'Hidden Figures', Emma Stone & Mahershala Ali Win 2017 SAG Awards

With the Sundance Film Festival wrapped up in Utah, Hollywood took over to announce the Screen Actors Guild Awards winners. The SAG Awards honor the greatest performances from 2016, as chosen by other actors which means this is one of the most definitive lists of the best on-screen performances. Actors know their profession better than anyone and are very particular about good performances. This year, Denzel Washington won for Fences, taking home his first SAG Award after four nominations. The very talented Mahershala Ali also won for Best Supporting Actor in Moonlight, which makes me very happy. Emma Stone and Viola Davis were the big winners on the Best Female Actor side of things. Full list found below.

Congrats to all of this year's SAG winners and the nominees! There's nothing to really complain about with these winners. All of them are well-deserved, even Emma Stone. While it's still expected that La La Land will win Best Picture, in the meantime it's fantastic to see Hidden Figures getting some recognition tonight. That win is probably the biggest "upset" if there is one, but it's a great cast and they are excellent in the film. I'm very happy to see Mahershala Ali winning more awards, he's so awesome and the more we can give to him, the better. Emma Stone is wonderful in La La Land and I'm glad to see her finally winning after so many great performances over the last 10 years. Stay tuned for more awards news leading up to the Oscars.
