Brits Ruled at the SAG Awards
The most hotly contended award of the night – Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Motion Picture – was picked up by humble Brit star Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything. He beat Steve Carell (Foxcatcher), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) and Michael Keaton (Birdman).
Meanwhile, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series was scooped by William H Macy for his role in Shameless, an adaptation of a British show about the underclass. US shows Modern Family, Louie, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family were kicked to the kerb.
Completing the UK awards hat-trick was the win for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, which was bagged by… you guessed it, right? Downton Abbey – natch! Condolences to Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Homeland and House of Cards.
