The awards season continues with the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards, honoring the best performance of the year in film and television. And following the Golden Globes, it's yet another showcase for women. Kristen Bell serves as the first-ever host for the SAG Awards and all of the 13 awards will be presented by women.

Will the same group of four actors who won at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards continue to dominate the awards season on their way to the Oscars, or will new contenders emerge? And on the TV side, will new shows like The Handmaid's Tale and GLOW prevail or will old favorites win out?

Here is my live blog for the 2018 SAG Awards with all of the winners.

TV STUNT ENSEMBLE: Game of Thrones


Before the telecast, the Stunt awards were announced. The smash hit Wonder Woman became just the second superhero film in the 11 years this award has been handed out to win it, joining The Dark Knight.

And for the seventh year in a row, Game of Thrones wins. But since the final season won't air until 2019, every other Stunt team on television is probably salivating over the opportunity to win this award next year.

I'm an Actor: As always, the show opens with various actors telling stories about the start of their careers, but this time it's all female actors talking about their dreams when they were little girls.

Monologue: Kristen Bell touts being the first host and a lady, and as the First Lady, she wants to fight cyberbullying, a dig at Melania Trump's initiative despite her husband. She has a few good jokes (like Elisbaeth Moss from the documentary The Handmaid's Tale) and then talks about the importance of telling everyone's stories.

TV COMEDY ACTOR: William H. Macy, Shameless

This is his third win in this category, tying Will and Grace's Sean Hayes who are both far behind Alec Baldwin's seven wins for 30 Rock. He talks about how acting is about telling the truth, which is important in today's climate.

TV COMEDY ACTRESS: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep

This is her fifth win in this category, more than any other actress. She's not at the event. She now has a career total of eight SAG Awards, tying the all-time record held by Alec Baldwin and Julianna Margulies.


This is the first time the show has won this award and with it, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is now the all-time biggest SAG winner with nine trophies (five for Seinfeld and four for Veep, a mix of individual and ensemble). Matt Walsh jokingly bumbles through an acceptance speech.


Wow, Janney is cleaning up this awards season and she's hot on Julia's heels with seven career SAG Awards (three for film and four for The West Wing).

FILM SUPPORTING ACTOR: Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

It's starting to seem like Janney and Rockwell are just going to steamroll their ways to the Oscar. Sam is excited and charming in talking about how he loves actors, even though they're nuts.

TV LIMITED SERIES/MOVIE ACTOR: Alexander Skarsgard, Big Little Lies

Wow, in a field with a bunch of leading men, this supporting performance wins and even he seems confused. He makes a great joke about the debate over who the best male actor in the world is: Robert De Niro or the tall blond guy from True Blood.


For her 10th career SAG nomination, Nicole finally wins one for the first time. She's grateful, despite having the flu and the fact that she was working on a new role until 1am last night. She is proud to be working at a moment when women over 40 actually have great roles.


Five years ago he presented this award to Rita Moreno, and now she gets to repay the favor. Morgan Freeman has had one hell of a career, and despite playing both God and the President, I still think it's The Shawshank Redemption that he will forever be remembered for. He's so cool that he wears a hat during his speech, which is very short.

TV DRAMA ACTOR: Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us

Believe it or not, he's the first black actor to win in this category, and actually the only black nominee ever. He thanks his actress wife, his white family in the cast (who he thanks for not being like the white family in Get Out) and the two younger actors who also play Randall.

TV DRAMA ACTRESS: Claire Foy, The Crown

What the hell? This is the first major award that Elisabeth Moss hasn't won since The Handmaid's Tale premiered. Foy is also a repeat winner from last year, like Macy and Louis-Dreyfus.


The cast is shocked and excited, as they should be. This is the first time a major broadcast network has won this award in 11 years (since Grey's Anatomy). Milo Ventimiglia speaks and thanks everyone associated with the show. He also thanks the fans who watch and embrace this show that is all about inclusion and hope.

FILM LEAD ACTOR: Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour

The Oscar nominations aren't even out yet, but we can just write his name on the trophy right now. He's a bit tongue-tied and overwhelmed.

FILM LEAD ACTRESS: Frances McDormand, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Well, tonight basically solidified the four acting frontrunners for this year's Oscars. She's awesome and advocates for younger actresses to win doorstops too.

FILM ENSEMBLE: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Another sweep, just like at the Globes. This is only the fourth movie to win three SAG Awards, the others being American Beauty, Chicago and The Help. In a funny little bit of trivia, Peter Dinklage has 11 nominations for Game of Thrones (for both individual and ensemble)m yet has lost all of them, and his first SAG win is as a part of this film ensemble. And Woody Harrelson is the 16th person to win SAG Awards as a part of two film ensembles (his first was in No Country for Old Men).
