Sterling K. Brown Wins Historic SAG Award - Morgan Freeman Stops Chatterbox

Stars Talk'Time's Up on the Red Carpet at SAG Awards

Sterling K Brown continued to make awards history, winning Best Actor for his performance as Randall Pearson in NBC's acclaimed series This is Us.

The 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards took place in Hollywood last night, honouring the most outstanding performances in television and film.

Geoffrey Rush, who is now suing for defamation following claims he acted inappropriately during a Sydney theatre production, was nominated for playing Einstein in the TV miniseries Genius, but missed out to Kidman's co-star Alexander Skarsgard.

However, unfortunately for Franco, or perhaps fortunately because he would've had to make a speech at a potentially awkward time, Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour took it home instead.

NBC's This Is Us walked out a big victor at the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

"It works from the back, but from the front, it's gender specific".

"Change is coming, and we are the agents of that change", said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris.

Women in the industry have launched the Times Up movement, before the award season started with Golden Globes, to address gender disparity and abuse, and nearly all of Hollywood - both women and men - from the showbiz and beyond are supporting it.

In her speech, Kidman gave praise to her fellow nominees - Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange, Reese Witherspoon, and Laura Dern - as well as other women whose performances have inspired her over the years. Ryan Michelle Bathe, you're the best scene partner a brother has ever had.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus also won for her role on "Veep", but the actress was not present to receive the award.

He did - before calling out another entity, the SAG Awards statue itself - at the third major film and TV awards event to be held in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal and #MeToo movement. People call us weird and unusual.

Hollywood descended on the red carpet on Sunday for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, with Black comedy crime story Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri expected to dominate a ceremony that will honour Hollywood's women. "We are potent and powerful and viable". Both add to their already growing win tally, making their Oscar wins as a close to a sure thing as you will get with still several weeks of campaigning left to go.

And since we're congratulation folks, another is due for one and only Morgan Freeman.

Robbie missed out on SAG's best actress trophy in what could be a blow to her chances at the March 4 Oscars.
