Viola Davis is a four-time Screen Actors Guild Award® nominee and two-time recipient of the Actor® in 2012 for her lead performance as Aibileen Clark and as a cast member in “The Help.” Davis’ previous nominations were for her supporting and cast performances in “Doubt” opposite Meryl Streep. She was recently seen in “Won’t Back Down” and will next star in the drama “Beautiful Creatures” opposite Emma Thompson.

Anne Hathaway, who just received a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Fantine in “Les Miserables,” earned her first SAG Awards nomination in 2006 as a cast member of Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain” and her first lead female actor nod in 2009 for “Rachel Getting Married.” This year, she’s nominated twice: As supporting female actor in “Les Miserables” and as a member of the film’s cast. In 2012, Hathaway starred opposite Christian Bale in director Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Next year, she will give voice once again to Jewel the macaw in the animated sequel “Rio 2.”

Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe winning actor Hugh Jackman is a two-time SAG Awards nominee this year for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables” and as a member of the film’s cast. In July, audiences will see him reprise the role of Wolverine in the 6th installment of the “X-Men” franchise, “The Wolverine.” He is currently filming “Prisoners” with Melissa Leo, Jake Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis, directed by Denis Villeneuve.

In 2010, Jennifer Lawrence earned her first SAG Award nomination for her performance in “Winter’s Bone.” The Golden Globe recipient is a double nominee this year, as lead female actor in “Silver Linings Playbook” and as a member of the film’s cast. Lawrence became a household name with her role as Katniss Aberdeen in the blockbuster “The Hunger Games” and will reprise the role later this year in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” She’ll also reunite with her “Silver Linings” co-star Cooper in “Serena.”

Justin Timberlake earned his first SAG Award nomination in 2011 as a cast member in “The Social Network.”  Last year, he appeared in “Trouble With the Curve,” alongside Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. Up next is a co-starring role in Joel and Ethan Coen’s film, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” with Carrie Mulligan and Oscar Isaac, and the thriller “Runner, Runner” with Ben Affleck.
