SAG Awards 2016

Sorry this is a pretty late post but I can’t miss out on covering the SAG Awards! There were some pretty surprising winners that may or may not carry onto the upcoming Oscars. Also, the great diversity in the winners and nominees was fantastic, just saying!

Full list of winners here

The highlights:

  • Outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture: Spotlight, called that and I’m leaning towards it for my pick for Best Picture
  • Outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant; YES! Did anyone else see that epic Leo and Kate hug?? GIF below!
  • Outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role: Brie Larson, Room; yup
  • Outstanding performance by a male actor in a supporting role: Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation; Yes I love Idris! Why was he not nominated for an Oscar?
  • Outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role: Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl; Interesting, I did not see that coming. This category is really down to anyone for the Oscar.
  • Outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series: Downton Abbey; wow second year in a row!
  • Outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series: Orange is the New Black; another win second year in a row!
  • Outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series: Kevin Spacey, House of Cards; Again, another win second year in a row!
  • Outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series: Viola Davis, How to Get Away with Murder; Wait what is this, another win second year in a row?! Many repeated winners!
  • Outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series: Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent; okay back to some new winners.
  • Outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series: Uzo Aduba, Orange is the New Black; Sike! We have another win two years in a row.

Just for fun and my own personal pleasure, here is Leo and Kate hugging after Leo won his SAG.

LEO + KATE 4EVER

Now onto the RED CARPET!

My favorites:

  • Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab

  • Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

  • Saoirse Ronan in Michael Kors; I’ve been loving her looks all award season!

  • Ellie Kemper in Peter Pilotto; I normally don’t go for prints, but I really liked this dress for some reason!

 

Not So Good

  • Brie Larson in Versace; I love Brie but not this dress.

  • Kate Mara in Valentino

  • January Jones in Schiaparelli; It just looks a little too gauzy and not put together.

Okay, that’s it for now! Our next award show will be the Oscars, but first I will put out my Oscar Predictions soon!
