Streamers take top SAG awards

Streaming services reigned at the 26th annual Screen Actors Guild awards, capturing five trophies on the TV side and one among theatricals.

Amazon.com Inc.'s Prime Video scored a trio of awards, with "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" winning the comedy ensemble series trophy for a second consecutive year and the show's Tony Shalhoub garnering top comedy actor laurels. In another win for Amazon, Phoebe Waller-Bridge took home the award for best comedy actress for her role in "Fleabag."

Fellow streamer Netflix Inc. scored the award for the best drama ensemble for the third season of "The Crown." NBC (US)'s "This Is Us" won that award the prior two years.

Apple Inc.'s Apple TV+ streaming service also notched its first win when Jennifer Aniston grabbed the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series for "The Morning Show."

On the premium cable side, the final season of HBO / Cinemax (US)'s most-watched franchise, "Game of Thrones," picked up a pair of awards: Peter Dinklage won the best actor in a drama award, while the cast won for the best performance by a stunt ensemble in a comedy or drama.

FX (US)'s "Fosse/Verdon" also grabbed two awards: Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams took home trophies for their outstanding performances in a television movie or limited series.

As for theatricals, "Parasite" became the first foreign-language film to receive the top film honor — outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture — for the tale about a poor South Korean household scheming to become employees of a wealthy family.

For the top theatrical actor accolades, Joaquin Phoenix won for "Joker," while Renée Zellweger received a trophy for her work in "Judy." For supporting roles, Brad Pitt took home an award for his performance in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," while Laura Dern won for her portrayal of a tough divorce attorney in Netflix's "Marriage Story." The awards followed their equivalent victories at the Golden Globes; all four have also scored Oscar nominations in their respective categories.

Disney, which dominated the box office for the year, triumphed in the outstanding action performance by a stunt ensemble for "Avengers: Endgame."
