The biographical film the 44-year-old actress starred in was an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker as she played the titular role.

Meanwhile Kidman played Hollywood icon Lucille Ball in the film that followed her and husband Desi Arnaz as they face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage.

The talented A-listers faced stiff competition as they were also up against Olivia Colman (‘The Lost Daughter’), Lady Gaga (‘House of Gucci’), and Jennifer Hudson (‘Respect’).

Chastain – who underwent a major transformation to become American televangelist Tammy Faye Messner – was shocked by the win as she said: ‘Whoa! Wow. Okay. I’m real surprised. 

Thank you, SAG-AFTRA for this. I’m completely stunned. Thank you. I want to thank my team. I have the best team ever. Paul, Hilda, Steve, Nicole. My producer partners, Kelly and Rachel and Gigi.’ 

She continued her speech by thanking Andrew Garfield, who played Tammy’s husband and fellow televangelist Jim Bakker, and Tammy herself as she said: ‘And everyone in this room knows that a performance is only as good as the people around you. 

‘So I have the best acting troupe one could have with Andrew Garfield, I mean, I’m so lucky. This is a dream of mine to play Tammy Faye. She was a trailblazer. 

‘And she wrapped her arms around those who were repeatedly cast aside and she launched herself into decades of LGBTQ love, and I worked on the project for ten years, and I hope that I made her story — we made her story the way that she would be proud of.

‘I wanted to be an actor my whole life. Since I was a kid, it’s the only thing I ever thought about. There were years of studying and auditioning, and not getting jobs. 

‘And I know what that feels like and the loneliness of what that feels like. For those of you who are struggling, and feeling unseen, I just want you to know to keep going, because you’re one job away. I promise. And the thing that kept me going was you. It was everyone in this room.

Chastain concluded her speech by talking about the recent invasion of Russia into Ukraine as she said: ‘And it was this community. And I love my artistic family. And my heart is with our international family all over the world right now who is fighting for their safety and their freedom. And I love you all so much. Thank you very, very much.’

Not to be outdone was Will Smith who earned Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his titular role in King Richard.

The film is a look at how tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams became who they are after the coaching from their father Richard Williams.

The 53-year-old actor Smith was up against: Javier Bardem (‘Being the Ricardos’), Benedict Cumberbatch (‘The Power of the Dog’), Andrew Garfield (‘Tick, Tick 
 Boom!’), and Denzel Washington (‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’).

Veteran entertainer Smith – who has had a career spanning nearly four decades – said this is one of the greatest moments of his career as he was seated next to tennis great and daughter of the real-life man he played Venus Williams.

He explained: ‘Thank you all. That may have been one of the greatest moments of my career just now. Because my name was called for “King Richard” sitting next to Venus Williams. And her sister. Richard Williams is a dreamer like no one you’ve ever known.

‘He has a power of belief that borders on insanity. And sometimes tips over the border, which is absolutely necessary to take something from impossible to possible. You pushed every single day. You demanded authenticity, and you did it in such a beautiful and quiet and powerful way. And you did it wonderful justice.’

A hilarious moment came when Smith thanked the Williams family for signing onto the project despite reservation.

The Philadelphia-native said: ‘Venus, Serena, the Williams family, you entrusted me and our group with your story. You didn’t agree to put your name on it until you saw the final project. I get that. I get that. It’s cool. That’s real, that’s real, because we be messing stuff up sometimes. But when I got the call and you watched the movie and you said you loved it, I just want to say thank you very much. It was my deepest pleasure to honor your family and to tell your story to the world. Thank you all. I’m thanking to much. Thank you all. Thank you.’

The most emotional moment when Smith got tearful when talking about the young actors who played Venus and Serena – Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton – and how ‘parenting’ them at the event was a complete honor for him personally and professionally.

A tear could be seen on the talented actor’s face as he said: ‘You guys [Sidney and Singleton] are actors, so you know how sometimes your on-screen characters kind of bleed into real life. And to walk you around this room tonight to parent you on this film, to deliver you into this business has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life.’

Perhaps the most shocking upset of the night came when CODA made history becoming the first ever ensemble to win top prize Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

The film beat out heavy competition including favorite Belfast, Don’t Look Up, House of Gucci, and King Richard.

The critically-acclaimed movie is centered around a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) named Ruby (played by Emilia Jones) who is the only hearing person in her deaf family. When the family’s fishing business is threatened, Ruby finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music by wanting to go to Berklee College of Music and her fear of abandoning her parents.

Veteran actress Marlee Matlin – who won Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Academy Awards in 1987 for Children Of A Lesser God – took to the podium to accept the honor on behalf of the cast as she said via interpreter: ‘It’s a night that I’ve been waiting for for 35 years.

‘It has been time and this just validates, among those people who voted for us at SAG-AFTRA, they knew we are their peers, their equals. We are all actors and this [recognition] to really give more opportunities for other actors out there, who or whatever they may be.’

Earlier in the night Troy Kotsur made history as the 53-year-old actor was the first ever deaf actor to win an individual honor at the SAG Awards as he took home the first award in the Male Actor in a Supporting Role category for his work in the film.

In the film the talented actor played Frank Rossi, the father of the main character of the film Ruby.

He beat out A-list competition including Ben Affleck (‘The Tender Bar’), Bradley Cooper (‘Licorice Pizza’) , Jared Leto (‘House of Gucci’), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (‘The Power of the Dog’).

Coming into the event Kotsur already made history as he was also the first solo deaf actor to receive an individual SAG Award nomination on top of winning it.

The award was presented by Scenes From A Marriage co-stars Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac and the Meza, Arizona native was emotional as he covered his face when his name was announced.

Kotsur was grateful to be part of the Screen Actors Guild as he opened his speech by saying, via interpreter: ‘Wow! Wow! Thank you so much to all the members of SAG. I am so proud to be a member. I’ve been a member since 2001, and so now I feel like I’m finally part of the family. And I know you all are artists, and I know what you all know what it’s like to be a starving actor.

‘Back then I used to sleep in my car. I slept in my dressing room backstage. I couch surfed, and all of that, you feel me, right? And so thank you so much. I’m so grateful to SAG to protect us actors.’

Netflix’s Squid Game once again made its mark as Jung Ho-yeon and Lee Jung-Jae earned Outstanding Performance by a Female and Male Actor in a Drama Series, respectively, at the star-studded event.
