The SAG Awards made me so happy last night because not only did Uzo Aduba win for Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Comedy Series, but Orange is the New Black won for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series!! Ahhhhh, I was so happy I could barely contain myself. Actually, I really didn’t contain myself! I had a mini freak out when I heard they won!!
The movie categories went as I expected with the majority of the winners being the same as they were at the Golden Globes. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, it just makes it less exciting in my opinion. I really want to try and see as many of the Oscar nominated movies as I can. So far, I haven’t seen any, but once I finish this post I’m going to watch Boyhood. In the next few weeks, virtually every other nominated movie will be released at Redbox so I’ll have a lot of watching to do!!
As for the red carpet, I was highly impressed. I was watching the E! red carpet and I was really missing Giuliana Rancic. Maria Menounos was fine, but it really bothered me that she kept asking, “What are you wearing?” The proper answer to that question would be a dress, or a suit. If she wanted to know the designer, she needed to ask, “Who are you wearing?” There were a few other awkward moments and I felt she took the compliments slightly too far, but other than that I enjoyed the coverage.
I loved that so many women opted for color. Sofia Vergara stunned in red. Sophia Bush wore an orange Vivienne Westwood gown. Uzo Aduba wore yellow. Julianne Moore looked gorgeous in green Givenchy. Julianna Marguilies donned blue. And Keira Knightley was a beautiful mommy-to-be in purple. It was the perfect array of rainbow hues!
Did you see how colorful the stage was when the cast of Orange is the New Black accepted their award for Outstanding Ensemble?!!
