Gary Oldman and Frances McDormand were the big winners at the SAG awards, confirming odds they will triumph at the Oscars.
Oldman won the Screen Actors Guild award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role, in a ceremony celebrating “silence breakers” who spoke out about sexual harassment.
The big winner of the ceremony was Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which picked up best ensemble and saw Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell win best actress and best supporting actor respectively.
“Frances, you’re a powerhouse,” Rockwell said accepting the award.
“I stand shoulder to shoulder with you and all the incredible women in this room who are trying to make things better. It’s long overdue.”
On the TV side, HBO’s Big Little Lies picked up best actor in a miniseries wins for both Alexander Skarsgard and Nicole Kidman.
“I’m so grateful today that our careers can go beyond 40 years old,” Kidman said in her acceptance speech.
“We are potent and powerful and viable. I just beg that the industry stays behind us because our stories are finally being told.”
