'Birdman' nabs four Screen Actors Guild noms

Posted on

Birdman led the Screen Actors Guild with four nominations, including a nod for Best Ensemble Cast. Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Emma Stone were each recognized in their respective categories. Also named for Best Ensemble, the SAG’s version of Best Picture, were: Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, and The Theory of Everything. Each of those nominated films—except Budapest Hotel—also had two acting nominations.

Mark Ruffalo and Benedict Cumberbatch both earned two nominations each, for their work in film and television. Jake Gyllenhaal nabbed a Best Actor nomination, giving him some credibility for what is perceived to be the fifth slot in one of the Oscar’s most competitive categories. And Jennifer Aniston officially slipped into the Best Actress race, with a nomination for her performance in Cake.
