Sandra Oh (‘Killing Eve’) and Jason Bateman (‘Ozark’) also receive trophies for best actress and best actor in a drama series respectively.
The 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards took place on Sunday, January 27, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Hosted by Megan Mullally, the award-giving event handed out trophies to a slew of actors both in movie and TV departments to honor their work in the past year.
Among TV honorees was “This Is Us”, which nabbed the winning title for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. The NBC family drama bested fellow nominees including “The Americans”, “Better Call Saul”, “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Ozark”. Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, meanwhile, received the trophy for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series category.
The series also earned Emmy and Golden Globe winner Rachel Brosnahan and co-star Tony Shalhoub an award each. Brosnahan walked home with Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series trophy, while Shalhoub was honored with the title of best male actor in a comedy series.
“I want to thank everyone in Amazon, Jen Salke, and especially James Sterling in legal affairs and not just because I’m in the middle of renegotiation,” Shalhoub quipped in the acceptance speech for his third SAG Award. The actor then thanked “my incredible cast and crew.”
The winnings marked the first time since “30 Rock” won all three comedy categories in 2008.
That night was also a big night for Patricia Arquette, who came out as the winner of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series category for her role on Showtime’s “Escape at Dannemora”. Arquette played a character named Joyce “Tilly” Mitchell, a married prison worker who becomes romantically entangled with both Matt and Sweat and aids in their escape.
The Golden Globe-winning actress thanked former director of the FBI and special counsel for the United States Department of Justice Robert Mueller during her acceptance speech. She also gave a shout-out to “everyone working to make sure we have sovereignty for the United States of America.”
