    Nominees for the 17th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced today. Despite the praise for its cast, Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls failed to earn a nomination in the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture category. The film adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s groundbreaking 1974 choreopoem was also overlooked by The Golden Globes.

    The cast included Janet Jackson, Kimberly Elise, Loretta Devine, Thandie Newton, Phylicia Rashad, Tessa Thompson, Whoopi Goldberg, and Macy Gray.

    The SAG awards are considered by many to be a forecast of how the Oscar nominations will play out. Winners will be announced when the 17 Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are broadcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011, at 8 p.m. ET.
