"House of Cards," the Maryland-made Netflix political drama that was shut out in Golden Globes nominations this week, picked up a couple today from the Screen Actors Guild.

Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright were nominated for best performance by a male and female actor, respectively.


But the drama itself was not nominated.

The five series nominated for best ensemble performance in a drama were: "The Crown," "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Westworld" and "Stranger Things."


In addition to Spacey, the nominees for best performance by a male are Sterling Brown ("This Is Us"), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"), John Lithgow ("The Crown") and Rami Malek ("Mr. Robot").

Brown has two nominations. The other is for his work in the mini-series "The People vs. O.J. Simpson."

Wright's competition for best performance in a drama by a female actor Millie Bobby Brown ("Stranger Things"), Claire Foy ("The Crown"), Thandie Newton ("Westworld") and Winona Ryder ("Stranger Things").

The awards ceremony will be broadcast on TNT and TBS Jan. 29.
