The 24th annual SAG Awards were handed out tonight at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, and it appears there are serious front-runners for the acting Oscars.

Fox Searchlight’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won three Actor trophies tonight, including the marquee film ensemble prize. Also, Frances McDormand won for her lead role, and Sam Rockwell won for supporting. See the full winners list below.

Gary Oldman continued his awards-season run, winning Lead Actor for his tour-de-force turn as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

Likewise, the other winner in supporting category for film might be tough to beat at the Oscars: Allison Janney, for playing Tonya Harding’s mom in I, Tonya. It was her seventh SAG Awards, spanning The West Wing, American Beauty, The Help and the Harding biopic.

On the TV side, NBC gave broadcast nets a boost with two wins for This Is Us: Ensemble in a Drama Series and Sterling K. Brown for Male Actor. HBO’s Big Little Lies and Veep also won twice. Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard took trophies for playing unconventional spouses in Big Little Lies, and Veep was voted the winner for comedy ensemble — surprisingly its first — with lead Julia Louis-Dreyfus also winning for the Selina Meyer role. The actress has been undergoing chemo treatments and was unable to attend the ceremony. She tweeted this, though:

It also was Kidman’s first win in her 10th nomination.

HBO was the big winner among networks with four, followed by NBC’s two. Netflix and Showtime took one apiece. And Fox Searchlight tripled up on the competition with the three Actors for Three Billboards. Focus got the one for Darkest Hour and Neon/30WEST took the other for I, Tonya.

There was plenty of #MeToo-related talk tonight but nothing too controversial as women clearly were in the spotlight. All of the presenters were female as was the host. The SAG Awards never has had a host — until tonight. Executive producer Kathy Connell and the SAG Awards Committee are breaking a long-standing custom by assigning those duties to Kristen Bell of the Bad Moms films House of Lies alum.

Conversely, there was very little political talk Dunday night — in fact, the only time Donald Trump’s name was mentioned was during the clip for Anthony Anderson’s Black-ish nomination.

Morgan Freeman accepted tonight’s Lifetime Achievement Award. After accepting the honor from EGOT winner and fellow The Electric Company alum Rita Moreno — who was in a playful mood and noted that she’s known Freeman for 50 years — he said backstage: “I got on stage first time when I was 8 and I  played Little Boy Blue in a pageant. By 12, there was no question (he wanted to be an actor.” He later blew off a reporter’s question about whether Hollywood awards are “too white.” Instead, he focused on the career honor. “You have to give that some thought because the title is Life Achievement. The inference might be to get off the stage, you’re done. My hope is that is not the case and they were saying congratulations, so far.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20184:53 pm

We are live at the Shrine Auditorium for the 24th annual SAG Awards.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20184:57 pm

The show is about to start at the Shrine. SAG-AFTRA says this year’s décor was inspired by the sensuous curves of nature, as almost a counterpoint to the regular angles of most architecture,

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20184:58 pm

Everyone will be vying for the Actor trophy — which, since you aksed, is 16 inches tall and weighs 12 pounds.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20184:58 pm

Some 1,032 individually numbered Actor statuettes have been awarded since the SAGs started in 1995.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:00 pm

The Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall was the largest theater in the U.S. when it was opened in 1926.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:00 pm

Dino-Ray Ramos here backstage at the Shrine Auditorium and will be giving you live updates!

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:01 pm

A promo just showed Kristen Bell chugging from a Champagne bottle. There’s no shortage of booze at the venue: 120 bottles of tequila, 84 of vodka and 36 each of bourbon and gin.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:02 pm

In the Year of the Woman, Allison Janney, Tracee Ellis Ross and Millie Bobby Brown are the first to deliver the “I’m an actor” opens.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:02 pm

Here is something intriguing.  No film NOT nominated for Best Cast at SAG has gone on to win Best Picture at the Oscars since 1996 when Braveheart won. What does that mean for PGA and Critics Choice winner Shape Of Water which is NOT nominated at SAG for Best Cast?

