Actors Will Smith, Jessica Chastain and the film ‘CODA’ took home the highest honours at the 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards) held this year at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar.
In compliance with California Covid protocols, all attendees of the SAG Awards were required to show proof of vaccination to attend the ceremony.
As a result, “Yellowstone” star Forrie J. Smith, who was nominated along with his cast in the television drama ensemble category, announced last week that he would skip out on the ceremony, reports variety.com.
The television categories were led by ‘Succession’ and ‘Ted Lasso’, both of which garnered five nominations in the respective drama and comedy categories, including best ensemble.
Korean hit “Squid Game” made history with its nomination in the ensemble category as the first non-English show to be recognised by the Guild.
On the film side, ‘The Power of the Dog’ led individual acting categories with three nominations, but the Jane Campion-directed movie didn’t crack the ensemble category. The most recognised of the ensemble nominees was ‘House of Gucci’, which scored individual nominations for Lady Gaga and Jared Leto.
Troy Kotsur, Daniel Durant and Marlee Matlin of ‘CODA’ are the first deaf actors to be recognised in the motion picture ensemble category, and Kotsur is the first deaf performer to land an individual acting nomination.
