(CNN) -- The Screen Actors Guild announced it nominations for the 16th annual SAG Awards Thursday, with "Precious" and "Up in the Air" earning three nominations each. Both films also picked up multiple Golden Globe nominations this week.

"Inglourious Basterds," the Quentin Tarantino feature starring Brad Pitt and Diane Kruger, also was nominated for three SAG awards.

In the outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series category, there were six nominations instead of the usual five.

SAG also lauds respected industry veterans for career accomplishments and humanitarian efforts with a Life Achievement Award, which will go to Betty White in 2010. The comedic actress and animal rights humanitarian will accept her award during the SAG Awards, which will be simulcast live January 23 on TNT and TBS.

The SAG Awards are the only industry honors that solely recognize performers.
