LOS ANGELES – The Screen Actors Guild flashed some independence with its annual awards nominations Thursday, citing performers from outside-the-mainstream movies such as “The Station Agent,” “Whale Rider” and “In America.” Besides best ensemble — the guild’s equivalent to a best picture category — “Mystic River” was recognized for Tim Robbins’ supporting turn as the survivor of childhood sexual abuse who finds himself the suspect of murder and Sean Penn received a lead actor nomination for playing an ex-con. Other ensemble contenders: “In America,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” and “Seabiscuit.” [More]
