There were plenty of monochrome moments as some of Hollywood’s A-list favoured the classic palette for the 26th annual Screen Actors’ Guild Awards overnight.
As the hottest stars on the planet gathered to honour the best in film and TV, celebs sashayed the red carpet in sequins and silk ahead of the awards ceremony at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Michelle Williams, Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyong’o and Lili Reinhart all favoured black and white while sexy silhouettes proved a hit with acting elite Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron and Reese Witherspoon.
Johansson’s jaw-dropping gown by Armani Prive turned heads for all the right reasons, picture perfect as she arrived arm in arm with new fiancee SNL writer Colin Jost. Flying the flag for Aussies were golden girls Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie.
Inside, there were plenty of surprise winners, including South Korean comedy thriller Parasite, which beat competition from blockbusters to become the first foreign-language film to win the award for best motion picture cast. Netflix’s The Crown was named best TV drama and Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel nabbed best TV comedy.
Renee Zellweger dedicated her win for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role in Judy to the late Judy Garland while Joaquin Phoenix won the male actor prize for Joker and used his acceptance speech to sing the praises of his fellow nominees in the category, before acknowledging another star, who had played the Joker, the late Heath Ledger.
He said: “I’m standing here on the shoulders of my favourite actor, Heath Ledger, so thank you and goodnight”.
