Hidden Figures, Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Mahershala Ali Among SAG Awards Winners
Posted by Wilson Morales

January 29, 2017

At last night’s SAG Awards, the cast of “Hidden Figures,” including Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae, was the upset of the night over “Fences,” “Moonlight,” and “Manchester by the Sea” to take best cast in an motion picture.  This was a big surprise considering many assumed that the Moonlight would win since “La La Land” wasn’t in the running and has been its biggest threat so far. Also surprising was Denzel Washington winning his first SAG award for Best Actor for his role in “Fence.” He needed this win a big way. Up to this point, Casey Affleck from “Manchester By The Sea” had been steamrolling through the award season with a bounty of wins. Now we have a race.

On the TV side, Netflix’s rookie, “Stranger Things” won Best Ensemble in a Drama Series over “The Crown” and “Game of Thrones.”

Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali won their categories as expected.
