'The Trial Of The Chicago 7' Takes Top Prize At The 2021 SAG Awards, Chadwick Boseman And Viola Davis Make History

The Trial of the Chicago 7 took the top prize at the 2021 SAG Awards, picking a little momentum as we head toward the April 25 Oscars ceremony. The cast of Aaron Sorkin's courtroom drama picked up Best Picture at the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which rewarded more people of color in its film acting categories than it ever has in history.

People of color swept all four individual acting categories at the 2021 SAG Awards Sunday night, though Trial of the Chicago 7 would end up taking the top prize. Chadwick Boseman won posthumously for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and alongside Viola Davis, made history — they are the first lead black film actors to win in the same year. Also making history: Michael Keaton, who set a SAG record as the first person to win three awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, with the Trial of the Chicago 7 win.

Meanwhile, on the TV side, The Crown unsurprisingly dominated, taking the top prize for Drama Ensemble, while Gillian Anderson won an individual award for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in the Netflix prestige drama. Netflix in general had a strong showing, with wins for its original titles The Crown, Ozark, and The Queen's Gambit.
