'Black Panther' Triumphs With Top Prize At SAG Awards

Adjust Comment Print

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel won every category it was nominated in, with Tony Shalhoud and Rachel Brosnahan receiving the awards for outstanding male and female actor in a comedy series respectively, and the entire cast receiving the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series. She wasn't among Tuesday's Oscar nominees for either film.

The two leading Oscar nominees - "Roma" and "The Favourite" - were bypassed by the actors guild for a field that also includes "Crazy Rich Asians, " "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "A Star Is Born, " which led all films with four nominations. The actor offered a passionate response to the most-asked questions castmembers received while promoting the film. We weren't perhaps predicting that the actors' branch would reward Black Panther to such a degree (it also scored a stunt award), but that cast certainly deserved it. "Has it actually changed the way this industry works and how it sees us?'"

"We all know what it's like to be told that there is not a place for you to be featured, yet you are young, gifted, and black".

For best actor, Rami Malek's star-making turn as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody" was rewarded - over Christian Bale's work in another biopic, as former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney in "Vice".

"It may never have been more urgent to see the world through another person's eyes when a culture is divided so sharply", Alda said. "Actors can help, a little, just by doing what we do".

Tom Hanks presented the award to Alda, calling him Alphonso Joseph D'Abruzzo, the name he was given when he was born the son of an actor in the Bronx in 1936.

"When we get a chance to act it's our job, at least in part, to get inside a character's head and to search for a way to see life from that person's point of view, another person's view of the world, and to let an audience see that", the 83-year-old actor said.

The Screen Actors Guild accounts for a major percentage of the 8,000-odd Oscar voters, so the SAG winners will earn a lot of awards season momentum.

"Everybody knows winning a SAG award is the greatest award an actor can receive this weekend", joked host Megan Mullally, star of comedy "Will & Grace".

As the Oscars wrestle with various issues, the SAG Awards seemed to sidestep all of those landmines and controversies.

Only one film in the last 23 years has won the prestigious best picture Oscar without being nominated for SAG's ensemble prize. Other TV winners included Sandra Oh ("Killing Eve"), Darren Criss for "Assassination of Gianni Versace", Jason Bateman ("Ozark") and Patricia Arquette ("Escape at Dannemora").
