David Harbour who plays Chief of Police Jim Hopper on the 80’s era show Stranger Things, gave a powerful, funny and inspiring speech as he accepted the Screen Actors Guild awards on behalf of the cast of Stranger Things.

“We are united, in that we are all human beings and we are all together on this horrible, painful, joyous, exciting, and mysterious ride that is being alive. Now, as we act in the continuing narrative of Stranger Things, we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies!”, announced Harbour.

Equally as entertaining were the expressions coming from Winona Ryder as Harbour was giving his impassioned speech.  She seemed a little surprised at first but her face eventually mimicked his voice as he was talking.  Her expressions told a thousand words.  Ryder and her co-star Millie Bobby Brown were both nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor.

The cast of Hidden Figures won Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.  The incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson played by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe was about three African-American women working at NASA, who were the brains behind one of the greatest events on history.

Dolly Parton came on to the stage greeted with a standing ovation.  The actress well known for her singing and her performance on the movie 9 to 5 presented Lily Tomlin with a life time achievement award. The cast of Orange Is the New Black won for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.  Brian Cranston won for his role as Lyndon B. Johnson on Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries.  Emma Stone won an award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her role on La La Land
