The Screen Actors Guild nominations are a family affair!

Jake wasn’t the only Gyllenhaal to score a nod on Wednesday, and he called in to PEOPLE Now to share his enthusiasm not just for his nomination, but for sister Maggie‘s, too.

Gyllenhaal, 33, is up for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role for his turn as Louis Bloom in the upcoming Nightcrawler – and he thinks it’s an “honor.”

“Particularly this kind of nomination,” he adds, “from people who actually do what you do and know the odd, fascinating process of creating a character.”

The actor’s process for this particular role involved a drastic 30-lbs. weight loss.

However, he seemed just as thrilled by his sister’s nomination for outstanding performance by a female actor in a television movie or miniseries for The Honorable Woman, calling her performance “extraordinary.”

Watch the video above to find out whether the siblings will be hitting the SAG red carpet together – and who takes longer to get ready.

The 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will air on both TNT and TBS on Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
