SAG Awards: Who will win?

The Fighter Best Ensemble17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Nominations — Film


Black Swan
The Fighter

The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech
The Social Network

Winner: All worthy winners, The Kids Are All Right is a study in acting perfection. The King’s Speech ensemble is truly three players and could easily win. The Social Network has a cast that rocks Aaron Sorkin’s words, but we think the best ensemble of these five films is The Fighter. We can’t imagine that film without each and every actor as they were cast. But, in the end, the award will go to The King’s Speech.
