It's The Actors Night To Party At The Screen Actors Guild Awards

Hollywood’s top talent came out on Saturday night for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, which recognize outstanding acting performances in movies and television. The night was filled with many hilarious moments including a montage of actors touching the SAG award (which looks like a naked man), Matthew McConaughey talking about going to Neptune, celebrities discussing what it’s like to be an actor, and even a double entendre filled acceptance speech from Michael Douglas. But, there were also heartfelt serious moments like the “In Memoriam” montage (which included greats like Peter O’Toole and James Galdolfini), Rita Moreno’s acceptance of the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award, and SAG President, Ken Howard, talking about a $100 million donation to the organization that will be used to fund SAG’s Literacy for Children program, among others. One of the most heartfelt moments of the evening was during Jared Leto’s acceptance speech when he said, “I’d like to dedicate this very special... honor to all of the people who have lost their lives as a result of this dreadful disease. To the people out there around the world who are living with HIV/AIDS… The people who made a choice to live their lives not as others would have them live it, but as they have chosen to dream it. I’m so proud to have been able to glimpse the world through your eyes.”

If the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards are indicators of who will take home the gold statue on Oscar night, then Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, and Jared Leto should feel very confident. McConaughey took home his 9th and Jared Leto his 18th award for their work in Dallas Buyers Club.  Cate Blanchett won for Female Actor in a Leading Role for her performance in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. While Jennifer Lawrence won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress, it was Lupita Nyong’o who took home the Actor at the SAG awards for her performance in 12 Years a Slave. However, it was American Hustle that won Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Dame Maggie Smith won Best Female Actor in Drama Series for her work on Downton Abbey. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won for her performance as the incompetent but hilarious Vice President in Veep. Two acting veterans took home statues this evening: Michael Douglas for his performance as opera singer Liberace in Behind the Candelabra, and Helen Mirren for her performance as Phil Spector’s significant other in Phil Spector. The 50th SAG Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to actress, Rita Moreno. Moreno is one of eleven people to belong to EGOT group – those who have won the big four awards: an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Moreno is most well known for her work in the 1961 musical West Side Story as Anita (where she won her Oscar). She won Emmys for her appearances on The Muppet Show and The Rockford Files in 1977 and 1978 respectively. In 1972 she won her Grammy for The Electric Company Album and in 1975 she won the Tony for The Ritz. Moreno took the stage looking stunning, and sung, “As I approach the prime of my life, I find I have the time of my life.”
