29th Screen Actors Guild Awards Shine Light on the Year’s Best Performances

By Andrea Carlson

The 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) took place on Sunday, February 26th at the Fairmount Century Plaza, where they honored the year’s best television and film performances. 

Hundreds of celebrities arrived at the awards red carpet with some great fashion choices and some not-so-great fashion choices. 

For best dressed, I would give it to White Lotus star, Will Sharp and Tar actress, Cate Blanchett. Sharp wore a black suit with a red Ferragamo shirt peeking out of the sleeves and chest. Blanchett wore a black Giorgio Armani Prive gown with a sequin bodice and lace detailing. 

Everything Everywhere All at Once (EEAAO) was the star of the awards. The film took the SAG awards top prize for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. I believe out of all the nominees for this award every cast was worthy. I was not disappointed that EEAAO won. 

Michelle Yeoh won Female Actor in a Leading Role for EEAAO. I think she very much deserved her win. Ke Huy Quan won Male Actor in a Supporting Role for EEAAO. I think it is great that Ke Huy Quan won because he puts so much good energy into the world that he deserves some of that to come back to him. 

Brendan Fraser continues his renaissance by taking home the award for Male Actor in a Leading Role for The Whale. I’m very happy for him because I think he puts his whole heart into his roles, and he deserves recognition for that. 

Jamie Lee Curtis won the award of Leading Female Actor in a Supporting Role for EEAAO. I love Curtis, but I don’t think her performance in the film was that outstanding. I think the award should have gone to Stephanie Hsu for EEAAO or Kerry Condon for The Banshees of Inisherin

The nominees for Ensemble in a Drama Series were Better Call Saul, The Crown, Ozark, The White Lotus, and Severance. All the nominees were deserving but The White Lotus won which is not disappointing or surprising. 

Jennifer Coolidge won the award for Female Actor in a Drama Series for The White Lotus. I think the award should have gone to Zendaya for Euphoria. I think Zendaya’s performance was much more profound and memorable.

Jason Bateman won Best Male Actor in a Drama Series for his role in Ozark. I think Bateman is an amazing actor and very deserving of the award.  

One of the most surprising wins of the night was Abbott Elementary for Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The show was nominated along with Barry, The Bear, Hacks, and Only Murders in the Building. All great contenders. I guessed the award would have gone to The Bear, but I’m happy for the cast of Abbot Elementary

Jeremy Allen White won Male Actor in a Comedy series for The Bear. I think White has been an amazing actor since he was young and starred in Shameless so I am very happy that he won. 

I think one of the toughest award choices was Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series. The nominees were Andor, The Boys, House of the Dragon, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and Stranger Things. All the options had amazing stunt performances, but the award was given to Stranger Things. I think The Lord of the Rings was slightly more deserving. There were multiple other wins for performances including Sam Elliot, Jessica Chastain, Jean Smart, and the stunt ensemble for Top Gun: Maverick. I do not think this year’s SAG awards could have gone wrong with any of their picks this year because every choice was deserving.
