On Sunday, Song Kang-ho, Park So-dam, Choi Woo-shik, Lee Jung-eun and Lee Sun-kyun stood onstage to address their critically acclaimed South Korean film about a poor family sneakily embedding with a wealthy one.
The Bong Joon-ho feature was nominated for the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
After the cast walked out, the entire audience of their fellow actors rose to its feet.

The excitement in the room overflowed to Twitter, where people had much to say.
