The SAG throw award is often seen as a bellwether for the best image Oscar because many of the guild's associates also are part of the Academia of Movement Picture Artistry and Sciences, and actors consist of the biggest voting bloc of the academy.
"Argo" also bested "Les Misérables," "Silver Designs Playbook" and "The Best Unique Marigold Hotel" for the SAG throw award. The film, in which Affleck stars together with Bryan Cranston, Mike Arkin and David Goodman, facilities on a CIA broker given the job of the risky task of saving a number of United states diplomats captured up in the Iranian trend of 1979. Affleck also instructed the film, which has taken in $118 thousand at the household box workplace, and created it with Allow Heslov and Henry Clooney.
"I definitely believed there was no way we would win this award," Affleck said behind the scenes at the Shrine Exposition Middle. "You look at 'Silver Designs Playbook,' 'Les Miz,' 'Lincoln' — I believed, 'well, regardless of what happens, I know we won't win, and I'm OK with it.'"
Accepting the award, Affleck thanked not only the "Argo" stars who signed up with him on level but also all of the individuals who showed up in the movie, such as those whose conversation was in Farsi and accessories who didn't even talk. "They desired to destroy it to create the movie better," he said.
Jennifer Lawrence, 22, took house her first SAG win Weekend, for her cause part as a resolute but psychologically volatile younger widow in "Silver Designs Playbook." The celebrity, whose mother and father signed up with her at the display, first thanked MTV for the award because it was her part on the system "My Extremely Lovely 16" that permitted her to get her SAG cards. She also thanked her movie director, Bob O. Russell, whose son has psychological wellness problems.
"You created a movie for your son, so that he wouldn't experience alone and so that he could experience recognized," she said. "And I think I can talk on part of most of us in saying that you assisted more than your son. You've assisted so many children and … relatives, spouses, everybody."
SAG voters named Anne Hathaway female actor in a supporting role for her performance as Fantine in "Les Misérables." Hathaway made sure to thank her mother — also an actress — for voting for her, in addition to jokingly lauding the union for its dental insurance. "I got my SAG card when I was 14. It felt like the beginning of the world."
Day-Lewis, who throughout the awards season has been proclaimed the front-runner for the actor Oscar, continued his winning streak that began at the Golden Globes this month. Though "Lincoln" didn't win the cast award, he made sure to congratulate his fellow performers, proclaiming the statue "an ensemble award." (Jones, though, was not present to accept his statuette.)
Accepting his trophy, Day-Lewis described how he approached the daunting role. "For some reason, the guiding principle of the Hippocratic Oath kept nagging at me: First do no harm," he said. "And then it occurred to me that it was an actor that murdered Abraham Lincoln. Therefore, somehow it's only fitting that every now and then, an actor tries to bring him back to life again."
