19th Screen Actors Guild Awards Best Dressed List   2 comments

Hey everybody! The SAG Awards just happened two hours ago, but let’s get this one over and done with. After all, this was the last time this year that both TV and movie stars are honored in the same room. As for the red carpet, there’s a lot of interesting looks this time and as always, lots of colors everywhere. Some have been recycled, some were misfits, but for the most part, here are 16 personalities who were dressed to kill that night.

You can click the photos or open it in new tab to make the photos bigger.

jaimie alexander

16. JAIMIE ALEXANDER in Marc Bouwer

Nurse Jackie’s Jaimie Alexander was sexy and classic in this black Marc Buower creation that highlights her upper body in a flirty and very interesting manner.

idina menzel

15. IDINA MENZEL

Truth be told, it’s not as if Tony winner Idina Menzel needs to impress people with her red carpet appearances. But then again, she just did her homework when she appeared in this red and pink combination that highlights her impressive figure.

jane krakowski

14. JANE KRAKOWSKI in Kaufman Franco

From one Tony winner to another, Jane Krakowski was a sight to be seen in this Kaufman Franco creation that the 30 Rock star described as orangey-sherbet. Yum!

nancy o dell

13. NANCY O’DELL

While it’s the stars that are usually the people you look forward to the most, red carpet interviewers aren’t spared from dressing the part as well. That’s just what Entertainment Tonight‘s Nancy O’Dell did when she wore this aquamarine blue with impressive bead works in it.

keirnan shipka

12. KEIRNAN SHIPKA in Oscar dela Renta

It’s probably the Mad Men effect, but Keirnan Shipka is channeling the classic look in this Oscar dela Renta dress that highlights both her youthful aura and the stylish animal in her.

lea michele

11. LEA MICHELE in Valentino

See, this is the Lea Michele that suits her better. Instead of doing all the trying hard sultry looks that she’s been doing the past few years, the Glee star looks better and more comfortable when she shows her sweetheart side such as this pink Valentino gown she’s wearing.

nina dobrev

10. NINA DOBREV in Elie Saab

Having a body built that most designers would kill to dress, The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev was rocking the part in this pink Elie Saab creation that made her look edgy but cute as well.

viola davis

09. VIOLA DAVIS in Monique Lhuillier

Last year’s Best Actress winner Viola Davis’s presence was clearly a light in the room. Thank to this Monique Lhuillier creation she sported when she presented Daniel Day Lewis the Best Actor trophy.

jessica lange

08. JESSICA LANGE in J. Mendel

Who says you can’t dress the part when you’re already in your 60s? You probably haven’t seen Best Actress nominee Jessica Lange as she strutted in this J. Mendel ensemble that appropriately made her look years younger.

amanda seyfried

07. AMANDA SEYFRIED in Zac Posen

I’ve always thought of Seyfried as a boring red carpet entity. But after nailing this blue Zac Posen creation that she donned just a few hours ago, I need some serious reconsideration.

jennifer garner

06. JENNIFER GARNER in Oscar dela Renta

Despite Jennifer Garner being just a plus one of Ben Affleck last night, she’s definitely a top notch plus one. Her golden Oscar dela Renta gown might be the lucky charm for her husband’s ensemble win.

naomi watts

05. NAOMI WATTS in Marchesa

Best Actress nominee Naomi Watts was perfect in this Marchesa outfit that she partnered with soft curls and bright lipstick. She perfectly showed the soft and tender looks that made her look every inch a star.

nicole kidman

04. NICOLE KIDMAN in Vivienne Westwood

The two time nominee tonight who was Keithless was also giving early circa 2000s fierceness in this Vivienne Westwood creation that showed a slit and her current favorite trend: see throughs. Her shorter flat hair can be a hit or miss, but she handles it just like a real movie star.

jennifer lawrence

03. JENNIFER LAWRENCE in Christian Dior

Tonight’s Best Actress winner was about to skip the ceremonies due to pneumonia. Good thing that did not happen as we would have missed the opportunity to see her rock this dark blue Christian Dior gown she wore.

