12 Years a Slave had a leading four nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this morning, but the big surprise was The Butler — which came on strong with three bids of its own.

Also with three nominations each: August: Osage County and Dallas Buyers Club. Among the snubs were Robert Redford, the lone actor in the survival saga All Is Lost, and The Wolf of Wall Street, which got zero nominations.

Contenders for the SAG Awards were announced in both film and television fields this morning. The guild awards are closely watched as an Oscar bellwether since actors are the single largest voting bloc within the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

A nod here can cement an actor’s chances, while a snub can sometimes reveal a fatal lack of momentum. There’s no Best Picture prize, but the Screen Actors Guild’s Best Ensemble award is typically seen as a key stepping stone in that race for that Oscar.

Sometimes the SAG nominations can introduce an actor to the conversation who hasn’t been there before, such as Demián Bichir in A Better Life two years ago. Not much awards attention had been directed at him previously, but after his SAG nod for Best Actor he ended up catching the Academy’s attention, which landed him a nomination alongside eventual winner Jean Dujardin of The Artist.

The SAG Awards ceremony will take place on Sat. Jan. 18, with a live broadcast on TBS and TNT.

The full list for television is featured on the next page, with EW Prize Fighter analysis of the film race to come below…
