This Is Us, Three Billboards and Big Little Lies win big at Screen Actors Guild Awards 2018

Mid-January is when we usually start noticing trends in award season, and the Oscar nominations (and winners) start shaping up. Last night the Screen Actors Guild Awards took place in Hollywood, and some of our favourites won big.

Notably Sterling K. Brown became the first African American man to win the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series, while Allison Janney who won her seventh SAG Award for I, Tonya, and Nicole Kidman won her first award, after 10 nominations. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Veep, but was unable to attend the ceremony due to her ongoing chemotheraphy treatments.

Kristen Bell served the role as the first ever host of the SAG Awards, and opened the ceremony with a powerful message, “We are living in a watershed moment in time, and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.”

  • Black Lives Matter. And in order to stop systemic racism we need to listen, learn and work together to make a better future. As we often promote films and TV, we thought we’d take some time to promote 9 shows/films that are currently available on streaming services in South Africa - Netflix, Showmax, Amazon Prime, DStv Now, and Apple TV+, that tell more about the black experience in South Africa and the US. We need to diversify the entertainment that we consume as well, to let other voices in, to edit our singular worldviews and support the work of black creatives. I will share more recommendations on Stories. .