marion cotillard

02. MARION COTILLARD in Dior Haute Couture

It’s such a shame that Cotillard missed the Best Actress Oscar nod, as we could have seen more of how she slay the red carpet just like how she did with this blue and white combo of this Dior Haute Couture creation. Plus point to the new short bob do also fits her perfectly.

jessica chastain

01. JESSICA CHASTAIN in Alexander McQueen

And despite her not winning Best Actress tonight, Jessica Chastain tops my list of the best dressed in this fiery red Alexander McQueen that she sported. It was simple but less is definitely more as it highlighted her youthful beauty. Incidentally, Jessica Chastain also topped my SAG best dressed list last year so maybe a three-peat next year?

That’s it! Who are your best dressed list from this year’s SAG Awards?

19th Screen Actors Guild Awards Winner Predictions   4 comments

On Sunday (Monday here in the Philippines), the whole actors guild will be handling out their picks both in movies and television at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards. The SAG is known as an influential predictor of the trends that can happen at the Oscars in the four acting categories. Also, for this awards season, the SAG will be the first among the four major guilds to give their awards. Anyway, let’s begin!

THEATRICAL MOTION PICTURES

ensemble

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
Argo
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Les Miserables
Lincoln
Silver Linings Playbook

PREDICTION: Silver Linings Playbook. The whole ensemble is being campaigned by Harvey left and right with endless Q&As with the SAG voting members. It’s a tough call and I can see anything between Argo and Lincoln to win this too, but it’s difficult to argue with the safe contender.

ALTERNATE: Argo. The cast has TV stars in it (sure fire way of getting support from the TV community, and the film is directed by an actor himself. If the whole actors guild still feels sorry for Ben, they might throw him a bone with this too.

actor

 

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
BRADLEY COOPER / Pat – “SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK” (The Weinstein Company)
DANIEL DAY-LEWIS / Abraham Lincoln – “LINCOLN” (Touchstone Pictures)
JOHN HAWKES / Mark – “THE SESSIONS” (Fox Searchlight)
HUGH JACKMAN / Jean Valjean – “LES MISÉRABLES” (Universal Pictures)
DENZEL WASHINGTON / Whip Whitaker – “FLIGHT” (Paramount Pictures)

PREDICTION: Daniel Day Lewis, “Lincoln.” This is a done deal already. The actors clearly adore him especially since if he actually wins, this will be his third win in this category.

ALTERNATE: Hugh Jackman, “Les Miserables.” He’s clearly a loved guy in Hollywood, and this is the role of his lifetime. SAG voters are warmer to musical and comedies here (Johnny Depp, Jean Dujardin).

actress

 

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
JESSICA CHASTAIN / Maya – “ZERO DARK THIRTY” (Columbia Pictures)
MARION COTILLARD / Stephanie – “RUST AND BONE” (Sony Pictures Classics)
JENNIFER LAWRENCE / Tiffany – “SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK” (The Weinstein Company)
HELEN MIRREN / Alma Reville – “HITCHCOCK” (Fox Searchlight)
NAOMI WATTS / Maria – “THE IMPOSSIBLE” (Summit Entertainment)

PREDICTION: Jennifer Lawrence, “Silver Linings Playbook.” Lawrence is Hollywood’s current it girl. She shifts from blockbuster book adaptations and small indies such as this one. In this day and age that Hollywood young actresses are usually more knoewn to scatter their lives around, they won’t miss the chance to award an actress who isn’t like that.

ALTERNATE: Jessica Chastain, “Zero Dark Thirty.” Clearly, Chastain is known as an actor’s actor. After playing second fiddle for so many years, she finally gets to break through with a leading status.  See Viola Davis last year.

supp actor

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
ALAN ARKIN / Lester Siegel – “ARGO” (Warner Bros. Pictures)
JAVIER BARDEM / Silva – “SKYFALL” (Columbia Pictures)
ROBERT DE NIRO / Pat, Sr. – “SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK” (The Weinstein Company)
PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN / Lancaster Dodd – “THE MASTER” (The Weinstein Company)
TOMMY LEE JONES / Thaddeus Stevens – “LINCOLN” (Touchstone Pictures)

PREDICTION: Robert de Niro, “Silver Linings Playbook.” de Niro hasn’t been awarded a SAG yet and we know how much the Actors Guild love to play catch up to the legendary ones. This is his first real shot since the SAG was established, so they might give him this one.

