Who Won at the SAG Awards? “Oppenheimer” Soars, “Succession” & “The Bear” Make Their Mark

2024 SAG Awards Winner

The SAG Awards had some big winners! “Oppenheimer” rocked the movie scene, winning top cast and best actor for Cillian Murphy. On TV, “Succession” kept its crown for best drama ensemble, while the hot new show “The Bear” clawed its way to victory with Jeremy Allen White’s best actor win. It was a night celebrating both big names and rising stars!

“Oppenheimer” rocked the acting awards show! It won the top prize for the best group of actors, like the whole team winning a championship trophy. Plus, two of its stars scored even more awards: Cillian Murphy, the movie’s main scientist, was like the star player and won the best lead actor award, like the MVP! And Robert Downey Jr., who played another key scientist, got the best supporting actor prize, like the teammate who helps the star shine. “Oppenheimer” was a big hit with audiences too, and now everyone thinks it might win even more awards at a bigger competition next month! It’s like winning the championship and then getting picked for the super bowl, super exciting!

The “Succession” family, known for their epic power struggles, won best drama ensemble for their final season, membuking the competition. Meanwhile, the “Bear” crew, who take viewers on a chaotic journey through restaurant life, claimed the best comedy ensemble prize. It was a night filled with surprises, both expected wins and unexpected shoutouts, sprinkled with plenty of honest (and sometimes spicy) speeches about the ups and downs of acting life. Everyone seemed to have a blast, making it a truly memorable night!

Hollywood rolled out the red carpet for its annual celebration, the 2024 SAG Awards, but this year, the script had unexpected twists. Elizabeth Debicki, who transformed into Princess Diana in “The Crown,” wasn’t the frontrunner, but her name sent gasps rippling through the room. The favored “Succession” stars, stunned, watched as she accepted barefoot, with no prepared speech, the genuine surprise adding to her charm.

Across the stage, another upset brewed. Pedro Pascal, the stoic survivor from “The Last of Us,” toppled the predicted winner from “Succession,” Jeremy Strong. “I’m a little drunk,” he admitted, disbelief lacing his voice, “I thought I could get drunk.” His win, like Debicki’s, echoed the night’s unpredictable energy.

Meanwhile, familiar faces continued their victory lap. The dynamic duo from “The Bear,” Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri, secured their second consecutive win for their comedic brilliance. In the limited series category, Steven Yeun and Ali Wong, co-stars in the darkly humorous “Beef,” repeated their Emmy and Golden Globe triumphs. Their wins felt like warm hugs in a night filled with surprises.

But the spotlight wasn’t solely on winners. History was etched when Lily Gladstone, for her powerful performance in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” became the first indigenous actress to win a best actress SAG Award. Her acceptance speech wasn’t just about her, it was a call to action, urging actors to “bring empathy into a world that needs it.” It was a powerful moment that transcended the glitz and glamour.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph, whose emotional portrayal in “The Holdovers” had garnered numerous awards, added the SAG Award for best supporting actress to her collection. Her speech wasn’t self-serving, but a message of hope for aspiring actors, reminding them that “your life can change in a day.” Her words resonated, reminding everyone that even in a night of established stars, there was always room for new dreams to take flight.

The ceremony, a first on Netflix, presented a relaxed atmosphere, with actors letting loose and using their platform to address industry challenges. The 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, a stark reminder of the complexities and uncertainties facing actors, cast a shadow over the celebratory mood. But as Fran Drescher, the former SAG-AFTRA president, eloquently stated, the strike resulted in a “historic” pact, highlighting the importance of solidarity.

As the night drew to a close, Barbra Streisand, the legendary entertainer, received the SAG Life Achievement Award. Her journey, from a young girl in Brooklyn dreaming of Hollywood to a global icon, resonated deeply. It was a poignant reminder that even in a night of surprises and industry turmoil, the magic of storytelling and the pursuit of dreams never lose their power.

The 2024 SAG Awards weren’t just about who won and who lost. They were a story of unexpected turns, groundbreaking moments, and a collective reflection on the challenges and triumphs of a constantly evolving industry. It was a night that left everyone with a lingering sense of wonder, excitement, and a renewed appreciation for the power of storytelling and the resilience of the human spirit.
