2021 SAG Awards: Chadwick Boseman And Viola Davis Part Of Historic Night For Actors Of Color

This was a historic night at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. For the first time ever, all of the major acting categories were won by persons of color, and bodes well for something similar happening down the line at the Oscars. But this was also a huge night for Netflix, which came away with seven total victories, including Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture for Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, Best Drama Series Ensemble for The Crown, a Best Actor win for Jason Bateman in Ozark, Anya Taylor-Joy winning as predicted by most for her amazing performance in The Queen’s Gambit.

On the feature acting side, Chadwick Boseman came away with the win for Best Male Actor in a Leading Role for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, as expected. His prospects look very good for the Oscars right now. His co-star Viola Davis won for Best Female Actor. Youn Yuh-Yung won Supporting Actress for her performance in Minari, while Daniel Kaluuya continued his hot streak by winning Best Supporting Actor for Judas and the Black Messiah.
