The dark show-business comedy "Birdman" topped the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations with four, including best ensemble cast.

Star Michael Keaton was recognized for his work, as well as supporting co-stars Emma Stone and Edward Norton.

Following with three nominations each were the coming-of-age tale and critics award favorite "Boyhood," the Alan Turing biopic "The Imitation Game," and the Stephen Hawking story "The Theory of Everything."

All were recognized for their ensemble casts and individual performances. Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke earned nods for "Boyhood"; Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne for "The Theory of Everything"; and Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley for "The Imitation Game."

"Foxcatcher" received two nominations for actors Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo.

“Modern Family” led the television nominations with four, including Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet for male actor in a comedy series, Julie Bowen for female actor in a comedy series, and ensemble cast.

The SAG Awards nominations, announced early Wednesday, were selected by two panels — one for film and one for TV — each comprising 2,200 randomly selected SAG-AFTRA union members.

The SAG Awards will be presented on Jan. 25.
