The math genius drama "A Beautiful Mind" and the family tragedy thriller "In the Bedroom" each had a leading three nominations Tuesday for Screen Actors Guild awards.
Russell Crowe, star of "A Beautiful Mind," received another actor nomination for playing schizophrenic mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr., and co-star Jennifer Connelly, who plays Nash's wife, had a top actress nomination. Both won Golden Globe Awards earlier this month for their roles.
Sissy Spacek had an actress nomination for playing a grieving mother in the dark suburban tale "In the Bedroom," and Tom Wilkinson, who plays her angry husband, had a best actor mention.
"A Beautiful Mind" and "In the Bedroom" also had best ensemble performance nominations, the Actors Guild equivalent of the Academy Award for best picture.
Other top ensemble nominees are: "Gosford Park," a British murder mystery featuring more than 30 characters; the fantasy yarn "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring"; and the revisionist musical "Moulin Rouge."
The Screen Actors Guild awards focus exclusively on performances and do not recognize the work of producers, directors or writers.
In the television category, NBC's "The West Wing" and HBO's "The Sopranos" each had four nominations, including best ensemble drama. Other ensemble drama nominees are: CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," NBC's "Law & Order" and HBO's funeral home drama "Six Feet Under."
"West Wing" stars Martin Sheen, Stockard Channing and Allison Janney had acting nominations along with "Sopranos" stars James Gandolfini, Lorraine Bracco and Edie Falco.
The CBS sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond" led comedy nominees with a best ensemble mention and nominations for star Ray Romano and co-stars Peter Boyle and Patricia Heaton. Other comedy ensemble nominees are: HBO's "Sex and the City" and NBC's "Frasier," "Friends" and "Will & Grace."
Ed Asner was scheduled to receive a lifetime achievement award at the 8th annual awards ceremony March 10 at the Shrine Theater in Los Angeles. TNT plans to televise the show live.
