Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
BOARDWALK EMPIRE (HBO)
THE CLOSER (TNT)
THE GOOD WIFE (CBS)
MAD MEN (AMC)
Boardwalk Empire wins, and Steve Buscemi has lost his other speech. More importantly to me, Kelly Macdonald has an excellent shiny black dress. "Now I have time left, and I have to keep talking!" moans Buscemi. Paz de la Huerta takes over and thanks Scorsese and a couple of other people and seriously, I don't know what's not working with this posting process but something is not working here.
Here's SAG president Ken Howard, who thanks various unions (UNION! UNION!), and says (ominously?) that we will hear more in future months about SAG and AFTRA uniting.
Ladies and gentlemen! Dennis Haysbert! I wish I had bought interwebs insurance with you, Mr. Haysbert. Wait, is this going to be a montage? About--commercials? Because.... ohhhhhhh, I get it.
Blessedly, the montage allows me to scream at the internets long enough to make them work.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role
AMY ADAMS / Charlene Fleming – “THE FIGHTER” (Paramount Pictures)
HELENA BONHAM CARTER / Queen Elizabeth – “THE KING’S SPEECH” (The Weinstein Company)
MILA KUNIS / Lily – “BLACK SWAN” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)
MELISSA LEO / Alice Ward – “THE FIGHTER” (Paramount Pictures)
HAILEE STEINFELD / Mattie Ross – “TRUE GRIT” (Paramount Pictures)
Everyone in this category, so far as I have seen, looks great, by the way. Even Helena Bonham Carter is unusually fancy! Hailee Steinfeld's stripy dress is precious! I saw Mila Kunis in passing on a red carpet thing and her dress looked well-fitted and with no horrible tulle parasites on it! Amy Adams is in white that is dangerously skirting beige. Maybe white is going to be the go-to color tonight? Melissa Leo wins, of course, but even Christian Bale (who is patting her shoulder) seems to have trimmed back the Jesus. She's is in a very nice sparkly-goldy yet tasteful sort of number (this is why I don't have a fashion blog) and she is a mess, emotionally. I think she's even more shocked to win the SAG than she was the Golden Globes. She brought--six of the seven girls who played her daughters? I haven't seen The Fighter yet, I don't know if this makes any sense or not. Also: UNION! UNION!
Commercials. THIS BETTER WORK.
