SAG Awards: Tony Shalhoub Wins Best Actor in a Comedy Series
Shalhoub beat out nominees from just two other shows, 'Barry' and 'The Kominsky Method.'
Tony Shalhoub won the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series for his role on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Sunday night.
Onstage, Shalhoub thanked his co-stars and Amazon, and also gave a shout-out to fellow nominee Alan Arkin. "I just want to start by saying that the greatest honor of my life is to be nominated in the same category as Alan Arkin, who has long been an idol of mine and I'm happy to say a friend," he said. "I think he was the reason I wanted to become an actor in the first place."
Shalhoub beat out Arkin for his role on The Kominsky Method, Michael Douglas on The Kominsky Method, Bill Hader on Barry and Henry Winkler on Barry. The Amazon series also picked up wins for best comedy ensemble and best performance by a female actor for Rachel Brosnahan. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel previously won three Critics' Choice Awards.
The 2019 SAG Awards were simulcast live on TNT and TBS from the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles, with Megan Mullally serving as the show's second-ever host.
