SAG Awards: John Lithgow Wins Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Drama Series

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

John Lithgow won the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series on Sunday night.

The Crown actor beat out This is Us' Sterling K. Brown, Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, Mr. Robot's Rami Malek and House of Cards' Kevin Spacey for the honor.

"I never would have dreamed of casting myself as Winston Churchill," Lithgow said.

He also thanked Meryl Streep for "voicing my exact thoughts at another awards show three weeks ago," referencing the legendary actress' indictment of President Donald Trump during the Golden Globes.

The star also gushed about his costar, Claire Foy, backstage. "Claire was in the first sentence I heard about this project. I said 'yes' when I heard Claire. I have many actor friends in London who have worked with Claire and the word ‘lovely’ keeps coming up.”

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