  1. Yay! Congrats! At least the Screen Actors Guild knows good comedy! Suck on that, Golden Globes! hehe. Too bad, no nods for Jenna, Rainn or John. Congrats to the entire cast! You guys deserve it! WOOHOO!!!

  2. I would hope that if there is not resolution of the strike by then that the WGA boycotts and pickets the SAG awards just as they are planning to do to the Globes, and likely the Oscars.

  3. finally some awards love. It is about time. I actually think that “ensemble cast” is the true greatness of this show. It’s not so much about the individual performances, but how every single actor adds something special.

  4. Crossing my fingers and hoping for a repeat because these people deserve it more than anyone. Not only are they great on screen, but they care about their fans and are honest-to-goodness nice people in real life.

  5. I am so happy for The Office, and I hope both the show and Steve take home the awards. A thought just came to me, what if this season really is over? If we have to wait until next September for new episodes, I wonder how award shows will handle that. There won’t be many episodes to pick from…

    I guess that’s worst case scenario. Just something I was thinking…

  6. This is awesome news, and I SO hope they win again this year. But I’m disturbed by the fact that Melora Hardin’s name is missing from the list. Does anyone know why this might be? She is obviously a vital part of the ensemble cast…why wouldn’t she be included in the nomination? She was last year.

  7. I am so happy for everyone on The Office!! I am sure that they will win both awards, I love The Office cast, yeah, yeah, yeah!!!

  8. Amanda – I thought the same thing. Craig Robinson also isn’t listed. I thought they determined this by who’s credited as being regular castmembers but maybe because they both haven’t been in as many eps as the others they aren’t included in the list this time?

    In any case, yes, they are definitely the greatest ensemble on TV. I really hope they win (and Steve does too) and if they do I wonder who’ll give the speech? Steve gave a great speech last year.

  9. I noticed that about Craig and Melora missing too. I hope it is just an oversight and will be corrected by the time awards are presented.

  10. Congrats cast!

    As far as Craig and Melora missing, I believe Craig was bumped up this season to series regular right? I know SAG has some requirement that they can appeal for cast nominations if they’ve been in six episodes in the new season or something like that (i.e. what happened to Creed last year). I’m not sure if Melora was demoted since we haven’t really seen her so far this season…

  11. thats awesome. good for them.

  12. GO TEAM GO! Woo-hoo for the office (that I’m missing terribly!) They deserve to win and so does Steve Carell!
