Sandra Oh wins SAG Award for Best Actress in a Drama

The SAGs also honour the stars of television and it was Amazon Prime series The Marvellous Mrs Maisel which swept the comedy prizes, taking the award for best ensemble in a comedy series, as well as outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series for Rachel Brosnahan and male actor in a comedy series for Tony Shalhoub. Oh also earned an Emmy nomination a year ago for her role as Eve on BBC America.

The two leading Oscar nominees - "Roma" and "The Favourite" - were bypassed by the actors guild for a best ensemble field that also included "BlacKkKlansman", "Crazy Rich Asians", "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "A Star Is Born".

On his way to Screen Actors Guild Awards presented at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, he tweeted: "Being nominated alongside @antoniobanderas, Hugh Grant, Anthony freakin Hopkins, and Bill Pullman is a feather in my cap I could have never imagined".

Boseman elaborated saying, "One thing I do know, 'Did it change the industry?' I know you can't have a Black Panther now without a two on it".

"We know what it's like to be told there isn't a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on".

It is also good news for Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek, who took out best actor in a leading role in a motion picture, the win cementing his race for Oscar glory against Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Willem Dafoe and Viggo Mortensen, who are all legitimate contenders. "It may never have been more urgent to see the world through another person's eyes".

Emery believes the injury was a key moment with Arsenal pressing for an equaliser at 2-1 behind. We won against Chelsea and are close.

Alda said his award comes "at a time when I have had a chance to look back on my life". "Actors can help, a little, just by doing what we do".

As the Oscars wrestle with various issues, the SAG Awards seemed to sidestep all of those landmines and controversies.

One major absentee at the 25th edition of the SAG Awards was Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma" - the top Oscar nomination getter was left out of SAG contention.

"My wish for all of us is let's stay playful, lets have fun and let's keep searching", Alda added. Other TV winners included Sandra Oh ("Killing Eve"), Darren Criss for "Assassination of Gianni Versace", Jason Bateman ("Ozark") and Patricia Arquette ("Escape at Dannemora"). During the award ceremony, Owens said, "Somewhere in the middle of the road of my life I found myself in the dark wood of unemployment and debt, but instead of switching careers like a sane person I took a job at a local Trader Joe's to see if I could hang in there with my career and it's actually worked out pretty well".

The cast of This is Us received the award for best ensemble in a drama series, while Glow, the Netflix series about professional women wrestlers, won best stunt ensemble in a comedy or drama series.
