Welcome to the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

George Lang Published: January 25, 2009

">

I’m in my traditional formal wear for these festivities — pajamas and a two-day beard, so let’s go with this red carpet massacre!

7:02 p.m. “Penelope Cruz looks elegant, and Marisa Tomei dazzles!” We’re in for a night of intense wit.

 

7:03 p.m. “I’m Eva Longoria, and I’m an actor!”

7:06 p.m. Rosario Dawson and Kiefer Sutherland announce Outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series:

CHRISTINA APPLEGATE / Samantha Newly – “SAMANTHA WHO?” (ABC)
AMERICA FERRERA / Betty Suarez – “UGLY BETTY” (ABC)
TINA FEY / Liz Lemon – “30 ROCK” (NBC)
MARY-LOUISE PARKER / Nancy Botwin – “WEEDS” (Showtime)
TRACEY ULLMAN / Various Characters – “TRACEY ULLMAN’S STATE OF THE UNION” (Showtime)

And the winner is…

 

Tina Fey. “I want to thank my daughter Alice for being the funniest person in my family, for coining phrases like, ‘I want to go to there,’ and sometimes just putting on pretend makeup in the mirror, and she’ll turn to me and say, ‘I look like Barack Obama!’”

7:12 p.m. Kyra Sedgwick and Jon Hamm present best actors in a comedy series. Hamm: “If there were an olympics for comedy, these next gentlemen would most resemble the Chinese women’s gymnastics team: formidable, adorable, bendy and of indeterminate age.”

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
ALEC BALDWIN / Jack Donaghy – “30 ROCK” (NBC)
STEVE CARELL / Michael Scott – “THE OFFICE” (NBC)
DAVID DUCHOVNY / Hank Moody – “CALIFORNICATION” (Showtime)
JEREMY PIVEN / Ari Gold – “ENTOURAGE” (HBO)
TONY SHALHOUB / Adrian Monk – “MONK” (USA)

And the actor goes to…

Alec Baldwin. Strangely free of humor, but gracious and not packing heat.

7:20 p.m. TNT is promoting its new show “Trust Me,” starring Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh. This apparently proves they are not the same person. Well, amazing things can be done with editing.

7:22 p.m. This “Trailblazers” montage might be the most vague clipjob I’ve ever seen. It’s like “Bring Out Yer Dead” mixed with “That’s Entertainment.” We have westerns, we have chariot races, we have Butch and Sundance doing the “Oh S–t!” jump. We have a gay montage, we have “Lolita,” we have “Maude,” we have whiplash!

7:24 p.m. Claire Danes announces the comedy ensemble crews:

And the winner is…

“30 Rock.” Jane Krakowski: “I was lucky enough to be part of ‘Ally McBeal’ for five years, and I can honestly say that this ensemble is a thousand times heavier.” Which is to say that “Brothers & Sisters” is the reigning featherweight champion, I suppose.

7:32 p.m. The comedy stylings of Frank Langella and Michael Sheen lead into a clip of “Frost/Nixon,” then Greg Kinnear arrives to announce female actress in a supporting role:

AMY ADAMS / Sister James – “DOUBT” (Miramax Films)
PENÉLOPE CRUZ / Maria Elena – “VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA” (The Weinstein Company)
VIOLA DAVIS / Mrs. Miller – “DOUBT” (Miramax Films)
TARAJI P. HENSON / Queenie – “THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON” (Paramount Pictures)
KATE WINSLET / Hanna Schmitz – “THE READER” (The Weinstein Company)

And the actor goes to…

Kate Winslet for “The  Reader.” “I really feel like everyone should be given a medal.” Yes, especially the producers who kept the “15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards” down to two hours. I mean, they’re not Chesley Sullenberger, but they’re heroic, nevertheless.

7:39 p.m. Christina Applegate and Taye Diggs, looking like they’d each rather be getting root canals through their feet instead of standing at the dais, announce male actor in a drama series:

MICHAEL C. HALL / Dexter Morgan – “DEXTER” (Showtime)
JON HAMM / Don Draper – “MAD MEN” (AMC)
HUGH LAURIE / Gregory House – “HOUSE” (FOX)
WILLIAM SHATNER / Denny Crane – “BOSTON LEGAL” (ABC)
JAMES SPADER / Alan Shore – “BOSTON LEGAL” (ABC)

And the winner is…

Hugh Laurie, who is setting himself up as the Kelsey Grammer of the new millennium. How the hell did Jon Hamm not win this thing?

7:43 p.m. Jon Krasinski and Amy Poehler engage in some overacting that looks a lot like Sally Field’s clip from “Brothers & Sisters” as they announce best actress in a drama:

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
SALLY FIELD / Nora Walker – “BROTHERS & SISTERS” (ABC)
MARISKA HARGITAY / Det. Olivia Benson – “LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT” (NBC)
HOLLY HUNTER / Grace Hanadarko – “SAVING GRACE” (TNT)
ELISABETH MOSS / Peggy Olson – “MAD MEN” (AMC)
KYRA SEDGWICK / Dep. Chief Brenda Johnson – “THE CLOSER” (TNT)

And the actor goes to…

Sally Field. “I am so proud to be an actor, and so proud that my fellow actors would give me this. I mean it.” Well, duh — they like you. They really like you.

