Jaimie Foxx and Hilary swank headed the winners taking best actor and actress gongs, respectively.

Foxx won the award for his role in “Ray”, where he played Ray Charles. On accepting his award he said “Thank you, for Ray Charles, for just living so complex and so interested in making us just come together as everybody.

“I watch – I tell you this story, I was in D.C., and it was for the Black Caucus, and we screened this film. And a young black kid stood up, and he had a jersey on, and he had his bling-bling on, and everybody was wondering, “What is this kid gonna say,” ’cause it was like the question and answering.”

“And he said, “Foxx, do you think this might like give you a nom, or somethin’ like that?” And he said, “a nom,” and he was talking about the Oscar nom, or Screen Actors Guild, and it was beautiful to see the education that’s going on with this film, because everybody’s getting on board with this. So, thank you for that.”

Swank picked up her awards for here role in “Million Dollar Baby” which tells the story of a woman struggling to break into professional boxing; it also touches on some controversial subjects.

She thanked director and co-star Clint Eastwood: “You know, I also can’t believe I’m a working actor, working with the legendary Clint Eastwood, and the always amazing Morgan Freeman. I think one of the rarest qualities, and most important qualities is the – being able to believe in someone else. And Clint, your unwavering belief in me, I am just so thankful for that. I am thankful to you for reminding me to trust my instincts, and allowing me to trust my instincts.”
