We are in the throngs of movie awards season, and Joaquin Phoenix better step up his campaigning.

The actor — who gave a phenomenal, powerhouse performance in “The Master” — didn’t make the short list of nominees for male lead actor on Wednesday when the Screen Actors Guild announced the nominations for their 19th annual awards.

The nominations give us a keener glimpse of who could make the short list of Academy Award nominees, to be announced Jan. 10.

The male lead actor race overall is a decidedly fierce one, with many strong performances this year. The omission of Phoenix from the SAG noms could lessen his chances for an Oscar nod. But at the same time everyone will be talking about how he didn’t get nominated, which could win him free publicity.

Three films received four nominations each, leading the pack: “Lincoln,” “Les Miserables” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” definitely boosting their Oscar prospects.

The SAG Awards will be presented Jan. 27.

Here are the nominees for the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild awards:
