Leonardo DiCaprio continues his pre-Oscar awards-season dominance, leading the pack with three Screen Actors Guild nominations: He earned a lead actor nod for Blood Diamond (pictured), while his role in The Departed earned him recognition in the supporting and ensemble-cast categories. The rest of the movie nods were spread pretty evenly with Babel, Dreamgirls, and Little Miss Sunshine grabbing three noms each. Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson added strength to her Idol-loser-cum-movie-star Cinderella story by grabbing two nominations for Dreamgirls.

In TV, HBO cleaned up (again) with a whopping 10 nominations, while NBC matched ABC's eight nods, thanks in large part to comedies My Name Is Earl and The Office, which grabbed a pair each. ABC newbie Ugly Betty also fared well with two nominations. Not faring so well: the now Raymond-less CBS, which was saved from a shutout by a sole nom for Julia Louis-Dreyfus in The New Adventures Of Old Christine.
