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.

After the Golden Globes chose chaos yesterday, all eyes were on the SAG Awards, the next stop in the road to the Oscars, to right this unprecedented awards season. And in some cases they did — making sure nonwhite actors were represented in far more categories than the Globes, and paying tribute to critical darlings like Minari and Da 5 Bloods, the latter of which was completely snubbed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. But some of the choices made by the SAG nominating committee may have only thrown an already-messy awards season into further chaos.

A few months ago, the 72nd Primetime Emmys ceremony went virtual with television’s biggest stars and creators checking into the live broadcast virtually from their homes and various locations. But when the 93rd Academy Awards come around in April next year, the Academy of Motion Arts and Sciences won’t be making the ceremony virtual. A representative from the Academy and hosting network ABC stated: “The Oscars in-person telecast will happen.” Read More »

The Oscars are about a month away, but this past weekend the Screen Actors Guild handed out the awards to their fellow members for some fine work in motion pictures. And the major award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture being given to Spotlight shakes up the frontrunner for the Oscar race a little bit after The Big Short won the PGA Award recently. Both are key awards in the road to winning Best Picture, so it’s anybody’s guess as to how Oscar night will go.
Otherwise, on the motion picture side of things, the leading actor awards were a repeat of the Golden Globes with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson walking away with awards for The Revenant and Room respectively. But the big winner was diversity with plenty of black actors walking away with some big awards.
For the whole list of 2016 SAG Awards winners in film and television, hit the jump. Read More »

If the PGA and SAG Awards are any indication, Birdman will be the one to beat in this year’s competitive Best Picture category at the Oscars. The dark comedy took top prize at both ceremonies.
However, it was far from a clean sweep. Although Birdman won Best Ensemble at SAG (the guild’s closest equivalent to Best Picture), none of the three individual actors nominated for the film won their respective categories. Meanwhile, two of the winners from the PGA’s film categories — the animated feature The Lego Movie and the documentary Life Itself — weren’t even nominated in the equivalent category at the Oscars.
On the TV side, Breaking Bad picked up one last trophy at the PGA awards, Orange Is the New Black got showered with love from both guilds, and True Detective once again lost out. Get the full list of 2015 PGA and SAG winners after the jump.

With awards season in full swing, both the Screen Actors Guild and the Producers Guild of America handed out prizes for their favorites of 2012 this past weekend. The big winner at both ceremonies turned out to be Ben Affleck‘s Argo, which had also previously picked up Golden Globes for Best Director and Best Motion Picture – Drama earlier this month. That positions Argo at the front of this year’s Best Picture Oscar race, though if it wins, it’ll be the rare film to do so without getting a Best Director nomination. Only three films in Oscar history have managed to win Best Picture without an accompanying Best Director nomination, the last to do so being Driving Miss Daisy in 1989.
Other notable victories in the film categories included Searching for Sugar Man and Wreck-It Ralph at the PGA Awards, and Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis and Tommy Lee Jones), Silver Linings Playbook (Jennifer Lawrence), and Les Miserables (Anne Hathaway) at the SAG Awards. Small screen winners included Homeland and Game Change. Hit the jump to read the full list of awards. Read More »
