SAG AWARD WINNERS SO BROWN (AND FEMALE)

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series: Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder




Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries: Idris Elba, Luther
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in Television Movie or Miniseries: Queen Latifah, Bessie
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture: Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series: Orange Is the New Black
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series: Uzo Aduba, Orange Is the New Black



And if anybody asks, the votes were taken before the #OscarsSoWhite, the sequel became an issue. It looks like the deadline for SAG nominations was back in December. I've seen all of the performances.They were all amazing.


I'm starting to wonder if an Oscar Watcher boycott can break ABC (who broadcasts it) without black actors joining in.

If ABC can't profit from broadcasting the Oscars, I wonder if we can make the SAG Awards the maker and breaker of careers, make it more important than Oscar for who gets the power.
