"It's been a very crowded landscape, and a lot of these nominations have been split," said "Dallas Buyers Club" producer Robbie Brenner. "Critics have been split.... Because it's such a crowded landscape we thought we'd be recognized in certain categories — Matthew and Jared have been getting recognized a lot. But it's a huge honor to be nominated [for cast].... Anything can happen. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but the outpouring of emotion is overwhelming."

Awards watchers will have more to debate when the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. announces the Golden Globes nominations Thursday morning.

The SAG Awards will be handed out Jan. 18.
