The King’s Speech takes home two SAG awards

As does The Fighter

king's speech

Oscar-nominated films The King’s Speech and The Fighter came out victorious at yesterday’s Screen Actor’s Guild awards, each film taking home two trophies a-piece.

The cast of The King’s Speech earned themselves the Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture trophy, as well as the Outstanding Actor award for Colin Firth.

A typically gracious Firth thanked security "for letting me into the building". This man better get a shot at an Oscar acceptance speech.

Meanwhile, The Fighter’s Christian Bale and Melissa Leo each grabbed a gong for Outstanding Supporting Role.

Elsewhere, Natalie Portman’s frazzled, electrifying turn in Back Swan garnered her an Outstanding Leading Role award. She thanked her parents for teaching her to "never be an asshole".

On the TV front, the cast of Martin Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire won the Outstanding Ensemble In A Drama Series, while Alec Baldwin and Al Pacino both won big for their respective roles in 30 Rock and You Don't Know Jack.

As a sign of how things should play out at this year’s Oscars, attention and love is clearly being lavished upon The King’s Speech, The Fighter and Black Swan. It’ll be between those three at the Oscar ceremony on 27 February, if SAG’s anything to go by.
