'Three Billboards' wins top prize, women stand center stage at SAG Awards

Everything that happened at the 2018 SAG Awards Timothée Chalamet Teases His Mom (and SAG Awards Date) About Their Hard to Pronounce Last Name

Last night saw the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards, hosted this year by A list actress Kristen Bell.

As the actor started his acceptance speech at Sunday's ceremony, he took a moment to call out another member of the audience, the mystery celebrity that Freeman called out during his speech.

Alison Brie, wife of Dave Franco, spoke on the red carpet about James Franco, who faces accusations of sexual misconduct leveled by five women.

He stars as Randall Pearson on "This Is U", the role that earned him his second Emmy award in 2017, for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series".

"I'm looking at you Tony Hale!" she said gesturing toward the "Veep" actor.

"I think that above all what we've always said is it remains vital that anyone who remains victimized should have the right to speak out and come forward", Brie said, adding that in the case of Franco, "Not everything that has come forward is fully accurate".

Love in the air: Pope marries couple on papal plane in Chile
They responded, "Okay!"According to the couple, Pope Francis blessed their rings and then said "we need a witness". All of a sudden he asked us if we were married in the church, too.


Actors Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard took trophies for playing unconventional spouses in "Big Little Lies", and "Veep" was voted the victor for Comedy Ensemble, with lead Julia Louis-Dreyfus also winning for the Selina Meyer role. "I mean, but you can say anyone who's Asian that's nominated". "This room is a source of endless inspiration for me".

HBO's "Veep", starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as hapless former president Selina Meyer, won best ensemble in a comedy series and best actress for Louis-Dreyfus, who is battling cancer and could not attend.

Hollywood's crankiest actress then proved how she got the title by ending her speech with this half-self-aware, half-callously-dismissive statement: "I come out of the woods every few years and you invite me to the party, but there is a lot of young ones coming up, and they need doorstops, too". You know, the skating queen, the grieving mother, the Lady Bird, even the sea monster - everyone's story deserves to be told, especially now.

Meanwhile, Morgan Freeman made sure to point out the gender inequality of his own Lifetime Achievement Award win.

McDormand won for outstanding female actor, and the "Three Billboards" cast took home the top prize for ensemble performance in a theatrical motion picture.

Oustanding Actor and Actress in a Miniseries went to Alexander Skarsgard and Nicole Kidman for "Big Little Lies", while "This Is Us" became the recipient of Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series with Sterling K. Brown also winning the Male Actor in a Drama Series gong. This is Janney's seventh SAG award in a 29-year career. I'm looking at you, Tony Hale.
