SAG Awards Make History – Every Film Acting Award Goes To People Of Color

Historical moment: SAG gave every film acting award to people in color for the first time in history.

  • This year’s SAG awards made history by awarding people of color in all film acting categories. 
  • The actors honored with the top film awards during the ceremony are Daniel Kaluuya, Viola Davis, Yuh-Jung Youn, and the late Chadwick Boseman. 
  • All of the four artists, including Boseman, have nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards.

The 27th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards marked a historical moment. For the first time EVER, all the top individual film honors were given to people of color.

As UNILAD reveals, the 2021 SAG awards were pre-taped with the red carpet was off the table due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the ceremony was as glamorous as ever, with a total of 13 prizes won by some of the most remarkable actors in the industry.

What’s more, this year’s Guild awards will remain in history for honoring people of color in every film acting category. The actors who received the supreme awards are Daniel Kaluuya, Viola Davis, Yuh-Jung Youn, and the late Chadwick Boseman.

The honored artists gave brief, yet incredibly powerful acceptance speeches.

Daniel Kaluuya received an award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his part in the biographical drama ‘Judas and the Black Messiah.’ During his acceptance speech, the English actor said:

“I share this light with all the nominees. Like everyone who was part of making Judas and the Black Messiah, you can’t make a film without an incredible group of people that come together and want to say a truth.

I want to share this with LaKeith Stanfield, Dominique Fishback, to Jermaine Fowler, and all the incredible day players that show up. And Chairman Fred Hampton for guiding us and showing us his power, even though 52 years later.

This one’s for Chadwick Boseman and this one is for Chairman Fred Hampton. Thank you so much.

Viola Davis was awarded Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her character Ma Rainey in the drama ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,’ where she plays along “the beautiful Chadwick Boseman.”

In her one-minute speech, Davis said:

“Thank you, August, for leaving a legacy to actors of color that we can relish for the rest of our life.”

The South Korean actress Yuh-Jung Youn was honored with Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her exceptional acting in the family drama ‘Minari.’ She became the first Korean to win in this category. Her pure reaction won the hearts of many.

“I don’t know how to describe my feelings. I’m being recognized by Westerners!”

Late Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in August last year from colon cancer, posthumously won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. He was honored for his role as Levee Green in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.’ His wife, Simone Ledward Boseman, accepted the award on his behalf.

The whole world is now awaiting the Academy Awards ceremony, which will take place on April 25. All four actors who won the SAG trophies in the film acting categories are nominated for Oscars.
