Will Smith and Jessica Chastain amongst winners at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards

At Sunday night’s ceremony for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards it was Will Smith and Jessica Chastain who walked away with two this year’s biggest prizes in the film categories, with Smith winning Best Actor for his role as Serena Williams’ tennis coach father in King Richard and Chastain securing the award for her starring role in The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose and CODA’s Troy Kotsur picked up the awards for supporting roles, with Sian Heder’s drama also awarded the prize for the best ensemble cast.

In the TV categories there were historic Best Actor wins for Squid Game stars Lee Jung-Jae and Jung Ho-Yeon, while the cast of hit series Succession were named Best Ensemble. Meanwhile Jason Sudeikis and Jean Smart were handed the Best Comedy Actor awards for their respective roles in Ted Lasso and Hacks.

The ceremony’s other big highlights this year included a Lifetime Achievement Award for Helen Mirren, a Best Female Actor in a TV Movie / Limited Series win for Kate Winslet, awarded for her performance in The Mayor of Easttown, and a win in the equivalent Male category for Michael Keaton, who delivered a rousing speech on the subject of inequality while accepting the award for his role in Dopesick.
