The Sag Awards 2022

The 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were handed out last week at The Barker Hangar, Santa Monica, California. The star-studded event kicked off a busy awards season over the next few weeks and celebrated the best performances in both film and television. It also marks the return of the in-person SAG ceremony after airing a pre-taped celebration in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Succession and Ted Lasso led the television categories, both of which garnered five nominations in the respective drama and comedy categories, including best ensemble. Korean hit series Squid Game made history with its nomination in the ensemble category as the first non-English show to be recognized by the Guild. On the film side, The Power of the Dog led individual acting categories with three nominations, but the Jane Campion-directed movie didn’t crack the ensemble category. The most recognized of the ensemble nominees was House of Gucci, which scored individual nominations for Lady Gaga and Jared Leto. Additionally, Troy Kotsur, Daniel Durant, and Marlee Matlin of CODA are the first deaf actors to be recognized in the motion picture ensemble category, and Kotsur is the first deaf performer to land an individual acting award in the award’s history. The red carpet, of course, was graced by gorgeous women with incredible styles. Here are some notable looks from that night.
