Nominations for the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced this morning just two days after the 2010 Golden Globe Nominations giving us plenty to chew on heading into the weekend. As for surprises I can say there are really only a couple.

First off, one nod that’s not really a surprise is the one that went to Jeremy Renner for The Hurt Locker, most likely edging out Daniel Day-Lewis for Nine. Considering we are talking about actors nominating actors this seems about right. However, Diane Kruger getting a nomination for her performance in Inglourious Basterds is a bit of a surprise, especially as she’s beating out her co-star in that film Melanie Laurent, not to forget Marion Cotillard in Nine, both performances I believe are more deserving. Don’t expect Oscar to follow suit with that choice.

The other nominations causing me to scratch my head are those for Christopher Plummer and Helen Mirren in The Last Station. Both are perfectly fine in that film, and it’s a good film, but to say they deserve award recognition over the likes of Christian McKay, Alfred Molina or Peter Sarsgaard on Plummer’s side is silly, or Marion Cotillard in Nine for Mirren’s is a bit of an oversight.
