Watch Viola Davis' Brief But Incisive SAG Awards Acceptance Speech + She Shares Her Love for Cicely Tyson

11 hours ago | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

To be frank, I actually didn't expect her to win in her category. I really didn't. Not because I don't think she's deserving (she's Viola Davis, and she's an Actor!), but I thought her category (Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series) was the toughest, with impressive competition, most of them previously nominated and/or won in this category in past years: Claire Danes ("Homeland"), Julianmna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"), Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey"), and Robin Wright ("House of Cards"). So I wasn't expecting a first-timer in that category to actually win it. But she did! So »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

12 hours ago | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

12 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Last night, the 2015 SAG Awards, which aired on both TBS and TNT, honored a lot of newer series. Shows like Orange Is the New BlackHouse of Cards, and How to Get Away With Murder beat out longer-running series like Modern Family, Homeland, and Game of Thrones for many of the night’s top acting prizes, and somewhat shockingly, Matthew McConaughey, who many (including myself) had originally predicted would sweep any and all acting categories with his performance in HBO’s True Detective, came up empty again last night. Here’s the full list of winners (for both TV and film) from the 2015 SAG Awards (the winners’ names are bolded): Drama Ensemble  Boardwalk Empire Downton Abbey Game of Thrones Homeland House of Cards Drama Actress Claire Danes, Homeland Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey Robin Wright, »

Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.

Unsurprisingly it was Julianne Moore who took the award for best female leading role for her performance as an aging academic experiencing the early stages of Alzheimer disease in Still Alice.

Viola Davis’ Powerful SAG Awards Speech Might Make You Cry

23 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There’s no doubt in our minds — that was the best speech of the night!

Viola Davis stole the spotlight at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild awards when she won Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Drama for her work on the freshman drama How to Get Away With Murder.

The second-time winner took the stage in a gorgeous white gown, and spoke of how her 4-year-old daughter, Genesis, asks for bedtime stories – but that she always includes one special request: “Mommy, can you put me in the story?”

Davis said, “It starts from the top up,” and thanked Htgawm's executive producer Shonda Rhimes and creator Pete Nowalk. "Thank you… for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman, could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me."

With tears in her eyes, the star continued, "Thank you to all the people who love me, exactly how God made me."

2015 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: 'Birdman' Wins Best Ensemble, but is It the Oscar Frontrunnerc

25 January 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
