AceShowbiz - The 26th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards had announced the full winners in TV department on Sunday night, January 19. Taking place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the ceremony honored several acclaimed works in TV with "Game of Thrones" being one of winners.
"The Crown" made history that night after being announced as the recipient of the trophy for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the SAG Awards. On behalf of her co-stars Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter took the stage to receive the accolade.
Flanked by co-stars Josh O'Connor and Erin Doherty, the Princess Margaret depictor said in her speech, "I'm sorry there are only three of us here. There are actually 249 members of 'The Crown' cast but we couldn't all come here. And we're all working, like, tomorrow so we're leaving in about five minutes. But thank you so much. Obviously, we're all here because of other people's really good work. I think it will be nice to thank Nina Gold who cast us and obviously, we wouldn't be anywhere without the words. So, [Peter] Morgan. Thank you for his genius. And Left Bank, Netflix."
"It's the most fun job and I'm amazed that we get a prize on top of the the fun-ness of doing it. And it's our privilege to be on this great show. I've had the time of my life, I think we all have. And it's really as good as it gets, this show. I really recommend it, if you want a job," she went on saying. "It's amazing how well produced this and it's because of Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harrie. I would thank everybody else but they're all asleep at home, so there's not much point. And Netflix, I love you very much. Lots of love. Thank you."
Also among the winners that night was Jennifer Aniston, who emotionally took home the trophy after being announced as the best actress in a drama series for her stunning appearance on "The Morning Show". The award marked the "Friends" alum's first SAG Award in nearly 25 years.
"What? Oh my gosh, this is so unbelievable. What a room," Jen said, tearing up during the speech. "I was thinking back to when I was a little girl and I would -- I didn't have a VCR but I had a tape recorder and I would tape Laverne and Shirley, Happy Days on my tape deck, and I would listen to these episodes in my head, and I would just think, 'One day, I'm goig to do that. I really know I'm going to get out of this house' -- that's another story -- 'and I'm going to be up there. I'm going to be that.' "
"And then I got a Bob's Big Boy commercial, and I got into SAG, and they were humble beginnings, but you have to start somewhere," she continued. "So I just have to say, I'm so grateful. Oh, Adam Sandler, your performance is extraordinary, and your magic is real, buddy. I love you!"
Other winners included Peter Dinklage, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and Michelle Williams among others. Meanwhile, "Parasite" and Joaquin Phoenix were among the winners in movie department.
