KELLY GIRL ''Chicago'''s Zeta-Jones nabbed an Actor

''Chicago'' continued its steamroller path to the Oscars by winning three trophies at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, including Best Ensemble (an award for the whole cast), Best Actress (Renée Zellweger), and Best Supporting Actress (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor for ''Gangs of New York.'' Oscar oddsmakers will surely take note.

The SAGs, now in their ninth year, are considered a valuable Academy Awards predictor since the guild members who vote for them are largely the same people who vote in the actors' branch of the Academy. (The SAGs are also unique in that the ceremony is mercifully brief; Sunday's gala, which aired live on TNT from Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium, handed out just 13 competitive awards, and a lifetime achievement honor for Clint Eastwood, in just over two hours.)

On the TV side, ''The Sopranos'' and ''Will & Grace'' picked up two awards apiece, for Best Actor and Actress in the Drama and Comedy categories. Jokes flew about James Gandolfini's lawsuit and contract dispute with HBO, with ''Everybody Loves Raymond'''s Brad Garrett quipping that he was about to audition to replace Gandolfini in the series, and Gandolfini himself accepting his award by insisting that, despite the current dispute, he was grateful to HBO for its role in his career.
