SAG AWARDS 2019: Black Panther Takes Home Top Prize

A Star Is Born Once Again Shutout as Glenn Close and Rami Malek Surge

Last night the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Voted on by the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), the SAG Awards exclusively honour performers by presenting thirteen awards for the outstanding performances of the year in film and television.

What sets the SAG Awards apart from other award ceremonies is that it recognizes acting as a collaborative art. Winning Best Ensemble at the SAGs is on par with taking home Best Picture at the Oscars. That means comic book fans can jump up and shout, “Wakanda Forever,” because Black Panther took home the night’s top honour. Ryan Coogler’s critical and commercial sensation Black Panther beat out Oscar hopefuls A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansman, and Bohemian Rhapsody, as well as the popular Crazy Rich Asians.”

Unlike the nonsense that unfolded at the 2019 Golden Globes a few weeks back, the SAG Awards played out as expected. Mostly. Bohemian Rhapsody continues its improbable surge toward Oscar glory with a Best Male Performer win for Rami Malek. One of the night’s biggest surprises came when Emily Blunt’s performance in A Quiet Place beat out the Best Supporting Role competition (chiefly Amy Adams). Award shows don’t often shower praise on genre films, no matter how good they are. And Blunt isn’t even nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars. The Supporting Performance category was Adams’ to lose.

My biggest gripe? Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble skipped over Mission: Impossible – Fallout in favour of Black Panther. Really? Show me one sequence in Black Panther that stands up to MI’s bathroom brawl. Black Panther’s visual effects team made the impossible look real. Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s team made the impossible look easy.
