King's Speech still the Oscar frontrunner, leads the SAG Awards nominations

Dec. 16, 2010by: Mike Sampson

THE KING'S SPEECH continues to prove it's a force to be reckoned with this Oscar season as it picked up four nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild awards tying for the top spot with THE FIGHTER, which also earned four noms. While the SAG Awards might not be great at predicting Best Picture, it's notoriously accurate in predicting the acting awards (actors are, after all, the largest voting body in the Academy). Surprises include Hilary Swank getting a nomination for the critically panned CONVICTION, INCEPTION getting completely shut out, Andrew Garfield getting passed over for his supporting turn in SOCIAL NETWORK and little Hailie Steinfeld getting a nomination for her first role in TRUE GRIT. Take a look at all the film nominations below and for a full list including all the TV awards, click here to head to the SAG site.

I'm Perplexed

How is it that Inception is one of the best reviewed, most well received films of the year and is being completely ignored by the awards ceremonies. A complete shame for an industry that struggles for original ideas.

im all about bale winning this

i seriously cant understand how anyone can think that jesse eisenberg's performance in the social network (which was a great film either way) is better than ryan gosling in blue valentine. Other than that it looks like what i would expect and im actually glad to see john hawks and jeremy renner get a nomination but doubt they will be there come oscar time and i agree with everyone else. hilary swank does not deserve this nomination

I don't know what universe this guild is living in where Hilary Swank deserves a nomination for the mediocre "Conviction" over Sam Rockwell, the film's only saving grace. I admit it's not his best work, but he still did a damn fine job considering how weak the script was.

I think Garfield will replace Hawkes come Oscar time though.

Inception not getting nominated isn't a surprise, it's not particularly an actors movie. I'm sure I'll get massive amounts of hate for this but I thought

I'm sure I'll get massive amounts of hate for this but I thought DiCaprio was weak compared to a career best performance in "Shutter Island." Levitt had a fun part but was too stiff and one-note. Honestly, Cillian Murphy gave the best performance in the film but his part was too small to get recognition.

Definitely Colin Firth's year

but I hope The King's Speech doesn't sweep everything in the awards season. Black Swan, Social Network, Kids Are All Right and The Town deserve some recognition. And I'd be happy if Toy Story 3 took Best Picture as a way to honour Pixar for making all those great movies.

Yes, TKS is Oscar bait but it's well done Oscar bait.

Looks like John Hawkes is finally getting that fucking Oscar for his performance in From Dusk Till Dawn.

Marion Cotillard killed it in Inception but isn't being recognized anywhere. Every year there's some hit or miss film that flies under the radar, isn't released nationwide so nobody has seen it but gets a nomination for every single category. Why the fuck does it take 4 months for them to make it into a theater? Some are fantastic and worth the wait (No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, An Education) and some bore the balls out of me (A Serious Man, Michael Clayton).

This is why

This is why people don't give a fuck about the Oscars.

F THIS

Leo Decaprio is getting screwed this year. He has been screwed in the past with blood diamonds but this year should be his year. Shutter island and Inception. He better get nominated for 1 of those 2 come Oscar time.

The nods are good

But I'd rather see any of the other big contenders (Fighter, Toy Story 3, Inception, Social Network, Black Swan) beat King's Speech at the Oscars. I have yet to see it (and I will first chance), but my first impression is Oscar bait.

The King's Speech was great. It's gonna seem like oscar bait because of the style and the themes, but it's actually just a small, little character-driven story—with a really surprisingly funny script—kind of disguised as some big, epic, audience-puller. I think you'll be gladly surprised.

This is more like it...

This is the list I've been waiting for. Golden Globe nominations were just atrocious especially in the Musical/Comedy categories. The only thing I'm really upset about is INCEPTION not getting any love in the Best Performance by a Cast. Andrew Garfield not getting nominated in the supporting category. But that category is tough competition. It will all come down to see who will be nominated for the OSCAR. That's going to be intense. Much better list!

The nominations are good, but could have been better. "Inception" not getting nominated for anything is a crime and I would have liked to see more support for "The Town".

I am dieing to see "The Fighter" with all the oscar buzz I have been hearing.

Finally John Hawks gets some love for his unnerving performance in Winter's Bone. Also, I am happy to see Andrew Garfield not get nominated for SN. If anyone from that movie deserves a supp. nomination it is Armie Hammer. Otherwise these nods are all good in my book.
