SAG Awards: William H. Macy Wins Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Comedy Series

The awards are being handed out Sunday night in Los Angeles.

William H. Macy won the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series on Sunday night.

The Shameless star beat out Black-ish's Anthony Anderson, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tituss Burgess, Modern Family's Ty Burrell and Transparent's Jeffrey Tambor for the honor.

"I'm shocked to be up here," Macy told the audience. "Probably not as shocked as Jeffrey," he added, referring to his competitor Tambor. The actor went on to comment on President Donald Trump: "I'm going to go against the grain here and thank Donald Trump for making the character of Frank Gallagher seem more normal."

Backstage after accepting his award, Macy spoke about where he and his wife, actress Felicity Huffman, keep their awards. “I’ll admit to having a number of trophies in our house. We have a balcony that we put them on and hoped it would be discreet,” he said.

Macy also spoke about which role he would like to play next: “I don’t like violence, but I would like to play the bad guy — the Nazi, the racist, the Klu Klux Klan guy. And I love comedy. I would rather go to films that make me laugh.”

The awards are being handed out at the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles.
