The Winners at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2012 — ‘The Help’ Scoops Four Gongs!

So you’ve had a gander at our gallery of gowns from the Screen Actors Guild Awards – but who won what?

Despite the Oscars buzz surrounding ‘The Artist’,  it was ‘The Help’ who scooped most of the gongs last night. Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen, Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein, as well as the rest of 'The Help' crew, took to the stage to pick up the Outstanding Performance by a Cast award, Viola Davis won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor for her brilliant turn in the film while another of the film's stars, Octavia Spencer, was named Best Supporting Actress. Bravo one and all! Octavia struggled to lift the statute as she accepted her award, saying: "Oh, wow I need to work out a little more. That guy’s heavy." We hope her mantel piece can handle it.

Following her win at the Golden Globes, Kate Winslet was honoured for her title role in ‘Mildred Pierce’. Sadly, we weren’t treated to another emotional acceptable speech from the actress — Kate couldn’t make the ceremony, boo — but Glenn Close accepted the award on her behalf.

And a big cheer for Harry Potter too! The final instalment of the blockbuster series, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’, won best big-screen stunt. Will they clinch Oscar glory?

Just like the Golden Globes, the SAGs is a good indicator of who’ll take home a golden statuette come Oscars night in a couple of weeks. So study the full list of winners below, because it's time to take note.
