"The King's Speech" stutters back into the race

I did not see this coming. I thought The Social Network was on the same roll that The Hurt Locker found itself on this time last year. But, by winning the Producers Guild award for best best picture, The King's Speech is creeping up on the outside in this race. I don't think it has overtaken The Social Network yet, but it is making the race a little more interesting. I stil think the Directors Guild award will tell us a lot as will the SAG awards if either of the two front-runners win it. (Last year SAG gave its best picture equivalent to Inglourious Basterds and I hear the actors are leaning to The Fighter this year.)
