SAG Awards: Ali Wong and Steven Yeun take comedy accolades

Ali Wong hopes her career has "all worked out" after she won her first Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award on Saturday (24.02.24).
The 41-year-old actress scooped the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series accolade for her work on 'Beef' ahead of
Uzo Aduba ('Painkiller'), Kathryn Hahn ('Tiny Beautiful Things'), Brie Larson ('Lessons in Chemistry') and Bel Powley ('A Small Light') and gave a shout-out to her beloved mother, who was watching from the audience.
She said: "I have to of course thank Sonny and Steven and Jake and the rest of the cast and crew of 'Beef'. I wanna thank Netflix so much for all of your support, starting with my very first stand-up special in 2016. Thank you for always believing in me and that I can do anything.
"Lastly, I want to thank my 83-year-old mother who's here tonight in her pearls and her Tevas because she doesn't give a f***. I know it was really hard when I told you I wanted to do stand-up comedy and I hope it's all worked out."
Ali's win was followed by her co-star Steven Yeun taking the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series
He told the audience at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium: "I have to thank Sonny, Ali, Jake, thank you for going on this ride, for building this thing. Thank you to Netflix and 24.
Thank you to my lovely wife and my family. Thank you to my mom and dad who didn't say no hard enough to have me stop doing this.
"I was reminded outside about the first job I had that got me my SAG card and it was being in a vat of fake caramel wriggling around in a Speedo for a Milky Way commercial and I felt just as hyped to get that card then as I am to receive this here now.
"I'm very honoured to be here in this room, I'm very honoured to be nominated with these incredible artists.
I want to thank finally my incredible acting coach and dear friend Deborah Quiller. Whenever we work on something I'm like 'no, it's this specific Korean thing I'm talking about and god bless her she was like, 'No honey, that's what we all go through'."
