Last night, the 2019 edition of the Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony was held at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles, CA, and the cast of Black Panther bagged the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a motion picture.
During their acceptance speech, Chadwick Boseman spoke about the cultural significance of the film’s success, and also referenced Nina Simone’s, “To be Young, Gifted and Black.”
“We knew that we had something special, that we could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see,” Boseman said.
And fans were super proud of them.
Other stars who shined last night include the cast of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, who took home three awards, including top performance by an ensemble in a comedy series. Also, Rachel Brosnahan, who won an individual award.
Mahershala Ali also won for male actor in a supporting role for “Green Book,” while Glenn Close won for performance by a female actor in a leading role for the film “The Wife.”
Congratulations to them all!