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:02 pm

“I am Kristen Bell, and I am a narcissist.” Nice.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:03 pm

FUN FACT: Kristen Bell is the first host of the SAG Awards.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:04 pm

Bell just referred to The Handmaid’s Tale as a documentary — not gonna argue with that.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:05 pm

A little love for the non-working actors in a studio apartment in Koreatown with five roommates.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:05 pm

“Fear and anger never win the race,” Bell says.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:06 pm

First award for the evening: Male Actor in a Comedy Series presented by Maya Rudolph.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:06 pm

Interesting that Bell says it is a show by actors for actors. Since the merger with AFTRA many of the voters are actually local weathercasters among other non-actors! Most of the rest of the voters are unemployed actors.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:06 pm

Followed by a little Frozen 2 plug.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:06 pm

Anthony Anderson was nominated last year as well — will he win this year?

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:07 pm

Aziz is a no show.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:07 pm

No reaction for Aziz Ansari’s nomination announcement.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:07 pm

William H. Macy won last year — will this year be a repeat win? I am sitting at the edge of my seat!

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:08 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
WILLIAM H. MACY / Frank Gallagher – “SHAMELESS” (Showtime)

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:08 pm

Looks like a repeat win for William H. Macy! Congrats!

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:09 pm

SAG living up to its usual predictablility.  I called Macy as the winner at SAG since they love to repeat winners , especially in this category. Alec Baldwin won seven times!

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:10 pm

This is Macy’s third win for Shameless in eight seasons.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:10 pm

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:11 pm

Female Actor in a Comedy Series is up next — I am going to predict Jane Fonda for this one…or her Grace and Frankie co-star Lily Tomlin.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:12 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS / Selina Meyer – “VEEP” (HBO)

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:13 pm

Happy for Julia Louis Dreyfus. Big hug for her from fellow actors, although agan no surprise.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:14 pm

Seems like my prediction was wrong — but congrats Julia Louis-Dreyfuss for VEEP. She was not there to accept the award. The actress is currently undergoing breast cancer treatment. 

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:16 pm

Dino, predicting people who have never won before at SAG is risky business indeed.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:16 pm

I like to live on the edge!

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:17 pm

Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen are at Larry David’s table, natch

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:18 pm

Seems like my prediction was wrong — but congrats Julia Louis-Dreyfuss for VEEP. She was not there to accept the award. 

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:18 pm

Well at least they stopped the Orange Is New Black lock on this category.  Amazing actually Veep had never won so this is a good sign for something different on this show.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:19 pm

Hard to believe this is the first Ensemble win for Veep, which has won pretty much everything the past few years.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:19 pm

Agreed — the cast of OITNB is great, but kudos to the cast of Veep on their first win.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:21 pm

Twitter just sent out a release saying Netflix’s Stranger Thing dominated the social chatter from the red carpet, with five of its stars being the most tweeted-about celebs.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:22 pm

If you’re scoring along at home:

1. Millie Bobby Brown

2. Sadie Sink

3. Dacre Montgomery

4. Gaten Matarazzo
5.
Caleb McLaughlin

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:22 pm

William H. Macy backstage now fresh off of his win. In regards to what this win means to him: “I’m still a contender. The people that mean the most to me are diggin’ what I do.” And by “the people that mean the most” to him, he means his fellow actors.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:23 pm

Macy also says he still gets starstruck: “I’m at Table 20. Robert DeNiro is sitting at my table!”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:24 pm

Premium networks have shoved streamers and broadcasters to the side thus far, with HBO taking two Actors and Showtime one.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:26 pm

It’s Janney or Metcalf here, but I will go with Janney.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:26 pm

First backstage question about #MeToo. Macy says “It’s a complicated question.” 

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:27 pm

Good call Pete. I was in the Janney camp as well.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:28 pm

Janney is an awards  magnet so no surprise, plus it is a scenery chewing role of enormous proportions. She’s terrific, but so was Metcalf as another  fire breathing mother!

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:29 pm

(From A. Bennett)

“When you’ve been in the business for a while, you feel like, yeah, I gotta go to this thing. But we love it… It means that my fellow actors are digging what I do. I still get starstruck when I come to these things.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:29 pm

This is Janney’s seventh SAG Award. I hope she reinforced that mantel.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:31 pm

I think the rest of the awards season will be Janney and Metcalf duking it out for the Supporting Actress crown.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:31 pm

This will be Rockwell. It better be.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:32 pm

Dafoe is dark horse here

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:32 pm

But yeah, it’s Rockwell’s to lose.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:32 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
SAM ROCKWELL / Dixon – “THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI” (Fox Searchlight)

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:33 pm

Of course, it’s Sam Rockwell! 

