‘The Help’ Snags 4 SAG Nominations

December 15, 2011  |  

Whether you were for or against “The Help,” the film was one of the most talked about movies of the year, and not just for the controversy. Many people praised the performances of the cast and the Screen Actors Guild has taken notice, nominating the film for four SAG awards.

Viola Davis was nominated for her lead role as Aibileen Clark, while Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain will both compete in the Best Supporting Actress category. The film was also nominated for Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture.

The SAGs are usually seen as an indicator of what’s to come for the Oscars, so “The Help” should clean up pretty nicely there, too. Congratulations ladies!

Check out the full list of nominees for the 18th Annual SAG awards, airing Jan. 29, here. What do you think about the nominations?
