On January 29, in New York, a ceremony was held to award winners of the Screen Actors Guild Award, which includes more than 160 thousand film and television actors. Prestigious awards received not only the actors who starred in the films, but also the stars of the series. The jury noted two tapes at once: “The Crown” about the life of Elizabeth II and “Very Strange Things” about the mysterious disappearance of an 8-year-old American schoolboy.
The series "Crown", telling about the life of Elizabeth II, received two awards at once - for the best female and male roles in a drama series.
Little Sci-Fi Actors "Very strange things", whose plot revolves around the mysterious disappearance of a 12-year-old American schoolboy, received an award for the best acting team in a drama series. According to the jury, aspiring child actors played better than the teams in the series Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, and Wild West.
TV Stars"Orange is the hit of the season" received a similar award, however, for the best team in the comedy series. The jury's choice in this nomination has remained unchanged for several years: in 2015, 2016 and 2017, the award went to this particular series. However, this year they had serious competitors: the series "The Big Bang Theory", "Blackish", "American Family", and "Vice President" claimed the prize in this category.
The best actress in the comedy series was recognized as Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Vice President"), and the best actor in the same category is William Macy, who starred in the series. Shameless.
"Game of Thrones" this time received an award for the best stunt performance.
- According to the results of the jury of the Screen Actors Guild, you can pre-predict the results of another, no less popular award - the Oscar. Members of the Guild have a large number of votes in the American Film Academy of the Arts, which has been giving gold Oscars since 1929.
- The Screen Actors Guild was established in 1933. At first, it served as a kind of union that protects the rights of film and television workers. The Screen Actors Guild has retained this controlling function to this day.
