'12 Years a Slave' tops SAG Awards noms

Awards season has officially started! Nominations for the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced Wednesday, with a few big names leading the pack.

"12 Years a Slave," the unflinching portrayal of slavery in America that has garnered rave reviews, snagged four nominations -- the most of any movie. The Steve McQueen film received nods for Best Ensemble Cast, Best Male Actor in a Leading Role for star Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Best Supporting roles for Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o.

Other big film winners include "Lee Daniels' The Butler," "August: Osage County," and "Dallas Buyers Club," all of which earned three nods, including Best Ensemble.

AMC's hit "Breaking Bad" led the television pack with four nominations, including Best Ensemble Cast in a drama series and a Best Actor nod for Bryan Cranston. "Homeland," "Boardwalk Empire," "Scandal," and "Game of Thrones" also picked up nominations in the drama category, including nods for Kerry Washington, Claire Danes and Peter Dinklage. Rita Moreno will be presented with the Life Achievement Award during the January 18 telecast.

Showbiz Tonight will have more on the nominations at 12 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
