The nominations for the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced Wednesday morning amid a barrage of media hoopla.
Jeff Daniels, a resident of Chelsea and founder of the Purple Rose Theatre Company, was nominated for best male actor in a drama series.
Daniels is currently filming season 2 of the HBO drama The Newsroom, where he stars as veteran news anchor Will McAvoy, a journalist struggling to find his way in a very partisan news-telling society.
Daniels will take a brief leave from the show to perform a series of live concerts on the Purple Rose stage during the Christmas holidays.
The SAG Awards, which also honors television, will air on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013 at 8 p.m. eastern time on TBS.
