(AP)  The Roman Catholic drama "Doubt" leads contenders for the Screen Actors Guild Awards with five nominations, including honors for Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis.

The announcement Thursday also includes a supporting-actor nomination for the late Heath Ledger, whose maniacal turn as the Joker in "The Dark Knight" has made him an Academy Awards front-runner.

Streep has a lead-actress nomination, while Hoffman, Adams and Davis are competing in supporting categories for "Doubt," a war-of-wills tale between an old-school nun and a progressive priest.

"Doubt" also has a nomination for overall cast performance, along with "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Frost/Nixon," "Milk" and "Slumdog Millionaire."
