A few weeks earlier, “Three Billboards” received a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. SAG voters might have picked the film because of a powerful scene, where McDormand’s character attacks a dentist named Geoffrey. The actor in that scene is Jerry Winsett, a 1974 Austin Peay State University graduate.
