Bonus Awards Night

I don't remember ever having seen the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards broadcast before.... but at any rate, TBS is showing them tonight. Along with the Directors' Guild of America (their awards were handed out last night), the SAG Awards provide a clue to who will win the Academy Awards. Here's a few highlights...

I find it odd that most of the cast from Desperate Housewives opted for lavender dresses... and I am ticked off that they beat both Arrested Development and also My Name is Earl (both much funnier shows) for ensemble comedy.

S. Epatha Merkerson won her third honour for her work in Lackawanna Blues (which I haven't seen) and was again very weepy and emotional -- up until the point where she thanked her divorce lawyer with a cackle that could strike fear into the heart of any husband.

One of the weirder moments was the awkward scripted banter between Jake Gyllenhall and Heath Ledger while talking about Brokeback Mountain... as Jon Stewart would say, "UnCOMfortable."
