2013 SAG Awards

The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were presented tonight at the Shrine Exposition Center in LA. The show opened with actors speaking about their starts in acting and then by saying, "and I'm an actor." As it did last year, the cold open seems a little forced, but the salmon visible on their dinner plates looked delicious.

After seven seasons of 30 Rock, Alec Baldwin won Best Supporting Actor each year for his portrayal of Jack Donaghy. Tina Fey also won for 30 Rock and Julianne Moore presented her with the award (the Sarah Palin connection again that popped up at the Golden Globes). Fey thanked Amy Poehler and called back jokes from their stint hosting the Globes. I am sure I mentioned it last year but it continues to amuse me that the president of the SAG, Ken Howard, plays the president of Kabletown on 30 Rock. I noticed in the end credits that Scott Bakula is a producer of the awards show, maybe that is why he was in attendance last year.

The surefire wins come February 24th and Oscar night seem to be Daniel Day Lewis for Lincoln and Anne Hathaway for Les Miserables. Hathaway says the right things in her acceptance speeches but she needs to work on her delivery if she's going to win an Oscar. Argo continued to receive recognition that it is likely not to receive at the Oscars.

The fashions were fantastic tonight, much more exciting than at the Globes. The list of winners follows after the dresses.
