LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tommy Lee Jones has won the supporting-actor prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards for his role as an abolitionist firebrand in the Civil War epic "Lincoln."

Jones was not at the show, but the win boosts his prospects to become a two-time Academy Award winner, since the guild honors are a good forecast for who will go on to claim an Oscar. Jones previously won a supporting-actor Oscar for "The Fugitive."

Earlier, the James Bond adventure "Skyfall" and the fantasy series "Game of Thrones" picked up prizes for best stunt work, honors announced on the red carpet before the official SAG Awards ceremony.

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.
