    Both Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill snagged nominations for their sports drama "Moneyball."

    The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Award nominees have been announced and, if you couple them with the Independent Spirit Award noms and tomorrow's announcement of the Golden Globe nominees, it starts to give you a clearer picture of the upcoming Oscar race.

    Where the Indie Spirit Awards (not surprisingly) focused on newer faces like Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, and Elizabeth Olsen, the SAG line-up features much more familiar names like Clooney, Pitt, DiCaprio, Streep, Close, and, well, Betty White.

    The SAG Awards themselves will be handed out on January 29th at 8 PM (ET) on TNT and TBS. Here's who may be in line for a "Saggy" (Not really. But could you imagine?)
