In the past few years, red carpet reporters have started to move from “Who are you wearing?” to asking more serious questions like “So, you wanna talk about your creep of a brother-in-law?” But if Taryn Manning had been asked who she was wearing at the SAG Awards last Sunday, there’s a very good chance a Bloomingdale’s employee watching from home would have come up with the answer before she could. Because unbeknownst to Taryn, she was wearing $199 dress from the mall. And she’s pretty pissed about that.
A day after James Franco was accused of being a major creep by a handful of women, he skipped the Critics’ Choice Awards. It seems as though James decided that enough dust had settled on his bad press, and he ventured back out into the world last night for the SAG Awards. Aziz Ansari has also recently been accused of perceived creep behavior. That accusation must have still been a bit too fresh, because just like James on Critics’ Choice Award night, Aziz decided to bail on the SAG Awards.
There was a lot of messy fashion at the SAG Awards last night (prepare yourself accordingly after that jump below!). But obviously any effort that was put in was immediately cancelled out the second Kate Hudson returned to the scene of last year’s fashion crime and fully outdid herself in a fluffy Valentino vision of countrified love. I say love because, duh, the hearts a’plenty, but also because I love this dress. What’s not to love? Black velvet (check), pink beauty pageant chiffon (check), a high-lace neckline with corresponding bib of ruffles (checking furiously). The only thing missing is a pink parasol. Kate probably left it in the limo for fear of being mistaken for Miley Cyrus in a knock-off production of My Fair Lady called Decent Lookin’ Gal.
Here’s who else showed up and sizzled eyeballs with style.
Frances McDormand is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in comfortable clothing and scented with Ivory soap. She also gets lots of awards (she’s a G away from that EGOT), but may be getting tired of winning awards over the youngins’.
Last night, Alison Brie, Alison’s husband Dave Franco, and Dave’s brother James Franco all attended the SAG Awards in Los Angeles. James skipped the red carpet, but someone from the family had to take on the thankless job of fielding all the awkward questions about him on the red carpet. That honor fell on Alison. A choice that I’m sure was made democratically by drawing straws in the limo on the ride over, and not because James didn’t want to risk his damage control being delivered as “Yo, man, the allegations are, like…very un-rad, dude.”
I’m surprised Donald Trump isn’t humping out a tweet of victory today because, while his Alabama pedophile possum of a candidate Roy Moore lost last night, the Ghost of Christmas Washington Post Past lost out at getting a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination.
Stranger Things and Big Little Lies netted a bunch of noms on the TV side, and Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri performed well on the silver screen side. The Hollywood Reporter notes that all the presenters at 2018’s Kristin Bell-hosted ceremony will be female in response to this year’s wave of sexual abuse revelations. That’s fine and dandy, but one female who WON’T have a reason to get on that stage is poor, up-and-coming actress Meryl Streep! Meryl and Tom Hanks didn’t get a SAG Award nomination for portraying the fight to publish the Pentagon Papers in The Post. That’s a MAYJAH snub considering actors wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Thee Meryl Streep!
Along with Meryl and Tom, Daniel-Day Lewis was shut out for his role in Phantom Thread, said to be his last movie before retirement. His ass would probably have gone “method” and had no qualms about hurling a starch of the Far East in protest of being snubbed for his craft!
You can find the nominees after the cut. Prepare to sob, because Tiffany Haddish didn’t get honored for her grapefruiting skills in Girls Trip. Continue reading
