Kidman stuns in sheer gown at SAGs

The Australian stars were pipped by Anya Taylor-Joy from Netflix chess hit The Queen’s Gambit who won the SAG for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series.“Thank you for your performances, I’m so unbelievably honoured to be in room, even though it’s not a room. It was such a privilege every single day to get to work with the playmates I got to work with, they are so beautiful and supportive and kind,” she said, in accepting her award. Kidman was nominated for The Undoing, Blanchett for Mrs America, as well as Michaela Coel for the acclaimed I May Destroy You and Kerry Washington in Little Fires Everywhere.American comedian Jason Sudekis won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series for his titular role in Ted Lasso. Sudeikis thanked his father for taking him to see Beverly Hills Cop as a nine year old. “I knew at that point I knew I wanted to be a black cop in Detroit, I’m getting there,” he said. Schitt’s Creek won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, beating Dead to Me, The Great, Ted Lasso and The Flight Attendant.“To get to share this award with my brilliant sister and my incredible dad is absolutely extraordinary,” Dan Levy said.“Thank you to all who voted for us, what a way to say goodbye.”Schitt’s Creek’s Catherine O’Hara also won Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Comedy Series, ahead of onscreen daughter Annie Murphy, Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini from Dead to Me and Kaley Cuoco from the Flight Attendant.“I share this with Annie Murphy,” O’Hara said. “I’m flattered anyone might believe I could be her mother.” She also praised the “hilariously empathetic” writing of Eugene and Dan Levy.Despite having no official red carpet, stars still dressed up for the scaled back virtual occasion, with Kidman wearing a sheer beaded Armani gown teamed with Harry Winston diamonds.Gillian Anderson won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown.She took the award ahead of her nominated co-stars Olivia Colman (who played the Queen) and Emma Corrin (who played Princess Diana), and Ozark stars Julia Garner and Laura Linney.“Queeny Olivia has won every award under the sun and to Emma you deserve this along with me, for such a mature and accomplished performance,” Anderson said.The Crown’s ensemble cast had “not got enough attention” for all the depth they bring to every episode, she added. Jason Bateman won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for Ozark, ahead of Rege-Jean Page from Bridgerton, Bob Odenkirk from Better Call Saul, Sterling K Brown from This Is Us and Josh O’Connor who played Prince Charles in the Crown.Bateman outed himself as a a pro-vaxxer with his speech that gave the “biggest thank you” to “the health care workers who have attended to all during this past year and the miracle work from scientists that have given us the vaccines that are not only going to let us continue making fake life but most importantly the real life that we’re all yearning to get back to. Everybody go get your shot and let’s all get back to normal.”Yuh Jung Young won the SAG for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, ahead of Glenn Close, Olivia Colman, Maria Bakalova and Helena Zengel.“I don’t know how to describe my feelings, I’ve been recognised by Westerners!,” Jung Young said. ‘LET’S DO IT AGAIN’The cast of Netflix’s royal drama The Crown won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.Olivia Colman read out every cast member’s name and said “we all loved it, let’s do it again”. Colman also thanked the UK’s National Health Service “we’re very lucky in the UK to have you.”The Crown beat Better Call Saul, Bridgerton, Lovecraft Country and Ozark for the award.Viola Davis has won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor for her role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, beating Carey Mulligan in Promising Young Woman (which Margot Robbie produced), Amy Adams in Hillbilly Elegy, Vanessa Kirby in Pieces of a Woman and Frances McDormand in Nomadland.Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is an adaptation of a play by August Wilson – Davis thanked August for “leaving a legacy to actors of colour that we can relish for the rest of our lives.”Her co-star, the late Chadwick Boseman, won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.The award was picked up by his wife, Simone Leward Boseman, who quoted her husband noting “If you see the world unbalanced, be a crusader that pushes heavily on the seesaw of the mind.”Streaming services again dominated the ensemble category. Netflix scored three nominations (Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Chicago 7) and Amazon one (One Night in Miami).In the past 12 months, we’ve become used to good (Grammys, Emmys) but often clunky Zoom ceremonies (Golden Globes, anyone?), the SAGs have done something completely different, shrinking the awards to a completely pre-taped one-hour special. There will be no red carpet, no host and no set — so everything will take place from wherever the actors are.SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell refers to the annual ceremony as “the actors’ party in the actors’ house.” NED-3573-SAG-Award-SliderBut in 2021, she means it. “This year, it’s really in their house!”“It became clear that people were going to stay in pods and need to stay safe,” Ms Connell told Variety. “And so, we looked at it and asked, ‘Is this a year to do a full celebration when everybody’s suffering as they are?’ But at the same time, we wanted to acknowledge the great performances that are entertaining us.”The cast of Trial Of The Chicago 7 won for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, ahead of Da 5 Bloods, Minari, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and One Night in Miami.Frank Langella accepted the award, quoting Martin Luther King, saying “we need leaders to guide us towards hating each other less.”FULL LISTOUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A MALE ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLERIZ AHMED / Ruben – “SOUND OF METAL” CHADWICK BOSEMAN / Levee – “MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM” WINNERANTHONY HOPKINS / Anthony – “THE FATHER”GARY OLDMAN / Herman Mankiewicz – “MANK”STEVEN YEUN / Jacob – “MINARI”OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A FEMALE ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLEAMY ADAMS / Bev – “HILLBILLY ELEGY”VIOLA DAVIS / Ma Rainey – “MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM” WINNERVANESSA KIRBY / Martha – “PIECES OF A WOMAN”FRANCES McDORMAND / Fern – “NOMADLAND”CAREY MULLIGAN / Cassandra – “PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN”OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A MALE ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLESACHA BARON COHEN / Abbie Hoffman – “THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7”CHADWICK BOSEMAN / Stormin’ Norman – “DA 5 BLOODS”DANIEL KALUUYA / Fred Hampton – “JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH” WINNERJARED LETO / Albert Sparma – “THE LITTLE THINGS”LESLIE ODOM JR. / Sam Cooke – “ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI …”OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A FEMALE ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLEMARIA BAKALOVA / Tutar – “BORAT SUBSEQUENT MOVIEFILM”GLENN CLOSE / Mamaw – “HILLBILLY ELEGY”OLIVIA COLMAN / Anne – “THE FATHER”YUH-JUNG YOUN / Soonja – “MINARI” WINNERHELENA ZENGEL / Johanna – “NEWS OF THE WORLD”OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A CAST IN A MOTION PICTURE DA 5 BLOODSMA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOMMINARIONE NIGHT IN MIAMI …THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 – WINNEROUTSTANDING ACTION PERFORMANCE BY A STUNT ENSEMBLE IN A MOTION PICTUREDA 5 BLOODSMULANNEWS OF THE WORLDTHE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7WONDER WOMAN 1984 WINNERTVOUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A MALE ACTOR IN A TELEVISION MOVIE OR LIMITED SERIESBILL CAMP / Mr. Shaibel – “THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT”DAVEED DIGGS / Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson – “HAMILTON”HUGH GRANT / Jonathan Fraser – “THE UNDOING”ETHAN HAWKE / John Brown – “THE GOOD LORD BIRD”MARK RUFFALO / Dominick Birdsey/Thomas Birdsey – “I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE” WINNEROUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A FEMALE ACTOR IN A TELEVISION MOVIE OR LIMITED SERIESCATE BLANCHETT / Phyllis Schlafly – “MRS.
