Dragons, robots, queens and teens faced off in this category this year, with new series “The Crown,” “Stranger Things,” and “Westworld” nominated alongside veterans “Downton Abbey” and “Game of Thrones.” This was notably “Downton Abbey’s” last year of eligibility for the SAGs, which had previously won this category three times. But “Stranger Things,” with a cast largely composed of young unknown actors, marked this as a clear upset that indicates great things for the future of the show.

The SAG Awards were presented Sunday, January 29 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Presenters included Casey Affleck, Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Lucas Hedges, Taraji P. Henson, Brie Larson, Janelle Monáe, Viggo Mortensen and Octavia Spencer.
