SAG Awards 2016: Idris Elba wins best actor in a limited series
Idris Elba just became a two-time SAG Award winner.
Shortly after collecting the supporting actor award for his role in Beasts of No Nation, the actor returned to the stage Saturday to accept the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Luther.
I really don’t know what to say tonight, man. Two wins in one night, that’s incredible,” he said, after collecting the Actor statuette (and a quick hug) from Room star Jacob Tremblay, who helped present the category.
Elba also thanked his family. “I want to shout out to my beautiful children … when dad goes away, I think about you all the time. I love you so much,” he said. “And mom, I love you more.”
Elba’s SAG victory in this category took him past a stacked category of fellow nominees: Ben Kingsley (Tut), Ray Liotta (Texas Rising), Bill Murray (A Very Murray Christmas), and Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall).
