The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel sweeps the SAG Awards


Having never been nominated for a SAG Award before, TV’s favorite ’60s-era comedic series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, won big for its sophomore season.

It was a golden night for the cast of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel last night at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. Well, maybe not golden… more like a bronze and copper of a night.

Amazon’s smash series swept all three comedic television categories, including an “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor” win for Tony Shalhoub, an “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor” win for Rachel Brosnahan, and a huge win for the entire cast of the series in the “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble” category.

The last show to sweep all three categories was NBC’s 30 Rock in 2008. Man, I loved that show!

It’s the show’s first wins at the SAGs, having not been nominated for its first season. Alex Borstein was also nominated in the “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor” category but obviously lost to Brosnahan.

If you’re wondering why Borstein wasn’t nominated as a supporting actress, it’s because the SAG awards don’t break out supporting and lead acting in television, only in film.

The SAG wins from last night only add to the show’s impressive collection of hardware. In just two seasons, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has won three Golden Globe Awards out of five nominations, and eight out of 14 Primetime Emmy Awards. Rachael Brosnahan hasn’t lost in a category she has been nominated for yet.

And The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel isn’t just a hit with critics and awards show votes. Fans love it, too! Both seasons have an above 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and it’s one of the most streamed shows on Amazon.

So, because the show is such a hit, don’t you think the actors should be paid? You bet they should!

Season 3 has already been greenlit, and re-negotiations are already underway. According to Deadline, no significant issues have arisen during the process. So, the main cast should expect “sizeable increases” to “pave the way for Season 3.”

It’s good news all around for both the cast and fans of Mrs. Maisel alike!
