Playing 9 Times Idris Elba Stole Our Hearts at the 2016 SAG Awards

Idris Elba had a good night on Saturday.

The 43-year-old star walked away with two trophies and our hearts at the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards, where he was recognized for his roles in BBC America's Luther and Netflix's Beasts of No Nation. But it's not just his acting chops that had us all hot and bothered -- the British actor reaffirmed his heartthrob status (as if we ever doubted it!) in nine simple steps.