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:34 pm

Cast of VEEP is now backstage: “We’re here for any Sam Rockwell questions.”
—Timothy Simons

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:35 pm

It will be a big night  for  Three  Billboards. It is a real actors movie. Rockwell will easily win the Oscar. 

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:35 pm

Rockwell and Janney sure seem like the pair to beat for supporting Oscars.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:36 pm

For all you Veep fansthe show is back in production in August.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:36 pm

Don’t bet against them.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:38 pm

Tony Hale brought his high school drama teacher to tonight’s ceremony. “It’s kind of an F.U. to my sports teachers.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:40 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Timothy Simons tells How Julia Louis-Dreyfus is doing with her cancer treatment: “She has generally been in good spirits when we see her. She has a good sense of humor.”

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:40 pm

Interesting fact.  Three Billboards and I, Tonya were respectively the #1 and #2 surprise audience Peoples Choice winners at Toronto Film Fest in Sept and they have proven those Canadians prescient.  They are big winners at SAG so far.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:42 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series
ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD / Perry Wright – “BIG LITTLE LIES” (HBO)

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:44 pm

Skarsgaard in a supporting role beats De Niro and three others in lead roles. He’s shocked. I’m not . He won Emmy and Globes and SAG follows, doesn’t lead. De Niro actually lost everywhere now for Bernie Madoff. Hmmmm. BTW I predicted Sarsgaard.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:45 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Veep ensemble winner Matt Walsh backstage on when the show will return: “Last I heard is we’re coming back in August, shooting. Next episode airs in October.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:46 pm

SAG-AFTRA president Gabrielle Carteris: “Make no mistake: This is not a moment in time — this is a movement.”

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:48 pm

“Change is coming. We are the agents of change.” — Carteris

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:49 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Veep ensemble winner Tony Hale backstage talking about Louis-Dreyfus when the cameras aren’t rolling: “We’re all part of a team. Nobody is walking on eggshells. She has no arrogance, she has no entitlement. It’s a team.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:51 pm

President Trump has not tweeted about the SAG Awards. Oh right, the government is shut down.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:51 pm

But wait — he did find time to tweet this:

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:51 pm

Nicole. They don’t even need to open the envelope.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:52 pm

I second that Pete.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:52 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series
NICOLE KIDMAN / Celeste Wright – “BIG LITTLE LIES” (HBO)

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:53 pm

Nicole was a 10 time nominee and only first time winner tonight. Wow.  Good for her. 

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:54 pm

Morgan Freeman’s Lifetime Achievement Award tribute is next.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:57 pm

Rita Moreno will be presented Freeman’s award.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20185:57 pm

Loved Nicole’s shout out to all those great actresses over 40! May they always have work.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:58 pm

While we wait out this commercial break, a little factoid: All SAG-AFTRA members in good standing are eligible to vote in all categories, which means 121,544 peers in the actors’ union choose the honorees this year.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20185:59 pm

Sam Rockwell was just backstage and now Allison Janney is here.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20185:59 pm

A total of 239 actors are nominated tonight.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:00 pm

Repeat Roses is working with SAG Awards florist CJ Matsumoto & Sons to repurpose the event flowers. It will deliver more than 100 petite arrangements to victims of sexual violence and domestic abuse at local women’s shelters and emergency treatment centers

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:01 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Sam Rockwell on Nicole Kidman’s acceptance speech, succinctly: “That was nice.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:02 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Asked backstage what he took away from his Three Billboards character, he said: “I think it’s about the loneliness. He’s a very lonely guy. He lives with his mom. He has a long way to go. He needs a good therapist.”

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:04 pm

Rita Moreno is 85. Do you believe it?  She is so great. One of my all time favorite Actors Side interviews on Deadline I ever did.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20186:04 pm

Rita Moreno is presenting the Life Achievement Award to Morgan Freeman. She is welcomed with a deserving standing ovation from the crowd: “That’s a lot of love…but I can take it.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:05 pm

Great reception for Rita Moreno — one of only 12 winners of showbiz’s grand slam, the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony).

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:06 pm

She has known Freeman for 50 years — since they appeared together on Sesame Street rival The Electric Company.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:08 pm

I wonder if Steven Spielberg will find a role for Moreno in his upcoming West Side Story remake.

