All four individual film acting awards went to POC at the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards for the first time in the show’s history, igniting speculation that this year’s Oscars will follow suit.
During the show, Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis’ performances in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” earned them wins in the lead male and female film role categories, respectively. And Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and the Black Messiah”) and Youn Yuh-jung (“Minari”) took home the male and female supporting role awards.
A representative for the SAG Awards confirmed to Insider that this marks the first time in SAG’s history that all four individual acting category wins have gone to POC.
As Insider’s Jacob Sarkisian pointed out, many consider the SAG Awards to be the closest predictor of what’s to come at the Oscars, which has been postponed to April 25.
Should their victories carry over to the Oscars, Variety’s Clayton Davis reported that it would be the most POC to win at a single Oscars ceremony in history.
