Foxx and Swank Win Top Screen Actors Awards

Jamie Foxx, star of the movie Ray, has won the best actor award and Hilary Swank takes best actress for her role in Million Dollar Baby at the 11th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Cate Blanchett won the supporting-actress honor for her portrayal of Katherine Hepburn in The Aviator while Morgan Freeman captured the supporting-actor prize for his work on Million Dollar Baby.

Other winners at Saturday's ceremony in Los Angeles include Alias star Jennifer Garner, Tony Shaloub from the television comedy Monk, and the late Jerry Orbach who starred in the drama series Law and Order.

The cast award for best movie ensemble went to the quirky, road-trip comedy Sideways.

The Screen Actors Guild winners are among front-runners for the prestigious Oscar Awards to be presented later this month.
