449 0

The winners of the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Sunday night with Netflix taking top honors in both television and motion pictures.

Netflix’s blues biopic “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” earned Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor in a Leading Role, Motion Picture for Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman.

The film, directed by George C. Wolfe and written by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, was based on the stage production of the same name and depicted the life of the influential blues icon Ma Rainey in 1920s Chicago.

The win cemented a record-breaking year for Boseman, who earned four nominations this year, including Best Supporting Actor for Da 5 Bloods, as well as Outstanding Cast as part of both film’s ensembles. Chadwick died last year after a battle with colon cancer.

Netflix also ruled the roost for television awards, with its dramas The Crown winning Best Drama Ensemble and Best Female Actor in a Drama Series for Gillian Anderson.

This year’s SAG Awards was presented in a breathless one-hour broadcast that was pre-recorded due to the pandemic and which featured “I Am An Actor” documentary interviews interspersed throughout the broadcast.
