Squeezed in between the Golden Globes broadcast and the Oscar nominations is an awards ceremony voted on solely by the actors. (So unlike the People’s Choice Awards, this actually has meaning.)

  • Despite no individual mentions, freshman comedies and Glee were both honored in the Best Ensemble category.

  • received its first nom—but just for its cast, not for any single actor.

The will air Saturday, Jan. 23 on both TNT and TBS.
