SAG Awards: 'Lone Survivor' Wins Stunt Awards
In awards announced from the red carpet, “Game of Thrones” scores its third consecutive win in the category
The feature film “Lone Survivor” and the television series “Game of Thrones” have won SAG Awards for their stunt ensembles, the Screen Actors Guild announced on Saturday afternoon before the start of the 20th annual SAG Awards.
The awards were revealed on the SAG Awards red carpet by actors Scott Bakula and Shelley Fabares.
Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor,” based on the true story of an American Navy SEAL unit trapped in Taliban territory in Afghanistan, was competing with “Fast & Furious 6,” “Rush,” “The Wolverine” and “All Is Lost.”
The last of those nominations was considered unusual, in that the film’s two stuntmen were nominated but lead actor Robert Redford, who did many of his own stunts, was left out in SAG’s best-actor category.
“Game of Thrones” won for the third consecutive time in the seven-year history of the award. The HBO show was competing with “Boardwalk Empire,” “Breaking Bad,” “Homeland” and “The Walking Dead.”
The SAG Awards begin at 5 p.m. Pacific, 8 p.m. Eastern. TheWrap will update the winners as they are named.
