‘Three Billboards’ Wins Big At The 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards

The best way to sum up the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards is “Well, at least TV mixed things up a bit.” Because while the choices for each of the awards were highly deserving, there were few surprises to be found as Three Billboards took home awards for Best Ensemble, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor (for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, respectively).

Outside of the Three Billboards love-fest, Gary Oldman continued his winning streak for Darkest Hour, ending any conversation about hidden backlash or desires for Timothée Chalamet. And despite some fierce competition from Laurie Metcalf, Allison Janney continues her winning streak for Best Supporting Actress. With the consensus now in, you can now bet that Oldman, McDormand, Rockwell, and Janney will be winning the Oscars in March. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman won Best Stunt Ensemble.

On television, there weren’t too many shocks. William H. Macy and Julia Louis-Dreyfus each won again for the comedy categories, Sterling K. Brown continues to win by being the best actor on the most popular show on TV, and Nicole Kidman won for Best Actress in a Miniseries. Mostly, everything played out as expected. However, there were a few major surprises. Alexander Skarsgård, somewhat disappointingly, won for Best Actor in a Miniseries (he’s arguably the worst part of that show, and his speech was kind of douchey). Veep upset GLOW to win the prize for Best Comedy (deserved, but probably should have happened like two years ago). And in the biggest surprise of the night, The Handmaid’s Tale proved unpopular with the SAGs. It lost Best Ensemble to the aforementioned most popular show on TV (which was for the best, because the excitement was palpable, and Milo Ventimiglia gave the second best speech of the night, because of course he did), and in a stunning upset, Claire Foy beat Elisabeth Moss, which proved to be extra hilarious because Foy didn’t even show up – she was either filming The Girl In The Spider’s Web or expected to lose to Moss, or both. I’m not sure who deserved the award more, as both performances were uniquely skilled, but it’s nice to see a little variety in the awards. Best TV Stunt Ensemble unsurprisingly went to Game of Thrones.

Obviously, these awards have a big impact on the Oscar race. Three Billboards now seems like a clear frontrunner for Best Picture with The Shape of Water, especially with Get Out and Lady Bird not winning anything here, but you never know. Moonlight also struggled in these early stages. I will have an update on the Oscar predictions later today sometime, in preparation for tomorrow.
