SAG Nominations: Lincoln, Les Miz, and… Paperboy?

Nicole Kidman lands a nod for her unhinged performance in Lee Daniel’s ‘The Paperboy’

The Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations were announced this morning, and as there so often are, there were snubs and surprises galore. Perhaps the most surprising was Nicole Kidman’s nomination for her supporting role in The Paperboy. A campy romp of a film, Lee Daniel’s follow-up to the Oscar-nominated Precious was by no means a critical darling. Another thing it’s not? Boring. It’s racey, lurid, and sexy—all-out trashy, even—and Kidman dives right in. The sight of Kidman peeing on Zac Efron may drop jaws, but if that’s not an actress committed to her craft, then I don’t know what is.

Another surprise nominee was Javier Bardem, whose titular villain not only (allegedly) had the hots for Daniel Craig’s Bond, but was one of the most completely realized villains the 50-year-old franchise has seen to date.

In all, David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, and Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables topped the list of nominees with four nominations each.

The full list below:
