Don’t miss Orioles players, John Means & Paul Fry, as they guest host at our Brews and O’s event!

"Hidden Figures," "Stranger Things" and "Orange Is the New Black" took home the top ensemble prizes at the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards. While the event was a celebration of actors and their craft, the current political climate was not far from the minds of many stars on the red carpet and on the stage. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mahershala Ali, Bryan Cranston, David Harbour and others used their time at the podium to address recent events and the policies of President Donald Trump.

Read (and watch) Julia Louis-Dreyfus' speech slamming the #MuslimBan

"I want you all to know that I am the daughter of an immigrant. My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, and I’m an American patriot, and I love this country, and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes,” she said in her acceptance speech. “This immigrant ban is a blemish and it is un-American.

"So I say to you this: Our sister guild, the WGA, made a statement today that I would like to read because I am in complete agreeance with it.

“ 'Our guilds are unions of storytellers who always welcomed those from the nations of varying beliefs who wish to share their creativity with America. We are grateful for them. We stand with them. And we will fight for them.'

"Thank you very much."
