SAG Awards 2013: The big moments, from Fey quips to Lawrence rippage – Los Angeles Times

  1. 1. SAG Awards 2013: The big moments, from Fey quips toLawrence rippage – Los Angeles TimesTommy Lee Jones had the flu and didn’t show up to the Screen Actors Guild Awards at theShrine Auditorium on Sunday night. He should have tanked up on Emergen-C and made thetrip.Jones won the male actor in a supporting role prize for playing an abolitionist lawmaker in“Lincoln,” allowing the oft-terse actor to somehow be even less loquacious. In a show with fewnotable stage moments, perhaps the most conspicuous speech was the one Jones didn’t give.The absence made for an awkward moment near the top of the SAG Awards, and it wasn’t theonly eyebrow-raiser of the TBS broadcast. In a show notorious for union-thumping and guildgenuflection — “my brothers and sisters,” as Daniel Day-Lewis put it — several incidents seemedlikely to elicit groans.SAG 2013: Winners | Quotes | Photo Booth | Red carpet | Backstage | Best & WorstReading the voice-over for a Dick Van Dyke lifetime achievement prize, Alec Baldwin describedthe octogenarian’s volunteerism in soup kitchens, in a speech that stopped just short of sayingthe “Mary Poppins” actor saved cats from tall treetops and cured terminal diseases with hishair. (For his part, Van Dyke gave a speech that was short and classy, and free of the riddlesthat marked Jodie Foster’s lifetime achievement speech at the Golden Globes two weeks ago.)There seemed to be no shortage of teeth-gnashing from winners over the continuing success of“The Big Bang Theory,” with both “Modern Family” and “30 Rock” stars dropping snark aboutit. (“Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson had an under-his-breath jibe about “‘Big Bang Ratings’ —I mean ‘Theory,’” while Tina Fey, touting her show’s finale this Thursday, made anunexpected plea: “Just tape ‘The Big Bang Theory’ for once, for crying out loud,” she said.In a show that can play like an extended Jenna Maroney sketch — note rampant usage of“actor,” pronounced act-OAR, natch — the “30 Rock” creator was a breath of fresh air, alsonoting that she’s known Amy Poehler since the “Parks & Recreation’ star was “pregnant withLena Dunham.” Also 1/7

  3. 3. Panoramas: 2013 SAG Awards See more stories »Meanwhile, male actor in a leading role winner Daniel Day-Lewis seemed to have the joke ofthe night when he noted that “it was an actor who murdered Abraham Lincoln”–but then fellback down the earnestness hole when he talked about actors bringing the 16th president backto life.Day-Lewis also offered some unusual shout-outs — one to praise the not-nominated star of “TheMaster,” Joaquin Phoenix, and a tandem nod to Liam Neeson, who almost played the Lincolnrole, and former costar Leonardo DiCaprio. (Both helped persuade him to tackle the part of theCivil War-era president.)And Anne Hathaway took a dive into the sincerity pool herself when she won for female actor ina supporting role. But she did land one of the evening’s memorable moments when she and“Les Miserables” costar Hugh Jackman — like Hathaway, a performer known for a superherofranchise — intro’ed their film with a riff involving Catwoman, Wolverine, “Mamma Mia!” andlove children.Another young star, Jennifer Lawrence, continued her quite literally breathless run throughawards season after winning female lead actor. Recently felled by pneumonia, Lawrencenonetheless did her usual effusive schtick at the Shrine when she strode up to the stage in along Dior dress that appeared to rip en route. After a typically ingenuous acceptance speech,she ran past reporters backstage saying she was suffering some, er, urinary urgency. It seemedfitting for a show made for bathroom breaks.SAG 2013: Winners | Quotes | Photo Booth | Red carpet | Backstage | Best & Worst 3/7
  4. 4. The big moment of the night came when Ben Affleck and the rest of the cast of “Argo” solidifiedtheir Oscar front-runner status by winning the top prize of cast in a motion picture. Affleck’sacceptance speech played the gracious card, but in the press room he couldn’t resist a knockon the Motion Picture Academy’s directors branch when he called on a reporter he had hadn’tseen before by saying, “I’m sorry I overlooked you … I know how it feels.”TBS made the most of its rare foray into awards season, offering interstitials that displayed themundane tweets from stars of its shows, such as its soon-to-debut “Cougar Town” (not, itshould be said, that Busy Phillips’ whereabouts during all moments of the broadcast isn’t anendlessly fascinating subject).Yet it was often the spaces between that could be most noteworthy at the SAG Awards: Thebroadcast featured the first TV commercial for Disney’s upcoming “Oz: The Great andPowerful” that features James Franco as the Emerald City shaman.As this was an awards show with TV stars, there were also the requisite Sofia Vergara jokes.“Modern Family” costar Ferguson quipped that she was busy landing development deals as hespoke. The Colombian-born actress, meanwhile, noted that she’d reassured her dad heneedn’t worry about her prostituting herself in show business because her God-given anatomywas such that she already looked like a hooker.ALSO:‘Argo’ nabs best ensemble prizeRed carpet fashion at the SAG AwardsSAG: The complete list of nominees and winnersFollow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/ZeitchikLAT 4/7
