Highlights From the 2013 SAG Awards
The 2013 SAG Awards took place at the Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday, the latest glamorous outing for awards season favourites. Anne Hathaway added another award to her collection when she scooped up the honour for outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role. During her speech, Anne started to tear up as she thanked her mother, who is also an actress, for inspiring her and hopefully giving Anne some support on the award ballot. She said, "Thanks mum for voting me, or at least she better have!" Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey both won awards for their final seasons of 30 Rock, with the latter thanking her friend and Golden Globes co-host, Amy Poehler, for giving birth to Lena Dunham. Ben Affleck took home another big win when he and the cast of Argo won outstanding performance from an ensemble in a motion picture.
Other highlights included Jennifer Lawrence winning outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role for Silver Linings Playbook, marking her first SAG Award win. Dick Van Dyke graciously accepted his lifetime achievement award while thanking all of the actors in the room for taking acting to another level. Claire Danes celebrated her new mum status when she accepted the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series, telling the audience that it not only takes a village to raise a child but also to put together a TV show. The cast of Downton Abbey took home one of the biggest surprises of the night when they won outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series, beating out Homeland and Mad Men for the win.
