SAG Awards Big Moments were Black Panther and Bradley Cooper
The SAG awards took place and Black Panther won big.
The cast of Black Panther won for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a motion picture at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards. The star of the movie Chadwick Boseman had the following to say about the success of the super hero movie: “We knew that we had something special, that we could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see.”
Amazon also had a pretty decent night when “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” took home 3 awards which included top performance by an ensemble in a comedy series. Another notable win and acceptance was by Emily Blunt who made her husband John Krasinski emotional with her first SAG win for performance by a female actor in a supporting role for “A Quiet Place”. Blunt had the following to say “The entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly. You are a stunning filmmaker. I’m so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you.”
Mahershala Ali, who has been getting a lot of Oscar buzz also won for Male actor in a supporting role for his part in Green Book. Of course Rami Malek also won for his role in Bohemian Rhapsody. A very beautiful moment was when Alan Alda was honoured with a lifetime achievement award by Tom Hanks. Alan said the following: “It may never have been more urgent to see the world through another person’s eyes than when the culture is divided so sharply. Actors can help, at least a little, just by doing what we do. And the nice part is it’s fun to do!”
Jason Bateman also had some advice in his acceptance speech for up-and-coming actors “You’re just one job away, you’re plenty talented and hang in there,”
What was also eye catching was that Bradley Cooper brought his mom Gloria Campano as his date to the awards. Cooper was nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor for his part in A star is born which he co-wrote and directed.
Cooper said the following about his movie: “I spent about 15 years going from movie to movie to movie. And then I hit 39 and I stopped and I said, ‘What do I really want to do?’ I want to tell Joseph Merrick’s story in The Elephant Man. So I did that for a year,” He went on to say: “Then this story came to me, A Star Is Born, and then I spent the next four years doing that. And the one thing that I know in the future is: It’s worth all the time to dedicate, even if one piece of art comes out of it in a half a decade, that would still be incredible as long as I can feel like it’s the movie I wanted to make, which is this movie.”
This was a good night filled with a lot of stars. Do you agree with all the awards given?
