams for “Ugly Betty”). Last year’s winner for lead male in a comedy, Alec Baldwin, was again nominated for “30 Rock.”
Both shows are competing against “Desperate Housewives,” “Entourage,” and “The Office” in the category of ensemble cast in a comedy series. With the exception of new addition “30 Rock,” the entire field was nominated last year, with “The Office” taking home the award.
“The Sopranos” received nods for drama cast ensemble and lead performance in a drama series for both James Gandolfini and Edie Falco.
Winner at this year’s Emmys for drama series, “The Sopranos” squares off with “Boston Legal,” “The Closer,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Mad Men” for ensemble cast in a drama series.
ABC led the networks in total nominations with 11. HBO was a close second with nine. Fox brings up the rear of broadcast network nominations with just one, for “House’s” Hugh Laurie in the lead actor, drama series, category.
The awards, airing live on TNT and TBS on Jan. 27, are voted on by a portion of the SAG membership. The nominations are chosen by panels of 2,100 randomly chosen guild members, one for TV and one for film.
