The Screen Actors Guild handed out awards for the 17th time tonight with The King’s Speech and The Fighter each taking home two wins.  Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech won awards in the “Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture” (more or less, SAG’s equivalent to the Academy’s “Best Picture” category ) and “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role” for Colin Firth.  Meanwhile, David O. Russell’s The Fighter dominated the supporting categories by landing “Outstanding Performance in a Supporting Role” awards for both Christian Bale and Melissa Leo.  In what should be (in my opinion, at least) an open-shut case for the Academy, Natalie Portman was awarded “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role” for her stellar work in Black Swan.

For those wondering what, if any, effect the SAG Awards may have on the eventual Academy Awards, it’s important to note that the event is believed to be a better gauge of Oscar winners than its most recent predecessor (the Golden Globes).  This is because the Screen Actors Guild is comprised mostly of American actors (the largest branch of the Academy) as opposed to the Globes which is made-up of a smaller group of foreign journalists known as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  Long story short (though certainly not etched in stone), look for The King’s Speech to take home Best Picture next month.

Hit the jump to check out the complete list of winners (television included) from the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

    damn! i hoped King’s Speech will take PGA, then Fincher will win in DGA, then the Fighter will win best ensembled. this is just a weird year. now this year will always be remembered as the year a film dominated every award show, and i mean EVERY award, then suddenly loses the 3 major award show that predicts the Oscars.

    FUCK! it’s not even like Brokeback Mountain where Ang Lee won best director at DGA. or Steven Spielberg won for Saving Private Ryan. Now it looks like our beloved David Fincher won’t win best director after Hooper won the DGA award. Man i always thought directors were the smart branch where they don’t think of a film’s heart to be a great film. i mean, directors adore, or to give a better term worships Stanley Kubrick. that DGA win was really shocking.
