Pedro Pascal Earns First-Ever SAG Awards Win for “The Last of Us”

Pedro Pascal has broken the succession plan…

The 48-year-old Chilean actor has claimed his first-ever SAG Award, breaking the winning streak of Succession’s Kieran Culkin.

Pedro PascalPascal took home the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series award for his performance in HBO‘s The Last of Us during Sunday’s SAG Awards. This awards season, Culkin had previously beat out Pascal at the Primetime Emmys and Golden Globes.

“This is wrong, for a number of reasons. Umm, I’m a little drunk. I thought I could get drunk,” he said on stage while accepting the award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series for his role in “The Last of Us.”

“Uh, geez Louise, I’m making a fool of myself. But thank you so much for this!” he emotionally exclaimed.

The Narcos actor called the award an “incredible f–king honor” and he intended to thank his fellow nominees, but he could “not remember any of your names right now.”

Pascal began to thank his family who “may be watching” at home, but he briefly paused when his voice cracked and he began to get even more emotional.

“I’m going to have a panic attack, and I’m going to leave,” he concluded before walking off the stage amid the crowd applause.

Meanwhile, Jose Cervantes Jr., Liza Colón-Zayas and Richard Esteras earned the first SAG Awards of their careers alongside their The Bear cast mates, claiming the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Cervantes stars as Angel; Colon-Zayas stars as Tina; and Esteras stars as Manny on the acclaimed series.

The 30th annual SAG Awards took place across a live streaming ceremony — the awards body’s first-ever live show to debut on Netflix‘s main platform, following a decades-long broadcast partnership with TNT and TBS that ended in 2022.

FX/Hulu Renew “The Bear,” Starring Liza Colón-Zayas, for Third Season

Liza Colón-Zayas is grin and bear-ing it!

FX/Hulu have ordered a third season of their acclaimed restaurant drama series The Bear, starring the 51-year-old Puerto Rican actress and playwright.

Liza Colón-Zayas,The series, which was created by Christopher Storer, stars Jeremy Allen White as Carmy Berzatto.

The first season of The Bear follows Carmy, a young chef from the fine-dining world who comes home to Chicago to run his family sandwich shop after his brother’s suicide. Carmy must balance the realities of small-business ownership, his strong-willed and recalcitrant kitchen staff and his strained familial relationships, all while grappling with the impact of his brother’s death.

Season two follows the gang as they transform their grimy sandwich joint into a next-level spot. As they stripped the restaurant down to its bones, the crew undertook transformational journeys of their own, each forced to confront the past and reckon with who they want to be in the future.

Unsurprisingly, it turned out the only thing harder than running a restaurant was opening a new one, and the team had to juggle the insane bureaucracy of permits and contractors with the beauty and creative agony of menu planning. The transition brought a newfound focus on hospitality as well. As the entire staff was forced to come together in new ways, pushing the boundaries of their abilities and relationships, they also learned what it means to be in service, both to diners and each other.

In addition to Storer and Colon-Zayas, who portrays Tina, the series also stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott and Lionel Boyce.

Matty Matheson was also upped for season 2, while Edwin Lee Gibson, Corey Hendrix, Oliver Platt, Jon Bernthal, José Cervantes, Richard Esteras, Carmen Christopher, Chris Witaske, Joel McHale, Jamie Lee Curtis, Gillian Jacobs, Robert Townsend, Molly Gordon, Alex Moffat, Ricky Staffieri, Mitra Jouhari and Maura Kidwell recur.

Storer executive produces alongside Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai, Josh Senior and Matheson. It is produced by FX Productions.

Season one, which premiered in June 2022, is currently nominated for 13 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series at the awards planned for January. The second season, which aired from June 2023, consisted of ten episodes, up from eight in season one. The episode order for season three has not been revealed.

The Bear, which wowed audiences in its first season only to achieve even greater heights in season two, has become a cultural phenomenon,” said Nick Grad, President, FX Entertainment. “We’re so proud to partner with Christopher Storer, Joanna Calo, Josh Senior, and the rest of the creative team, as well as the brilliant cast led by Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. What they and the crew have done is truly remarkable, and we and our partners at Hulu join fans in looking forward to the next chapter in the story of The Bear.
