Posted Monday January 26, 2009 10:28 PM GMT

It was a big night for Sean Penn, as the talented actor finally picked up that elusive Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Male in a Lead Role during last night's ceremony.

Telling how much he enjoyed his fellow nominees' work, Penn said, "I wept at every one of these guys' performances. You’re stunning."

Later bashing TV's award prognosticators, Penn added, "We know that the TV people have got their dogfight. But they’re idiots because what they don’t know is that we’re all so proud and challenged by each other."

Puffing on a cigarette, the "I Am Sam" stud later made his way over to the official SAG afterparty at the Shrine, mingling with guests including Teri Hatcher, Sir Anthony Hopkins and David Duchovny, among others.
