SAG Awards: Smith & Chastain Awards

Will Smith, 53, won the first Screen Actors Guild Cup of his career with his leading role in “King Richard”. In the sports drama, he embodies the ambitious father of tennis icons Serena and Venus Williams. Jessica Chastain (44, “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”) perched her role as the eccentric TV missionary Tammy Faye opposite Lady Gaga (“House of Gucci”) and Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”).

In the first category for the Ensemble Award, the deaf drama ‘Coda’ beat competitors such as ‘Belfast’, ‘House of Gucci’ and ‘King Richard’. “CODA” actor Troy Kotsur (53) was also the first deaf actor to win Best Supporting Actor. The Best Supporting Actress award went to Ariana Debus (31) for West Side Story.
