2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards: Winners

As award season rages on, another big award ceremony took place last night: the Screen Actors Guild Awards – otherwise known as the SAG Awards.

The SAG Awards celebrate the best in film and television. But, unlike the Golden Globes, their list of awards is much smaller and more elite.

The SAG Awards are considered to be an indicator of success at the Oscars – meaning that whomever wins a SAG Award, will most likely win an Oscar for the same role, too.

And so far, it looks like the SAG Awards may have very well predicted a Best Actress winner in the form of Emma Stone.

Emma Stone has already won the Golden Globe for Best Actress for her performance in the musical ‘La La Land’, and now that she can add a SAG Award to that list, winning the Oscar for Best Actress will complete the hat-trick for the red-haired beauty.

However, Stone’s co-star, Ryan Gosling, who won the Golden Globe award for Best Actor, did not win the SAG Award for Best Actor. The Best Actor SAG award instead went to Denzel Washington, for his performance in ‘Fences’.

So, we’ll have to wait and see which Hollywood hunk takes home the Oscar!

The cast of ‘Fences’, which include Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monáe, won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

In the television department, the cast of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’, took home the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. Considering that most of the lead cast is made up of kids, this was a fantastic achievement for the show.
