AceShowbiz - The 2018 Screen Actor Guild Awards, which was held on Sunday, January 21 at the Shrine Auditorium, has announced its early winners, which included William H. Macy and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The first honoree announced that night was Macy, who took home the award of Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series, thanks to his stunning performance on "Shameless".
Presented by host Kristen Bell, this award marked his third win for the category, and all was from his role as Frank Gallagher on the Showtime comedy. In his speech, the actor talked about that instead of lies, the job of actors was to tell the truths.
"Shameless", meanwhile, sent Macy a congratulatory message on its Twitter account.
Later, Mandy Moore and Connie Britton took the stage to announce the winner of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series award, which went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus for her work on "Veep". It was her fifth SAG comedy win and her third trophy for the HBO political comedy, on which she portrays Selina Meyer.
