SAG Awards 2020: Tony Shaloub wins Best Male Actor in Comedy Series but fans wish Andrew Scott won it instead
The 26th Screen Actors Guild is here! This might make it easier to take a guess as to which actor/actress might walk away home with an Academy Award during the Oscars 2020.
One winner has already been revealed. Robert De Niro will be honored with the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award by Leonardo DiCaprio. 'Bombshell' is leading with the most number of nominations. Following in line is 'The Irishman' and 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'. 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' has four nominations in the series category.
Eugene and Daniel Levy presented the first award of the night to Tony Shalhoub for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' This is the fourth win for Tony in this category.

He is also nominated with the ensemble of 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'. Accepting the awards, Tony shared that he has been a proud member for decades, and is grateful for the award. Continuing his speech, Tony said he shares the award with his fellow castmates and its a joy and privilege.
Tony went on to reveal that he is dedicating the award to Brian Tarantina who died in November last year. Tony is a Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe Award-winning actor who has played a number of diverse roles.
Post Tony's speech, though many fans were happy for him, some weren't as they took to Twitter to say that though Tony is a great actor, the award was supposed to go to Andrew Scott for his role in 'Fleabag'.
Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "STUPID TONY SHALOUB.... that’s Andrews award!!!! (But I do love Tony shaloub on Marvelous Mrs Maisel but omg ANDREW SHOULD HAVE WON) #SAGAwards."
"Tony Shaloub winning over Andrew Scott?" shared a fan. Adding to that another said, "Although Andrew Scott is gloriously my choice in this Category, 1st #SAGAwards win is a Wisconsin connection. Congrats to Tony Shalhoub, who was terrific in Maisel S1, too."
"Slight surprise that Tony Shaloub beat Andrew Scott, but sort of not? #SAGAwards," wrote a fan. While another shared, "Hard to begrudge Tony Shalhoub a win but Andrew Scott was RIGHT THERE. #SAGAwards."
