One of the great things about this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards was the wide variety of films and television programs that won. Nothing dominated, and there were several newcomers to the stage.
The tribute to Dick Van Dyke was fantastic, and he showed that he is very energetic and in great spirits. Maybe a sharp director will hire him for a juicy role that will allow him to complete his EGOT with an Oscar.
Also just a terrific job by the people who assembled the "In Memoriam" segment.
The excitement of the "Downton Abbey" cast.
Yet another win for Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), who was great in the role of Jack Donaghy, but has stopped all other funny men from taking home a SAG award for the past seven years.
With the strong possibility of his "Silver Linings Playbook" co-star Lawrence winning, there is no way that Robert De Niro should have been presenting the Best Film Actress award.
Dev Patel was the only person representing the large nominated cast of "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."
Only five members of the winning "Downton Abbey" cast attending (out of 22 total).
