AceShowbiz - Meet the winners of the 30th Screen Actors Guild Awards. On Saturday, February 24, the SAG-AFTRA handed out the prizes for the outstanding performances in movie and primetime television, revealing "Oppenheimer" and "The Bear" dominations.

Christopher Nolan's epic biographical thriller led the pack of movie winners, winning three out of its four nominations. It nabbed Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and Cillian Murphy grabbed the coveted prize for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.

Murphy paid tribute to the "greatest group of actors" he's ever worked with when accepting the award at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California. "This is extremely, extremely special to me because it comes from you guys. My 'Oppenheimer' crew, my 'Oppenheimer' family," he said. "They were the greatest group of actors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I've never felt so looked after or cared for by a group of actors. Every day I'd look at your names on the call sheet and you just made me brave guys, so thank you."

He also recognized his fellow nominees, including Bradley Cooper ("Maestro"), Colman Domingo ("Rustin"), Paul Giamatti ("The Holdovers") and Jeffrey Wright ("American Fiction"). "All the actors nominated alongside me I am bursting with admiration and respect for you all," he added.

The Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role was snatched by Lily Gladstone for her role in "Killers of the Flower Moon", while Da'Vine Joy Randolph won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her role in "The Holdovers". "Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One" also took home one trophy in the Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble category.

In her acceptance speech, Gladstone, who took the award ahead of Annette Bening ("Nyad"), Carey Mulligan ("Maestro"), Margot Robbie ("Barbie") and Emma Stone ("Poor Things"), stressed the importance of "speaking your truths" and supporting one another. She went on urging people to "keep telling stories, everyone in this room, to everybody watching, those of you who are not actors but have a story that needs to be heard."

In a shocking twist of event, "Barbie", which was tied with "Oppenheimer" for the most nominations (4), did not win any.

Meanwhile, in the television front, "The Bear" became the biggest winner with three awards. It bagged Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series for Jeremy Allen White and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for Ayo Edebiri.

White pledged to thank the people who worked on the FX series "for the rest of [his] life" as he accepted the award for his portrayal of Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto. "I've wanted to be a part of this community my whole life, I had no back-up plan. I started very young and I'm so honoured to be standing in front of you today. To get this from my peers, who I admire so much, thank you," he shared.

Edebiri, meanwhile, hailed her win to be "insane," but she felt "so grateful" nevertheless. "One of the biggest displays of that is 'The Bear' and the cast and crew of that show, it wouldn't be possible without you guys, you're a miracle and I'm so grateful to be in your company, you've made me a better person and maybe a better actor," she added. "Thank you very much again, this is very cool."

"Beef" picked up two awards, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series for Steven Yeun and Ali Wong respectively.

"The Last of Us" also won two, through Pedro Pascal's win for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series and in Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series category.

Elizabeth Debicki won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Princess Diana on "The Crown", while "Succession", which was nominated in four categories, won one for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Speaking on behalf of the cast, Alan Ruck told the audience, "Well one last hurrah, I think. Right now, you're lucking at some of the luckiest people on the planet and some of the most grateful because not only did we all work on one of the best television shows maybe ever, we made friends for life."

The show also presented Life Achievement Award to Barbra Streisand. "This is such a wonderful award to get because you know in advance you're going to get it. You don't have to sit there in squirm...," she jokingly said in her speech. "And if you don't have to put on such a happy face, 'I'm so happy to lose!' Anyway, you all know what I mean."
