Celebrities often seem like they’re “prettier” or “richer” or “better” than us regular folk, but one night a year, they come down from their enormous estates behind the Hollywood sign and reveal themselves to be no better or prettier than the average blue-collar union worker. We’re referring, of course, to the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the only event (alright fine, one of many events) where the famous people of the world pat the other famous people on the back and tell them all about how good they are at whatever it is they do. Recent SAG Awards have gone explicitly political, since Hollywood actors can be free to yell “someone should do something about all of this!” when they’re only talking to their friends and colleagues, but last year’s ceremony took a different turn by avoiding politics in favor of a more traditional celebration of the greatness of acting. Still, last year’s SAG Awards also deserves credit for foreshadowing the Oscars nicely, with Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek both getting early buzz for their eventual Academy Award wins.

We won’t know if tonight’s show was similarly prescient, but if so, it’s going to be a surprising Academy Awards ceremony when Joaquin Phoenix takes home an Oscar for Best Actor in Joker. He won the equivalent award tonight, with Renée Zellweger getting the female actor equivalent and Parasite getting the full cast award—arguably SAG’s equivalent of Best Picture, since it’s ostensibly the movie that had the most good actors. Parasite was the first foreign-language film to ever win this award from SAG, and (not to keep bringing up that other award show) it would certainly be a more exciting Best Picture than freakin’ Green Book last year.
