Summary List Placement
The 27th annual SAG Awards aired on Sunday evening, and some viewers at home got a kick out of one actor’s video-call location. The prerecorded hour-long ceremony was comprised of footage captured on various actors’ home computer set-ups, but “The Queen’s Gambit” costar Bill Camp was spotted sitting in a car.
Camp, who played Mr. Shaibel in the Netflix drama, was nominated for best performance by a male actor in a TV movie or limited series. Mark Ruffalo (who starred in HBO’s drama “I Know This Much is True”) won the award in that category, and Camp applauded him with a huge smile on his face from what looked like the front seat of a sedan.
His location stood out in contrast to the fancy hotels and homes most other actors appeared to be calling in from.
People on Twitter praised Camp for the casual move, which felt relatable to many after a year of virtual meetings and events in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
