“I am an Actor” segment
presented by: Megan Mullally, Mike Myers, Geoffrey Owens and Yara Shahidi
CHRIS BEACHUM: Yeah for Geoffrey Owens! That was so smart of them to include him in the opening segment.
DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Bringing out Geoffrey Owens for the “I am an actor” segment at the beginning of the show was an inspired choice.
TONY RUIZ: Geoffrey Owens!!!! That’s freaking genius!!!
presented by: Megan Mullally
AMANDA SPEARS: I love Mullally but they don’t need a host for the SAG Awards.
MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Megan Mullally’s monologue was good, but she really shined in the “I am an actor” segment when she joked about having worked since the 1930s.
SUSAN WLOSCZYNA: Megan is sparkly but not quite sparkling. Ugh, too much patter.
Best TV Comedy Actor
presented by: Alec Baldwin and Megan Mullally
Tony Shalhoub (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”)
SUSAN WLOSCZYNA: Yay Tony Shaloub won. Boo, I did not pick him. Sweet. Love for Alan Arkin as Shaloub chokes up being up against his hero.
ROB LICURIA: Tony Shalhoub, first surprise of the night! The vote split was real, people!
AMANDA SPEARS: With this win Shalhoub become the only comedic actor to win for two different shows. But he needs a film role—he’s about to win a Grammy for “The Band’s Visit.”
KEVIN JACOBSEN: Boom! Called that vote-split between the “Barry” actors and “The Kominsky Method” actors. Vote-splitting happens in this category a lot!
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA I want to see Alison Brie walk up with that big bow behind her
Best TV Comedy Actress
presented by: Matt Bomer and Ricky Martin
Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”)
AMANDA SPEARS: Enjoy it while it lasts! JLD is coming for you!
ROB LICURIA: …and then Brosnahan wins despite potential vote splitting. Awards voters aren’t tired of her yet!
KEVIN JACOBSEN: With that, Rachel Brosnahan becomes the sixth TV actor to sweep award season (Emmy, Golden Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice, TCA) with one performance, following Bryan Cranston, Claire Danes, Tina Fey, Julianna Margulies, and Sarah Paulson.
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Every time she is at a podium, I keep hoping Rachel Brosnahan goes into a joke routine.
Presentation of Best Film Ensemble nominee: “A Star is Born”
presented by: Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott, Lady Gaga and Anthony Ramos
ROB LICURIA: Anthony Ramos, your suit might need a dry clean. There’s vomit on it I think.
KEVIN JACOBSEN: It’s weird seeing Bradley Cooper on an award show stage…
TOM O’BRIEN: I want Anthony Ramos’s tuxedo!
Best TV Comedy Ensemble
presented by: Tracy Morgan
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (accepted by: Tony Shalhoub)
ROB LICURIA: Tracy Morgan should be banned from presenting.
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Where’s Alex B? Harry Potter and Mr. Pink in a TV show. I’d watch that.
DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Tracy Morgan almost pulled an Elizabeth Taylor by opening the envelope early. Kudos to the winning cast he announced from “The Marvelous Mrs. Mavel.”
AMANDA SPEARS: Suck it HBO and Netflix! Amazon is the first to sweep the Comedy categories joining NBC.
Best Film Supporting Actress
presented by: Chris Pine
Emily Blunt (“A Quiet Place”)
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Chris Pine – are flood pants in?
TOM O’BRIEN: Blunt!!! Emily Blunt’s win just filled my heart.
MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Regina King just won the Oscar! Oh, and congrats Emily Blunt.
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Emily! Take that Academy Awards. Will she sign her speech?
AMANDA SPEARS: Regina King will be sending her flowers tomorrow! Best-case scenario!
KEVIN JACOBSEN: What a whirlwind week for Emily Blunt!
LUCA GILIBERTI: Wow, Emily Blunt finally won something!!!!
MATT NOBLE: Tremendous to see Blunt win for such a powerful performance in one of the year’s best films.
ROB LICURIA: I’m so happy for Emily Blunt. It punctuates how irritating her Oscar snub is. Called it!!! Woohoo!
Presentation of Best Film Ensemble nominee: “Black Panther”
presented by: Angela Bassett and Chadwick Boseman
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: How does Angela Bassett not age?
Best Film Supporting Actor
presented by: Robin Wright
Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”)
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: I love that Viggo and Mahershala color coordinated their suits.
AMANDA SPEARS: Co-stars even former co-stars should not present awards to each other. I didn’t really need a “House of Cards” reunion and it took all the suspense out of the category.
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Is Megan bound and gagged somewhere?
ROB LICURIA: Yeah, what exactly IS Megan Mullally hosting?
Best TV Movie/Limited Actor
presented by: Richard Madden and Keri Russell
Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace”)
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Darren Criss needs to build an extension on his house to store all his trophies.
ROB LICURIA: Darren Crizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Darren Criss can add the trophy room to his house next to his shiny tuxedos room.
