SAG Honors Baldwin, White, Moore, ‘Family’

On the television side, comedy series awards went to Modern Family for best ensemble; Alec Baldwin for best actor for 30 Rock; and Betty White for best actress for Hot in Cleveland. Boardwalk took best drama and Mary Tyler Moore received the guild's lifetime-achievement award.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Help” won Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer acting prizes and earned the trophy for overall cast performance at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Davis won for best actress and Spencer for supporting actress, while Jean Dujardin was named best actor for the silent film “The Artist” and Christopher Plummer took the supporting actor award for the father-son tale “Beginners.”

The wins boost the actors’ prospects for the same honors at the Feb. 26 Academy Awards.

In “The Help,” Davis and Spencer play black maids going public with uneasy truths about their white employers in 1960s Mississippi.

“I just have to say that the stain of racism and sexism is not just for people of color or women. It’s all of our burden, all of us,” Davis said, accepting the ensemble prize on behalf of her “The Help” co-stars.

On the television side, comedy series awards went to “Modern Family” for best ensemble; Alec Baldwin for best actor for “30 Rock”; and Betty White for best actress for “Hot in Cleveland.”

Mary Tyler Moore received the guild’s lifetime-achievement award.
