Matthew McConaughey wins at SAG Awards

Matthew McConaughey helped 'Dallas Buyers Club' win big at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards last night (01.18.14).

The star picked up the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his role as AIDs patient Ron Woodroof in the biographical drama, and he told people to "just keep living" in his acceptance speech.

He said: "There's a man I met 20 years ago. He escaped Russia. He was not even a carpenter, built a 17-foot boat and sailed across the Atlantic for decades he held the world record for smallest vessel single-man sailed across the Atlantic.

"He told me this, he said, 'A genius can be anybody he wants to, but a genius is always one person at a time.' So to that I say, that's what we get to do, isn't it?

"One man, one woman, one human. At a time. When we do it well. Just keep doing that. Just keep living."

Matthew's co-star Jared Leto also picked up an award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role thanks to his performance in the movie.
