Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga dealt a blow at SAG Awards
A STAR Is Born actors Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have been dealt a blow at the SAG Awards today, after Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek beat him to a gong.
Malek won the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.
He was also up against Christian Bale from Vice, Viggo Mortensen from Green Book and John David Washington who starred in BlacKKKlansman.
Cooper's loss makes the Oscars race anyone's guess after Malek took the Golden Globe and Bale won the Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Actor.
Lady Gaga lost out to Glenn Close for The Wife. They were up against Emily Blunt of Mary Poppins Returns, Olivia Colman from The Favourite and Melissa McCarthy from Can You Ever Forgive Me?.
Gaga will face off against Close, Colman, McCarthy and Yalitza Aparicio for the Best Actress Academy Award. She is also nominated for Best Original Song Oscar.
Their film A Star Is Born also lost to Black Panther in the category for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. The cast also beat BlacKKKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Crazy Rich Asians.
It comes after Alan Alda has been given a standing ovation.
The legendary actor of M*A*S*H fame was given the SAG Life Achievement Award by Tom Hanks.
He came to the stage with a massive round of applause as the room stood up, and he told the audience it was "hard to describe what it feels like to see my fellow actors, colleagues, heroes" in front of him.
Alda had a powerful message about trying to see the world through other people's eyes: "Actors can help, at least a little, just by doing what we do."
"Let's have fun, let's keep searching," he said.
"We can't solve everytihg but it wouldn't hurt."
Earlier, Australia's Margot Robbie lost out to Emily Blunt in the category for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her role as Queen Elizabeth I in the period drama Mary Queen of Scots.
The other nominees were Amy Adams (Vice), Emma Stone (The Favourite) and Rachel Weisz (The Favourite).
Host Megan Mullally of Will & Grace fame also made jokes about this year's film nominees in her opening monologue.
"They cast black people in Black Panther…Asian people in Crazy Rich Asians…and a Green Book in Green Book," she said.
Mullally also mentioned Lady Gaga, telling her from the stage: "Honey, you are crushing it." She said that in addition to her nominated role in A Star Is Born, and having a Las Vegas residency, she also does Mullally's eyeliner.
She also shouted out to Emma Stone, who just turned 30.
"Our condolences ... looking forward to your reverse mortgage loan commericals," she said.
In announcing the first award with Alec Baldwin, Mullally asked him to "give it to her" in what was meant to be a jokey sexual tone that viewers felt was cringeworthy.
One person on Twitter described it as "very bizarre sexual back and forth", while another suggested it was "ridiculous".
The show kicked off with its traditional collection of actors discussing their craft, including Mike Myers, Yara Shahidi and Geoffrey Owens, the Cosby Show actor who said his side job working at Trader Joe's has actually worked out pretty well.
Darren Criss has won best male actor in a TV limited series for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, beating Hugh Grant, Bill Pullman, and Anthony Hopkins. "Boys, we got nominated with Anthony Hopkins," Criss said.
"That's a feather in my cap I never could have imagined."
Oscar-nominated Mahersala Ali won male actor in a supporting role for Green Book.
"The more I'm fortunate and blessed enough to do this work, the more I need the rest of you in this room," Ali said thanking co-star Viggo Mortensen "for making me better."
The SAGs celebrate a 25th anniversary today, with some of Hollywood's biggest names vying for a gong.
