The actors of the slavery drama "12 Years a Slave" led nominees for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) film awards with four nods including the top prize: best film ensemble cast. The film also earned nods for lead actor Chiwetel Ejiofor. The other films to be nominated for in the top category were: "August: Osage County," which also saw nods for Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts; AIDS drama "Dallas Buyers Club" and its stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto; civil rights tale "Lee Daniels' The Butler" along with Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey; and rounding out the best film ensemble cast, "American Hustle," which also saw star Jennifer Lawrence pick up a supporting actress nod. The SAG awards are among the most-watched honors during Hollywood's busy awards season. They will be handed out in Los Angeles on January 18. With earnings of 125 million dollars (USD), pop singer Madonna is the highest-paid woman in music, easily surpassing Lady Gaga and country-pop singer Taylor Swift, Forbes said on Wednesday. Much of Madonna's earnings from June 2012 to June 2013 were from her worldwide MDNA Tour, which pulled in 305 million. Lady Gaga, with 80 million, jumped from No. 4 to No. 2 this year. While Swift, 23, dropped from second place in 2012 to third this year. Her 55 million in earnings came from sales of her latest album "Red" as well as endorsement deals.
