The acclaimed South Korean thriller Parasite won the Screen Actors Guild's ( SAG ) Award for outstanding performance by a motion picture cast the evening of Jan. 19, the first time that peer honor has been given to a foreign-language film. The ceremony was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

On the movie side, a number of the SAG honorees otherwise duplicated those who were previously honored at the Golden Globes on Jan. 5, and are favorites to win further accolades at the Oscars on Feb. 9. Those persons include Joaquin Phoenix ( Outstanding Male Performance in a Leading Role ) for his acclaimed turn as Batman's future arch-enemy in Joker, and Renee Zellweger ( Outstanding Female Performance for a Leading Role ), for her portrayal of iconic performer Judy Garland in Judy.

"I'm so grateful for the privilege of reflecting on the life of one of our own, and one our most beloved," said Zellweger, who was accepting her third SAG honor. "Judy Garland, 50 years later, your community is thinking of you tonight."

Other film honorees included Brad Pitt and Laura Dern, for their supporting turns in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood and Marriage Story, respectively.

On the television side, Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams were both honored for their lead performances as Broadway legends Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon in the FX miniseries "Fosse/Verdon." Peter Dinklage was awarded Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Lead Role for Drama for his turn as Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones. Jennifer Anniston won Outstanding Perfomance by a Female Actor in a Lead Role for Drama for The Morning Show. Anniston beat out Jodie Comer, who played a lesbian assassin on Killing Eve.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge continued her sweep-up through various awards shows this season; she won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Lead Role for Comedy for Fleabag. Tony Shalhoub won for lead actor in a comedy program for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; that series won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The Crown won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

As is the trend with many awards programs recently, there was no host at this year's SAG Award ceremony. For a list of nominees and winners, see www.sagawards.org/nominees-and-recipients/26th-annual-screen-actors-guild-awards .
