Neon’s South Korean drama “Parasite,” Netflix’s British royalty drama series “The Crown” and Amazon Prime Video’s retro American comedy series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” were the top winners in their fields at the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on January 19, 2020. TNT and TBS had the live U.S. telecast of the show, which did not have a host. However, comedic actor Eugene Levy and his son Dan Levy appeared on stage multiple times during the show to give introductions.

“Parasite” made SAG Awards history by being the first non-English-language film to win the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. “The Crown” received the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” got the prizes for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, while “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” co-star Tony Shalhoub won for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series.

There was no one movie or TV show that dominated at the award ceremony, since the prizes were spread out, with the winning movies and TV shows getting one or two prizes each. Columbia Pictures’ drama “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” went into the ceremony with four nominations each. Lionsgate’s sexual-harassment film “Bombshell” and Netflix’s mobster drama “The Irishman,” also had four nominations each, but ultimately didn’t win an SAG Awards.

In the movie categories, Joaquin Phoenix of “Joker” won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. Renée Zellweger of “Judy was awarded Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Brad Pitt of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. Laura Dern of “Marriage Story” received the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

In the TV categories, other top winners included FX’s limited series “Fosse/Verdon,” which swept the TV movie/mini series categories. The biographical story of husband-and-wife dance team Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon garnered SAG Awards for Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, the lead actors who played Fosse and Verdon in the series.

For its final season, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” won two SAG Awards: Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series (for Peter Dinklage) and Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. Jennifer Aniston of Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show” received the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, the first SAG Award for Apple’s streaming service. Phoebe Waller-Bridge of Amazon Prime Video’s “Fleabag” won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.

Brown, Steve Buscemi, Gabrielle Carteris, Gwendoline Christie, Glenn Close, Choi Woo Shik, Kaitlyn Dever, Daveed Diggs, Taron Egerton America Ferrera, Jennifer Garner, Roman Griffin Davis, Danai Gurira, Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson, Jharrel Jerome, Harvey Keitel, Nicole Kidman, Lee Jung Eun, Lee Sun Kyun, Dan Levy, Eugene Levy, Lupita Nyong’o, Park So Dam, Pedro Pascal, Anna Paquin, Lili Reinhart, Margot Robbie, Ray Romano, Song Kang Ho Charlize Theron, Sophie Turner, Taika Waititi and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
