SAG Awards 2016: Idris Elba takes home two awards, mirroring Helen Mirren in 2007

Idris Elba won two Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday evening for outstanding male actor in a supporting role in a feature film for "Beasts of No Nation" and for lead male actor in a miniseries or TV movie for "Luther."

But he's not the only performer to take two individual SAG Awards in one night. At the 2007 ceremony, British actress Helen Mirren won two honors. Ironically, they were both for playing British monarch. She won lead female actor in a motion picture as Queen Elizabeth II in "The Queen" and as lead female actor in a miniseries or TV movie for the miniseries "Elizabeth I."

Mirren was nominated Saturday evening for female actor in a supporting role in a motion picture as Hedda Hopper in "Trumbo" and is part of the cast for that film, which is up for the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.
