The Winners of the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
The Screen Actors Guild has just finished handing out their annual awards, with the expected result of Aaron Sorkin's marvelous "The Trial of the Chicago 7" taking the top award for Best Cast in a Motion Picture.
The only major surprise ended up being Viola Davis winning Best Actress for "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," a category that was thought to be a fight between Carey Mulligan for "Promising Young Woman" and Frances McDormand for "Nomadland." Andra Day won the Golden Globe for "The United States vs. Billie Holiday," while Mulligan won the Critics' Choice Award, with Mulligan and McDormand being the two clear popular choices of the season, so as to who will be winning the Oscar next month remains a big mystery (though SAG usually does a pretty good job of pointing the way).
Over on the TV side, everything went almost exactly as expected, with "The Crown" and "Schitt's Creek" taking the Cast prizes. The only partial surprise came when Jason Bateman won Best Drama Actor for "Ozark," beating presumed winner Josh O'Connor for "The Crown".
The last two major stops before the Oscars are this weekend, with the Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday, April 10th and the BAFTA Awards on Sunday, April 11th, so be sure to check back for a list of winners.
