    Orange Is the New Black star Laura Prepon seemingly made a reference to the ongoing #OscarsSoWhite controversy while delivering the acceptance speech for the Netflix show's best ensemble in a comedy series win.

    "Look at this stage. This is what we talk about when we talk about diversity: different race, color, creed and sexual orientation," she said as she and the rest of the cast accepted the award for the second consecutive year. Co-star Uzo Aduba also took home the Actor statuette for best actress in a comedy series during the ceremony.

    Room co-stars Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay presented the best male actor in a TV movie or miniseries award to Luther’s Idris Elba on Saturday evening. Before announcing the award, Tremblay stood (on a stepstool) next to Larson to present the award.

    “I am so happy to be spending the evening here with you, Jacob. It’s been awhile,” Larson said to her nine-year-old co-star. “It’s award season. I’ve been working the circuit,” Tremblay quipped back.

    He continued his charm with the audience: “I can still remember the first time I got nominated for a SAG award, I was only nine years old and I was competing against Batman.”

    Mark Ruffalo Dedicates 'Spotlight' Win to Victims, Survivors

    Mark Rufflo and Michael Keaton dedicated Spotlight's best cast in a motion picture win to the victims and survivors of sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church. Keaton also took time during his acceptance speech to speak about fairness, and address the Flint, Michigan water crisis.

    Read Ruffalo's speech below.

    I have to first of all thank Open Road, thank Participant, thank our producers, thank Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer, who just took every single opportunity to tell the truth. They didn't take any cheap way, it was always the truth. It honored these people, these victims — who are dead, and the survivors who are still alive — of one of the most horrific things that our culture has allowed to happen. And this movie allows them to be seen in a world that has been blind to them. And so it is such an honor to be standing in front of you on behalf of them and this amazing cast. And I want to pass this to Michael, whom I love, cause he should be talking tonight as well.

    Read Keaton's speech below.

    For me personally — and I think I speak for everyone. Honestly, this is not only for the survivors of this horrific situation, but for me personally — and I'm only speaking for me — this is really for the disenfranchised everywhere. This is for every Flint, Michigan, in the world. This is for the powerless, this is for the powerful who take advantage of the powerless. And you can hang me for that, I don't really care. That's who I am proud to be part of this [for]. Thank you very much. It comes down to two things: There's fair, and there's unfair. And I'm always going to vote for the fair. I'm always gonna pull for the good guys.
