The SAG Awards took place on Sunday in a one-hour pre-recorded broadcast. The 27th edition of the awards ceremony was a silent affair, with no red carpet and a virtual ceremony.
The surprise of the night was that the cast of the court drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7” took the highest honor. In this way, Netflix was awarded for the first time the highest award of the Screen Actors Guild of Hollywood.
On the other hand, the film considered the favorite in the Oscar Award contest, Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland,” was not nominated for best cast.
As has been the case throughout awards season, the best actor award went back to Chadwick Boseman for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Boseman, who died last August at age 43, had already set a record with four nominations in a single year.
