SAG Awards 2015: All the winners and memorable moments

As Hollywood elite arrived at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles to celebrate the best of the big and small screens, courtesy of the Screen Actor's Guild, the red carpet proved a feast for the eyes - from Jennifer Aniston's vintage Galliano to Emma Stone's leggy, Cabaret-worthy Dior Couture tuxedo gown.

But there was plenty of action inside the awards show too, with a number of the evening's top honours taking a page from the Golden Globes earlier this month - Patricia Arquette, Eddie Redmayne, J.K. Simmons and Julianne Moore all snagged another statue for their performances in Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, Whiplash and Still Alice, respectively.

While Patricia acknowledged her family's long line of thespians "committed to acting for over a century, through feast or famine," J.K. paid tribute to his fellow cast members, saying "each of us is not only supporting the story, the movie, the play... each of us is essential and completely crucial to the story," before thanking the 49 other actors who appear in Whiplash.

Birdman and its cast that includes Naomi Watts, Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone took the big prize for cast in a motion picture.

On the TV side, a celebration of complex female performances granted Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) and Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black) the lead and supporting statues. Viola thanked Shonda Rhimes, the show's creator, for "thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American who looks like me."

Meanwhile, Uzo tearfully accepted her honour by graciously thanking her cast mates and disclosing the fact that she had vowed to quit trying to be an actress the day she was cast in the standout role of "Crazy Eyes." The entire Orange cast was further recognized for ensemble performance in a comedy.

Beloved British drama Downton Abbey snagged the statue for ensemble in a drama, while the night's other big winners were Kevin Spacey, Frances McDormand, Mark Ruffalo and William H. Macy.
