Colin Firth's much-lauded drama The King's Speech has notched up yet another award nomination, this time from the Producers Guild of America.

The film joins Facebook tale The Social Network, sci-fi blockbuster Inception and Danny Boyle's survival story 127 Hours among the best picture nominees.

Other contenders are the Natalie Portman thriller Black Swan, the boxing saga The Fighter and the family tale The Kids Are All Right.

Also in the best picture nomination list for the awards - typically seen as a close match of top Oscar contenders - are the heist thriller The Town, Toy Story 3 and True Grit.

Meanwhile, TV nominees included Glee, 30 Rock, Mad Men and Dexter.

Winners will be announced in a ceremony on January 22, just three days before Academy Awards nominations come out.

The King's Speech, which stars Colin as stammer-afflicted King George VI, is also an Oscar front-runner. It leads Golden Globe nominees and is tied with The Fighter for the most nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
