Screen Actors Guild Awards 2018: winners

Nicole Kidman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Claire Foy and This is Us were amongst winners at the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards in Hollywood.

Kidman, who noted she has been working since the age of 14, said, “To receive this at this stage of my life is extraordinary, and this time in the industry when these things are going on for this role.

She paid tribute to stars including Meryl Streep, Judy Davis, Shirley Maclaine, Jane Fonda, Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange, Judi Dench adding, “how wonderful it is that our careers today can go beyond 40 years old. 20 years ago we were pretty much washed up. That’s not the case now. We are potent, powerful and viable.

“I am so proud to be a part of a community that is instigating this change. I implore writers, directors, studios and financiers to put passion and money behind our stories.”

  1. Still baffles me how Nicole Kidman has won so many awards for Big Little Lies. Witherspoon’s performance was superior.

    Pleased to see This Is Us win. Sterling B. Brown is brilliant but Susan Kelechi Watson needs to start getting the recognition she deserves. She is fabulous as Beth.

  2. I don’t know what I’m missing with This Is Us, I don’t really understand why it’s considered such a prestige show. I enjoy it and the gimmick of it being two different timelines was interesting and unexpected but I don’t see how the show is that elevated in quality compared to any other family drama series like Brothers and Sisters or even The Fosters. I certainly don’t think it deserved to win the ensemble cast award above any of the other 4 shows in that category, particularly The Handmaid’s Tale which was flawless.

    • SAG focusses on performances as opposed to other awards such as Globes which takes all into consideration. Things are more equal in This Is Us working together than others such as Handmaid’s Tale.

  3. I absolutely adore Shameless but it still baffles me (after 8 seasons no less), that Macy continues to get nominated and as I understand, win for the third time at the SAG awards for his role as Frank… I think he’s one of the weaker characters in the show… and still Emmy Rossum continues to be ignored for Fiona. ??‍♂️
