SAG Colin Firth Colin Firth won the Screen Actors Guild award on Sunday for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading film role for "The King's Speech."

He has been on a roll this awards season — winning the Golden Globe and several critics honors — and positions him as the one to beat at the Oscars next month. He was competing against Jeff Bridges for "True Grit," Robert Duvall for "Get Low," Jesse Eisenberg for "The Social Network" and James Franco for "127 Hours."  

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.
