Kate Winslet, Tina Fey early winners at SAG

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – British actress Kate Winslet and comedian Tina Fey were early winners on Sunday at the Screen Actors Guild awards, which could produce surprises in a season dominated by "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

Winslet won the best supporting actress SAG award for her role as a German woman with a hidden Nazi past in "The Reader." Winslet won a Golden Globe earlier this month for her performance.

"Playing Hanna Schmitz was such a blessing, even though it made me completely insane," Winslet said.

Fey won best actress in a comedy for her show "30 Rock." The show also took the top TV comedy prize -- for best ensemble cast -- and co-star Alec Baldwin won best actor in a comedy.
