SAG Awards: Melissa Leo wins for 'The Fighter'

January 30, 2011 |  5:36 pm

Melissa Leo won the Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday for outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role in a motion picture for "The Fighter" as the mother of two boxers. It's the first SAG win for Leo, but two weeks ago she also won the Golden Globe for supporting actress for the role.

"This has been an extraordinary season for me," Leo said. She was competing against Amy Adams, also in "The Fighter," Mila Kunis for "Black Swan," Helena Bonham Carter for "The King's Speech" and Hailee Steinfeld for "True Grit."

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.
