SAG Awards: ‘Lupita, meet Oscar. Jared Leto has such purty hair’

Gold Derby’s editors live around the world: Rob Licuria and Matt Noble in Australia, Paul Sheehan and Daniel Montgomery in New York, me and Marcus Dixon in Los Angeles, Chris Beachum in Tupelo, Mississippi, Charles Bright in Virginia. So when we watch an awards show together, we exchange our bitchy commentary via round-robin emails. Below is part of our snarky exchange tonight while watching the SAG Awards.

LICURIA: Yeeessssss!!!!! LUPITA! High five, Daniel!

BEACHUM: Lupita just won the Oscar. Beating JL tonight seals it.

MONTGOMERY: I agree Chris. Jennifer Lawrence really needed this. Honestly, seeing Lupita win they can just end the show right there. That’s all I needed. 🙂

LICURIA: Agreed. Lupita, meet Oscar. Jared Leto has such purty hair.

BRIGHT: Rob, the way you wrote that last email about Leto’s hair was creepy just in reading it.

LICURIA: Wow! Mirren!!! You were right!!!!!

MONTGOMERY: Whew. Mirren was a lucky guess. It could have been any of those women, and I was worried because SAG loves Mirren but I don’t think anybody really liked “Phil Spector” all that much.

BRIGHT: I’ve always loved Rita Moreno, but DAMN did she blow me away with accepting that award. And she’s 82!?!?!

MONTGOMERY: That was a dynamite speech by Moreno. I was surprised when I looked her up. She’s OLDER than Morgan Freeman.

O’NEIL: We all got Best Comedy Actor wrong, but I think we’ll all thrilled Alec Baldwin didn’t win AGAIN. Bye, bye, Alec. Please go home now and never emerge again.

MONTGOMERY: Is it just me, or have TV actors tonight kicked the asses of movie actors when it comes to giving acceptance speeches. Louis-Dreyfus, Burrell, Cranston — all dynamite on-stage compared to most of the film winners at recent award shows.

LICURIA: Cate Blanchett – can you please be Queen of Australia? Best speech of the night.

MONTGOMERY: I looked something else up: I didn’t realize this was Maggie Smith’s first individual SAG Award. She won twice before for ensemble (“Downton” and “Gosford Park”) but never before by herself.

BRIGHT: Can I have some of whatever McConaughey is on because he is out of this world in his acceptance speech…and I love watching it!

BRIGHT: Also, why is Meryl Streep attending this with Tracey Ullman?

MONTGOMERY: It looks like these acting races are starting to solidify. It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Blanchett, McConaughey, and Leto winning, and Nyong’o now looks like she’s comfortably ahead of Lawrence.

DIXON: Maggie Smith? Helen Mirren? Modern Family? SAG voters know as much about TV as my grandma.

  1. Lawrence out acted Nyongo by a mile. More complex, layered character. More challenging. Carried the movie. But she won last year. She’s just 23. And there are politics involved. Give it a couple of years and people will be saying Lawrence got robbed. Again.

  2. Sasha … If David O’ Russell is such a di*k why to top actors keeping working for and why do they givetheir best performances, his actors have sweep the 4 acting categories 2 years straight at the Oscar ‘s and almost making it 3 with 2 nods and a Oscar. American hustle won best ensemble and only Jennifer Lawrence was nominated , she would have won the SAG , if the race hustlers didn’t take dump on all the blogs after her win from Globes , New York critics , AATA and she is the only cast members to be nominated for every major award the season… and she has 3 Oscar nominations and won best actress but it all teen choice.

  3. American Hustle won best ensemble and only Jennifer Lawrence was nominated , so that tells what the SAGS thought of her performance
    .
    Let’s be honest she would have won the SAG , if the race hustlers didn’t take dump on all the blogs after her win from the Globes and nothing scares hollywood actors more then not being politically correct.

    New York critics , AATA , Globes and slew of others choose her as best supporting actress and she is the only cast member to be nominated for every major award this season , international or at home…

    Besides you know , 23 already 3 Oscar nominations and one win for best actress , unlike Lupta and the last 7 years 3 of which now making it 4 will all FIRST time nominated black actress taking home the Best Supporting Oscar, see a trend ..
