The 2018 PGA Awards have come and gone as have the 2018 Golden Globes. Everything is leading up to the 2018 Oscars and the nominations for those awards will be announced very soon. Anticipation is high for the Oscars. Still, we should not forget the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards) and the winners of the 2018 SAG Awards have now been announced. Like the PGA Awards, the results from the SAG Awards could be useful in trying to predict which films will do well at the 2018 Oscars. So, without further ado, let us take a look at the results.
2018 SAG Awards – Film
In the world of film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was the clear winner at the 2018 SAG Awards. The film won the main award of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. This is the equivalent of winning Best Picture at the Oscars. Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand won the award for Best Supporting Actor and Best Actress respectively at the 2018 SAG Awards for their work in Three Billboards. I would still argue that The Shape of Water is better placed than Three Billboards to win Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars.
Still, I would not be surprised if McDormand and Rockwell win again at the Oscars in their respective acting categories. This is based on how the awards have been handed out in the recent weeks and months. The same can be said for Gary Oldman. He has been wining a lot of Best Actor awards for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. He has now won a Best Actor award again at the 2018 SAG Awards. Allison Janney won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in I, Tonya while Morgan Freeman won the Life Achievement Award at the 2018 SAG Awards.
2018 SAG Awards – Television
From a television perspective, Veep, Big Little Lies and This Is Us were the shows which did very well at the 2018 SAG Awards. Veep won two awards in the comedy categories. The award for Best Actress – Comedy went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus for her role in Veep. The whole ensemble cast of Veep were recognised by winning Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard won Best Actress – Limited Series and Best Supporting Actor – Limited Series respectively for their work in Big Little Lies. Sterling K. Brown won Best Actor – Drama for his performances in This Is Us. That show also won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
