WASHINGTON: The winners of the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have been announced!
The award ceremony, which honours excellence across film and TV, aired on Sunday on TNT and TBS.
The starry cast of Aaron Sorkin's 1960s courtroom drama 'The Trial of the Chicago 7' bagged the top prize at the virtual ceremony, where actors of colour, for the first time, swept the individual film awards, reported Variety.
This year all four major acting awards went to a group entirely of actors of colour: Chadwick Boseman, best male actor for 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom', Viola Davis, best female actor for 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom', Yuh-Jung Youn, best female supporting actor for 'Minari' and Daniel Kaluuya, best male supporting actor for 'Judas and the Black Messiah'.
In television categories, the ensembles of 'Schitt's Creek' (for comedy series) and 'The Crown' (for drama series) added to their string of awards this season. Other winners included Anya Taylor-Joy for The Queen's Gambit', Gillian Anderson for 'The Crown', Jason Sudeikis for 'Ted Lasso', Jason Bateman for 'Ozark' and Mark Ruffalo for 'I Know This Much Is True'.

In July 2020, it was announced that the ceremony would be postponed from January 24 to March 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic, changing the eligibility timeframe for nominees. The event was delayed once again when the Grammy Awards rescheduled their annual show for the same day in March, reported Variety.
Nominations were announced via Instagram Live in February. 'The Crown' and 'Schitt's Creek' tied for the most nods with five each. Chadwick Boseman also scored two posthumous nominations for his work in 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' and 'Da 5 Bloods'.
Many of the SAG winners and nominees are also up for honours at the British BAFTA Awards next week and the Independent Spirit Awards on April 22.
