SAG awards: Hidden Figures and Stranger Things win as actors get political

See Which Actresses Stunned in White on the SAG Awards Red Carpet      Viola Davis Zuri Hall Danielle Brooks and more

We're so glad to have you back from the Upside Down, Barb.

From presenter Ashton Kutcher's first remarks, the ceremony was peppered with speeches arguing passionately for inclusion.

The first victor of the evening, Julia Louis-Dreyus for her comedy performance on "Veep", mocked Trump's hubris, proclaiming she won by a "landslide". "My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France".

Several winners attacked Mr Trump's ban on immigration from seven countries. Ali said he saw lessons for today in Moonlight, in which he plays a character who helps a shy, gay Miami boy.

Ross Duffer, one half of the brother duo that created the supernatural series, said that with most of the new season already outlined, "we'll see" if modern politics are echoed in the show.

For example, you could start with American Crime Story: The People Versus O.J. Simpson.

She said: "But one actor in particular I'm going to really embarrass: Matt Smith". "We win. Love wins". The love has grown, and that stuff's minutiae. "It's not that important". Viola Davis ("Fences") and Mahershala Ali ("Moonlight") went into the weekend as front-runners in the supporting acting fields. But the SAG Awards also made the Best Actor race something to watch.

"I'm a God-fearing man", he said, still shaking his head as he reached the podium. I'm supposed to have faith, but I didn't have faith. We stand with them.

Netflix's big night included "Orange Is the New Black", which won best ensemble in a comedy series for the third consecutive year, and star Taylor Schilling had something to say. "We will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home", he said.

Yet the actress told reporters that every black nominee had been shortlisted "because they deserve to be" and "not. because of the colour of their skin". "That's why the most important thing to me was the case - taking care of the other actors".

Sarah Paulson, an Emmy victor for her role as prosecutor Marcia Clark in FX's miniseries "The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story", triumphed again and used part of her time on stage to call for donations to the ACLU.

Denzel Washington, 62, hopped on the 2017 SAG Awards stage totally thrilled to win the Outstanding Male Actor category for his incredible role in the film adaptation of August Wilson's Fences.

The film was at a disadvantage before the ceremony had even taken place, with La La Land not nominated for the best ensemble SAG award, the SAG-AFTRA's version of a best picture award, but the night went further downhill when Ryan Gosling lost the award for best actor.
