Last night, the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards handed out some of the most coveted gongs in the entertainment industry to some huge names, films and television series. It was a night full of glitz and glamour and one that saw a number of exciting personalities celebrated for their talents.

Though Hollywood has been plagued with scandal over the past few months, this was a night dedicated to those within the business who were simply focused on bringing their best to their performances. Still, James Franco was in attendance despite being accused by multiple women of sexual harassment. His re-emergence came after he skipped the Critics’ Choice Awards earlier this month.

Frances McDormand and Gary Oldman took home two of the night’s biggest prizes, after being named as giving the Outstanding Performance by a Female/Male Actor respectively in their films Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Darkest Hour. We imagine the pair will be strong contenders come time for the Oscars.

When it comes to Three Billboards, the film was one of the most celebrated films of the night, with the movie taking three accolades home in total, allowing its cast to truly steal the show.

In the world of television, there were some shockers as Stranger Things failed to pick up an award, but Big Little Lies did well with Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgärd bringing home the Outstanding Performance by a Female/Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series prizes.

Then of course, there was the Life Achievement Award which went to Morgan Freeman for his many decades within the industry. We couldn’t think of anybody better!
