SAG Nomination Reactions (In Brief)

As I suspected, the film nominees are very excited but the TV ones just aren't. For starters, only one new show was recognized, and it wasn't "Breaking Bad," "In Treatment," or "True Blood." Voters finally decided to recognize David Duchovny (Californication) and the ensembles of "Dexter" and "House" (as well as "The Closer" again). The real shocker is Tracey Ullman (State of the Union) to fill the last comedy actress slot) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) instead of January Jones in the drama field. Not much more to say about all this. My Internet's down, so read the nominees at your leisure here.

I was very happy to see the SAG's recognize David Duchovny. He is just wonderful as Hank Moody. I doubt he will win, but, i'm still hoping he does. It is one of the smartest, funniest shows on TV in MHO.

I'm thrilled that Duchovny made it in as well. Not predicting him was my way of sucking it up and being realistic, but what a pleasant surprise! This is a terrific list of nominees in my opinion, and they're all continually great on their respective shows. There's no reason Duchovny can't win this year; the important thing to note is that only Baldwin and Shalhoub have won before (each twice) and so this time it might be up in the air. I'll make predictions then, but right now I'd say it's Duchovny or Piven.
