The cast of Black Panther, from left, Sterling K. Brown, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Chadwick Boseman, Andy Serkis, Angela Bassett and Danai Gurira, made the 25th Annual SAG Awards a historic night when they became the first ensemble of a superhero blockbuster to take home The Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. But look closer. Notice that Sterling K. Brown is striking a familiar pose, his hands again full of two statuettes. In 2018, he also carried home a couple of Actors, after becoming the first black actor to win Best Actor in a Drama Series while also getting an award as part of the Best Ensemble in a Drama Series for This Is Us. Nyong'o also knows the weight and feel of The Actor. She won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role in 2014 for the film adaptation of 12 Years a Slave, Solomon Northrup's 1853 memoir. SAG-AFTRA magazine collectors will remember she, like Brown, was featured on the cover of the post-awards season issue that year. Who says actors do not like reprising the same roles?
