American Hustle Takes Home Top Prize at the SAG Awards
American Hustle rules!

American Hustle won the ensemble cast prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, capping what's been a pretty good start to the Bradley Cooper-Christian Bale-Amy Adams-Jennifer Lawrence starrer. 

The movie beat out 12 Years a Slave for the biggie, but there was a shoutout for Lupita N'Yongo who won Best Supporting Actress for the Steve McQueen movie.

Plus, Jared Leto (who's already won a Golden Globe for his Dallas Buyers Club role) picked up a SAG for it too. Think Oscars' frontrunner! 

More love came for Dallas Buyers Club with Matthew McConaughey picking up the best actor award. And he looked as hot as always picking up the trophy!  

Breaking Bad and Modern Family dominated the top TV awards at the SAGs - the casts picked up the Best Ensemble honours for TV drama and comedy, respectively, and stars Bryan Cranston and Ty Burrell were named Best Actors for their roles as drug kingpin Walter White and hapless TV dad Phil Dunphy.

Dame Maggie Smith won the Best Actress honour for her role as Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham in Downton Abbey, and another Dame, Helen Mirren, picked up her fifth SAG Award as she was named Outstanding Actress in a Movie or Miniseries for her portrayal of music mogul Phil Spector's legal sidekick Linda Kenney Baden in Phil Spector. Michael Douglas claimed the male equivalent for another real-life portrayal in a biopic - his turn as Liberace in Behind the Candelabra won him the trophy.

He acknowledged his father Kirk Douglas in his acceptance speech, stating, "I've got a 97-year-old member of SAG back at home who I know is particularly proud of me getting this award. I want to thank all of you here tonight for helping me get out of his shadow for a little bit."