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Megan’s back. And, yes, guilds are good. But I am gagging on the Gaga jokes.
Presentation of Best Film Ensemble nominee: “BlacKkKlansman”
presented by: Adam Driver and John David Washington
Best TV Movie/Limited Actress
presented by: Glenn Close and Michael Douglas
Patricia Arquette (“Escape at Dannemora”)
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Quick hide Olivia Colman’s bunnies from Glenn Close.
KEVIN JACOBSEN: YAS “Fatal Attraction” reunion! <3
DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Fantastic that they reunited Glenn Close and Michael Douglas, but it’s a little random to have them present the award for TV movie/miniseries actresses.
KEVIN JACOBSEN: Amy Adams don’t get no respect.
DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Poor Amy Adams, lost twice tonight when she was the front-runner both times. It’s weird that “Sharp Objects” hasn’t been embraced more this season.
LUCA GILIBERTI: Amy Adams not winning for Sharp Objects makes me extremely sad. This poor woman isn’t getting the recognition she deserves.
ROB LICURIA: Patricia Arquette wins the day after proclaiming “thank you Robert Mueller…”!!!
AMANDA SPEARS: Maybe Clarkson can give Arquette some “medicine” to help her give a better acceptance speech.
MARCUS JAMES DIXON: So happy I switched to Patricia Arquette two days ago! It’s rare, but sometimes last-minute changes really DO work in my favor.
MATT NOBLE: Amy Adams gave one of the best film or tv performances of the year in “Sharp Objects.” Hopefully she can rally at the Emmys.
Presentation of Best Film Ensemble nominee: “Crazy Rich Asians”
presented by: Henry Golding, Ken Jeong, Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh
CHARLIE BRIGHT: Michelle Yeoh is walking around like the royalty that she is!
AMANDA SPEARS: Poor Michelle Yeoh you should’ve been nominated for your scary evil performance.
Life Achievement Award to Alan Alda
presented by: Tom Hanks
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: The first time I laughed during the show was Hawkeye’s squat thrust joke.
CHARLIE BRIGHT: All Alan Alda really had to do is smile and he lights up the room. Congratulations to one of the finest people to have graced both the big and small screen!
MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Alan Alda’s clip package was great! A bit too much ‘M*A*S*H’ though.
TONY RUIZ: Am I alone in noticing all the explicit sexual jokes in Alan Alda’s clips package?
CHRIS BEACHUM: Alan Alda is one of my all-time favorites! And he proved why tonight.
presented by: Megan Mullally and Charles C. Stevenson Jr.
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: I knew she put “must sing” in her contract for hosting.
TONY RUIZ: Smitty for Oscar host!!!
Best TV Drama Actor
presented by: Awkwafina and Laverne Cox
Jason Bateman (“Ozark”)
CHRIS BEACHUM: Jason Bateman! I got it right for once!!
KEVIN JACOBSEN: Agh! Jason Bateman. First TV award I got wrong!
LUCA GILIBERTI: I switched to Bateman a few days ago, wow. I got my two super bets!
Presentation of Best Film Ensemble nominee: “Bohemian Rhapsody”
presented by: Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Rami Malek, Joe Mazzello
Best TV Drama Actress
presented by: Antonio Banderas
Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”)
LUCA GILIBERTI: That clip just shows why Elisabeth Moss should have won this award.
KEVIN JACOBSEN: Sandra Oh! She also won the Golden Globe and SAG Award for Grey’s Anatomy back in the day. Still hasn’t won that Emmy.
MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Sandra Oh always give the best acceptance speeches. She has the Emmy locked up now, right?
TOM O’BRIEN: Oh is so right. It’s in the work.
presented by: Scott Bakula
CHARLIE BRIGHT: Seeing Bob Einstein and Harry Anderson both brought a smile to my face and a tear in my eye at the same time.

“This is Us” (accepted by: Mandy Moore)

Best Film Actor
presented by: Rachel Weisz
Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”)
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: WOWOWOWOWOW Rami!!!
MATT NOBLE: Malek has turned the heat on Bale now for the Oscars.
KEVIN JACOBSEN: Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper’s continued losses have actually made me feel bad for these glamorous movie stars with great careers.
Best Film Actress
presented by: Gary Oldman
Glenn Close (“The Wife”)
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Yay! Glenn very cool!
AMANDA SPEARS: And now Close will finally win her long long overdue Oscar!
TOM O’BRIEN: Looks like we’ve got three categories fairly set. Can King come back after the SAG snub?
CHRIS BEACHUM: Glenn Close just won her 1st Oscar! No matter what BAFTA has to say.
TOM O’BRIEN: God, Glenn gives good speeches.
MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Glenn Close really likes this “two eyes” metaphor. Meh.
Best Film Ensemble
presented by: Jodie Foster
“Black Panther” (accepted by: Chadwick Boseman)
TOM O’BRIEN: Now that’s an award to a real ensemble!
SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: OK, I got some right finally.
