2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards

18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Tonight was the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony. The SAG awards are my absolute FAVORITE! I’ve always said that I would love winning a SAG award even more than winning an Academy Award. Mostly, because I know how much actors are pompous assh*les and if they can pause their own ego for a minute to pump up my ego and recognize me as being awesome, that’s an honor.

Most years, I spend the entire opening crying melodramatically, touched by actor’s story that always ends with “… and I’m an actor.”, dramatically saying through my sobs “I’m an actor!”. But this year… no tears. I was sadistically looking forward to it too! I don’t know if it was the actors who were chosen to speak or maybe their stories just sucked (none of them particularly stand out to me even now writing this) regardless, I wasn’t touched god damnit.

But my favorite part of every award show is, of course, as you know, the red carpet fashions. So let’s get to it.

My Personal Favorites:

Emma Stone - Alexander McQueen

I absolutely love Emma Stone and every time she shows up on a red carpet she looks absolutely amazing! This look is no different. And look at the handbag!!! She looks age appropriate and totally classic all at the same time.

Jayma Mays - Reem Acra

Jayma Mays was on A LOT of Worst Dressed lists but I think she looks adorable! The simple and cute ponytail and the beautiful detail on the back…it’s all beautiful!

Michelle Williams - Valentino

I love Michelle Williams more and more every time I see her. I thought she looked fabulous tonight!

Diane Lane (& Josh Brolin)

I loved everything about Diane Lane‘s look tonight. The color is beautiful and another woman who rocked a ponytail tonight!

Best Dressed

Jennifer Carpenter, Emily Blunt, Zoe Saldana, Viola Davis

Jennifer Carpenter looked gorg in Emilio Pucci. Emily Blunt, who is listed on a lot of worst dressed lists for this one, in Oscar de la Renta. I personally think it would’ve looked way better if she still had her ginger locks. Zoe Saldana, in Givenchy, looked so crisp and original. I couldn’t decide at first whether I liked it or not but after seeing it move on her down the red carpet, I became a fan. Viola Davis looked absolutely amazing in Marchesa and it’s a good thing too because Viola was one of the night’s big winners.

Kyra Sedgwick, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, Stacy Keibler

Kyra Sedgwick usually doesn’t really appear on my personal radar during these things but she looked incredible tonight! She wore Emilio Pucci. Angelina Jolie looked great as well in Jenny Pachham. Now, I chose to place Ms.Jolie right next to Brad’s best bud, George Clooney and his current girlfriend Stacy Keibler because apparently, Angelina can’t stand Stacy. The story goes that Stacy made some public joke about how having to stare at Brad all the time wouldn’t be so bad and apparently Angelia Jolie goes nuts whenever anyone mentions how attractive Brad is or anything of that nature… if that’s true, that’s just another reason to be annoyed with Angelina Jolie… Angelina, even men say that Brad Pitt is a damn attractive man… he’s Brad Pitt. -Off Topic- Stacy Keibler was one of my favorite looks of the night and for someone so cheesy, I have to say she looks gorgeous at these events.

And now… here it comes…

Worst Dressed

Kristen Wiig

I can’t stand Kristen Wiig. I absolutely can not stand her. I would love to give her credit for once for this great gown but she paired it with this disgusting dog collar (which is quite appropriate when you check out her face. Woof.) way to ruin a good thing Kristen, as usual.

Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Ashlee Simpson

Kaley Cucoco – What, the f*ck, were you thinking? Lea Michele – Who, the f*ck, do you think you are? Ashlee Simpson – Why, the f*ck, are you here? (Great look though… but still)

Rose Byrne, Shailene Woodley, Mya Rudolph, Ellie Kemper, Emilia Clarke

Rose Byrne (in Elie Saab) – You are not Michelle Pfeiffer. This is not Scarface. I love the choice of a pants suit but this looks kind of ridiculous. Shailene Woodley (in L’Wren Scott) – You’re not in Hawaii anymore. Nor are you winning the Jimmy Buffet Lifetime Achievement Award. Mya Rudolph – You’re lucky you’re so incredibly hysterical. This isn’t a laughing matter though. You look horrid. Ellie Kemper – I LOVE this color, especially on her, but there is something about this that I absolutely hate. I don’t know, maybe I’m jumping the gun. Maybe I love this and I don’t know it yet. I’m pretty sure I hate it though. -HUGE SIDE NOTE- Apparently, John Sexy-Ass Hamm was Ellie’s high school drama teacher. … … … yeah. I can tell you that if John Hamm were my anything teacher in high school, I totally would’ve showed up to high school. Anyway… Emilia Clarke – I love parts of this dress but on the hole (I wish John Hamm would get on my hole) I don’t like it. … … … Sorry… I’m still thinking about John Hamm.

