HBO won the most Screen Actors Guild Awards during a ceremony that tipped its hat to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.
HBO won five SAG Awards, including two each for its limited series Big Little Lies and comedy series Veep, including best comedy ensemble.
NBC was the only other network or streaming service to win multiple awards – two for its series This Is Us, which won for outstanding ensemble for a drama series and outstanding performance by an actor in a drama series for Sterling K. Brown.
Brown, as well as Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard of Big Little Lies, all won recent Emmy, Golden Globe and now SAG Awards in their respective acting categories (see full list below).
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale was shut out of the SAG Awards’ winners circle after winning both Emmy and Golden Globes Awards in the best drama category as well as the best actress in a drama series category for Elisabeth Moss.
