Heading into the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night, HBO’s “Succession” was expected to sweep the TV races with three trophies (drama ensemble, dramatic actor and dramatic actress). Apple’s “Ted Lasso” was next with two wins predicted (Comedy Ensemble and Comedy Actor). Other shows slated for single wins were “Hacks” (comedy actress), “Dopesick” (limited actor/movie), “Mare of Easttown” (limited actress/movie), and “Squid Game” (stunt ensemble) . Did the Gold Derby predictions come true or were there more than a few surprise winners across the nine TV categories? Read on for our minute-by-minute live blog from the 2022 SAG TV Awards.
As a reminder, the TV side was guaranteed to have several new champions this year since most of last year’s winners (things like “Schitt’s Creek”, “The Crown”, “Ozark” and “The Mandalorian”) weren’t were not all broadcast in the 2021 eligibility period. Indeed, only Jason Sudeikis (“Ted Lasso”) was eligible to repeat his victory from last year.
This year’s congratulations were broadcast live on TNT and TBS on February 27, 2022 from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. In addition to the nine TV winners and six film champions, Helen Mirren also received his Life Achievement Award from Kate Winslet Sunday evening. These awards are voted on by approximately 160,000 SAG-AFTRA Foundation members.
