"It's fun to be an actor, but as everybody in this room knows, it's a true privilege to be a working actor," Norton said.
Also nominated in the category were "Boyhood," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game" and "The Theory of Everything."
Last year four of the five nominees had more than 10 cast members, with the award going to the cast of 11 credited for "American Hustle." This year only "The Grand Budapest Hotel," with 17, had a cast of more than 10, with just four actors credited for "Boyhood." "Birdman" had a credited cast of seven.
All five of Sunday night's nominated films are also nominated for the Oscar for best picture, along with "American Sniper," "Selma" and "Whiplash." Anyone looking for Oscar prognostication from the night's events might note that last year all four of the individual film actors recognized by the SAG Awards went on to win the Oscar, while the winner of the cast award did not. Though "American Hustle" took home the SAG Award, the Oscar for best picture went to "12 Years A Slave."
