LOS ANGELES – The James Bond adventure “Skyfall” and the fantasy TV series “Game of Thrones” have picked up prizes for best stunt work from the Screen Actors Guild.

The stunt honors were announced Sunday on the red carpet before the official SAG Awards ceremony, as stars were gathering for their guild’s big night.

JoBeth Williams and Scott Bakula announced the winners, noting the value of stunt players, who often are overlooked for their contributions to film and television.

Bakula said stunt workers keep actors healthy, alive and working.

The SAG honors are the latest show in a puzzling Academy Awards season in which Hollywood’s top prize, the best-picture Oscar, looks up for grabs among several key nominees.
