'Flags of Our Fathers,' 'Dreamgirls,' 'Ugly Betty' & 'Studio 60' Among Many Nominated for Satellite Awards
"Babel," which stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, earned seven award nominations, but only Rinko Kikuchi is named in the acting categories, securing a Best Supporting Actress honor for her role. Leonardo DiCaprio earned two acting nominations - a Best Actor nod for Blood Diamond and a Best Supporting Actor honor for The Departed.
And controversy seems to have served Sacha Baron Cohen and Mel Gibson well - the British funnyman lands a Best Actor nod in the Comedy or Musical category, while Gibson's Apocalypto is among the Best Foreign Film nominees.
In the Satellite Awards' TV categories, acclaimed new drama Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip and the Salma Hayek-produced Ugly Betty lead the way with four nominations apiece.
Secured for honors at the International Press Association gala on December 17 are the cast of The Departed (Best Ensemble, Motion Picture), the cast of medical TV drama Grey's Anatomy (Best Ensemble, Television) and actor Martin Landau, who will be presented with the Satellite's Mary Pickford Award For Outstanding Artistic Contribution.
