SAG Awards 2014: Film and TV stars step out in Los Angeles

The "Breaking Bad" victory lap continued at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, taking honors for outstanding dramatic cast and for lead actor Bryan Cranston.
"What a way to go out in style!" Cranston said, accepting the ensemble's award at the Los Angeles ceremony Saturday.

For his indelible performance as teacher-turned-meth dealer, Cranston added his second lead actor SAG Award, to go with his recent Golden Globe win and his numerous Emmys. "Breaking Bad" memorably wrapped late year.

"We have the nicest bunch of white supremacists I have ever worked with," said Cranston, looking over his castmates. "I swear to you I would kill you all over again."

The first award of the night -- best supporting actress -- went to Lupita Nyong'o of "12 Years a Slave."

She thanked director Steve McQueen "for taking a flashlight and shining it underneath the floorboards of this nation and reminding us what it is we stand on." The Kenyan actress, who has been hailed for her red-carpet grace this awards season, recalled her celebratory phone call to her father when she got the part - her first feature film.

"'Daddy, do you know who Brad Pitt is? I'm going to be in a movie with him!'" recalled Nyong'o. "And he said, 'I don't know him personally, but I'm glad you got a job.'"

Jared Leto was honored for supporting actor for his performance in the Texas HIV drama "Dallas Buyers Club," in which he plays the gaunt transsexual Rayon. He dedicated the award to those who have died of AIDS and to "the Rayons of the world." He also thanked his mom, calling her the "hottest date in town."

One of the early TV acting honors went to Julia-Louis Dreyfus for HBO's "Veep." Upon accepting the honor the former "Seinfeld" actress had a little fun, joking that she had the wrong speech cheat sheets. "It's hard you know because it's awards season and things get confusing, much like elections," she joked.
