2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards - Live Blog
The 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are going down tonight live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. I plead ignorance on a lot of the TV stuff (sorry Dan and Alan), but on the movies side, there is a lot of intrigue. After last night's Producers Guild victory for "Birdman," and with the film being a favorite to take the ensemble and lead actor prizes tonight, everyone is wondering if Alejandro González Iñárritu's film will come out of this weekend looking BOSS. We'll know in due time.
For now, if you have the stomach for me, follow along with our live blog of the ceremony below. We'll obviously note winners along the way, but we're keeping track of them here as well.
On to the show!
4:15 - (P.S.: I'm totally watching the Royal Rumble on my laptop at the same time, so if I accidentally write about John Cena or something, my bad. We all know that's the REAL best ensemble of the evening.)
4:25 - By the way, you can watch a live stream of the show on TNT's website.
4:26 - They're chatting with Michael Keaton on the red carpet now. He's begging off handshakes. Been suffering the flu for a while it seems. Big series of interviews with him coming next week, FYI.
4:31 - Liev Schreiber on the carpet with wife and surprise nominee Naomi Watts ("St. Vincent"). "I had so much fun and the fact that it's being celebrated makes me feel brave enough to keep looking for comedic work," she says of "Birdman's" success.
4:38 - Adrien Brody chatting it up re: his work in "Houdini," as well as Wes Anderson and "The Grand Budapest Hotel." It's very possible the film snags that ensemble prize tonight and sends the season into an even. And then Maggie Gyllenhaal interview bombs!
4:47 - Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Debbie Reynolds isn't walking the red carpet, alas. So here's this:
4:50 - By the way, the Stunt Ensemble awards have been announced. Congratulations to "Game of Thrones" and "Unbroken." Apologies for not being important enough, apparently, to be televised.
4:57 - Lots of Aniston chatter. "Red carpet body" and such. Let's get to this show...
5:04 - I would have said Jennifer Aniston wins the "I'm an actor" bit but then Zach G. stole her thunder.
5:07 - First award of the night is Female Actor in a Comedy Series. And the Actor goes to... Uzo Aduba for "Orange is the New Black." Pretty lovely moment for her given that she just got finished telling us she got her SAG card for this show. Off to the races.
5:12 - Moving right along, Male Actor in a Comedy Series is up next. And the Actor goes to... William H. Macy for "Shameless." It's his first trip back to the SAG stage in over a decade. I confess, I don't watch this show. There's too much (good) TV out there to keep up. But who doesn't like seeing Bill Macy get some hardware. "I've written so many great acceptance speeches that I never got to give," he says. "To my fellow nominees...oh forget it. You lost." Nice shout out to his co-stars. "I'm not sure why you're not nominated."
5:17 - Oh, that's right. They get the comedy categories over with quickly don't they? On to Ensemble in a Comedy Series. And the Actor goes to... The Cast of "Orange is the New Black." Cruising lately. And I think we're all just happy to see "Modern Family" bow out for a change. And also, how awesome that the stage was just PACKED with women for that victory.
Keep the fun going on the next page...
