"These moments in one's life usually will call for an entire litany of thank-yous".

The SAG Awards are a reliable predictor of the victor for the best actor and actress Academy Awards - and this year's show comes two days before Oscar nominations are announced.

Three Billboards also won best ensemble, the event's most prestigious award, while Sam Rockwell took home the best supporting actor statuette for his role as a police officer in the film.

Franco had skipped the CCA awards after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct in The Los Angeles Times article and on Twitter.

Apart from the awards, the SAG red carpet caught the attention of fans eager for a look of their favourite star dressed to the nines.

In TV Land, Claire Foy and Sterling K. Brown repeated their Globe wins with SAG trophies for The Crown and This Is Us, while Nicole Kidman and Aleksander Skarsgard again triumphed for their roles in Big Little Lies.

"The people that watch with us every Tuesday night and embrace this show that reflects positivity and hope and inclusion, we love you", said Milo Ventimiglia, accepting the award for best drama series cast on behalf of his co-stars in the time-tripping show about a racially blended family.

"It is not always about maliciousness".

"We are inspired that so many powerful voices are no longer silenced by the fear of retaliation", the actress said.

Another big victor on the night was Nicole Kidman, who picked up the award for best actress in a television limited series or movie.

"I'm so grateful today that our careers can go beyond 40 years old..." "Twenty years ago, we were pretty washed up by this stage in our lives.We are potent and powerful and viable".

Bell continued: "Everyone's story deserves to be told. That's not the case now", she said to applause.

William H. Macy won an award for his role in "Shameless", and "Game of Thrones" completed the television winners with Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble.

James Franco, a best actor nominee for "The Disaster Artist", did show up but skipped the red carpet and did not win. "And I said, 'Well, maybe for one night, the women will be more than 50-50 for two hours'".

The treatment of women in Hollywood has remained the main focus of the glitzy award show, nicknamed the SAGs, following on from the blacked out Golden Globe awards.
