Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Michelle Williams just matched Sarah Paulson’s TV grand slam sweep with their SAG Awards wins

Break out the brooms because Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Michelle Williams just completed a very tough sweep. With their Screen Actors Guild Awards wins Sunday for “Fleabag” and “Fosse/Verdon,” respectively, the actresses are now the second and third people to have won all five major TV acting awards in a single season.

The first to do so was Sarah Paulson, who claimed the Television Critics Association, Emmy, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards in 2016-17 for her turn as Marcia Clark on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Like Paulson, Waller-Bridge and Williams also started their runs at the TCA Awards in August, where they were honored with their respective Individual Achievement in Comedy and Drama prizes — both gender-neutral categories.

In September, Williams won her first Emmy, taking Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress for her incandescent performance as Gwen Verdon.
