Melissa McCarthy And Bridesmaids Nominated for 2012 SAG
One of my favorite actresses, Melissa McCarthy of Bridesmaids fame has been nominated for a 2012 SAG as Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
I first fell in love with Melissa for her role as Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls. In real life Melissa is totally unlike the character she plays in Bridesmaids. Her character in Bridesmaids was very rough and tumble but in real life she is known to be very sweet and a girly girl.
Melissa's competition in the Supporting Role category includes Bérénice Bejo as Peppy in The Artist, Jessica Chastain as Celia Foote in The Help, Janet McTeer as Hubert Page in Albert Noobs and Octavia Spencer as Minny Jackson in The Help.
The Bridesmaid film was also nominated for Outstanding Performance By A Cast in a Motion Picture and is competing against The Artist, The Descendants, The Help and Midnight In Paris.
Nominees were announced today (on December 14, 2011) from the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, CA at 9am EST.
One of the awards season’s premier events, 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live coast to-coast on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012, at 8 p.m. (ET), 7 p.m. (CT), 6 p.m. (MT) and 5 p.m. (PT) from the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles.
