SAG Awards Nominees Announced
The casts of "The Help" and "Modern Family" were the most honored as the nominees for the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were unveiled Wednesday morning. Judy Greer of "The Descendants" and Regina King of TNT’s "Southland" announced the nominees via a live webcast.

In the film categories, "The Help" earned the most nominations with four: Viola Davis for lead female actor, Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer for supporting female actor, and one nod for best ensemble. Rounding out the best ensemble category were "The Artist," "Bridesmaids," "The Descendants," and "Midnight in Paris"—the last of which was honored despite having received no nominations for individual performances. Films that did receive multiple individual nominations but missed out on a best ensemble nod included "J. Edgar," "Moneyball," and "My Week With Marilyn."

ABC's "Modern Family" led all television series with five nominations, including Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet for best male actor in a comedy, Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara for best female actor in a comedy, and best comedy ensemble. No drama series received more than two nominations.

Two actors received multiple nominations this year—Glenn Close for her performances in the film "Albert Nobbs" and the DirecTV series "Damages," and Betty White for her turns in TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland" and the CBS television movie "Hallmark Hall of Fame: The Lost Valentine."

The SAG Awards will be broadcast live Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. on TNT and TBS. The nominees are:
