WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — The math-genius drama "A Beautiful Mind" and the family-tragedy thriller "In the Bedroom" led nominations Tuesday for Screen Actors Guild awards with three each.
Russell Crowe, star of "A Beautiful Mind," received a best-actor actor nomination for playing schizophrenic mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr., and co-star Jennifer Connelly, who plays Nash's wife, got a top-actress nomination.
Sissy Spacek was nominated for playing a grieving mother in the dark suburban tale "In the Bedroom," and Tom Wilkinson, who plays her angry husband, got best-actor mention. "A Beautiful Mind" and "In the Bedroom" also were nominated for best ensemble performance, the Actors Guild equivalent of the Academy Award for best picture.
Other top ensemble nominees are "Gosford Park," "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." and the revisionist musical "Moulin Rouge."
In the television category, NBC's "The West Wing" and HBO's "The Sopranos" each got four nominations.
Ed Asner is scheduled to receive a lifetime achievement award at the eighth annual awards ceremony March 10 at the Shrine Theater in Los Angeles. TNT plans to televise the show live.
