Al Pacino won the Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday for outstanding performance by a male actor in a TV movie or miniseries for his role playing the controversial Jack Kevorkian in ‘You Don’t Know Jack.’
It marked a trifecta for Pacino: He had already won the Emmy and the Golden Globe for the HBO movie. He was not present the accept the award. He was competing in this category against John Goodman, also in ‘You Don’t Know Jack,’ Dennis Quaid for ‘The Special Relationship,’ Patrick Stewart for ‘Macbeth’ and Edgar Ramirez for ‘Carlos.’
The awards — which dole out honors in both TV and film — are being held at the Shrine Exhibition Hall and telecast live simultaneously on TNT and TBS. A win in the feature film categories is especially coveted: It can be a precurser to Oscar gold. We’ll carry all the breaking news and headlines here on Awards Tracker.
