Mark Ruffalo was the first-ever winner of the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards and took the honor of Best Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series for his role in I Know This Much Is True.
Ruffalo received the award virtually from home, beating fellow nominees Bill Camp, Daveed Diggs, Hugh Grant and Ethan Hawke.
“Trading doesn’t happen in a vacuum,” Ruffalo said in his acceptance speech. ‘It happens between people. And in a magical place created by a director like Derek and a writer like Wally Lamb. Mental illness is a reality, and I just think it’s really important that we are honest and open about it and have no fear and no shame. ‘

Man, oh man, are you kidding me? Wow. Thank you. To all my fellow players. I wanted to thank my mom for taking me to plays and musicals in Kansas City every time they came by, be it a ghost from the opera. I want to thank my dad for taking me to movies. Took me to “Beverly Hills Cop” when I was nine years old, and I knew I wanted to be a black cop in Detroit. I’ll get there. And again, I thank my fellow castmates for making me better for just having the job again. Thanks again, great. ‘
Catherine O’Hara was the recipient of Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her performance on Schitt’s Creek.
I share this with Annie Murphy. I am flattered that anyone could believe I could be her mother. Annie is a beautiful soul, and of course to Eugene and Dan Levy, and they are great writers. Telling their stories gave me and everyone in the city from which I am currently estranged every possible opportunity to love, be loved, fool ourselves and thrive to be the best we can be. As if that wasn’t enough, now this, thank you. ‘