Ok, I have to get something off my chest. Every flipping time I listen to Modern Family’s Julie Bowen and Sarah Hyland speak, I cridge. Both of these women give the worst, most snotty, interviews. If they aren’t thinking it, they are definitely giving off a “I think I’m superior to all of you” vibe. Both of them just piss me off… I don’t watch the show and I’m sure it’s as amazing as everyone says it is but I also doubt that either of these people are the reason for the success or fandom. Take it easy ladies.

Sarah Hyland and Julie Bowen, afflicted with the horrible disease of bitch-face.

Ok, enough hateration. Let’s see who took home those amazing little actor awards. And this little girl’s dream, is to one day hold one of my very own.

Ginger Night on Conan

Conan O’Brien is one of my favorite Gingers! I’ve always loved his late night shows far more than anyone else’s; He’s pretty much the only one I like.

WELL: Last night, I was so happy to see not one, not two, but THREE GINGERS on the show. Of course Conan, but Seth Green and Jayma Mays were both guests! Both of whom I happen to LOVE!






Travis Barker, one of my high school, teenage-fantasy husbands, performed -which I was totally surprised and excited by. He was joined by The Transplants and others promoting his upcoming release. The album will include guests on all tracks… I’m totally getting it.

so sexy… …

(While on topic, I have to say, The Transplants are amazing. If you don’t already know, The Transplants are made up of musicians from multiple bands including Rancid (another HS favorite of mine) and The Slackers. I definitely have an affinity for super groups though…)

I wasn’t a fan of the song right away but the bass line and (of course) the drumming were amazing and by the end of the performance I was searching the web for the song. (PS, the bassist looked like he was 16… he was amazing though!)

That’s all for today; Not too much. Frank Sinatra Jr performed at the theatre last night and will be back tonight, so my thoughts have been preoccupied with job-stuff.

2011 SAG Awards

Today I had a pretty successful shopping day! I picked up a few pieces for Spring/Summer and I even looked at bathing suits. I’m still enjoying the cold weather while it lasts, but I’m also starting to get excited for some warmer weather.

and….. The Screen Actors Guild Awards were tonight!!! I absolutely love the SAG Awards! Winning a SAG award is all part of that dream of mine. A SAG Award, to me, is so much more honorable than even an Oscar. Ugh, I just die every time I watch them. The opening and all the acceptance speeches bring me to tears. It’s that passion all Actors share, and seeing it and hearing it expressed by others gets me all emotional… I’m a dork.

Here are some of the night’s winners:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series:
Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire.


Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series:
Juliana Marguilies, The Good Wife

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama:

Betty White, Hot in Cleavland

Buuuuuttttt….. Obviously the best part of Award Show Season being in full swing are all the red carpet fashions… so here goes:

Claire Danes. Winner. I love this gown!

Jayma Mays. I love how good she looks in Orange!

John Hamm. So foxy.

Julia Stiles. I love this dress. Not sure why, but I do.

Justin… I love you.

This just might be my favorite of the night! Mila Kunis.

I love that White is in!
But Rosario Dawson was one of a select few who looked fabulous in it tonight.

Amy Adams was one of the many who went white with horrible results.
I don’t know why this looks so damn bad, but it does.

No Christina! I love this, I do. And I love you.
But really? Not tonight.

I just keep trying to remind myself that next year,
January Jones won’t be invited to any of these award shows. Ugh.

Nicole! Oh, Nicole.
This picture doesn’t even look that bad. But from every other angle, this dress is bad.

It was pointed out to me that I never picked a Ginger of The Month for January. So….. I will have January’s Ginger of the Month posted tomorrow.
