T he 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® kicked off awards season with a bang, drawing together some of the industry's most talented actors and showcasing the year's outstanding performances. There were some impressive firsts this year. Kristen Bell was the show's first host. Sterling K. Brown became the first African-American to win a SAG Award for Male Actor in a Drama Series. And, for the first time, in a tribute to the women of the entertainment industry, all 13 Actor® awards were presented by women. Although not the focus of the evening, the recent revelations about harassment in the industry were on everyone's mind, but there was a strong sense of optimism that this could be a turning point. "We are living in a watershed moment and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let's make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence," Bell said. "Because fear and anger never win the race." SAG Awards in the Double honoree Sterling K. Brown made history. KEVIN MAZUR/GETTY IMAGES
