The 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

As I sit reflecting on the last 2 hours after watchng th SAG awards. I am really disappointed. One tweeter renamed the awards ‘Saggy Awards.” I am forced to agree.

I was indeed pleased that ‘The Help’ came away with: Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture, Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Leading Role – Viola Davis.

Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Supporting Role – Octavia Spencer.

Also: Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Television Movie Or MiniseriesKate Winslet for Mildred Pierce. I was completely hooked on this miniseries.

Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Drama Series– Steve Buscemi in ‘Boardwalk Empirte’. I remember him in Armageddon and The Supranos.

 Let us get back to The Best & The Worst of the night

Here are some of the best….

In a taffeta and tulle Midnight Blue gown by Zac Posen

As her alter ego as Albert Nobbs

 Emily Blunt elegant in an emerald green Oscar De La Renta Gown. This look is perfect for her pale complexion and chestnut locks. She doesn’t need much else. Minimal Jewelery and a simple clutch.

Rose Bryne rocked the red carpet in this jumpsuit by Elle Saab from her 2009 collection. Certainly different to anyone else and definitely a red carpet winner.

 Emma Stone dressed from head to toe in Alexander Mc Queen. Her tea length black full skirted strapless dress with lace bodice was teamed with clutch and high ankle strapped girlie shoes.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jollie. She looked so demur in this backless gown by Jenny Packham.

There were a few mistakes. Here is just a taste.

Kaley Cuoco arrived looking like a peppermint poodle! This creation is attributted to Romona Kerveza.

Lea Michelle in Versace, split from floor to…… well I hope she had waxed! Maybe this gown came with built in underwear?

I have the utmost admiration for Meyrl Streep, but this gown by Zac Posen did not do her natural beauty any justice at all. However, it was an improvement from her Golden Globe crumpled look! Please someone, style Meryl using a colour that doesn’t make her look ghostlike.

This was certainly a star studded event but if you were expecting pzazz, or the familiar Hollywood Glitz and Glamour, then the awards in my opinion were boring! I couldn’t wait for the programme to be over quite frankly.

We still have The Oscars to look forward to……….
