Screen Actors Guild awards 2024: Oppenheimer dominates with big wins

Christopher Nolan’s historical epic picked up three major acting awards while The Bear and Succession shared the big TV wins

The cast of the biographical epic won for best ensemble, ahead of Barbie and Killers of the Flower Moon. Cillian Murphy picked up male actor in a leading role, which was also contested by Paul Giamatti and Jeffrey Wright. “This is extremely, extremely special to me because it comes from you guys,” he told the audience at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium.

Robert Downey Jr won for male actor in a supporting role for playing Lewis Strauss in the film. The actor had previously won a Sag award for Ally McBeal in 2001.

Lily Gladstone took home female actor in a leading role for Killers of the Flower Moon, beating Emma Stone and Margot Robbie. “This has been a hard year for all of us,” she said before referencing 2023’s actors strike. “We bring empathy into a world that so much needs it,” she added.

The Holdovers star Da’Vine Joy Randolph was named best female actor in a supporting role after winning a string of awards this season, including a Bafta and a Golden Globe. She called the film’s director Alexander Payne “truly every actor’s dream” and said to actors who are still waiting for a breakout: “Your life can change in a day and it is not a question of if but of when, keep going.”
