While a number of Hollywood awards shows have been canceled or postponed, the Screen Actors Guild Awards went on with the show Sunday night.

The top movie honor at the SAG Awards is the prize for best ensemble. and the winning film was CODA. The low-budget independent movie about a fishing family premiered at the Sundance Film Festival a year ago in the middle of the pandemic.

CODA, which stands for Child of Deaf Adults, not only won the SAG equivalent of the best picture Oscar, but also took the supporting actor award for Troy Kotsur. He’s the first deaf performer to win an individual SAG trophy.

Will Smith won SAG’s lead actor award for King Richard, while Jessica Chastain took the lead actress trophy for The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

Ariana DeBose, who reprised Rita Moreno’s role in West Side Story, was the SAG winner for supporting actress.

What does it mean for the upcoming Academy Awards?

Actors account for the biggest voting bloc inside the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. But recent winners of the ensemble award —the equivalent of Best Picture — haven’t repeated at the Academy Awards.

Just one of the past five SAG Award winners for best ensemble has gone on to take the best picture statuette: the South Korean drama Parasite two years ago. And this year, the current front-runner for the top Oscar trophy, The Power of the Dog, wasn’t even nominated for the SAG ensemble award.

On the TV side, it was a good night for Apple TV Plus, which released CODA. It also won two SAG awards for its Ted Lasso, including best TV comedy ensemble. The hit series Squid Game also scored top acting wins for drama.

Here's a full list of winners:
