Manchester by the Sea star Casey Affleck even lost the best actor award to Fences‘ Denzel Washington, something that surprised even the veteran actor, who admitted onstage that he was sure his young rival would win.
Indeed, Affleck won the Golden Globe for best actor in a drama motion picture and also won a Critics’ Choice award and numerous other accolades from awards groups and critics associations.
Other movies shut out at this year’s awards ceremony were two-time nominees Captain Fantastic, Florence Foster Jenkins and Lion. It’s also worth noting that while both Fences and Moonlight went into the evening with three nominations each, Fences won two awards (for stars Denzel Washington and Viola Davis) while Moonlight only won one (a supporting actor award for Mahershala Ali, who delivered an emotional, showstopping speech). Both films lost the best cast award, the SAG Awards’ equivalent of best picture, which went to Hidden Figures, with star Taraji P. Henson delivering a rousing speech about unity.
On the TV side, HBO’s Westworld failed to win any of the three awards for which it was nominated, including stunt ensemble, where it faced off against Game of Thrones. Thrones won the stunt award but that would be the only trophy it would take home Sunday evening. Numerous TV shows, nominated for two SAG awards each, failed to win either prize, including ABC’s Black-ish and Modern Family, HBO’s The Night Of and Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
