‘Black Panther’ Wins Big at SAG Awards
The trophy’s heading to Wakanda. The Marvel blockbuster shocked cinephiles yesterday by winning the ensemble cast award at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards — becoming the first superhero movie to ever take the top prize. Meanwhile, Rami Malek won best actor for his role in Bohemian Rhapsody, Glenn Close won best actress for The Wife, Emily Blunt took the best-supporting-actress honor for A Quiet Place and Mahershala Ali was named best-supporting actor for Green Book.
Will Black Panther snag an Academy Award? Not so fast: Despite beating out the Queen biopic and Crazy Rich Asians, among others, it’s still thought to be a long shot for the best picture Oscar.
