#MeToo is spotlighted at 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards

#MeToo is spotlighted at 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards

The Golden Globes were dominated by the legacy of #MeToo, with many attendees dressing in black and wearing pins in support of the Time's Up campaign against sexual harassment - but last night the signs of protest were few and far between.

A sniffly Ms. Kidman, who said she was fighting the flu, used her speech at the SAG-Aftra ceremony to champion shows and films that include prominent roles for women "beyond 40 years old", urging studios and financiers to continue supporting age diversity for female actors.

24th SAG Awards focused on women, with an agenda of nearly all female presenters.

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards have wrapped up in Hollywood, and this year they were a little different.

Taking to the stage for her opening monologue, actor Kristen Bell said that she was the "first lady" of the event and joked that The Handmaid's Tale was a documentary.

"Regardless of our differences, I think we can all come together and delight in one thing", Bell said.

"There has never been a host for this awards show", Bell said. I love all of you y'all.

The Best Moments From 2018 SAG Awards

Sam Rockwell clenched the award for outstanding male actor in a supporting role for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Veep took home the actor for TV Comedy Ensemble, and This Is Us also took the best TV Drama Ensemble prize. But it's been 22 years since a film that wasn't at least nominated for best ensemble at the SAG Awards won best picture at the Oscars.

The SAG Awards are a reliable predictor of the victor for the best actor and actress Academy Awards; this year's show comes two days before Oscar nominations are announced.

The best actress in a miniseries recipient said she had been working since she was 14 and the award "meant a lot".

Rita Moreno presented the award to Freeman, who received a standing ovation and kissed the actress gently on the lips when he took the stage.

The This Is Us star made history by winning Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. But for the multigenerational cast of the NBC family drama, the win for best ensemble in a drama series wasn't just a celebratory moment; it was a full-blown Pearson family reunion!
