The King’s Speech And Boardwalk Empire Big Winners At The 2011 SAG Awards

There was a big shock in the SAG movie categories last night when The King’s Speech pipped The Social Network to the most coveted award of the night – best cast in a motion picture. Whether this means The King’s Speech is likely to win best picture at the Oscars is uncertain. However it is likely that The Social Network and The Kings Speech are the two who will fight it out for best picture at the Academy Awards on feb 27th.

All the acting movie categories appear firmly fixed. Colin Firth won best actor for The King’s Speech and Natalie Portman won best actress for Black Swan. Furthermore The Fighter won best supporting actor and best supporting actress for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo respectively.

With regard to TV winners, there were a few shocks in the Comedy series category. Alec Baldwin beat Chris Colfer to win his fifth SAG in a row for best comedy actor, once again for 30 Rock. Betty White pipped Sofia Vergara and Jane Lynch to best comedy actress for Hot In Cleveland. Also for best ensemble in a comedy series Modern Family edged out Glee to win the major award.
