Here are the *slightly belated* SAG Winners. The winners are in bold and my thoughts as always follow in green. I have to say one thing, whoever was the announcer during the ceremony was terrible. That montage of shots of the honorees on the red carpet was so painful I was embarrased for her. "Zero Dark Thirty's Jessica Chastain looks Zero Dark Flirty." "Hey Daniel Day-Lewis" "Ben Affleck better Argo Find his seat." Seriously? Who wrote that?
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading RoleBradley Cooper (“Pat”) - Silver Linings Playbook (The Weinstein Company)
Daniel Day-Lewis (“Abraham Lincoln”) – Lincoln (Touchstone Pictures)John Hawkes (“Mark”) - The Sessions (Fox Searchlight)
Hugh Jackman (“Jean Valjean”) - Les Misérables (Universal Pictures)
Denzel Washington (“Whip Whitaker”) – Flight (Paramount Pictures)
DDL gave a really classy speech with shot outs to Joaquin Phoenix, Liam Neeson, (Who had the part of Lincoln before him, but had to drop out) and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
Jessica Chastain (“Maya”) – Zero Dark Thirty (Columbia Pictures)
Marion Cotillard (“Stephanie”) – Rust and Bone (Sony Pictures Classics)
Jennifer Lawrence (“Tiffany”) – Silver Linings Playbook (The Weinstein Company)Helen Mirren (“Alma Reville”) – Hitchcock (Fox Searchlight)
Naomi Watts (“Maria”) - The Impossible (Summit Entertainment)
I'm really glad Jennifer took this one. Her speech was really charming, and I'd say this puts her as the front runner for the Oscar.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
Alan Arkin (“Lester Siegel”) – Argo (Warner Bros. Pictures)
Javier Bardem (“Silva”) – “SKYFALL” (Columbia Pictures)
Robert De Niro (“Pat, Sr.”) – Silver Linings Playbook (The Weinstein Company)
Philip Seymour Hoffman (“Lancaster Dodd”) – The Master (The Weinstein Company)
Tommy Lee Jones (“Thaddeus Stevens”) - Lincoln (Touchstone Pictures)
Tommy Lee Jones wasn't there, he was probably being crabby at home. In all honesty, I thought this was disappointing. I was hoping they'd honor Javier, who missed out on the Oscar nominations, or Hoffman who was brilliant in The Master.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role
Sally Field (“Mary Todd Lincoln”) - Lincoln (Touchstone Pictures)
Anne Hathaway (“Fantine”) – Les Misérables (Universal Pictures)Helen Hunt (“Cheryl”) – The Sessions (Fox Searchlight)
Nicole Kidman (“Charlotte Bless”) – The Paperboy (Millennium Entertainment)
Maggie Smith (“Muriel Donnelly”) - The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Fox Searchlight)
Another awkward speech by Anne Hathaway. I love her, seriously, but her speeches rub me the wrong way.
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
ArgoThe Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Silver Linings Playbook
I'm so happy for Argo. I want to say this is now the front runner for Best Picture, but I don't know if the Academy loved it as much as everyone else. SLP or Les Mis could still squeeze in.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
Steve Buscemi (“Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson”) – Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
Bryan Cranston (“Walter White”) – Breaking Bad (AMC)Jeff Daniels (“Will McAvoy”) – The Newsroom (HBO)
Jon Hamm (“Don Draper”) – Mad Men (AMC)
Damian Lewis (“Nicholas Brody”) – Homeland (Showtime)
I literally screamed "YES!" when Cranston won. He said "it's good to be back." Yes, yes it is. Please win everything next year.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
Claire Danes (“Carrie Mathison”) – Homeland (Showtime)
Michelle Dockery (“Lady Mary Crawley”) – Downton Abbey (PBS)
Jessica Lange (“Sister Jude”) – American Horror Story: Asylum (FX)
Julianna Margulies (“Alicia Florrick”) – The Good Wife (CBS)
Maggie Smith (“Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham”) – Downton Abbey (PBS)
I usually dislike Claire Dane's speeches as well, but I actually laughed at her almost forgetting her husband and baby. That was a nice touch at the end.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
Alec Baldwin (“Jack Donaghy”) – 30 Rock (NBC)Ty Burrell (“Phil Dunphy”) – Modern Family (ABC)
Louis C.K. (“Louie”) – Louie (FX)
Jim Parsons (“Sheldon Cooper”) – The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Eric Stonestreet (“Cameron Tucker”) – Modern Family (ABC)
Eight in a row for Alec Baldwin. That is pretty damn good. SAGs love them some 30 Rock.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
Edie Falco (“Jackie Peyton”) - Nurse Jackie (Showtime)
Tina Fey (“Liz Lemon”) – 30 Rock (NBC)Amy Poehler (“Leslie Knope”) – Parks and Recreations (NBC)
Sofia Vergara (“Gloria Delgado-Pritchett”) – Modern Family (ABC)
Betty White (“Elka Ostrovsky”) – Hot in Cleveland (TV Land)
Tina Fey had the best line of the night when shouting out to Amy Poehler: "I've known you since you were pregnant with Lena Dunham!"
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
Breaking Bad (AMC)
Downton Abbey (PBS)Homeland (Showtime)
Mad Men (AMC)
Of course I was mad that Breaking Bad didn't win, but the cast of Downton Abbey looked genuinely surprised that they won.
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
30 Rock (NBC)
The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Modern Family (ABC)Nurse Jackie (Showtime)
The Office (NBC)
Modern Family gave some props to 30 Rock and The Office on their final seasons this year. That was nice of them. I was rooting for Big Bang.

Kevin Costner (“‘Devil Anse’ Hatfield”) – Hatfields & McCoys (History)Woody Harrelson (“Steve Schmidt”) – Game Change (HBO)
Ed Harris (“John McCain”) – Game Change (HBO)
Clive Owen (“Ernest Hemingway”) - Hemingway & Gellhorn (HBO)
Bill Paxton (“Randall McCoy”) – Hatfields & McCoys (History)
None of these nominees were even there. That was awkward.

Julianne Moore (“Sarah Palin”) – Game Change (HBO)
Charlotte Rampling (“Eva Delectorskaya”) – Restless (Sundance Channel)
