SAG Awards 2013 – winners

It’s a Sunday in January, which means there’s a good chance there will be an awards show happening somewhere. Indeed, actors of both the big and small screen gathered for the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards on this chilly and rainy L.A. day, and, as we get closer and closer to the Oscars, the red-carpet fashion just keeps getting better.
By now – we’re familiar with the sartorial direction the top contenders are going in, and seeing them take risks, play it safe or totally surprise us with each carpet is what keeps us from going totally crazy having to work every Sunday night.
The SAG Awards carpet was all trends. With two looks in particular taking up a lot of the spotlight. The first was navy, with Female Actor in a Leading Role winner Jennifer Lawrence leading the pack in a form-fitting, strapless Dior Couture gown and Chopard jewelry. The slinky dress, which looked almost sewn onto the actress’ body, created a classic Hollywood feel, particularly because Lawrence complemented it with cascading, wavy brown hair parted deep on one side — a very Veronica Lake, classic Tinseltown look that was the second most popular trend of the night. Finishing the look with a deep oxblood lip, Jennifer is clearly gearing up for the ultra glamorous Oscars she has to come.

“Argo” continues to steamroll through awards season, winning the top honor for overall cast performance at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Sunday’s win came a day after the CIA thriller claimed the top honor from the Producers Guild of America, whose winner often goes on to claim best picture at the Academy Awards. “Argo” also was a surprise victor two weeks ago at the Golden Globes, where it won best drama and director for Ben Affleck.
“To me this has nothing to do with me, it has to do with the incredible people who were in this movie” – said Affleck, who also stars in “Argo” and accepted the SAG prize alongside his cast.
The award momentum positions “Argo” for a rare feat at the February 24 Oscars, where it could become just the fourth film in 85 years to be named best picture without a nomination for its director.

The outlook seems equally golden for Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway, whose Golden Globe awards two weeks ago were followed Sunday night with SAG awards.
Day-Lewis won the trophy (and a standing ovation) for lead actor as the nation’s 16th president in “Lincoln.” Lawrence won her award for female actor playing a young widow in the quirky romantic comedy “Silver Linings Playbook.” Hathaway took the SAG award for female actor in a supporting role as the tragic Fantine in “Les Miserables.”
Tommy Lee Jones won his first major award of the season for male supporting actor for “Lincoln.” Jones is also nominated for an Academy Award for supporting actor.
The SAG movie wins offered a rare moment of clarity as the highly unpredictable awards season enters its final stretch, culminating with the Academy Awards on February 24.
A SAG win does not guarantee Oscar gold, but history suggests it’s nearly impossible to win an Academy Award in the acting categories without a SAG nomination.
On the television side of the awards ceremony, it was a three-peat night for Claire Danes, Julianne Moore, Kevin Costner and the ABC sitcom “Modern Family.”
The performers made it a clean sweep by winning the Emmy, the Golden Globe and the SAG award.
Danes won for female actor in a drama series for Showtime’s political thriller “Homeland.” Moore’s uncanny performance as 2008 Republican vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin in HBO’s “Game Change” earned her female actor in a television movie or miniseries. And Costner nabbed male actor in a television movie or miniseries for History’s “Hatfields & McCoys.”
“Modern Family,” meanwhile, earned its third consecutive SAG award for ensemble in a comedy series.
