Orange Is the New Black, Birdman Top SAG Awards

See the full list of winners

Joyce Eng

Netflix was the big winner at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, winning its first three awards, while Birdman had the best weekend ever.
Orange Is the New Black
took home two trophies: Uzo Aduba for TV comedy actress to go with her guest actress Emmy. Minutes later, the show won comedy ensemble. Its 40-member credited cast is the largest to win the category.
Fresh off his Golden Globe victory, Kevin Spacey snagged drama actor for House of Cards, meaning Matthew McConaughey did not win any of the major prizes (Emmy, Globe, SAG) for his much-hyped turn on True Detective.
Already a two-time SAG winner for The Help, Viola Davis earned the TV drama actress prize for How to Get Away with Murder. She is the third Shondaland lady to win the category after Grey's Anatomy's Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson.
William H. Macy upset in the TV comedy actor race, winning his first major award for the Showtime series. Like Orange, Shameless was competing in drama last year before switching to comedy.

The cast of Downton Abbey reclaimed the drama ensemble crown it won two years ago. It's the sixth show to win the award twice after The West Wing, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire.
A day after its surprise Producers Guild Award win, the cast of Birdman earned the film ensemble prize. Birdman star Michael Keaton, however, lost the lead actor award to The Theory of Everything's Eddie Redmayne. Of the four acting categories, lead actor has the best track record with Oscar: 16 of the category's 20 winners have gone on to win the lead actor Oscar, including the last 10. (Benicio del Toro won the SAG in lead for Traffic, but won the Oscar in supporting.)
Oscar front-runners Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) won lead actress, supporting actress and supporting actor, respectively.
Debbie Reynolds
received the Life Achievement Award, presented by her daughter Carrie Fisher.
