Glenn Powell is starting the Screen Actors Guild Awards off in style — with bubbly!

The Hidden Figures star joined Vitalie Taittinger, Global Spokesperson and Artistic Director for Champagne Taittinger, in a champagne toast as the red carpet opened on Sunday.

“This is my first time doing the champagne toast or to actually be invited to the SAG Awards,” he told Deputy Editor JD Heyman on PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly’s official live pre-show.

“Are you supposed to chug champagne?” Powell joked as he held his glass.

Taittinger’s Brut La Française bubbly will be served at the SAG Awards and at PEOPLE and the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s post-awards gala, and Taittinger has launched a new initiative with the SAG AFTRA Foundation to raise funds for its Emergency Assistance program.

Powell is also attending the ceremony as a nominee for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Other Hidden Figures stars nominated are Mahershala Ali, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Taraji P. Henson, Aldis Hodge, Janelle Monáe, Jim Parsons and Octavia Spencer.

And to help him celebrate the big night, the actor brought his entire family along with him to the show.

“I roll deep,” he said. “This entourage rolls deep.”

The 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will air live on Sun., Jan. 29, 2017 at 8 p.m. ET. on TNT and TBS.
