18th annual screen actors guild (SAG) awards wrap up (2012)

The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on 29th January 2012. Unlike most award ceremonies, the SAG Awards don’t have a host, just a slew of famous presenters.

The ceremony opened with the now expected “How I Became An Actor” monologues, with Jon Cryer, Demian Bichir, Emily Watson, Amber Riley, Jim Parsons and Rose Byrne. The Help was the big winner of the night, taking home every award for which it was nominated.

It is so hard to pick the winners of the SAG awards, because it is the only awards ceremony voted for by the actors themselves. So while my average was pretty good for this awards show, picking 10 of the 14 winners, I was wrong for the most important awards of the night, the Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress.

Best Dressed (my favourites from the night)

Rose Byrne took the biggest fashion risk of the night wearing this bejewelled 70s inspired Elie Saab jumpsuit and she looks absolutely stunning.

Viola Davis looked beautiful in her white Grecian-inspired Marchesa creation with golden bronze accents.

Michelle Williams showed off her feminine side in this gorgeous red Valentino gown. I am loving the lace accents.

Worst Dressed

I don't really have a worst dressed, but I don't like the combination of the choker with the high neck line of the gorgeous blush Balenciaga dress Kristen Wiig is wearing.

Honourable mentions for worst dressed: Amber Riley and Emilia Clarke.
