Saoirse Ronan has lost out to Frances McDormand in the Best Actress category at the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) in Hollywood.

McDormand won for her role in Martin McDonagh's 'Three Billboards Ouside Ebbing Missouri', which took home three awards in total.

On the TV side, HBO's Big Little Lies picked up best actor in a miniseries wins for both Alexander Skarsgard and Nicole Kidman.

"I'm so grateful today that our careers can go beyond 40-years-old," Kidman said in her acceptance speech.

"We are potent and powerful and viable. I just beg that the industry stays behind us because our stories are finally being told."

The Crown's Claire Foy won best female actor in a drama series for her portrayal of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II.

Morgan Freeman was handed the Lifetime achievement award and made a joke about the green statuette's gender.

"I'm gonna tell you what's wrong with this statue," he said.

"From the back it works, from the front it's gender specific. Maybe I started something."

A host of Hollywood stars were hailed at the awards for breaking the silence surrounding sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Rosanna Arquette, who was one of the actresses to allege she was harassed by Harvey Weinstein, was applauded on stage as she presented an award, accompanied by Marisa Tomei.

The Oscar-winner told Arquette: "You are one of the silence breakers and we all owe you a debt of gratitude."

The pair also paid tribute to other accusers - including Asia Argento, Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino - who also made allegations against Weinstein; Anthony Rapp, who alleged he was harassed by Kevin Spacey; and Olivia Munn, who made allegations against Brett Ratner.
