We’ll get to what she said in a minute.  But we really need to take a second and talk about the truly maddening fact that Alison Brie was asked about James Franco at all. If you didn’t know, she’s married to his brother Dave Franco, which is why this came up – but I’m frustrated because she was a double nominee last night, for her role in GLOW and as a part of the ensemble. Full Story

~Prelude~ Stupid “So, you’re Irish!” question of the night: Guiliana Rancic told Saoirse Ronan that she heard that actually had trouble saying some ‘American’ words. Which made me roll my eyes, as per usual, but then of course, Saoirse Ronan is somehow able to make the anecdote charming, talking about how ‘Sacramentoans’ – she was careful not to make a blanket statement about ‘Americans’ – say ‘perfickt’ for perfect, and how hard it was for her to get her mouth around it. Full Story

Do you love them as much as I love them? Do you love Leslie Bibb as much as I love her? Did you see her interview Guiliana Rancic on the red carpet and make it one of the best interviews of the night? Guiliana was supposed to be interviewing them, of course. Full Story

Two weeks ago at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Olivia Munn (who hosted) did a bit with Niecy Nash calling out Hollywood predators and also Mark Wahlberg. I was into it. And I was into the repeat performance last night when they co-presented at the SAGs, making a point that there were no Asian nominees in the Best Actor in a Drama Series category. Full Story

Is it not amazing how the movies and shows and performances get shifted or elevated or changed in your mind?  I saw I, Tonya before it was in wide release, so those who had seen it at film festivals were mostly talked out and everyone who hadn’t seen it yet weren't done yet.  And like I’ve written before, I literally thought about it every day. Full Story

I am all about the SAG awards having only female presenters, and it was pleasantly not noticeable in the way that men must feel all the time but I was of the opinion that Gina Rodriguez presenting with Megan Mullally was a slightly odd pairing, first of all, and a thankless task for both of them. I especially like how they were scripted to talk about the fact that each of their shows were groundbreaking and showcased a variety of communities … and then they presented the best Male Actor in a miniseries to – SING IT WITH ME – five white men. Full Story

As Duana just noted, there were a LOT of sequins going on last night. Every other dress glittered. Tracee Ellis Ross glittered in a breathtaking white Ralph & Russo gown with a wrap-around cape situation that fell off one shoulder. Full Story

The SAG awards doesn’t get enough credit for being its own kind of weirdo awards show. It’s mercifully brief, there aren’t really ‘bits’ aside from the whole “I am an actor” business, and am I the only one who likes the whole long, slanted tables so nobody’s exactly in front thing?  That said, I feel like they didn’t do enough with Kristen Bell as host. Full Story
