Kate's Brit Gong Battle

Kate Winslet will be fighting it out with her fellow Brits at this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards.

It'll come as no surprise that her competition includes Helen Mirren and Judi Dench.

But the three Brits will have to beat off Meryl Streep and Penelope Cruz if they want to take home the best actress award.

Leonardo DiCaprio could have a good night as well, he's nominated in the best actor category for Blood Diamond and also the best supporting actor group for The Departed.

In the TV world, Hugh Laurie got a nod in the best actor in a drama category for his role in House. Kiefer Sutherland is among his competition for 24.

Only one Desperate Housewife received a nomination for best comedy actress this year... step forward Felicity Huffman.