Steven Spielberg Eyes Indiana Jones & ‘West Side Story’ Atop Next Directing Vehicles

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:09 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Allison Janney backstage: “Having been a figure skater and watching my parents get up in the morning… the abuse part was not easy to understand, ever… and you see jut how terrifying it was, the yway they treated each other. The little secret I have about this role ,is we all have our own little critics. Just how mean we are to ourselves.”

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:11 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Allison Janney backstage on whether the #MeToo conversation has brought her closer to female colleagues: “Gosh, yes. Going to work on Mom every day. … I love that everyone is talking about it. It is a watershed moment. … There are gray areas… but there’s certain abuses that are just undeniable and there are others that are miscommunications. I was saying on the arrivals line that there’s a new phrase that is out there, ‘I’m uncomfortable.’ And going to the women’s march yesterday, seeing Viola Davis speak, hearing Rob Reiner, it was inspiring. … I thought it was great.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:11 pm

Geez, looking at the Freeman clips reminds that he has had a helluva career. Well deserved Lifetime honoree.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:12 pm

He’s coming to the stage wearing an all-black baseball cap. 

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:13 pm

Moreno just fussed over Freeman’s cap covering his eyes. “You have no idea how long I had to put up with THAT,” he said.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:14 pm

We’re past the halfway mark category-wise.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:14 pm

Does anyone want to go out and have a Morgan Freeman film festival now ??? What a reel.  My faves are Shawshank Redemption and Million Dollar Baby but how do you pick?

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:16 pm

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:17 pm

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:20 pm

I really like the Subaru commercial on the show with the dogs driving the car.  Remember dogs are great actors too!

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:23 pm

No one is allowed to win Best Actor Drama Series except Sterling K. Brown. I think it is in his contract that he HAS to win.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20186:25 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
STERLING K. BROWN / Randall Pearson – “THIS IS US” (NBC)

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:25 pm

(From A. Bennett)

Nicole Kidman backstage on whether he’d consider giving her husband a cameo in Big Little Lies: “You’d have to ask him. He is out there. He’s my biggest supporter. But I don’t think having a cameo in one of my projects would interest him. But I sleep with him” (everyone laughs).

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:30 pm

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:31 pm

Awards beget other awards so I will go with Lizzie Moss here.  It would be nice since she had to lose so many times for Mad Men. She deserves it.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20186:31 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
CLAIRE FOY / Queen Elizabeth II – “THE CROWN” (Netflix)

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:33 pm

So Claire Foy wins.  Cool.  She is in Berlin and starts shooting The Girl In The Spider’s Web tomorrow.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:33 pm

This should be quite an In Memoriam list. Another tough year.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:37 pm

It is just stunning to see all those great actors gone in one year. Happy they put some of the lesser known working sag actors in that tribute.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:39 pm

John Bernecker, the stuntman who died in an accident on The Walking Dead set makes the In Memorial, but Joi “SJ” Harris — who was killed doing a motorcycle stunt for Deadpool 2 — did not. It was her first film though, and Bernecker was a veteran.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:41 pm

(From A. Bennett)
Morgan Freeman backstage on the most challenging role of his career: “End of 1980. …  I did a movie with Cicely Tyson then the phone didn’t ring until 1981 or ‘82 and I thought my time was up. I needed to get a job. I don’t know, by the time I got down to the moment to have to get a j-o-b … something good happened: Paul Newman came along.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:41 pm

Stranger Things won this last year so I am going with it again. Why not?

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:46 pm

That 1984 Freeman film with Paul Newman was Harry & Son, by the way.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:46 pm

Okay here comes Lead Actor.  No way it can’t be Gary Oldman.

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:47 pm

Here’s the first of the three big film acting awards, with the men going first.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:47 pm

Franco is there. Good for him to show up. He didn’t when he won for Critics Choice.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20186:48 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
GARY OLDMAN / Winston Churchill – “DARKEST HOUR” (Focus Features)

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:49 pm

Well, Pete, I think we have three official acting Oscar front-runners. Who is going to win among the women next?

Erik Pedersen January 21, 20186:50 pm

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:51 pm

Nice speech from Oldman. Cements his Oscar if there was any doubt.

Pete Hammond January 21, 20186:53 pm

Best Actress is next  and though this is an incredibly competitive category this year with so many greats (Meryl Streep is inexplicably not even NOMINATED) it will be Frances McDormand. Others will be looked at as a surprise.

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20186:57 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Dino-Ray Ramos January 21, 20187:04 pm
