The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild nominees were announced Wednesday morning in Los Angeles, and all the biggest stars are reacting to the huge honor.
"It is very gratifying that SAG has chosen to honor the work of all of the actors in SLP [Silver Linings Playbook]," Robert De Niro, who scored a nod for Best Supporting Actor for Silver Linings Playbook, tells ET in a statement.
Silver Linings Playbook tied with Lincoln for the most Screen Actors Guild nominations (four) in January's highly anticipated ceremony, including Best Ensemble, a Best Actor nomination for Bradley Cooper and a Best Actress nomination for Jennifer Lawrence.
"Being recognized by your peers is something I could only dream of happening and to be included in this group of actors is not only humbling but quite frankly, surreal," says Cooper. "But the greatest gift, was to be a part of an ensemble that was nominated and the cast, which spans more people than are noted -- Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker, Shea Whigham, Julia Stiles, Dash Mihok, Paulie Herman, Anupam Kher, Brea Bee, John Ortiz and all of the local actors from Phili who showed up and knocked it out of the park."
"It's so rewarding to have fellow actors recognize my work with this nomination, and to be included in the company of the talented women nominated this year. Finding a great female character to portray is a very fulfilling experience, and I had that with Silver Linings Playbook, and in working David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper. So I guess all that terrible dancing was worth it?," Lawrence jokes.
"What an honor and a thrill to get love from my fellow actors. I couldn't feel happier or prouder to be in this cast -- special congratulations to Hugh! Vive Les Miz! and all the SAG nominees!," Anne Hathaway, who's nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Les Miserables, says in a statement.
"Of course, I am deeply flattered to be nominated for another season of 30 Rock," says Alec Baldwin, who's nominated for Best TV Actor, Comedy.
"Thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild, it's an enormous honor as an actor to be recognized by your peers. I'm thrilled to share this nomination with the incredible Jacques Audiard and Matthias Schoenaerts and the entire Rust and Bone team, and especially Tom Bernard and Michael Barker at Sony Pictures Classics for bringing the film to US audiences," says Marion Cotillard, who's nominated for Best Actress for her performance in Rust & Bone.
"I am very honored to be nominated with my fellow rogues and vagabonds," says Helen Mirren, who's nominated for Best Actress for her performance in Hitchcock.
The 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards will air live on TNT and TBS on Jan. 27 from the Shrine Auditorium & Exposition Center in Los Angeles.
