SAG Awards nominations have been announced, and leading the pack is 12 Years a Slave. The film received four nods: lead actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor), supporting actor (Michael Fassbender), supporting actress (Lupita Nyong’o), and the biggest trophy of all, cast ensemble (often a bellwether for Best Picture at the Oscars). Next up were August: Osage County, The Butler, and Dallas Buyers Club with three nominations each, including cast ensemble. The final nominee for cast ensemble: American Hustle. Winners will be announced Jan. 18; see Variety for the full list of nominations.
