This year’s Screen Actor’s Guild nominations were announced for feature films and television and some big names made the list. Kerry Washington was nominated for her role in ABC’s "Scandal" while Angela Bassett got the nod for her appearance in the Lifetime TV movie "Betty and Coretta." Lupita Nyong’o, this year’s breakout star from "12 Years a Slave" also nabbed a nomination for her supporting role in that film.
The awards will take place on Saturday, January 18 and the list of nominees itself is a big deal because it often mimics the Oscar nomination list. Read more about black actors of note over Shadow and Act.
