Louisan Sterling K. Brown wins SAG Award

Tuesday, 23 Jan, 2018

While actors are accustomed to being on camera, not every starry moment at the Screen Actors Guild Awards makes the screen.

She ended her speech on a note that touched on the wave of women and men speaking out about sexual assault and abuse. Not usually as widely publicised as the mainstream Golden Globes or the holy grail Academy Awards, the SAGs still turns out to be a style spectacle of the awards season with celebrities using it to go outside their customary plunging, floor length gown comfort zone.

Host Kristen Bell addressed recent political turmoil and the heightened attention to the treatment of women as she opened Sunday's SAG Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. So proud to be a union member. Make no mistake, this is not a moment in time. While Arquette held back tears, they named some of the "silence breakers" in the movement including Asia Argento, Annabella Sciorra, Ashley Judd, Daryl Hannah, Mira Sorvino, Anthony Rapp and Olivia Munn. "We've proven and these actresses and so many more are proving that we are potent and powerful and viable".

In December 2017, Carteris told Varietythat the Me Too movement is here to stay.

"I honestly never thought that I would grow up to be the first lady".

The best: On average, three or four of the Directors Guild nominees match the final Oscar slate, so expect most of the category to come out of a bunch including Globe and Critics' Choice victor Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Jordan Peele (Get Out), Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) and Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards). "I just beg that the industry stays behind us because our stories are finally being told".

"What a blessing it is to do what you love for a living".

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri took the prize for outstanding cast in a motion picture, while its star Frances McDormand was given the gong for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role.

The 15-year-old actor tweeted ahead of Sunday's SAG Awards that he'd be missing the show, where his show was up for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series and Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series.

Brown had some advice for up-and-coming actors.

When Mandy Moore spotted Brown with his two trophies, she said, "You could do bicep curls".

The Outstanding Ensemble in Comedy Series also went to "Veep", an insider joke on the absurdity of unqualified, high maintenance politicians.

The big victor, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", moved a step closer to the Oscar podium, although after the Producers Guild of America honored "The Shape of Water" on Saturday, anything approximating consensus in this year's best-picture race remains elusive. "Big Little Lies" and "Veep" also won two honours each.

Lifetime achievement award recipient Morgan Freeman kept his remarks brief after a moving highlight reel of his expansive career and an introduction by Rita Moreno.

While on stage, Freeman stated that having the opportunity to receive the award was beyond an honor and a place in history.
