SAG Awards, the usual winners plus one surprise


The productions and performers who have been winning most of the awards this season pretty much stayed true to form at the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild ( SAG ) Awards, which honors excellence in film and television.

There was one surprise, however, as Black Panther's cast won for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, defeating the casts of A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Crazy Rich Asians.

As for other awards, Glenn Close won the best film actress award for her role in The Wife, edging Lady Gaga ( A Star Is Born ), Melissa McCarthy ( in a lesbian role in Can You Ever Forgive Me? ), Olivia Colman ( a lesbian role in The Favourite ) and Emily Blunt ( Mary Poppins Returns ).

Rami Malek won for best film actor for portraying the late queer singer Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. Mahershala Ali won for best supporting actor for his role as real-life musician Dr. Don Shirley in Green Book.

On the TV side, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel swept the comedic categories ( ensemble, best actor and actress )—the first show to do so since the NBC show 30 Rock did so in 2008. Sandra Oh won the Female Actor in a Drama Series award for Killing Eve, while Darren Criss won for Male Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series for portraying serial killer Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Megan Mullally ( TV's Will & Grace ) hosted the ceremony, which took place Jan. 27. See SAGAwards.org for the full list of winners and nominees.
