'12 Years A Slave', 'Breaking Bad' Lead 2013 Screen Actors Guild Nominations

Ah, December: The month when all the awards buzz that's been circulating throughout the year starts to solidify into actual nominations. 12 Years a Slave has been considered a strong favorite to win the season since moment it premiered at Telluride, and this morning the Screen Actors Guild threw their support of the slavery drama by nominating four times over.

August: Osage County, Lee Daniels' The Butler, and Dallas Buyers Club made strong showings as well, with three nominations each. On the TV side, Breaking Bad proved itself the show to beat, with three. Hit the jump to read all the names.

The nominations list contains a few nice surprises. It's great to see, for example, that the guild has made room for Captain Phillips' Barkhad Abdi and Rush's Daniel Brühl in a crowded field.

On the flip side, it's disappointing that Oscar Isaac and Brie Larson have apparently gone unnoticed by SAG, despite their stellar performances in Inside Llewyn Davis and Short Term 12, respectively. All Is Lost, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Saving Mr. Banks also failed to garner recognition for their strong casts. (Well, just Robert Redford in the case of All Is Lost.)

Perhaps the biggest shocker from the TV side is the omission of Mad Men, though star Elisabeth Moss did manage to snag a well deserved nomination for Top of the Lake. The Emmy-nominated Girls was snubbed yet again, and acclaimed new shows like Orange Is the New Black and Masters of Sex were sadly unable to gain any traction.
