This year’s award season has been one crazy rollercoaster ride, and things got even more intense at the SAG Awards. The Trial of the Chicago 7, The Crown, and Schitt’s Creek come out as the biggest winners on the night full of historic victories and unexpected surprises.
The cast of Aaron Sorkin’s Chicago 7 picked up the award for the best ensemble in a motion picture, beating the likes of Minari and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. It was a historic night for the cast member Michael Keaton, who became the first actor in SAG history to pick up the award in this category on three separate occasions.
Actors of color made history in other acting categories, where the awards went to the Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom leads Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis, Minari’s Youn Yuh-jung, and Daniel Kaluuya for Judas and the Black Messiah.
The Crown and Schitt’s Creek were the biggest winners in the TV field, and they both picked up awards for the best television ensemble in their respective categories. Gillian Anderson and Catherine O’Hara were rewarded for their performances in these two series, joining the list of acting winners that included Jason Bateman (Ozark) and Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso).
This year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards were presented at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on April 4th.