RICH SOMMER                           Harry Crane

And the actor goes to…

“Mad Men,” and Jon Hamm thanks the show’s “dozens of viewers.” If that were true, I would imagine I’m Facebook friends with all of them.

 

8:01 p.m. Alan Rosenberg, president of SAG and star of “L.A. Law” from 1989 to 1994, gives the obligatory spiel, but says bupkis about whether SAG is going on strike or not. Then Forest Whitaker presents the Lifetime Achievement Award to James Earl Jones, whom he describes as “a king amongst men.” This is a man who has done everything under the sun, from “King Lear” to “Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins,” and Lord Vader makes you believeeverything he says, or at least fear that the power of his basso profundo could disable your nervous system.

 

8:13 p.m. J.E. Jones: “In this gathering of gifted artists, I would like to raise a salute — Paul Newman, somebody down here likes you.” From God’s voice to God’s ears.

8:18 p.m. Ernest Borgnine (!) announces the best actress in a miniseries or TV movie:

LAURA DERN / Katherine Harris – “RECOUNT” (HBO)
LAURA LINNEY / Abigail Adams – “JOHN ADAMS” (HBO)
SHIRLEY MacLAINE / Coco Chanel – “COCO CHANEL” (Lifetime)
PHYLICIA RASHAD / Lena Younger – “A RAISIN IN THE SUN” (ABC)
SUSAN SARANDON / Doris Duke – “BERNARD AND DORIS” (HBO)

And the actor goes to…

Laura Linney for “John Adams.”

8:24 p.m. Amy Adams and Viola Davis introduce scenes from “Doubt,” nominated for ensemble excellence. Then Marisa Tomei arrives to bestow the award for best male actor in TV movie or miniseries:

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries
RALPH FIENNES / Bernard Lafferty – “BERNARD AND DORIS” (HBO)
PAUL GIAMATTI / John Adams – “JOHN ADAMS” (HBO)
KEVIN SPACEY / Ron Klain – “RECOUNT” (HBO)
KIEFER SUTHERLAND / Jack Bauer – “24: REDEMPTION” (FOX)
TOM WILKINSON / Benjamin Franklin – “JOHN ADAMS” (HBO)

And the actor goes to…

Paul Giamatti. Who wasn’t available to accept the award, because he’s gunning for us all.

8:27 p.m. “Bring Out Yer Dead!” Don LaFontaine, what are we going to do without your dulcet tones? Augusta Dabney, we hardly knew ye.

8:37 p.m. And we’re back, and Kristin Scott Thomas announces best male actor in a supporting role:

JOSH BROLIN / Dan White – “MILK” (Focus Features)
ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. / Kirk Lazarus – “TROPIC THUNDER” (Paramount Pictures)
PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN / Father Brendan Flynn – “DOUBT” (Miramax Films)
HEATH LEDGER / Joker – “THE DARK KNIGHT” (Warner Bros. Pictures)
DEV PATEL / Older Jamal – “SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

And the actor goes to…

Heath Ledger. Gary Oldman accepts on his behalf, saying “It is a great honor to be asked to accept this on behalf of Heath. He was an extraordinary young man with an extraordinary talent, and it is wonderful that you have acknowledged that and honored that talent tonight.”

 

8:42 p.m. Taraji P. Henson and Oklahoma-born (I’m contractually obligated to say that) Brad Pitt introduce clips from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” And I have to say this: Henson is making Pitt look ugly by comparison. Uh… dang. Sorry I don’t have anything more edifying to say, but good God.

8:48 p.m. Ralphie Fiennes announces best female actor in a drama:

ANNE HATHAWAY / Kym – “RACHEL GETTING MARRIED” (Sony Pictures Classics)
ANGELINA JOLIE / Christine Collins – “CHANGELING” (Universal Pictures)
MELISSA LEO / Ray Eddy – “FROZEN RIVER” (Sony Pictures Classics)
MERYL STREEP / Sister Aloysius Beauvier – “DOUBT” (Miramax Films)
KATE WINSLET / April Wheeler – “REVOLUTIONARY ROAD” (Paramount Vantage)

And the actor goes to…

Meryl Streep. “Wow, I didn’t even buy a dress. I’m really really shocked, and even though awards mean nothing to me anymore, I’m really happy!” And she was. I’m starting to think that Streep pulls an upset at the Oscars.

8:56 p.m. Katie Holmes announces best male actor in a leading role:

RICHARD JENKINS / Walter Vale – “THE VISITOR” (Overture Films)
FRANK LANGELLA / Richard Nixon – “FROST/NIXON” (Universal Pictures)
SEAN PENN / Harvey Milk – “MILK” (Focus Features)
BRAD PITT / Benjamin Button – “THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON” (Paramount Pictures)
MICKEY ROURKE / Randy – “THE WRESTLER” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

And the actor goes to…

Sean Penn. Who definitely deserves it, though not nearly as much as Mickey does. Now, my certainty is shaken regarding Oscar. “Good evening, comrades — that was for O’Reilly.”

9:02 p.m. Anthony Hopkins, looking strangely thin, announces ensemble for feature film:
