SAG Awards Nominations: 'The Artist,' 'Bridesmaids' And 'The Help' Films To Beat

Posted: Updated:

It's been one crazy year for film and TV and now it's time to see how our favorites made out in SAG nominations. "The Artist," which has pretty much bought up real estate on awards alley, scooped up three nominations. But the list might throw some award oracles for a loop. "Drive," this year's uber-violent favorite, was conspicuously absent -- not even so much as a scorpion-stitched jacket for Albert Brooks' decidedly un-cuddly role. What the what? (Yeah, "30 Rock" did well.)
