The Screen Actors Guild Awards took place in Los Angeles Sunday night.
"The King's Speech" has won the best-actor trophy for Colin Firth and a second honor for its overall cast at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The two prizes Sunday capped a weeklong surge of Hollywood honors for the British monarchy saga, which is building momentum for the Feb. 27 Academy Awards, where the Facebook drama "The Social Network" previously had looked like the favorite.
Natalie Portman earned the best-actress award at the Screen Actors ceremony for "Black Swan," while "The Fighter" co-stars Christian Bale and Melissa Leo swept the supporting-acting honors, boosting their own prospects come Oscar night.
"Modern Family" earned the TV comedy ensemble award, Betty White won best TV comedy actress for "Hot in Cleveland" and Alec Baldwin won his 5th straight Screen Actors Guild Award as TV comedy actor for NBC's "30 Rock."
