Well, so much for The Tourist's Golden Globes momentum

Nominations today for the Screen Actors Guild Awards were way less wacky, but still surprising.

Who got in? Who didn't?

Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right, The King's Speech and The Social Network, legit Oscar contenders all, will vie for Outstanding Motion Picture Ensemble, the SAGs' version of Best Picture. 

Notably left on the outside looking in was Inception, which netted just one nod, for stunts. And, yes, that means that once again Leonardo DiCaprio, who put himself out there for both Inception and Shutter Island, got nothing.

Competing Motion Picture Lead Actor race instead of DiCaprio are three Golden Globe holdovers: The King's Speech's Colin Firth, The Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg and 127 Hours' James Franco. Also nominated: Jeff Bridges, who was not to be denied any longer for True Grit; and, actor's-actor Robert Duvall, for the indie Get Low.

Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) and Natalie Portman (Black Swan) are Lead Actress candidates whose names should familiar from Tuesday's noms. Rounding out the field is Conviction's Hilary Swank, who is snubbed no more.

SAG voters did not hit the "like" button for The Social Network's Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield, at least as far as individual nominations went. Fresh faces who broke through in the supporting-acting categories included Lost alum John Hawkes, up for Winter's Bone; and, 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, who holds her own against Bridges in True Grit.  

Elsewhere, 30 Rock, Glee, Modern Family, The Office and the Betty White-goosed Hot in Cleveland are up for the top TV award for ensemble acting. White continued her hot streak by scoring an individual nomination, too.

Like the poor DiCaprio, the poor, late Lost remained missing in action. And Glee's ostensive leads, Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele, got bypassed in the individual acting categories by stand-out supporting players Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch

Look for Lynch to be joined on the red carpet by Modern Family pals, and fellow nominees, Sofia Vergara and Ed O'Neill, the latter of whom got some extremely rare awards-show love.

Winona Ryder stoked comeback talk with two nods, one for the TV movie, When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story, and the other for being part of Black Swan's ensemble cast.

For those keeping score at home, Globe favorites The Tourist and Burlesque combined for exactly zero nominations.

The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are set for Jan. 30.
