“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” just took home the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Comedy Series, beating “Barry”, “Fleabag”, “The Kominsky Method”, and “Schitt’s Creek”.
Fittingly, Alex Borstein, who plays Susie Myerson, a comedian’s agent, jokes that the show wasn’t deserving of the award.
Borstein exclaimed, “I voted for ‘Fleabag’! This is really weird. This makes no sense. I don’t know what to say. I’m going to take this home and make sweet love to it under my Spanx hole. This makes no sense, ‘Fleabag’ is brilliant.”
Rachel Brosnahan, who plays a comedian and the title character, Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel, echoed Borstein’s remarks. Brosnahan also spoke about the sudden loss of their co-star Brian Tarantina, and dedicated the award to him.

A few from last night…like a proper dysfunctional family, none of us could figure out how to look at the same camera at the same time, but had a marvelous night ringing in season 3. Man oh man do I love these weirdos. Suit of dreams by the indomitable @csiriano. I can’t wait to share the season with you all!
Brosnahan said, “We had such an amazing time here with him last year, so thank you so, so much for this. This is dedicated to him.”
Tony Shalhoub, who plays Abe Weissman, Maisel’s father, also picked up a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Comedy Series, which he won last year. Shalhoub, too, dedicated his award to Tarantina.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” also stars Jane Lynch, Caroline Aaron, Michael Zegen, Marin Hinkle, Matilda Szydagis, Joel Johnstone, Kevin Pollak, Leroy McClain, Stephanie Hsu, and Marin Hinkle.
