“The King’s Speech” won the coveted Ensemble award at tonight’s 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
‘Speech’ didn’t just nab that award, SAG’s closest equivalent to a Best Picture, but Colin Firth took home the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role award as well. This gives the film the hat trick of taking out the top DGA, PGA and SAG awards.
Handouts went as expected with Natalie Portman taking Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo won the supporting actor awards for their work in “The Fighter”. “Inception” took home an Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble award.
On the TV front, Martin Scorsese’s “Boardwalk Empire” scored best ensemble cast in a drama series and a best actor in a drama series nod for Steve Buscemi’s work. Julianna Margulies won best actress in a drama for “The Good Wife”. On the comedy side “Modern Family” won best ensemble, Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”) won best actor in a comedy, Betty White (“Hot in Cleveland”) won best actress in a comedy, while Al Pacino (“You Don’t Know Jack”) and Claire Danes (“Temple Grandin”) won the best acting awards for the TV movie/mini-series category.
