SAG Awards: Christian Bale wins for 'The Fighter'
It's been a good run for Bale: Two weeks ago, he won the Golden Globe for his performance as drug-addled boxer. Surprising Bale on stage as he accepted the award was Dicky Eklund, the real-life boxer Bale portrayed. "Thank you for letting me play you," Bale told him.
Bale was competing against John Hawkes for "Winter's Bone," Jeremy Renner for "The Town," Mark Ruffalo for "The Kids Are All Right" and Geoffrey Rush for "The King's Speech."
The awards — which dole out honors in both TV and film — are being held at the Shrine Exhibition Hall and telecast live simultaneously on TNT and TBS. A win in the feature film categories is especially coveted: It can be a precurser to Oscar gold. We'll carry all the breaking news and headlines here on Awards Tracker.
