17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Nominations — Film
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.
Jeff Bridges, True Grit
Robert Duvall, Get Low
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech
James Franco, 127 Hours
Winner: This is Colin Firth’s award. Count on it all season long for his compelling turn in The King’s Speech.
Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Hilary Swank, Conviction
Christian Bale, The Fighter
John Hawkes, Winter’s Bone
Jeremy Renner, The Town
Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right
Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech
Winner: Again, and we hate to start sounding like a broken record, but when it comes to the acting performances of 2010, the awards in 2011 will all sound familiar. Christian Bale wins for Supporting Actor in The Fighter…get used to hearing that over and over and over!
Winner: So we don’t repeat ourselves, simply put: The winner is Melissa Leo for The Fighter.
