Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook battle over SAG nominations

The Screen Actors Guild has spoken. It has unveiled the nominees for its 2013 ceremony. In film, Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook dominate, while TV’s all about Modern Family and Homeland.

Silver Linings Playbook

The nominees for the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Wednesday morning. Unlike the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Lincoln wasn’t the sole bread winner. It shares that honor with the David O. Russell dramedy, Silver Linings Playbook.

Lincoln and Playbook received four acting nominations, in the same categories. They’re both up for Best Ensemble, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of stiff competition to take them down.
