“Inception” was actually the most-awarded overall film, as it took home five technical awards and Best Action Movie. “The Fighter” was honored in the acting category three times, with both Best Supporting awards and the Ensemble award. Natalie Portman and Colin Firth each took home the lead acting awards for “Black Swan” and “The King’s Speech,” respectively, which also won for Best Original Screenplay.
