I think they also have that award at the Emmy's. If I'm right, that award went to The Office recently.

I totally agree. When they had the Emmy nominations, the first thing I did was to scan through and see if she was nominated. Her performance of the first lady was stellar - very memorable. :clap I knew Jean Smart had been in all kinds of stuff, but this was the first time she caught my attention. She is a huge part of why 24 was so good this past season. I can't imagine it would have been nearly as good without her. It's a pity she didn't get a Globe nomination.

As for Beyonce getting a nod as Best actress....It should be Jennifer as Best actress not supporting as she was the star of Dreamgirls. Beyonce was good but not enough for a nod. ( Good movie..go see it!!!)
I would have loved to see Rudy Youngblood get a nod , he was the lead it Apocolypto..he was terrific.
Actually, if I were you, I would be glad that Jennifer is nominated in the supporting actress category. The Golden Globes categorize their awards differently. They have a Best Actress for musical/comedies and one for a drama.... you get what I mean. But at the Oscar's, the Best Actress is categorized into one.

That's just it, CrossingGuard. There's so many excellent atresses in the Best Actress category that Jennifer would have slim to no chance of an award like Beyonce's chances are. However, in the Supporting Actress category, she actually has some chance of winning. Which, in my opinion, she deserves over Beyonce.
Hollywood producers pick best film nominees
Wed Jan 03, 9:44 PM ET
The Producers Guild of America picked a wide range of nominees on Wednesday for 2006's best film, including musical "Dreamgirls" and crime thriller "The Departed," giving all the movies a boost in Hollywood's Oscar race.
Comedy "Little Miss Sunshine," cultural drama "Babel" and "The Queen," about Britain's royal family, were the other best movie nominees.
The list features a diverse group of films in both genre and budget size, which contrasts to last year when many low-budget dramas were considered among the year's top films.
"Dreamgirls," for instance, is a flashy Hollywood musical with big-name stars such as actor Jamie Foxx and singer Beyonce Knowles. By contrast, "Little Miss Sunshine," was made outside Hollywood's studio system for a around $8 million.
"I love the variety -- the mixture of dramas, a musical and a comedy, and the fact that you have big budgets and small budgets," said Producers Guild Executive Director Vance Van Petten.
The association of film and television producers is among the industry's top organizations, and Hollywood watchers follow its nominees closely when tracking movies competing for Oscars, the film industry's top honors.
The Guild also nominated the makers of five films for best animated movie: "Cars," "Happy Feet," "Ice Age: The Meltdown," "Monster House" and "Flushed Away."
For best U.S. TV drama, the organization picked the producers of hospital programs "Grey's Anatomy" and "House," crime shows "24" and "The Sopranos," as well as "Lost."
The nominees for top TV comedy produced "Arrested Development," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "The Office," "My Name is Earl" and "Weeds."
Among other TV awards it will give out are best "non-fiction" -- reality or news -- program. Competitors for that award include the producers of talent contests "American Idol" and "Project Runway," "The Amazing Race 9," "Dancing with the Stars," and venerable news program, "60 Minutes."
Nominees for best "long-form" TV program include "Mrs. Harris," "High School Musical," "Elizabeth I," "Bleak House" and "Flight 93."
The Producers Guild names its winners in a ceremony in Los Angeles on January 20. The Oscars are handed out by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on February 25.
SAG nominations came out today. Thoughts?

Personally, pretty happy with these choices, minus a few surprises. Though I'm not sure the time period they're based on? Because I would have thought perhaps Heroes stood a chance.
Glad to see Chandra Wilson got a nomination. She's awesome on Grey's. The show would definitely not be the same without her.
That its a vindication--and maybe a happy sign for the Academy Awards--that Jennifer Hudson got nominated in her category and Beyonce didn't. It also shows that SAG might actually be nominating on actual performances more than what the studios are pushing...

Along with the SAG award snub, Beyonce is also out of the running for the Best Song Oscar should "Listen" get a nomination.
Beyonce has learned that she won’t receive an Oscar, even if her signature track ‘Listen’ from forthcoming film ‘Dreamgirls’ wins in the February ceremony.
As reported on MTV, Academy rules stipulate that only three writers can be recognized for the category of Best Original Song, and in this case Beyonce misses the cut.
The decision as to who receives the three nods is made by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; if there are more than three writing credits for a track then they decide which of the writers contributed the most.
Beyonce was judged to have contributed the least to ‘Listen’, putting her out of the race for an Oscar for Best Original Song.
However it’s not all bad: Beyonce is tipped as a contender for Best Actress.
All will be revealed when the nominations are announced on January 23rd.
I would have sympathy for her if she hadn't made such backhanded compliments about Jennifer when discussing Dreamgirls. Link
