SAG Awards Make History With All 4 Film Acting Awards Going To People of Color


The 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which honor some of the year’s best performances in film and television, aired on Sunday night. The ceremony, which was a pre-recorded, one-hour telecast, was not like previous years in terms of fanfare. (CNN)

All four film acting categories went to people of color for the first time ever. The statues for the four film acting categories were won by Daniel Kaluuya, the late Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, and Youn Yuh-jung, making it the first time since the SAG Awards began in 1995 that these four awards were all won by people of color. (HuffPost)
