Alexander Skarsgård Self-Deprecatingly Accepts SAG Award: 'Yeah, That Makes Sense'
Alexander Skarsgård is the winner for outstanding performance by a male actor in a television movie or limited series.
On Sunday night at the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, the star earned his first-ever acting trophy for his performance in Big Little Lies. Taking the stage to accept the award, Skarsgård said he was “shocked” and “humbled” “embarrassed” and “infinitely grateful.”
The actor — who played Perry Wright, the abusive husband of Nicole Kidman‘s Celeste Wright — also used the opportunity to joke, saying sarcastically, “Yeah, that makes sense.”
