Screen Actors Guilds: Gary Oldman leads Oscars pack with best actor award

Margot Robbie will be vying for a SAG award along with Nicole Kidman and other Aussies

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has played as a timely if controversial film, touching on topics of racism, sexual violence, and police brutality.

McDormand won the Best Actress title, while Sam Rockwell won the Best Supporting Actor for their roles in the film.

The awards are a bellwether for the Oscars in March, as its members represent about 1,200 of the roughly 6,000 voters for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Like the more flashy Golden Globes on Jan 7, Sunday's event also had alleged sexual harassers in its sights.

Politics aside, it's still a night for actors to honor each other.

In addition, nearly all the presenters were women this year.

James Franco, a best actor nominee for The Disaster Artist, did show up but skipped the red carpet and did not win.

The show was presented by Kristen Bell, making "The Good Place" actor the first female host in the history of the SAG Awards.

It looks like we're all going to be "Ginsburned" - as Saturday Night Live comedian Kate McKinnon would say -for a while. When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg began her legal crusade, women were treated differently than men by law.

There were more calls for change by women in Hollywood at the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday. It's Allison Janney for "I, Tonya"!

Gary Oldman continued his winning streak at the SAG awards by bagging yet another Best Actor award for his performance as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's biopic Darkest Hour.

One of the show's most moving speeches came from first-time victor Nicole Kidman who took home the Female Actor in a Television Movie or Series award for her performance in HBO's Big Little Lies.

"How wonderful it is that our careers can go beyond 40 years old?" the 50-year-old actress concluded to massive applause.

"Truth is power and women are stepping into their power", she said.

Women again dominated the TV arena with "Big Little Lies" taking home the limited series awards and Best Actor and Best Actress for Alexander Skarsgard and Nicole Kidman, respectively.

Moments later his series won for best series.

Actors Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard took trophies for playing unconventional spouses in "Big Little Lies", and "Veep" was voted the victor for Comedy Ensemble, with lead Julia Louis-Dreyfus also winning for the Selina Meyer role. Most importantly, regardless of our differences, I think we can all come together and delight in one thing - "Frozen 2" is coming out in theaters in 2019!
