Dresses, awards and Trump: SAG Awards 2017

Last night stars from the screen gathered in LA to celebrate the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards. Stars from both film and television were dressed in New York Fashion Week designers, fully armed with waves and smiles for fans.

History was made when Viola Davies became the first black woman to win five SAG Awards. She was awarded for her supporting role in Fences, in her acceptance speech she thanked playwright August Wilson for creating the story about working class black women and men.

Davies speech wasn’t the only stand out one of the evening.
