SAG Awards 2018: Colourful Gowns Steal The Spotlight On The Red Carpet

Frances McDormand

The big victor in the motion picture categories was, of course, "Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri" which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast with Frances McDormand landing the Lead Actress prize and Sam Rockwell getting Outstanding Supporting Actor.

Nicole Kidman has used her win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards to point out actresses were no longer "washed up" after the age of 40.

Gary Oldman continued his winning streak at the SAG awards by bagging yet another Best Actor award for his performance as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's biopic Darkest Hour. "These moments in one's life usually call for an entire litany of thank you's", said Freeman.

Two big moments stood out from last night - Morgan Freeman being the recipient of this year's lifetime achievement award and Veep's Julia Dreyfus making history by picking up two wins, which make her the most decorated actor in the history of the SAG Awards, with nine wins overall.

But it's been 22 years since a film that wasn't at least nominated for best ensemble at the SAG Awards won best picture at the Oscars.

The film's star, Frances McDormand, was named best female actor, and co-star Sam Rockwell took the award for best male supporting actor - both having already won Golden Globes for their performances.

"There are some movements in town that say women should be 50-50 by 2020", Connell said recently about the entertainment industry's gender parity goals.

Only two weeks ago there was a black-dress protest at the Golden Globe Awards, and several stars including Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Michelle Williams bringing activists to the show.

Claire Foy was honoured as best female actor in a drama series for her role as a young Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix series The Crown, but Big Little Lies and This Is Us dominated the other small screen awards.

The Oscar victor told Arquette: "You are one of the silence breakers and we all owe you a debt of gratitude".

"It is not always about maliciousness". "We are potent and powerful and viable. This is not the case now", Kidman said.

"The Disaster Artist" star/director skipped the red carpet at the prestigious event, but was spotted in the audience as the cast of "Veep" approached the stage to accept the award for Ensemble In A Comedy Series.

Actors are able to "find the truth, and I think it's a glorious way to make a living - especially in this day and age when so many people either can't recognize the truth or don't think it's important", he said.

There was a lot to love about Sunday's SAG Awards, but the crabby show of friendship between besties Morgan Freeman and Rita Moreno stole the evening.

The SAGs have never had a host before but this year opted to have one, with Kristen Bell taking the helm.
