'Black Panther' Triumphs With Top Prize At SAG Awards

24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards- Show

The SAG Awards recognise outstanding performances in film and prime time television as decided by the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists - basically, it's actors voting for actors. Oh also earned an Emmy nomination a year ago for her role as Eve on BBC America. ("Crazy Rich Asians") and Yvonne Strahovski ("The Handmaid's Tale"), who are both nominees this year, will announce the honorees for outstanding action performances by film and TV stunt ensembles during the official pre-show. Mahershala Ali received the trophy for best supporting actor in a movie for his role as jazz pianist Don Shirley.

Ahead of this year's show, the Screen Actors Guild also took the unusual step of publicly criticising the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for pressuring stars to appear only on the Oscars. "We knew that we could create a world that exemplified a world we wanted to see".

"We know what it's like to be told there isn't a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on". It won best ensemble in a comedy series, as well as individual honours for Rachel Brosnahan and Tony Shalhoub, whose win was a surprise in a category that included Bill Hader ("Barry") and Michael Douglas ("The Kominsky Method").

It is also good news for Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek, who took out best actor in a leading role in a motion picture, the win cementing his race for Oscar glory against Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Willem Dafoe and Viggo Mortensen, who are all legitimate contenders.

"It may never, ever have been more urgent to see the world through another person's eyes", Alda said, noting the divisive present political landscape.

"SAG also recognized M*A*S*H" TV star Alan Alda with a lifetime achievement award. "Actors can help, just a little, by just doing what we do".

Zola backs Higuain to hit the ground running
This is not a team that is desperate but it needs to add certain qualities to what it already has. I said I am in trouble because it's very hard to motivate them, but I didn't want to attack them.

10-year-old wins science fair with project on Tom Brady cheating
Brady has steadfastly denied the allegation and ended up helping the Patriots win Super Bowl LI after serving his suspension. He's had to prepare for eight Super Bowls, not including the upcoming Lombardi Trophy decider against the Los Angeles Rams.

As the Oscars wrestle with various issues, the SAG Awards seemed to sidestep all of those landmines and controversies.

"Oh baby, what a fun night we had!"

Rabara, 35, who voices Peridot on the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe", took to her Instagram stories as the couple headed to the award show hosted by Megan Mullally.

The Amazon series "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" won the first three awards handed out Sunday, sweeping the comedy series awards.

If the SAG Awards have a peculiarity it is that they tend to favour "the actor's actor" over actors who might be, for example, more likely to catch the eye of the broader industry.

Jason Bateman won best actor honors for dark Netflix drama "Ozark", while Sandra Oh triumphed for her work on BBC America drama "Killing Eve".
