SAG Awards 2018: biggest winners, surprises and snubs
What, no ‘Stranger Things’?
Post-Weinstein, the 2018 award ceremonies are a different landscape than they were just one short year ago. Take the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet dress code: all black in support of the Time's Up movement. And at the SAG Awards the winners used their podium time to make speeches with industry-changing messages, like Nicole Kidman's comments about how Hollywood is finally employing women over 40 in really good roles - not just the supporting, washed up mother/grandmother bit parts.
Politics aside, the SAG Awards are always a highlight on the awards ceremony circuit as they're the awards voted on by actors. It's peers celebrating peers and gives the general non-movie industry public a glimpse of what people in the industry think are the best films and performances.
And as with anything Hollywood related there's always drama with big snubs and surprises coming thick and fast in most categories. The biggest snubs this year? Stranger Things took home zero for four nominations. Even Millie Bobby Brown, toast of Hollywood teen town couldn't get the Netflix hit across the line.
Then there was The Handmaid's Tale, this hit drama didn't take home any prizes with lead actress Elisabeth Moss beaten out by The Crown's Claire Foy in the best actress in a drama category and This is Us taking home best ensemble over The Handmaid's Tale and shockingly also Game of Thrones.
Alexander Skarsgard couldn't believe he beat out Robert De Niro in the best male actor in a miniseries category saying, according to Variety, "Yeah, that makes sense. A lot of people have been asking who the greatest male actor ever is. Is it Mr Robert De Niro or the tall dude from True Blood."
The biggest winners of the night were Big Little Lies and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
