Orange is the New Black SAG

Actors honored actors at last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, the latest ceremony in the ongoing season of statuettes. And though the event is getting the same buzz the Golden Globes got for highlighting diversity on the small screen, there wasn't much overlap in the lists of winners for television categories. Here's a look at which TV show stars brought home trophies (and what they had to say about it.)

Outstanding Performance By an Ensemble in a Drama Series

Downton Abbey SAG

Winner: Downton Abbey

What They Said: The group passed the statue from person to person with peppy enthusiasm, thanking casting director, crew and viewers like you. "I want to thank the Downton Abbey cast for letting me come up with them," said Allen Leech (Tom), who was sitting at another table with the cast from the movie The Imitation Game.

Other Nominees:
Boardwalk Empire
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
Homeland
House of Cards
