Los Angeles — The actors of Iran hostage drama "Argo" and drama "Lincoln" were among the top nominees for the Screen Actors Guild film awards on Wednesday, with both landing in the category for best ensemble cast.
Joining them among nominees for best movie cast - the organization's top prize - were the actors of musical "Les Miserables," comedy "Silver Linings Playbook," and British film "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."
The Screen Actors Guild, or SAG, awards are among the most-watched honors during Hollywood film awards season leading up to the Oscars, which will be given out in February, because actors make up one of the largest voting groups for Oscars.
The SAG awards will be given out in Los Angeles on Jan. 27 and shown live on TV networks TBS and TNT.
