Memorable Moments and Speeches from the 2024 SAG Awards

One of the most talked-about moments came when Ke Huy Quan, who famously starred as a child in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” in 1984 before taking a decades-long break from acting, won Best Supporting Actor. His humble acceptance speech, where he quoted the iconic Tempur-Pedic mattress commercials saying “He’s back!”, had the audience in tears:

“Wow, this is incredible. I am so blessed to have been given the opportunities to join this amazing professing called acting. To all the amazing actors out there who inspired me, thank you. And to all the people who gave me a chance after my long hiatus, thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so honored to be here. Who knew that after 20+ years, this Tempur-Pedic mattress seller would be back on this stage?”

Angela Bassett also delivered a powerful speech as the first actor from a Marvel movie to ever win a SAG Award for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”:

“This is so incredibly humbling. To be part of a film elevating the superhero genre to new emotional heights, showing the world that soul truly can be powerful – that is something I will cherish forever. I share this honor with the entire cast and crew who poured their hearts into this film and made Wakanda so powerful on the screen.”

The meaningful speeches highlighted the impact actors can have both on and off the screen.

Criticism, Snubs, and Diversity at the 2024 SAG Awards

While overall the SAG Awards were well-received, there was some criticism and perceived snubs:

  • “The Fabelmans” was shut out entirely despite being one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year.
  • “The Woman King” star Viola Davis was surprisingly left out of the Best Actress category.
  • Majority of winners in both film and TV categories were white, renewing concerns over diversity.

Sara Barden from The Hollywood Reporter wrote:

“With most winners being white actors in both TV and film categories, the SAG Awards dropped the ball when it came to diversity and representation this year. Apart from Angela Bassett’s historic win, few actors of color were recognized for their incredible work.”

Beverly Guzman from Variety noted:

“Leaving out masterful performances like Viola Davis in ‘The Woman King’ shows the SAG Awards still have a long way to go in rewarding deserving actors of all backgrounds.”

Despite the criticisms, the SAG Awards were applauded for continuing to honor veteran actors like Jamie Lee Curtis and Brendan Fraser for their acclaimed comeback performances.

What the 2024 SAG Awards Could Mean for the Oscars

Historically, there has been a significant overlap between SAG Awards winners and Academy Award winners, with SAG picks sometimes being viewed as Oscar front-runners.

This year’s biggest SAG Award winners who could potentially repeat their success at the Oscars include:

  • Austin Butler for Best Actor (“Elvis”)
  • Cate Blanchett for Best Actress (“Tár”)
  • Ke Huy Quan for Best Supporting Actor (“Everything Everywhere All At Once”)
  • Jamie Lee Curtis for Best Supporting Actress (“Everything Everywhere All At Once”)
  • Angela Bassett for Best Supporting Actress (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”)

Additionally, the “Everything Everywhere All At Once” ensemble win, coupled with individual acting honors, positions it strongly for a potential Best Picture triumph at the Oscars. Critic Peter Travers wrote:

“With its ultra-versatile cast and mind-bending ambition, “Everything Everywhere” just leapfrogged “The Fabelmans” and “Tár” as the Oscars front-runner. The SAG Awards may have shown us the way.”

However, past years have also shown that SAG winners don’t automatically translate into Oscar winners. Upsets and surprises are common, setting the stage for an exciting and unpredictable Academy Awards in March.


The 2024 SAG Awards showered top acting honors on films like “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” “Elvis,” and “Tár,” as well as acclaimed TV shows such as “Abbott Elementary,” “Ozark,” and “The White Lotus.”

From Ke Huy Quan’s inspiring speech to Angela Bassett’s historic Marvel first, from glamorous fashion statements to constructive critiques over diversity, the ceremony provided no shortage of memorable moments.

As an important Oscar precursor, many pundits will be closely watching how these SAG Award winners’ momentum carries into the Academy Awards race. While not always a perfect predictor, the SAG Awards have shined a light on the likely Oscar front-runners.

Audiences can continue to debate the winners and impact of the 2024 SAG Awards as they look ahead to the culmination of awards season at the 95th Academy Awards on March 12th.
