Awards season is winding down and, after last night’s 2016 SAG Awards, we’re one step closer to The Big One. Here are the top 10 highlights from the SAG Awards, from celebrity red carpet hits (and misses), to on-stage burns and even some noteworthy wins.
- The reigning red carpet trend at the 2016 SAG Awards was the cutout dress (making me rethink my wedding dress and basically everything else I own), worn by awards show frequenters like Brie Larson, Julianne Moore, Kaley Cuoco and Kate Mara.
- Alicia Vikander continues to make daring (but still dazzling) fashion choices with her patchwork-like sequin gown.
- We got some serious #makeupgoals inspo from glowing celebs like Shiernan Shipka (umm, hi peaches and cream!) and Laverne Cox (basically, inspiration for life).
- Our favourite gal-pal duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey took to the stage to present OG funny lady Carol Burnett with the Lifetime Achievement Award (who, by the way, wore Ugg slippers on the red carpet and made my heart swell with joy). They not only honoured her for blazing the comedienne trail, but also got in a few punches to our favourite Oscar hopeful, Leonardo DiCaprio, with this zinger:
“And while we’re at it, let’s all calm down about Leonardo DiCaprio and his hard work on The Revenant. So you slept in a horse and ate bison liver. Big whoop. Carol would have slept in that horse, worn it, done a song and dance, and made a much funnier face after eating something disgusting.”
- During her acceptance speech for the Lifetime Achievement Award, Carol Burnett reminded us why we love her so damn much and that gender equality in Hollywood is still a big issue. Then she made this face:
- After winning Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, Laura Prepon gave us a much-needed lesson in diversity:
- In the spirit of diversity (and actually recognizing talent for talent, and not skin colour), the awards doled out were a bit more evenly spread, with Idris Elba, Queen Latifah, Uzo Adoba and Viola Davis all took home awards, as well as the cast of Orange Is The New Black, proving that it’s really just the Oscars that can’t get this shit right.
- The Oscar picks gained even more competition with both Brie Larson and Leonardo DiCaprio winning for their leading roles in Room and The Revenant, and Spotlight taking home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture category.