ALTERNATE: Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln.” The same applies for Tommy Lee Jones too, though he already won a SAG as a part of the  No Country for Old Men ensemble. Plus, de Niro is the more respected veteran of the two.

supp actress

 

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role
SALLY FIELD / Mary Todd Lincoln – “LINCOLN” (Touchstone Pictures)
ANNE HATHAWAY / Fantine – “LES MISÉRABLES” (Universal Pictures)
HELEN HUNT / Cheryl – “THE SESSIONS” (Fox Searchlight)
NICOLE KIDMAN / Charlotte Bless – “THE PAPERBOY” (Millennium Entertainment)
MAGGIE SMITH / Muriel Donnelly – “THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL” (Fox Searchlight)

PREDICTION: Anne Hathaway, “Les Miserables.” Anne is the more mature Jennifer Lawrence in terms of Oscar’s perception of how her career has went through. She has certainly paid her dues, and actors will likely fall over her dedication in this role of Fantine.

ALTERNATE: Sally Field, “Lincoln.” If there’s any actress who has the possibility of pulling an upset, it’s veteran Sally Field. Her performance in Lincoln and the narrative on how much she wanted this role will play a lot in her favor.

stunt

 

Outstanding Performance by a  Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture
The Amazing Spiderman
The Bourne Legacy
The Dark Knight Rises
Les Miserables
Skyfall

PREDICTION: Skyfall. The most acclaimed film of the bunch which highlights the actual complex stunt performances in it.

ALTERNATE: The Dark Knight Rises. Featured complicated stunt performances also, though Skyfall was just better received.

PRIMETIME TELEVISION

tv movie actor

 

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries
KEVIN COSTNER / “Devil Anse” Hatfield – “HATFIELDS & McCOYS” (History)
WOODY HARRELSON / Steve Schmidt – “GAME CHANGE” (HBO)
ED HARRIS / John McCain – “GAME CHANGE” (HBO)
CLIVE OWEN / Ernest Hemingway – “HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN“ (HBO)
BILL PAXTON / Randall McCoy – “HATFIELDS & McCOYS” (History)

PREDICTION: Kevin Costner, “Hatfields & McCoys”. Costner is a SAG-less respected actor in Hollywood who’s starring in his most lauded performance as an actor. He already won the Globe and Emmy, it’ll be an easy win for him.

ALTERNATE: Ed Harris, “Game Change.” Harris fits the same bill as Costner; however, Game Change was primarily the Julianne Moore show and difficult to overcome the lead performances in his category.

tv movie actress

 

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries
NICOLE KIDMAN / Martha Gellhorn – “HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN” (HBO)
JULIANNE MOORE / Sarah Palin – “GAME CHANGE” (HBO)
CHARLOTTE RAMPLING / Eva Delectorskaya – “RESTLESS” (Sundance Channel)
SIGOURNEY WEAVER / Elaine Barrish Hammond – “POLITICAL ANIMALS” (USA)
ALFRE WOODARD / Ouiser – “STEEL MAGNOLIAS” (Lifetime)

PREDICTION: Julianne Moore, “Game Change.” Moore has been nominated for an Actor many times but is still win-less. She gets the role that is too juicy to be passed on and has won the Emmy and Globe as well.

ALTERNATE: Nicole Kidman, “Hemingway & Gellhorn”. While Nicole Kidman is also Actor-less as well, I don’t see her getting her first statue for a TV movie. They‘d probably wait for a movie performance to give her a win.

tv drama actor

 

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
STEVE BUSCEMI / Enoch “Nucky” Thompson – “BOARDWALK EMPIRE” (HBO)
BRYAN CRANSTON / Walter White – “BREAKING BAD” (AMC)
JEFF DANIELS / Will McAvoy – “THE NEWSROOM” (HBO)
JON HAMM / Don Draper – “MAD MEN” (AMC)
DAMIAN LEWIS / Nicholas Brody – “HOMELAND” (Showtime)

PREDICTION: Damian Lewis, “Homeland.” Lewis is in a time where in Homeland is at its hottest and most buzzed moment. He can easily get carried with the overflowing love for the show despite being with a strong group of co-nominees.

