Marvel Studios’ Black Panther continues to surprise many not because of how many awards it’s been nominated for but with how many wins it’s taking home. At the 2019 SAG Awards last night, the film took home the top prize of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, beating out films like BlacKkKlasman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Rich Asians, and A Star is Born.
And no surprise to anyone, Rami Malek won Best Actor for his lead performance in Bohemian Rhapsody, while Mahershala Ali won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Don Shirley in Green Book. Emily Blunt won a supporting actress award for her performance in A Quiet Place, while Glenn Close won Best Actress for The Wife.
And once again, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel continues to impress with three wins in Television. Check out the full list of winners below.

Emily Blunt and Lady Gaga are also being recognized with nominations for their performances in Mary Poppins Returns and A Star Is Born. Blunt also earned a supporting nod for her performance in A Quiet Place. Some of the more popular films like Crazy Rich Asians and Black Panther didn’t get as many individual noms, but their collective efforts are being recognized for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.
As for the TV side of things, Atlanta, Barry, GLOW, The Kominsky Method, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have earned nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, while The Americans, Better Call Saul, This Is Us and Ozark took home nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
