ANNUAL SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS


Hidden Figures was the surprise best film ensemble winner at last week’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, a show overshadowed by politics as stars slammed U.S. President Donald Trump for restricting entry for travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.
Hidden Figures, the true story of three black female mathematicians during the 1960s space race, ousted awards front-runners Manchester By the Sea and Moonlight to claim the night's top prize.
"This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together," star Taraji P. Henson said.
With awards darling La La Land out of the running for the top SAG prize for best ensemble, the win put Hidden Figures firmly into the race for the best picture Oscar, the top accolade in the film industry.
Voted for by about 120,000 U.S. actors, the two-hour televised SAG awards show often anoints top Academy Award winners since actors comprise the largest body within Oscar voters.
A surprised Denzel Washington won best actor for Fences, beating out front-runners Casey Affleck for Manchester By the Sea and Ryan Gosling for La La Land.
The SAG awards honored many actors of color in a year when diversity in Hollywood has been in the spotlight. Politics took center stage at the SAG awards as many stars delivered fiery speeches to directly or indirectly criticise Trump's ban on Muslim travelers. |
