Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – The Screen Actor Guilds Award has finally given out the awards that are a slight precursor to the Academy race, just before the British Academy of Film and Television Awards commences. There have been consistent winners and surprises here and there.
Host Megan Mullally of “Will & Grace”, who aired her problem a month before the awards that she couldn’t find designers that would dress her, picked out an Alexander McQueen dress she bought online and her own accessories.
“I always pick out clothes online and buy my own stuff because first of all I like it,” Mullally spoke to Access Hollywood. “I can just wear what I want to wear but also the major designers are not interested in sending me any dresses.”
Surprise came when double nominee for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for ‘A Quiet Place’, Emily Blunt. She won the latter beating out award season favorites Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone.
Other double nominees who didn’t bag an award were Emma Stone and Amy Adams, both nominated for film and television categories.
Mahershala Ali continues his streak winning Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for ‘Green Book’ while Glenn Close took home Outstanding Actress for “The Wife” beating out this season’s favorite performances on the same category, Lady Gaga for “A Star Is Born” and Olivia Colman for ‘The Favourite’. Rami Malek took home the prize for Outstanding Actor for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ over another two favorites Bradley Cooper for ‘A Star Is Born’ and Christian Bale in ‘Vice’.
Outstanding Cast went to “Black Panther” who took the stage for an emotional speech from Chadwick Boseman that went on too long. The producers tried to cut him off but it didn’t work. Boseman spoke about the immense talent of the cast, racism and change in Hollywood towards representation.
