Screen Actors Guild nominations announced

Black Swan and The King's Speech lead the nomination for this year's 17th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The psychological thriller, which stars Natalie Portman as a ballet dancer experiencing a mental trauma, and the Tom Hooper-directed drama starring Colin Firth as Britain's King George VI both received nominations in four categories, including Best Cast in a Motion Picture and Leading Actor for the main stars.

Supporting cast on both movies, Mila Kunis in Black Swan and Geoffrey Rush in The King's Speech, also received nods for their work.

The Fighter is also up for four awards in three categories, including Best Cast in a Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actress for both Amy Adams and Melissa Leo, and Best Supporting Actor.

Comedy drama The Kids Are All Right, about a lesbian couple and their two children's sperm donor father also received two nominations in the film categories.

In the TV categories, Jane Lynch has received another nomination for her portrayal of angry sports coach Sue Sylvester in Glee in the Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series, while newcomer Chris Colfer - who portrays gay school student Kurt Hummel - is up for Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series.

Other notable inclusions are Mad Men stars Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss for Best Actor and Best Actress in a TV Drama Series.

Ernest Borgnine, the 93-year-old actor best known for play Quinty McHale in 1960s TV series McHale's Navy, is to be given the Life Achievement Award for his career.
