The awards season is in full swing as we speak, with the Screen Actors Guild Awards taking place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last night. The ceremony was broadcast live and held little surprises as to the winners.
In other words, in film, we had “Lincoln,” “Les Miserables” and “Argo” scoop up the biggest awards, while in television, the winners included “Modern Family” and “Boardwalk Empire.”
“Lincoln” earned Tommy Lee Jones the award for Best Male Actor in a Supporting Role, as well as that of Best Male Actor in a Leading Role for Daniel Day-Lewis.
Both actors had to face stiff completion from Alan Arkin, Javier Bardem, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robert de Niro – Tommy Lee Jones –, and John Hawkes, Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman and Denzel Washington – Daniel Day-Lewis.
Anne Hathaway added another win to her already impressive resume, taking home the award for Best Female Actor in a Supporting Role. In doing so, industry insiders are saying, she took one more step towards that much coveted Oscar.
The same goes for Jennifer Lawrence, who won Best Female Actor in a Leading Role for “Silver Linings Playbook,” beating favorite Jessica Chastain with her role in “Zero Dark Thirty.”
In television, there were even less surprises than in film.
“Modern Family” won Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series, while “Downton Abbey” won Best Ensemble in a Drama Series.
Claire Danes and Bryan Cranston won Best Female / Male Actor in a Drama Series for their roles in “Homeland” and “Breaking Bad,” respectively.
