Parasite

Last weekend, the 2020 SAG Awards honored achievements in acting in both film and television from last year. When it comes to the film side of the awards, there weren’t really any surprises, at least not until the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture was handed out. That’s the SAG equivalent of Best Picture, and it was quite a shock with Parasite became the first foreign film ever to win the top prize. Get the full list of 2020 SAG Awards winners below.

This win for Parasite was a surprising one. Though the film has received plenty of praise and nominations through out awards season, with the exception of getting love for Best Foreign Film, it has not earned any larger awards beyond that. So this was quite the stunning victory for the ensemble cast of Bong Joon-ho‘s incredible film. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make the movie anymore of a frontrunner for Best Picture since this is based solely on acting and voted on by actors, but it’s still a big win.

As for the rest of the film awards, they played out pretty much as we expected. Joaquin Phoenix earned the lead actor award, and Renée Zellweger took home lead actress. Even the supporting categories pretty much went as planned with Laura Dern and Brad Pitt. These will likely end up being our Oscar winners as well.

Meanwhile, the television side had some surprises with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel beating out Fleabag for ensemble cast in a comedy series and The Crown winning ensemble cast in a drama series. Plus, Sam Rockwell and Jennifer Aniston came away with a couple surprising victories for supporting actor in a miniseries or TV movie and best actress in a drama.
