SAG Award Winners Surprise With “Black Panther”

The Screen Actors Guild award winners were announced last night and while there were plenty of expected wins, there was also the shocker of a superhero film garnering one of the highest honors of the night.

I doubt we need to state the obvious with most of the categories given that it’s a repeat of the Golden Globes. Rami Malek won for his performance as Freddie Mercury in the biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Glenn Close nabbed herself an award for “The Wife.” Mahershala Ali scored for Best Supporting Actor for “Green Book.”

A bit of a surprise was in the category of Best Supporting actress when Emily Blunt won, not for “Mary Poppins Returns” but “A Quiet Place.” It feels odd that she’d been considered a supporting role in that film when she takes complete charge of the third act and is also the only human on the poster but a win is a win and Blunt deserves it.

But, of course, the big news of the night was “Black Panther.” Sure, it wouldn’t be a surprise that the Marvel superhero film won the award of Stunt Ensemble but to win for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture is big news and another new record for a film already breaking plenty.  Chadwick Boseman, who played the titular hero of the picture, spoke on how important it was for such diversity in a big film such as this.
