Screen Actors Guild Awards

The nominees for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have just been announced today. Yet another awards show in the very top tier (which also includes the Golden Globes and Academy Awards) is the Screen Actors Guilds Awards, where the actors themselves choose the best performances from amongst their peers. These nominees are usually very similar to those at the Oscars, so this may be a good indication. The two films with the most nominations are The King's Speech and The Fighter, but their choices this year are damn good, exactly what I expected and wanted to see. Check out a full list of film nominations below.

I'd really love to The King's Speech take just about everything this year, but I'd also prefer Mila Kunis and Christian Bale in the supporting categories. All of the performances nominated above were incredible and they all deserve to be on here. I'll be happy with whoever ends up winning. We'll keep you updated on the latest awards news coming up this season. For now, all we've got are the Golden Globe nominations, too.

    Finally, some recognition for Mark Ruffalo! He was one of the best things in that movie.

    the green zone...robin hood?????? someone tell me how those movies got on the list...
  • LMFAO
    Now these are nominations.

    Really think "The Town" should be up there for ensemble cast.
  • Al
    What a great year for ensembles. I think each cast nominated is dynamite, but The Way Back and Inception are just as great. Haven't seen True Grit yet, but I figure thats another fantastic ensemble. What a year for acting.
  • Leonard Abel
    Really getting tired of De Caprio getting ignored. What Shutter Island AND Inception weren't enough?
  • LMFAO
    Why didn't INCEPTION get nominated for best ensemble? Ensemble stunts?... wtf is that shit?
  • Akirakorn
    Ensemble stunts... Jackass 3D? Come on, it would be hilarious if they got a SAG. They do deserve a major award by now. The second and third films were the best comedies of their year. I've NEVER been to a another movie that got constant laughs and cheers from start to finish, and they did it twice. Anything close were A-Team, Borat, and Bruno; although traditional films do have to leave room/screen time for the story.

    I seriously dont understand why people think the kings speech should sweep every award this year. Its too safe for me. Its the obvious award bait movie that people love this year but will eventually forget. I mean 10 years from now do you think people will be talking about the kings speech or inception as the best movie of 2010? I know unfortunately it probably will win every award its nominated for because if it's a movie about royals in England then by default it must win right?
  • Tim R. Rothman
    I really think Barbara Hershey was fantastic in Black Swan and deserves an Oscar for her performance.
  • Said
    Really I think Green Zone deserve to be in every Award out there yes it came in the beginning of the year but its really a great film and the ensemble cast were excellent It's shame that it didn't get the attention that it deserve they always want to play it safe for the awards it's powerful film.
  • David Darida
    I think that InceptionĀ“s cast was picked up very carefully and definitely should be nominated.
  • Another win for Natalie!
  • I really liked Colin Firth in The King's Speech.
