Diverse is the word that I would use to describe the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards. They were so diverse that I dared to think for a moment that there was some kind of conspiracy behind the winners list considering the tension in Hollywood post-#OscarsSoWhite, but I am not going to entertain that thought because I am better than that.
For fashion, the "Jolie leg" is in and prints of any kind are out. I had the same outfit as Nicole Kidman when I was 6. Check out the best and worst dressed stars below.
The great thing about the SAGs is that there is not host which makes the show an hour shorter and means that I'll be in bed before 3am (writing two recaps is both exciting and tiresome). They just get down to business a.k.a. hand out awards.
Now before we talk winners, I need to let you all in on a little secret. I think Mr. Robot's Rami Malek is a total dreamboat. Take a minute to admire him, but remember that he's mine as you proceed to read the important part of this post.
I have to get this exciting news out of the way or else I'll burst... LEO WON AGAIN! This means he's heading towards an overdue and well-deserved Oscar victory. If he doesn't win, all hell will break lose. Brie Larson also continued her 2016 award season winning streak making it more likely than not that the Best Actress Oscar has her name on it. Speaking of Brie and Room, her pint sized co-star Jacob Tremblay is adorbs and needs to quit killing the world with cuteness.
The Oscars for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress could be anyone's game considering the inconsistency in winners this season. Tonight, Idris Elba took Best Supporting Actor (not nominated for an Oscar, but Sylvester Stallone and Christian Bale have taken the award home at the last two shows), Best Supporting Actress went to Alicia Vikander (her competition is Kate Winslet), and Best Picture went to Spotlight for the second show in a row (it's competition is The Revenant).
It is known that whoever and whatever wins a SAG ends up winning an Oscar. I mean, the SAG/Academy have only disagreed on Best Actress 6 times in 21 years. Crazy.
The TV categories were more fulfilling in terms of diversity with Uzo Aduba and the Orange Is The New Black cast, Queen Latifah, Viola Davis, Jeffrey Tambor, and Idris Elba winning hardware. Their speeches were very memorable and inspiring for minorities and aspiring actors and actresses pointing out that it's okay to be different and to go for whatever it is you dream of doing. Also, Queen Latifah doing arm curls with her SAG was EVERYTHING.
