It was a good night for streaming services at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which honor achievements in TV and movies. Netflix led the field with four awards, while HBO took home three.
Success at the SAG awards is widely considered to be an indicator of success at the Oscars, but Netflix and HBO may not want to hear about that right now – though both had big nights, neither won in any categories that they’re in the running for at the Oscars.
Netflix won twice for The Crown (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series – John Lithgow and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series – Claire Foy) and once each for Orange is the New Black (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series) and Stranger Things (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series).
HBO won for Game of Thrones (Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy Or Drama Series) and Veep (Outstanding Performance by a Female Actress in a Comedy Series – Julia Louis-Dreyfus), as well as for the movie All the Way (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a TV Movie/Limited Series – Bryan Cranston).
