Depp Receives Best Actor Screen Actor's Guild Award

The Screen Actors Guild awards took place tonight, when the cream of Hollywood acting talent got to celebrate their own. These awards are particularly important for the stars, as they are voted by their fellow thespians. In one of the ceremony’s biggest – and most welcome – surprises, Johnny Depp (who did not attend the awards), received the award for Best Actor, for his portrayal of jittery buccaneer Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl. The Ensemble Acting award, the Guild’s equivalent of a Best Picture prize, went to The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King, the front-runner to win the top honor at next Sunday’s Oscars.
