Sterling K. Brown completes awards sweep for ‘This Is Us,’ becomes first black actor to win SAG category
Sterling K. Brown completed his awards sweep for NBC’s “This Is Us” on Sunday, winning the Screen Actors Guild Award following his recent victories at the Critics’ Choice, Golden Globes and Emmys. In addition, Brown made history as the first black actor to ever prevail in his dramatic SAG category. His fellow nominees were David Harbour (“Stranger Things”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Jason Bateman (“Ozark”) and Bob Odenkirk (“Better CAll Saul”).

Since the creation of the SAG Awards in 1995, only white men had been named the winner of this race that combines both lead and supporting performances from TV dramas. The four non-white actors previously nominated here were Brown, Hector Elizondo (“Chicago Hope”), Jimmy Smits (“NYPD Blue”) and Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”).

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises
The Screen Actors Guild usually proves themselves to be creatures of habit: They reward the same stars, year in and year out — following their own patterns rather than setting any new trends.

But the night wasn’t completely by the books. Here’s a look at some of the award show’s biggest curveballs:

Surprise: “This Is Us” (NBC)

Admittedly, this race was a tough one to call: Good arguments could have been made for any of the nominees. But “Stranger Things” was a surprise win last year, and the SAG did it again, crowning the NBC tearjerker. The last time a broadcast series took home the trophy was in 2006 for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Snub: “Stranger Things” (Netflix)

Speaking of “Stranger Things,” the Netflix series went 0-for-4 tonight. Nothing for David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, the stunt team, or the cast — depriving viewers of yet another rousing speech from Harbour and Winona Ryder’s facial

Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash Are the Unexpected Duo We Deserved at the SAG Awards
Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash were excited to present the best male actors in a drama series at the SAG Awards this year, but they definitely got their shows mixed up. The actresses started out on the right track by giving a shout-out to Sterling K. Brown for his performance in This Is Us, but then they gave praise to David Harbour for his performance in Stranger Things and "falling in love with the fish." (Guys, that's The Shape of Water!) Things really took a confusing turn when Olivia and Niecy incorrectly referred to Peter Dinklage as one of the dragons on Game of Thrones. Ha! RelatedHere Are This Year's SAG Awards Winners!

‘This is Us’ Wins the SAG Award For Best Drama Ensemble

‘This is Us’ Wins the SAG Award For Best Drama Ensemble
The award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series (the closest thing the Screen Actors Guild Awards have to a Best Drama trophy) went to “This is Us” Sunday evening. Cast members receiving a trophy included Eris Baker, Alexandra Breckenridge, Sterling K. Brown, Lonnie Chavis, Justin Hartley, Faithe Herman, Ron Cephas Jones, Chrissy Metz, Mandy Moore, Chris Sullivan, Milo Ventimiglia, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Hannah Zeile.

This year’s nominees included two newcomers to the category: Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” nominated for its first season, as well as NBC’s “This is Us,” nominated for its second season — shockingly, this was one of the few categories last year where the blockbuster family drama was overlooked during its first record-breaking season on the awards circuit. (Sterling K. Brown was recognized for his work during Season 1, as he was again this year.)

Meanwhile, returning veterans to the category included “The Crown,

It’s three in a row for “This Is Us” star Sterling K. Brown, who just won his first-ever SAG Award, on top of his recent Emmy and Golden Globe wins.

Brown took the honor for outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series, thanks to his role as Randall Pearson on NBC’s hit drama “This Is Us.” Brown bested a field that included Jason Bateman (“Ozark”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) and Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”). John Lithgow won the award last year for “The Crown.”

In 2017, Brown was nominated twice, both for male actor in a drama (for the first season of “This Is Us”) and male actor in a TV movie or limited series (for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), but didn’t win.

The actress took the stage saying, “I never thought I’d grow up to be the first lady, but you know what? I kinda like it” about her feelings in hosting the evening’s show.
