Guild gold: Actors gather for SAG's big night

By By DAVID GERMAIN

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A puzzling Academy Awards season will sort itself out a bit more on Sunday with the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where top performers gather to honor their own.

Among nominees for the 19th annual guild awards in Los Angeles are Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones for the Civil War epic "Lincoln"; Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway for the Victor Hugo musical adaptation "Les Miserables"; and Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Oscar recipient Robert De Niro for the oddball romance "Silver Linings Playbook."

Honors from the actors union, next weekend's Directors Guild Awards and Saturday night's Producers Guild Awards — whose top honor went to "Argo" — typically help to establish clear favorites for the Oscars.

Airing live on TNT and TBS, the Screen Actors show will also feature nine television categories.