ALTERNATE: Steve Buscemi, “Boardwalk Empire.” The SAG TV categories love rubber stamping their winners so Buscemi might just go 3 for 3 here.

tv drama actress

 

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
CLAIRE DANES / Carrie Mathison – “HOMELAND” (Showtime)
MICHELLE DOCKERY / Lady Mary Crawley – “DOWNTON ABBEY” (PBS)
JESSICA LANGE / Sister Jude – “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM” (FX)
JULIANNA MARGULIES / Alicia Florrick – “THE GOOD WIFE” (CBS)
MAGGIE SMITH / Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham – “DOWNTON ABBEY” (PBS)

PREDICTION: Claire Danes, “Homeland.” Probably the most contested category of the night, I can see everyone except Dockery having a shot to win. I’d probably go with the safe choice of Danes, as this is the performance that had everyone raving.

ALTERNATE: Maggie Smith, “Downton Abbey.” Clearly, the voters love Dame Smith giving her an all time record of four nominations in one night. This is her biggest chance of getting a win.

tv comedy actor

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
ALEC BALDWIN / Jack Donaghy – “30 ROCK” (NBC)
TY BURRELL / Phil Dunphy – “MODERN FAMILY” (ABC)
LOUIS C.K. / Louie – “LOUIE” (FX)
JIM PARSONS / Sheldon Cooper – “THE BIG BANG THEORY” (CBS)
ERIC STONESTREET / Cameron Tucker – “MODERN FAMILY” (ABC)

PREDICTION: Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock.” I have the slightest feeling that Baldwin will be dethroned finally but I won’t bet on that until it finally happens.

ALTERNATE: Louis CK, “Louie.” Comedy’s current it boy who can be rewarded for his writing, directing, producing, and starring credits in Louie.

tv comedy actress

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
EDIE FALCO / Jackie Peyton – “NURSE JACKIE” (Showtime)
TINA FEY / Liz Lemon – “30 ROCK” (NBC)
AMY POEHLER / Leslie Knope – “PARKS AND RECREATION” (NBC)
SOFIA VERGARA / Gloria Delgado-Pritchett – “MODERN FAMILY” (ABC)
BETTY WHITE / Elka Ostrovsky – “HOT IN CLEVELAND” (TV Land)

PREDICTION: Betty White, “Hot in Cleveland.” The SAGs love Betty. And they love rubber stamping, so they’d go with her again.

ALTERNATE: Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation.” Amy hasn’t won anything yet for this performance, and some good will residual love from her Globe stint might push her for a win.

drama ensemble

 

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Homeland
Mad Men

PREDICTION: Homeland. There’s nothing stopping the lovefest for this show, and this is their way to reward the whole ensemble.

ALTERNATE: Downton Abbey. The Brit factor must never be underestimated. Plus, it has the largest cast in the group.

comedy ensemble

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
30 Rock
The Big Bang Theory
Glee
Modern Family
Nurse Jackie
The Office

PREDICTION: Modern Family. With such an outdated list of nominees, it’s an easy third straight win for the cast of Modern Family here.

ALTERNATE: The Big Bang Theory. This is the current hottest TV show in the boob tube now, and if voters want somethign new, they can go with the highest rated cast in the group.

tv stunt

Outstanding Performance by a  Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Game of Thrones
Sons of Anarchy
The Walking Dead

PREDICTION: The Walking Dead. I’d probably go with the goriest show in TV that features lots and lots of killing in it. It also won’t hurt that they haven’t won before.

ALTERNATE: Game of Thrones. Current winner can go for a consecutive win here especially if voters are more into sword fightings.

That’s it! Who are you predicting to win? Do not forget to catch the 19th Screen Actors Guild come Monday on Velvet, 9AM for the live telecast and 10 PM for the delayed Primetime telecast. Happy SAG day!
