The nominations for the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced yesterday morning, and Silver Linings Playbook received a leading four nominations, including Lead Male Actor (Bradley Cooper), Supporting Male Actor (Robert De Niro), Lead Female Actor (Jennifer Lawrence), and Ensemble in a Motion Picture. The stars are already sounding off, thanking the voting committee and their fans for the support and recognition; here’s what Jen said on her nomination:
“It’s so rewarding to have fellow actors recognize my work with this nomination, and to be included in the company of the talented women nominated this year. Finding a great female character to portray is a very fulfilling experience, and I had that with Silver Linings Playbook, and in working David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper. So I guess all that terrible dancing was worth it?”
YES, it was!
