'Oppenheimer' steamrolls toward Oscars with SAG Award wins


The historical epic "Oppenheimer" picked up more prizes on Saturday at Hollywood's Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, bolstering the movie's chances to score the best picture trophy at next month's Oscars.

The film about the race to build the first atomic bomb took the top honor - best movie cast - handed out by members of the SAG-AFTRA actors union at a red-carpet ceremony in Los Angeles.
Cillian Murphy, who played scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, won best movie actor, and co-star Robert Downey Jr. best-supporting actor.
Irish actor Murphy said he took up the profession after trying to make a career as a musician and often felt like an "interloper."
"This is extremely special to me because it comes from you guys," Murphy told his fellow actors as he accepted his award.
SAG-AFTRA's choices are closely watched because actors form the largest group of voters for the Academy Awards, the film industry's top prizes.

At the moment "Oppenheimer" appears unstoppable. Director Christopher Nolan's drama already has claimed trophies at the Golden Globes, the British Academy Film Awards, and other ceremonies. Honors from the Producers Guild of America, another key predictor of Oscar success, will be announced on Sunday.
In other SAG accolades, the best actress trophy went to Lily Gladstone, star of "Killers of the Flower Moon." Gladstone played a member of the Osage Native American community that suffered a string of murders in 1920s Oklahoma over their oil-rich land.
"My friends, fellow actors, I feel good in what you have done," Gladstone said. "We bring empathy into a world that so much needs it."
Da'Vine Joy Randolph won supporting actress for playing a grieving mother in "The Holdovers." "How lucky are we to get to do what we do. I wake up every day overwhelmed with gratitude to be a working actor," Randolph said.
The awards streamed live on Netflix (NFLX.O), opening a new tab for the first time, part of the company's efforts to expand its live programming.
SAG-AFTRA staged a four-month strike against Hollywood studios last year to fight for higher pay and protections from artificial intelligence.
"It is especially meaningful to be here with us all together again, for this occasion, after going through a very difficult time with the strike," actor Idris Elba said in opening remarks.
In television categories, FX restaurant dramedy "The Bear" claimed best cast in a TV comedy and acting honors for stars Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri.
"I am so honored to be in this community," White said. "I wanted to be part of this my whole life. I had no backup plan."
HBO's "Succession" secured the best TV drama cast for its final season about the battle for control of a family's media dynasty.
Elizabeth Debicki, who played Princess Diana in Netflix series "The Crown," won best TV drama actress. "The Last of Us" star Pedro Pascal was named best actor in a TV drama and appeared stunned when he walked on stage.
"I’m a little drunk," Pascal said as he held his trophy. "I thought I could get drunk... I’m making a fool of myself. Thank you so much!"
SAG-AFTRA also handed out a lifetime achievement honor to Barbra Streisand, the award-winning actor, producer, director, singer, and writer.
