Ever the creatures of habit, those weird little monsters we call actors awarded five of the six reigning champions high honors during Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. The Orange Is the New Black cast and Uzo Aduba claimed comedy ensemble and comedy actress for the second straight year. The Netflix series, which boasts a cast of 34, is the fourth show to win the category twice after Desperate Housewives, The Office, and Sex and the City.
The cast of Downton Abbey beat Mad Men to win their third drama ensemble award overall, putting them one shy of ER's record four. Drama actor champ Kevin Spacey (House of Cards) became the eighth person to win his category twice, while Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) joined Allison Janney and Gillian Anderson as two-time drama actress winners.
The only series category to see a new winner was comedy actor. After Transparent was snubbed completely last year, Jeffrey Tambor took home comedy actor honors to complete his awards collection for playing Maura Pfefferman. He is the 21st person to win an Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG for the same performance.
Meanwhile, Idris Elba went two-for-two with his individual nominations, winning TV movie or miniseries actor for Luther and film supporting actor for Beasts of No Nation.He is now the first SAG winner not to have a corresponding Oscar nomination. Voting for the SAG winners concluded Friday, in the midst of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, so perhaps SAG was sending a message to the Academy.
