And The Actor Goes To
Drinking Games, and a Relaxed Dress Code to Match at the SAG Awards
The 18th Annual SAG Awards ceremony was almost like watching the Globes all
over again. Same A-list nominees, same A-list winners, save for upsets in
the Best Actor and Actress categories. Only this time around the festivities
included a drinking game courtesy of the Bridesmaids crew. Kristen Wiig and company's onstage antics echoed the action on the red carpet: For the most part, the vibe tonight was cooler, looser, and more fun—and better for it.
That's not to say the glam factor went missing. Natalie Portman and Zoe Saldana both nabbed looks fresh from the Paris haute couture shows that wrapped last Wednesday; the former chose a strapless Giambattista Valli in a deep shade of bordeaux, and the latter wore Look 17 from Givenchy. Minus the nose ring, that is—things weren't quite that loose.
Still, there was plenty to like: Emma Stone's black Alexander McQueen, Michelle Williams' lacy red Valentino, Jessica Chastain's royal-blue gown from Calvin Klein Collection. We'll be looking forward to seeing what those three choose for the Oscars. Gretchen Mol's white and gold L'Wren Scott column dress also made a big impact.
White and gold also proved lucky for a Marchesa-clad Viola Davis. After winning Best Actress for her role in The Help, she was back on stage again for the Best Ensemble prize.
