The 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards: What Went Down?

February 28, 2022 Share

Will Smith, Squid Game and CODA were among the winners at the 2022 SAG Awards in Santa Monica last night.

Indie drama CODA was the biggest winner of last night’s Screen Actors Guild awards as it picked up best ensemble in a movie and best supporting actor for Troy Kotsur, who became the first-ever deaf actor to win an individual SAG award.

CODA is an Apple drama about a deaf family living in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and has also been nominated for three Academy Awards at the end of March.

“This validates the fact that we deaf actors can work like anyone else,” CODA star Marlee Matlin said. “We look forward to more opportunities for deaf actors.”

Kotsur managed to see off stiff competition from Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto to win the best supporting male actor category.

Using a sign language interpreter, he said: “Now I feel I’m finally part of the family, I know you all are artists, and I know you all know what it’s like to be a starving actor. Back then I used to sleep in my car, I slept in my dressing room backstage, I couch-surfed and all of that. You feel me, right? So thank you so much.”

In a night that saw Hollywood’s elite go all out on the red carpet, Squid Game’s Jung Ho-Yeon accepted her award for best female actor in a drama series donning a lavish black Louis Vuitton dress.

Her co-star Lee Jung-Jae won best male actor in a drama series as the South Korean Netflix phenomenon became the first foreign language series to win a Screen Actors Guild award in the TV categories. IT missed out on the best ensemble in a drama series though, which went to Succession.

Michael Keaton then won best male actor in a TV movie or limited series award for his role in Dopesick. The 70-year-old was nowhere to be seen when Salma Hayek announced his name, but he finally appeared and apologised to the audience for his “quick trip to the bathroom”.

Will Smith took home his first Screen Actors Guild award – best male actor in a leading role for his depiction of Richard Williams in the tennis drama King Richard.

Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain took home best lead female actor in a movie for televangelist biopic The Eyes of Tammy Faye, while Ariana DeBose won the award for best supporting actress for West Side Story, telling the audience that it’s “taken a long time to call myself an actor,” referring to her dancing and Broadway roots.
