Julie Bowen Modern Family

Julie Bowen Modern FamilyJulie Bowen Modern Family, Screen Actors Guild Awards for film are typically an excellent predictor for the Oscars, the same can’t always be said of SAG’s relationship to the Emmys. But both kudos groups agreed this year on “Modern Family,” which won five Emmys and is nominated for a leading five SAG Awards: Best Comedy Ensemble, Best Comedy Actor (Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet), and Best Comedy Actress (Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara). Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O’Neill were the only adult cast members left out, but that’s not surprising because SAG combines lead and supporting actors into one category.

Burrell and Stonestreet face off against Alec Baldwin, who has never lost the category; this could be his sixth consecutive victory for playing Jack Donaghy on “30 Rock,” which received two other nominations this year: Comedy Ensemble and Comedy Actress (Tina Fey).

Steve Carell, who departed “The Office” last spring, received a pair of farewell bids for Comedy Ensemble and Comedy Actor; he has won twice as a member of the “Office” ensemble, but has never claimed individual honors. At this year’s Emmys, he was upset by Jim Parsons, who won his second consecutive trophy for “The Big Bang Theory,” but Parsons has never been embraced by SAG, and this year is no exception; though “Big Bang” broke through for the first time in the Comedy Ensemble race, Parsons was left out of the Comedy Actor lineup.

The last Comedy Actor contender is Jon Cryer, a surprise nominee for “Two and a Half Men”; he’s been nominated for six Emmys winning once, but this is his first nomination from the Guild. Is it possible sympathy for the Charlie Sheen controversy pushed him over the top?

Joining “30 Rock,” “The Office,” “Big Bang,” and “Modern Family” in the race for Comedy Ensemble is 2010 champ “Glee.” Last year, Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer were also nominated for this musical comedy but the scene-stealers were snubbed this time around.
