SAG Awards: 'Birdman' Flies Even Higher & 'Orange Is The New Black' Shines – List Of Winners

Fox Searchlight’s Birdman made it two nights in a row for a top honor, taking home the SAG Awards’ cast ensemble award that stands as the guild’s closest award to the Oscar Best Picture. The win tonight over awards-season rivals Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game and The Theory Of Everything puts the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu-directed quirky comedy in the driver’s seat for the Best Picture Academy Award, after winning the PGA Awards’ top honor on Saturday.

UzoOn the TV side, Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black scored a couple of Actor trophies, taking the Comedy Ensemble and Outstanding Actress awards for Uzo Aduba, who plays Crazy Eyes in the prison-set series. Netflix had a good night, as House Of Cards‘ Kevin Spacey won the top drama series actor award.

Eddie Redmayne Julianne MooreEddie Redmayne (Theory Of Everything) and Julianne Moore (Still Alice) kept their momentum going with the top film actor awards, as did supporting winners Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). All four kept their Oscar frontrunner status.

  1. Patricia Arquette and J.K. Simmons should probably start practicing their Oscar speeches. Hopefully, the wins for OITNB will translate to Emmys later this year.

  2. giving the award to eddie redmayne is giving the award to tics and dance moves…..the theory of everything is the movie of nothing….it is an awful movie…..it does the hackneyed old ‘love can conquer all….i’ll love you no matter what’ tripe….and then they break up….the movie didn’t even tell the truth….Michael Keaton actually gave a layered, nuanced, comic, dramatic and heartbreaking performance….Eddie Redmayne flounced his English accent….stupid choice ….yet again….play a cripple win an award….

  3. Happy for Keaton, Birdman, Viola Davis, Julianne and the long-overlooked Mark Ruffalo. Birdman was a trip. Hope it takes Oscars.
