Recap of the 24th Annual SAG Awards

It was a star-studded evening on January 21 in Los Angeles at the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Hosted by Kristen Bell, the SAG Awards honored some of our favorite movie and television actors that we’ve all come to know and admire.

Crime thriller, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, won “Outstanding Performance by a Cast” in a Motion Picture. The film’s Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand brought home awards for “Outstanding Performance by a Male/Female Actor in a Supporting Role.”

Allison Janney won “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role,” for her performance as LaVona Golden, figure skater Tonya Harding’s abusive mother, in the biographical film, I, Tonya.

It was a memorable night for the cast of the beloved NBC drama series This is Us.

The cast was awarded “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.” Other nominees up for the esteemed award included ensembles from The Crown, Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale and Stranger Things.

Fun Fact: The adult This is Us cast members used their plus-ones to bring along their younger-self cast members, who did not appear in enough episodes to be considered part of the “ensemble.”

Later in the night, This is Us actor Sterling K. Brown won “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series.”

Big Little Lies actors Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard brought home awards for “Outstanding Performance by a Female/Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series.”

Another highlight of the night was Morgan Freeman’s acceptance of the 54th Life Achievement Award.

“Morgan Freeman is one of the most recognizable figure in American cinema,” says the Screen Actors Guild. “He ranks 2nd among worldwide top-grossing actors of all time.”

With the recent airings of the 24th Annual SAG Awards and the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, we can finally say that award season has begun. On Sunday, March 4, the 90th Annual Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
