Viola Davis, Daniel Kaluuya and Chadwick Boseman were among Sunday’s big winners at the SAG Awards. Along with Youn Juh-Jung, all four major acting categories for film were won by people of color.
Boseman, who died in 2020, won the award for his lead performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, with Davis winning the award for her lead role in the same Netflix film. This marked the first time in years that the top acting categories went to performers of the same film. Boseman is the category’s frontrunner, but this gives Davis a boost as we head toward Oscars.
Kaluuya won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.
Other notable wins include the cast of The Trial of the Chicago 7 earning the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and Youn for her supporting role in Minari.
The Oscars are set for later this month.
