sag awards 2015 winnersIt's time for the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards -- the only awards show to exclusively honor TV and film performers. 'Cause who else is going to give these poor unrecognized souls the attention they deserve?

Some big names were up for major awards Sunday night (January 25), from Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Ruffalo - who were nominated in both TV and film categories, not that they showed up - to Jennifer Aniston, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, and the casts of "Game of Thrones," "Downton Abbey," "Homeland," etc. It's kind of like the Golden Globes, if the Golden Globes just focused on the pretty people and left out the lesser-known and potentially less attractive producers/directors/writers.

SAG Awards 2015 aired live from 8 to 10 p.m. ET on TBS and TNT. Unlike most awards shows, it actually ended slightly early. (Is that what happens when no one hosts?) Here is the full list of winners, and the nominees who almost won:
