Echoing the Golden Globe nominations, The Fighter and The King's Speech led the pack of Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees with four noms each, including best film ensemble, a sort of SAG equivalent of the Oscars' best picture category. They're joined by ensemble nominees Black Swan, The Kids Are All Right, and The Social Network. On the TV side, Modern Family was atop, also with four noms. The Hollywood Reporter points out that Fighter star Mark Wahlberg was notably overlooked; Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Melissa Leo all earned supporting actor noms.

In other snub news, E! notes that (not unpleasantly) Globe-nominated The Tourist and Burlesque got zero nods; Leonardo DiCaprio got nada for Inception or Shutter Island; and Glee leads Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele were left in Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch's dust. Click for more SAG nominees.
