SAG spreads its love to “King’s Speech,” “The Fighter”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Now we have a race.

Instead of falling in line with the major critics groups, which crowned David Fincher’s “The Social Network” as the year’s best film, the Screen Actors Guild this morning divided its love between “The King’s Speech” and “The Fighter,” bestowing each with four major nominations including Best Ensemble.

This on the heels of the HFPA honoring “Speech” with the majority of its noms, and the BFCA giving a record number of nominations to “Black Swan.”

So is the two-horse race between “The Social Network” and “The King’s Speech” really a four-horse race? Can “The Fighter” continue to build momentum and play spoiler? Or will a fifth contender – say, “Rabbit Hole,” “Toy Story 3” or SAG Ensemble nominee “The Kids Are All Right” – rise up in the weeks leading up to the Oscars?

Here are the major SAG nominees:

”Black Swan”
