The Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) is the largest union of workers in the film industry in the United States and is influential in the Oscar race because its members represent between 40% and 45 % of all members of the Hollywood Academy of Motion Picture Sciences.
This means that those films supported by SAG have a good chance of being nominated for the golden statuette (those chosen for the Oscar will be announced tomorrow, January 23) and many times determine who will give the speech of appreciation at the ceremony in early March.
Although the actresses were not in black as in the past Golden Globes, the theme of the presenters and the winners was the same: denounce sexual harassment against women, expose the wage inequality between men and women and remember the need to give women more presence in the plots of movies and television series.
Figures from the entertainment world have been accused of inappropriate or abusive sexual behavior, such as actors Kevin Spacey, Jeffrey Tambor, Dustin Hoffman, Louis CK, as well as producer Bob Weinstein and director Brett Ratner.
Many of the winners of yesterday Sunday, in an event that took place in Los Angeles, were already taken for granted, since they had been winning recent competitions. That was the case for best actor in a feature film for Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour and best actress in a feature film for Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, or Julia Louis-Dreyfus who earned her third SAG as an actress in a comedy series for Veep.
While Nicole Kidman was another sure to win as an actress in a mini series for Big Little Lies, a category that he had already achieved for this same production at the Emmy and the Golden Globes.
One surprise was that the program This Is Us beat the one that was favorite in the best drama program The Handmaid’s Tale (from the service of streaming Hulu), which had won the Emmys and the Golden Globes.
“To those who see us every Tuesday night and embrace this show that reflects positive thinking and hope and inclusion, we love you,” said actor Milo Ventimiglia as he accepted the award for best cast in a drama series on behalf of his colleagues.
“What a blessing to do what you love for a living. What an honor to be recognized by your peers for a job well done,” said Sterling K. Brown, who won Best Actor in a Drama Series precisely because of This Is Us.
Meanwhile, Morgan Freeman received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild from his colleague and friend Rita Moreno.
