2009 Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations (TV)

Mad Men

Even though SAG members are currently debating whether to strike, today’s award nominations gave them all a brief distraction. If the upcoming Oscars telecast doesn’t go on as planned, next month’s Screen Actors Guild Awards (scheduled for January 25th on TNT and TBS) could be the last time actors have a reason to celebrate.

Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from this year’s list of television nominees:

  • 30 Rock, Boston Legal, The Closer, John Adams and Mad Men all scored three noms each.
  • Dexter is up for its first win in the Outstanding Drama Series Ensemble category.
  • Desperate Housewives - a nominee for Best Ensemble - received no individual honors.
  • Debra Messing (The Starter Wife), Kevin Connolly (Entourage), January Jones (Mad Men), Anna Paquin (True Blood) and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) all received Golden Globe nominations, but no SAG noms.

2009 Golden Globe Nominations (TV)

True Blood

Although the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was forced to cancel last year’s party, the Golden Globes will finally make its return next month. The 66th annual event is scheduled to air Sunday, January 11th, just over a week before the Academy Award nominations are announced.

Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from this year’s list of TV nominees:

  • HBO, with its 22 nominations, once again led the pack.
  • In Treatment and Recount, both from HBO, had five nominations each - the highest number for any program this year.
  • House is the only non-cable program to be up for Best Drama.
  • True Blood is the only new series to receive any nods.
  • Kiefer Sutherland and 24 received nominations for the show’s 2-hour special.

MONDAY (2/25)
  • A Raisin in the Sun (ABC, 8pm):  and the rest of his Broadway cast bring the play to the small screen.  I’m sorry - I believe his theater name is Sean Combs.
  • The Moment of Truth (FOX, 8pm):  Special night.  Apparently this episode is so controversial, the producers debated airing it.  Then they realized what network they were on and just went with it.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Hope makes some new friends so she won’t be alone on Friday nights.” Their names?  Jack and Daniels.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  “The women receive a surprise visit from JC Chasez.”  They, too, are wondering why he doesn’t have anything better to do.
