Smaller pics loom large as SAG applauds its own

16 January 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Turning a blind eye to most of the season's big epic movies, SAG chose to lavish nominations for its 10th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on smaller movies about little people -- quite literally in the case of Miramax Films' The Station Agent, which made an unexpectedly strong showing. Agent earned a best actor nomination for its leading man, the 4-foot-6-inch Peter Dinklage, who plays a misanthropic dwarf who inherits a train station; a best actress nomination for Patricia Clarkson, who portrays a lonely divorcee; and an ensemble acting nom for its cast, which also includes Bobby Cannavale, Paul Benjamin, Raven Goodwin and Michelle Williams. In the category of outstanding performance by a male actor in a lead role, Dinklage will face off against Johnny Depp, who commands the seas as a flamboyant pirate in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl; Ben Kingsley, who stars as an Iranian immigrant defending his home in House of Sand and Fog; Bill Murray, who headlines as an actor adrift in Tokyo in Lost in Translation; and Sean Penn, who faces the loss of his daughter in Mystic River. Dinklage and Murray are first-time SAG nominees, while Penn has been nominated twice before in the category. »
