Screen Actors Guild Awards: Cutest hat rack ever

I didn’t watch all of the 14th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards broadcast last night. Actually, I forgot it was on. I guess I find it difficult to get excited about movies like There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men — which, as Jamie recently pointed out, might as well be called No Movie for Women at All.

But I think I caught the best moments anyway. First, Tina Fey won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.

She was self-effacing and adorable as usual. Here’s her acceptance speech, in which she calls herself the “hat rack” to Alec Baldwin‘s Fred Astaire:




Ruby Dee won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role (American Gangster). Simply dee-lightful. And a bit of a surprise, I think, though fully deserved.

The Office won for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

And what a crazy category that was! Ugly Betty, 30 Rock and The Office — how could anyone choose?

Finally, Julie Christie, who won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for Away From Her, is stunning and graceful and perfect. The End.

Here’s her acceptance speech:

The funniest moment (of what I saw of the show) had to be Mickey Rooney referring to Queen Latifah as “Miss Latifah.” She won for
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Life Support, but wasn’t there to accept. No matter how many times Mickey called her “Miss.”
