Will 2012 be Sofia Vergara’s year?

The sultry Colombian actress received a nod from the Screen Actors Guild Awards Wednesday for her performance as Gloria in the hit comedy “Modern Family.”

It is Vergara’s fourth nomination for the award’s show, though she won in 2010 as part of a comedy ensemble.

Her role as quirky, sassy and flamboyant Gloria has earned Vergara many accolades and a slew of award nominations, but she has yet to take home an individual award (the cast has won several). Last year, there was talk she would win the Golden Globe award, but it went instead to her co-star, Julie Bowen.

Modern Family was the most nominated series with five nods for actors Vergara, Bowen, Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet, as well as outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series.

The SAG nominations are among the first major honors on the long road to the Feb. 26 Academy Awards.

In the movie side, Argentine actress Berenice Bejo was nominated for supporting actress for her role in “The Artist.”  She plays a rising sound-era movie star in the movie, which received three nominations.

Deep South drama "The Help" received four nominations, among them honors for Viola Davis, Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer.

The adaptation of the best-selling novel also was nominated for best ensemble cast, along with the silent film "The Artist," the wedding comedy "Bridesmaids," the family drama "The Descendants" and the romantic fantasy "Midnight in Paris."

The SAG list of contenders and Golden Globe nominees that will be announced Thursday help sort out favorites from also-rans for Oscar voters, whose nominations come out Jan. 24.
