Alexander Skarsgard Roasts Himself During SAG Awards 2018 Speech (Video)

Alexander Skarsgard accepts his trophy on stage at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (January 21) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old actor won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie for his work on Big Little Lies.

Alex roasted himself during his acceptance speech. “Yeah, that makes sense,” he said while starting his speech. “A lot of people have been talking about who the greatest male actor ever is. Is it [fellow nominee] Mr. Robert De Niro? Or the tall dude from True Blood? The thespians have spoken. Thank you very much for that!”

Alex‘s on-screen wife Nicole Kidman also won at the event, marking her first-ever SAG Award win after 10 nominations.

FYI: Alex is wearing a BOSS tuxedo, Tod’s shoes, as well as a Bvlgari watch and cufflinks.

    First time (Emmy’s) I took it as he was just nervous and excited. Second time (Golden Globes) I took it as he was remembering who he forgot at the Emmy’s but a 3rd time? How the heck do you play a monster get all these awards for playing said monster and not ONCE do you mention the women (and even men) facing domestic abuse? Not once. It also seemed almost as if there was no effort in that speech.

  • Maria M.

    He’s just an actor not an activist. It’s not his job to talk about anything other than acting and films. It’s also called modesty.

  • fun and flirty86

    First of all he claims to be for equality and a feminist. That would have been a perfect time to prove it. I Don’t give a crap if he is just an “actor” You play that type of a character you say SOMETHING. Especially after winning that many awards for playing such a horrible person. That’s not being modest that’s being complacent. His other speeches had tons more effort but still “modest”.

  • Maria M.

    I don’t think these people need to prove anything to the public except that they can act. I don’t think actors have any responsibility to address social issues just because their films deal with certain issues and topics. Director and producers can address it if they wish. Actor’s job is finished after they wrap. Every normal person supports equality but I don’t remember he said that he’s a feminist.

  • fun and flirty86

    I don’t care what you think. That is why before posting my comment I didn’t check with you. No one said it was his “responsibility” but if you are going to talk like you are for equality you should speak on the injustices that are happening. Especially after you just gained all sorts of recognition for playing not the victim but the damn perpetrator. It’s funny how all of his costars managed to do that. Oh ok cool I wasn’t aware because YOU don’t remember him saying he was a feminist means he isn’t. He said in an interview if feminism is for equality he is all for it and then added that he thinks everyone should be. All of your comments on other pages proves 100% that you’re all about victim blaming which is exactly why you don’t see the problem with this.

  • BMay

    Ugggh so disappointing. This was probably one of his worst speeches. His other acceptance speeches were very quirky and humble. This one I don’t know what happened.

  • NocturnalAnimal

    I couldnt agree more with you on that! but again, you shall always remember the Scandi hypocrite is all PR and nothing more. He’s a fake with no dignity whatsoever. You should not pay attention to what he says, it’s bullishit all the time. He’s a fake

  • Lala

  • Dominique

    Alexander is a truly talented believable actor. So happy for him.

  • Maria M.

    You don’t get it, don’t you? Every normal person supports equality between men and women or in Emma Stone’s words from Battle of the Sexes “Your father is not better than you mother” but no thinking person can support modern feminism. Modern feminists believe that women are incapable of lying and manipulation which is the very definition of sexism. Women are capable of everything men are capable of. They don’t think prostitution and jobs in porn industry are humiliating for women. They call it sex positivity. FYI, victim blaming only applies when someone is PROVEN to be a victim of a CRIME not when someone self-describes as a victim or self-defines a crime like in Aziz Ansari’s case. Crime is not arbitrary, there are legal definitions of what assault is. Modern feminist reject capitalism and believe that Jessica Chastain should make as much as Brad Pitt if they are starring in the same film although she started yesterday and doesn’t have 5% of his total box office. None of his male costars will get the same fee but she should because she’s a woman and can call out chauvinist producers later for injustice. But most importantly, no rational person can support modern feminism anymore because of radicalized people like you who will consider someone male chauvinist pig for not giving the award speech YOU would give. People are not men and women, they are human beings and I don’t owe any solidarity to trash like Lindsay Lohan and Mel B just because we have shared biological characteristic just like I don’t sympathize with white people more than with other races just because I’m white. You see, I am a real feminist, second wave feminist and you are just a sexist scum because that’s what third wave feminism really is.

  • fun and flirty86

    This is so very true. Always says 1 thing and then does another.

  • fun and flirty86

    Damn I didn’t even barely read any of that drivel. So you wasted all of your time on something. Read about 5 lines and stopped. No thanks. My original comment still stands. He should have said SOMETHING. Even articles on the internet are saying the same thing. I am so glad people on Twitter are calling him out too. A lot of his fans as well. Like I am going to worry an anti feminist didn’t like that I called him out ? I think the heck not lol.

  • Maria M.

    I am not surprised. Sexist, Nazi losers like you are not interested in debate, only in lynching those who disagree.

  • fun and flirty86

    This wasn’t a debate! I even very clearly stated I don’t care what you think. For some reason you keep thinking I do. “Lynching those who disagree”. That’s ALL you. I was the original commenter. You are on MY comment. You disagreed with MY comment. Not the other way around. Alex doesn’t disagree with me. He has spoken out on things like this before. THAT is precisely why I made my comment. He should be speaking out about these issues NOW. Especially after he has benefited from it. He should have said something period. So glad your opinion is in the minority.
