'This Is Us' Wins SAG Award for Best Ensemble

"To Dan Fogelman, our fearless leader, we love you so much, and our crew — the best in the business," said actress Mandy Moore.

This Is Us won the SAG Award for best ensemble in a drama series on Sunday night. The cast of the NBC show beat out The Americans, The Handmaid's Tale, Better Call Saul and Ozark.

"A huge thank you to the union, we are so deeply appreciative," said the creative team as they took the podium. "To Dan Fogelman, our fearless leader, we love you so much, and our crew — the best in the business," said actress Mandy Moore. 

"To all our actors and guest actors, our show wouldn't be what it is without you."

In the press room backstage, actor Sterling Brown thanked the cinematographer on This Is Us: "I want to give a shout-out to my DP; I do a lot of scenes with a lot of white people and your boy still shows up — it’s hard to do sometimes."

Actress Chrissy Metz opened up on the struggles of her career and finally getting this role: "I was one job away, I had to borrow money for my SAG dues, I wasn’t even working … Harrison Ford said he just stood in line long enough, so I’ll just stay in line." Metz was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role on This Is Us in 2017 and 2018. 

The 2019 SAG Awards, simulcast live on TNT and TBS, took place Sunday at the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles. Megan Mullally served as the show's second-ever host, following in the footsteps of Kristen Bell last year.
