The 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired last night and many of the actors and actresses who won a SAG award are reflecting on their success.
It was a night of achievements, laughter and most of all – being slightly envied by your peers. The 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired last night and some of the best shows, movies, actors and actresses won the coveted award.
Once again, the touching Southern-drama, The Help, earned the most awards, winning Outstanding Performance In a Supporting Role for Octavia Spencer and Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Costar, Viola Davis, made a heartfelt speech about her experience working on the film and provided some personal insight on life during a red carpet interview.
“I think that’s what it’s all about, you have to work together to create a singular effect,” said the actress about the all-star ensemble to The New York Times. “It’s really important for people to understand that you can’t be great on your own; you need other people to react off of, you need a great narrative and I thought we achieved all of that beautifully in The Help.
Other notable wins included the comedic efforts of Alec Baldwin who accepted the award for Outstanding Male Performance in a Comedy for 30 Rock, the ever-sweet and hilarious Betty White who won the Outstanding Female Performance in a Comedy for Hot in Cleveland and Canadian Christopher Plummer, who graciously accepted Outstanding Male Performance in a Supporting Role for Beginners.
But the night really honored a true veteran of acting when Mary Tyler Moore won the lifetime achievement award for The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The 75-year old recounted the memory when she signed up for the show using her full name.
“I was Mary Tyler Moore. I spoke it out loud,” she said during her acceptance speech according to NY Daily News. “It sounded right so I wrote it down on the form and it looked right. It was right.”
