'American Beauty' Plucks 4 SAG Film Nominations

February 02, 2000|SUSAN KING | TIMES STAFF WRITER

DreamWorks and ABC received the most Screen Actors Guild nominations in the feature and television categories, the guild said Tuesday. "American Beauty" led the pack of movie nominations with four for DreamWorks; ABC shows received nine SAG nominations.

"The Sopranos," "Ally McBeal," "The X-Files," "NYPD Blue" and "Frasier" are among the TV series with multiple nominations.

There were a few surprises in the feature film categories, with Philip Seymour Hoffman receiving a best actor nomination for his role as a transvestite in the little-seen comedy "Flawless." Noticeably absent from the best actor and actress nominations were Golden Globe nominees Richard Farnsworth ("The Straight Story'), Matt Damon ("The Talented Mr. Ripley") and Reese Witherspoon ("Election").

The Screen Actors Guild's approximately 97,000 members will vote on the acting categories. The winners in the 13 categories will be announced during a ceremony to be telecast March 12 on TNT from the Shrine Exposition Center. Sidney Poitier will receive the 36th annual life achievement award during the telecast.
