Home Movies SAG Awards Four Main Prizes to Black Actors, Best Cast to Oscar...

The SAG Awards were quick and painless, and surprising. In a good way. Four black actors won prizes, including Idris Elba (who won two– one for Best Supporting Actor in a Fil, the other for Best Actor in a Limited Series), the mighty Viola Davis for “How to Get Away with Murder,” Uzo Aduba for “Orange is the New Black,” and Queen Latifah for “Bessie.”

Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight” won for Best Cast, aka Best Ensemble. With this award and the Critics Choice, “Spotlight” looks like the Oscar pick for Best Picture. Deservedly so.

Surprises: “Mad Men” failed to win Best TV Drama or Best Actor for Jon Hamm. “Downton Abbey” won the former, and Kevin Spacey the latter.

Alicia Vikander bettered her Oscar chances with a win for Best Supporting Actress, in “The Danish Girl.”

The win for Elba dented Sylvester Stallone’s awards run. But Elba isn’t nominated for an Oscar at all. Stallone should prevail on February 28th.

Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor for “The Revenant.” Brie Larson won Best Actress for “Room.”
