At the 2024 SAG Awards, Cillian Murphy‘s portrayal in “Oppenheimer” and Lily Gladstone‘s performance in “Killers of the Flower Moon” stood out, earning them the outstanding performance accolades in leading roles. The competition was fierce, with Paul Giamatti (“The Holdovers”) and Emma Stone (“Poor Things”) narrowly missing the mark.

In supporting roles, Robert Downey Jr. (Oppenheimer) and Da’vine Joy Randolph (The Holdovers) continued their winning streak, securing equivalent awards as seen in numerous recent award shows. Their consistent recognition positions them as frontrunners for the Oscars on March 10, especially considering the precedent from the previous year where all SAG Awards winners in film acting categories went on to win Oscars.

The 30th annual SAG Awards, broadcasted live on Netflix, highlighted Oppenheimer’s dominance on the film side, clinching three awards. In contrast, Barbie experienced a notable shutout, going 0-4 on the night.

Oppenheimer’s outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture is a promising indicator for potential Oscar success, as the SAG ensemble winner has historically aligned with the best picture at the Oscars in five out of the last 10 years.

Turning to the TV side, The Bear claimed the top spot with three awards, while “Ted Lasso” faced disappointment, going 0-4 on the night. “Succession” secured outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series for the second time in three years, showcasing its consistent excellence. Meanwhile, The Bear achieved the equivalent award in comedy for the first time.

A notable moment of the ceremony was the presentation of the Life Achievement Award to Barbra Streisand, an event that stood out as one of the show’s highlights. Jennifer Aniston and Bradley Cooper had the honor of presenting this prestigious award.

With 119,515 eligible voters, SAG-AFTRA’s substantial voting body makes these awards significant in the industry. The show, marking its live debut on Netflix, was executive produced by Jon Brockett and Silent House Productions, adding a new dimension to the viewing experience.

Last year’s ceremony was on Netflix’s YouTube page, making this shift to a live broadcast on Netflix a notable change for the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
