SAG Awards: Steve Buscemi wins for male actor in TV drama series
Steve Buscemi won the SAG Award for male actor in a drama series for his role in HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire.” Buscemi plays Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, a politician modeled after real-life mob boss Enoch Johnson, who ruled Atlantic City during the Prohibition era.
Buscemi beat out Patrick J. Adams in USA’s “Suits,” Kyle Chandler in DirecTV’s “Friday Night Lights,” Bryan Cranston in AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and Michael C. Hall in Showtime’s “Dexter.”
This is Buscemi’s second consecutive win in this category for his role in “Boardwalk Empire.” Buscemi also won as part of the “Boardwalk Empire” cast at last year’s awards for ensemble in a drama series.
The 18th Screen Actors Guild Awards show was broadcast nationwide by TNT and TBS from the Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles.
