SAG Awards: Claire Danes wins for 'Temple Grandin'

January 30, 2011 |  6:30 pm

SAG Claire Danes Claire Danes won the Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday for outstanding performance by a female actor in a TV movie or miniseries for her role in "Temple Grandin."

It also marked a triple crown for Danes: She won the Emmy and Golden Globe for the HBO movie about an autistic woman who overcomes adversity. Danes was competing against Catherine O'Hara and Julia Ormand, also in "Temple Grandin," Winona Ryder in "When Love is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story" and Susan Sarandon for "You Don't Know Jack."

The awards — which dole out honors in both TV and film — are being held at the Shrine Exhibition Hall and telecast live simultaneously on TNT and TBS. A win in the feature film categories is especially coveted: It can be a precurser to Oscar gold. We'll carry all the breaking news and headlines here on Awards Tracker.
