The Artist & The Screen Actors Guild Awards

This past weekend, I finally got to see "The Artist" and it was amazing! It will make you laugh one minute and the next you're trying not to cry because you just feel for George Valentin. I was incredibly thrilled last night when Jean Dujardin won the Best Actor at the SAG Awards (nothing against George Clooney, but I just did NOT want him to win). It was a well deserved win and I wish him the best of luck at the Oscars in a few weeks.

As I mentioned, last night the SAG Awards were on. I didn't think there were any big shockers during the broadcast. People seemed surprised that The Help won best ensemble, but that had actually been my pick to win. However, I think it's a wonderful movie though I actually wouldn't consider it the best of the year. What's most important for this award is that I do consider it to have the best overall cast of the year. Every single actor in that film rocked it.

Speaking of rocking it, some actresses rocked their dresses last night, while others.... just eeesh. I actually made notes during the red carpet of my initial thoughts on the fashion, and here they are:

Octavia Spencer: Not the best color, but the dress was amazing on her. She dresses really well for her shape.
Rose Byrne: I don't appreciate jumpsuits. The top was lovely, but pants?
Kristin Wiig: Dress = boring. And the CHOKER! Horrible choice. Looks like biker/bondage.
Julie Bowen: Nice color, great back.
Viola Davis: Stunning, beautiful flow. Marchesa is one of my favorite labels.
Kaley Cuoco: Pretty but regularly featured (in white) on Say Yes To The Dress.
Ariel Winter: Very age appropriate and I love it!
Michelle Williams: Not normally one of my favorites but I like it! I don't like the ankle strap shoes though...
Emilia Clarke: Love her but hate the dress. Pity.
Amber Riley: I'm not a big fan. I think the bow is too big and the dress length looks semi-awkward on her.
Lea Michele: Pretty with a touch of sexy. Boring color. I think she tries way too hard.
Naya Rivera: She's got it and she flaunts it. Looks great.
Sofia Vergara: I want her earrings! Nice dress, though it looks like every other dress she's worn.
Stacy Keibler: I love lace! I think it's a gorgeous dress.
Gretchen Mol: No.
Emily Blunt: Love dress, pretty color but may be a little too bright of green.
Jane Lynch: Great color on her!
Jessica Chastain: Simple, nice color.
Amber Heard: Different and I think I love it
Emma Stone: Love it. Pretty, girly, short and quirky.
Tilda Swinton: I hate her fashion choices, tonight included.
Angelina Jolie: Simple and elegant. She can't do wrong.
Dianna Agron: Worst hair of the night. Forgettable dress.
Zoe Saldana: Not my thing but white looks great on her.
Shailane Woodley: Kind of tacky and yet it grows on me to the point that I don't loathe it.
Meryl Streep: Wonderful for her age.
Jayma Mays: Sparkly and beautiful!
