Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations were announced this morning, and post 50 actors are among some of the biggest winners. Actress Maggie Smith, 77, leads the pack in nominations, nabbing four nods in all, while every actor nominated in the "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries" category is 48 or older. Other notable nominees include actors like Denzel Washington, Kevin Costner and Betty White.
The nomination list just further supports the idea that older actors are running Hollywood these days. Of the 50 nominations for individual actors, 27 of the nominees are of the baby boomer generation and 41 of the nominees are age 40 and older.
According to Awards Daily, 55-year-old Daniel Day Lewis responded to nominations for the movie "Lincoln," with this statement: "What a lovely thing for myself, Sally [Fields], Tommy [Lee Jones], and the entire cast to be nominated by our guild." Sally Fields and Tommy Lee Jones are both 66 yearsold.
