While I’m surprised by some of the TV nominations, especially the Dexter cast (which, by and large, isn’t that great) and Homeland and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo got glossed over here after getting a lot of Golden Globe love.  Between the SAG nominations and Globe nominations, you can typically get a good barometer of what will be looked at most by the Academy (especially with SAG, there is a lot of crossover) but the truth is this year is a crapshoot.  I think The Artist is a safe bet for a lot of noms, same with Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, despite the absence here.

The SAG Awards will air January 29th, 2012 on TNT.
