Women Win at the SAG Awards!

Lots of great highlights from last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, with major wins for “Birdman,” “Orange Is the New Black,” and “Downton Abbey.” Once again, diversity was one of the biggest stars of the night.

After Ava DuVernay recently made history as the first African American woman to be nominated for a Golden Globe in the motion picture directing category, Uzo Aduba (“OITNB”) and Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”) made SAG history with both lead actress awards given to the African-American actors.

OITNBI’ve only seen a few episodes of OITNB, but I love that it features a female ensemble that depicts a more realistic, different side of women. Viola Davis also had a few amazing things to say about her win for How to Get Away

“Thank you… for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me.”

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Annalise Keating next season!
