Will Smith scooped his very first SAG Award on Sunday night for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his incredible portrayal of Richard Williams in King Richard.
In the category, Will won over fellow nominees Javier Bardem (Being the Ricardos), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Power of the Dog), Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick … Boom!) and Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of Macbeth).
During his acceptance speech, Will said winning the SAG Award was “one of the greatest moments” of his career.
That may have been one of the greatest moments of my career just now because my name was called for King Richard sitting next to Venus Williams.
Will Smith went on to say:
Richard Williams is a dreamer like no one has ever known. He has a power of belief that borders on insanity and sometimes tips over the border, which is absolutely necessary to take something from impossible to possible.

Will has already scooped a Golden Globe for King Richard.
He’s also up for BAFTA and Critics Choice awards for best actor and he’s a frontrunner for the Oscars!
