Viola Davis took home her second SAG Award in a year
For most of the 22nd Annual SAG Awards, things went as expected, as when a luminous Viola Davis took home her second SAG Award in a year for “How To Get Away with Murder” and film frontrunners Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larsonlanded top honors for “The Revenant” and “Room,” respectively. But the voters kept things interesting, with a few notable curveballs — primarily in the TV categories.
Surprise: “Spotlight” Wins Ensemble
“No way,” Mark Ruffalo said while accepting for the cast of Tom McCarthy’s acclaimed movie. And while not a total shock — the top prize was clearly between “Spotlight” and “The Big Short” — the buzz on the latter has been deafening for the last few weeks, particularly after winning the PGA Award. Both feature large ensembles filled with a great mix of established actors and new faces, but in the end it was “Spotlight” who triumphed.
