There was no official red carpet for the SAG Awards today, but celebrities still went full glam for the annual Hollywood ceremony.
Celebrating the best in film and TV over the past year, the 2021 SAGS virtual ceremony got underway at 11am AEDT, with The Crown and Schitt’s Creek tied at the top with five nods apiece.
Netflix’s breakout series Bridgerton nabbed its first big nomination, with the cast up for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
Elsewhere, Chadwick Boseman nabbed two posthumous nominations for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Da 5 Bloods in the film category.
But first it was all about the fashion.
At first glance US actress Jamie Chung appeared to be rocking a bright red gown with matching accessories.But her co-ordinating handbag featured a bold message engraved across the front, “Stop Asian Hate”.
The Lovecraft Country star, who was up for an award for the HBO show, took to Instagram to say she was “proud” of her culture and wanted to embody that at the awards.
“In some Asian cultures, the color red symbolizes (sic) joy, luck and happiness. In Korean culture it symbolizes (sic) creation, passion and power. I’m so proud of my history and heritage,” she wrote.
The “Stop Asian Hate” movement has picked up in momentum recently following a mass shooting at massage parlours in Atlanta last month, which saw six Asian women shot dead.
A recent report showed racism against Asians in Australia is on the rise. The Asian Australian Alliance told news.com.au that more than 300 incidents of racism had been reported as part of a coronavirus racism incident survey.
Elsewhere on the “red carpet”, Kaley Cuoco, who was up for an award for The Flight Attendant, made a statement in top-to-toe pink.
