The many faces of Winona Ryder at SAG Awards spark Monday meme storm

WASHINGTON — The breakout success of the Netflix sci-fi series “Stranger Things” culminated in a big upset win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday night, but a passionate acceptance speech about the current political and social climate by actor and David Harbour inspired what can only be called “the many faces of Winona Ryder” and a million memes on Monday.

Ryder, who was nominated for best actress for the drama series, is no stranger to awards, having been nominated for and winning SAG awards, Golden Globes and Oscars since the 1980s. But it was “Stranger Things,” a series about four intrepid pre-teens in the 1980s who battle monsters and mayhem in  their small Midwestern town, had put her firmly in the spotlight once again. The series won the Best Drama Ensemble award last night.
