SAG Awards 2019: Full list of winners as Black Panther triumphs and Brits snubbed

Black Panther could make history at next months Oscars after picking up the top gong at the SAG Awards. The ceremony, which is regarded as a marker for the Academy Awards, honoured the Marvel superhero hit with Best Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture after beating off A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Crazy Rich Asians. It also picked up Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble.

Chadwick Boseman, who plays the titular character in the Ryan Coogler directed film, received a standing ovation as he gave an impassioned acceptance speech, telling audience members they knew they had “something special that we wanted to give the world”.

He said: “We know what it’s like to be told there’s not a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on.
