Favoring studio specialty pics, the Screen Actors Guild has tapped Paramount Vantage's "Babel," Weinstein Co.'s "Bobby," Warner Bros.' "The Departed," Paramount's "Dreamgirls" and Fox Searchlight's "Little Miss Sunshine" as nominees for its top feature ensemble award.

No single film dominated the nominations, announced Thursday morning by Sandra Oh and Elijah Wood at the Pacific Design Center in Hollywood.

Leonardo DiCaprio repeated his Golden Globes feat of scoring two feature nominations with a best lead actor nod for "Blood Diamond" and a supporting actor nom for "The Departed." And Helen Mirren received nominations for both her roles as British royalty as lead film actress for "The Queen" and lead actress in a TV movie or miniseries for "Elizabeth I."

Mirren, who won a SAG supporting actress award for "Gosford Park," will compete in the lead actress category with Penelope Cruz in Sony Classics' "Volver," Judi Dench in Searchlight's "Notes on a Scandal," Meryl Streep for Fox's "The Devil Wears Prada" and Kate Winslet for "Little Children." Cruz is the only nominee among the quintet who hasn't previously won a SAG trophy.

SAG will announce the winners, voted by the 120,000 guild members, on Jan. 28 in ceremonies at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

And the nominees are...

I saw "Blood Diamond" last week. If Jennifer Connelly doesn't get a nomination for this film come Oscar time, something is definitely wrong.

This movie should be doing better than it is right now at the box office. Guess not everyone wants to see a movie where children are depicted as soldiers.

I thought it was done very well. DiCaprio is making very good choices (a lot of people thought he would go down after "Titanic") and Djimon Hounsou is doing very well for a man who started out being homeless, turning into a real powerhouse actor.

The only problem I have with these nominations is that Nicholson didn't get nominated for Best Supporting actor for The Departed. But since DiCaprio will be most likely on the Oscar ballot in the lead actor category, Jack will probably get the Oscar nom (Knock on wood). He's still my pick to win!

Some of these movies are coming back in theaters during the next two weeks. "Babel", "The Queen", and "The Departed" all have wide Academy runs coming up. "Bobby", which is turning out to be a surprise nominee in nearly all award ceremonies, may come back as well.
