Brad Pitt and Laura Dern took home prizes at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards on Sunday.

Hollywood’s renowned personalities Brad Pitt and Laura Dern received honours at the SAG Awards 2020.

Hollywood’s awards season began to shape up ahead of the Oscars next month.

Pitt won for his supporting role as a charming stunt man in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

While, Laura Dern was named best supporting actress for playing a ruthless divorce lawyer in Netflix domestic drama Marriage Story.

Both had also won Golden Globes earlier this month.

“It was a difficult part,” quipped Brad Pitt.

“A guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get on with his wife. It was a big stretch,” he said to laughter.

Comedy The Marvelous Mrs Maisel took the top television prize for its ensemble cast.

But, Mrs Maisel actress Alex Borstein said the prize should have gone to quirky British comedy Fleabag.

“This makes no sense,” a shocked Borstein said.

“This is a mistake, but thank you,” said lead actress Rachel Brosnahan.

Moments earlier, Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge accepted the best television comedy actress statuette, capping a year of multiple awards for the show.

The SAG awards are closely watched as an indicator of Oscar success because actors form the largest voting group in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Sexual harassment drama Bombshell went into Sunday’s awards with a leading four nods for its story of how misconduct allegations by women in 2016 led to the ouster of Fox News network founder Roger Ailes.

Ailes denied the multiple accusations from female staffers and died a year later.
