7 Reasons Why the SAG
Awards Rocked! Plus,
See the Full Winners


Another day, another awards show and last night’s SAG Awards did not disappoint in the style or entertainment stakes.

After the Golden Globes last Sunday, which was swiftly followed by the Sundance film festival, any celeb would be forgiven for not being on form at the lesser-celebrated awards. But not the Hollywood A-listers. They were out in full force in all their finest and did not disappoint viewers with their antics.

Here are 7 reasons why the SAG awards rocked.

1. Jennifer Lawrence’s "armpit vaginas"

It’s not an awards show if JLaw doesn’t say or do something ridiculous that makes us love her all the more and last night was no different. When Giuliana Rancic asked the Hunger Games star about her sequined Christian Dior dress she said: "I know I have armpit fat, it’s OK…it’s armpit vaginas."

2. Anna Gunn’s purse

Breaking Bad’s Skyler thought she would pay homage to the show that made her famous by sporting a custom-made clutch bag with the familiar logo of the Br and Ba symbols. We want one! Like, now.

3. Cate Blanchett calling Matthew McConaughey out

Unlike the Golden Globes and the Oscars, the SAGs don’t play music over winner’s speeches to signal its time to shut up and get off, but a few actors took this a bit too much for granted last night (We are looking at you Matthew!). When the teleprompter told Cate she only had 29 seconds to speak she sternly said: "I've been away from the film industry for a long time making theater...29 seconds?! Matthew McConaughey spoke about Neptune and I think I can have five seconds!"

4. Kerry Washington’s baby bump

We’re pretty sure no actress has ever bared their pregnant midriff at an awards show before, so kudos to Kerry for even risking it as it could have gone horribly wrong. But of course, she rocked it!

5. Everything about Rita Moreno

Not only did the 82-year-old look amazing when she received her Life Achievement Award, but she also rocked a plunging neckline and a black and gold leather studded dress. Apart from looking awesome, she dropped an F bomb, flirted with Morgan Freeman, had the energy of a 20-year-old and sang her acceptance speech. Rita, we salute you.

6. Everything about Bryan Cranston

Asides from Aaron Paul, is there any man more perfect than Bryan? When collecting his award for Best Actor in a Drama Series, he sang the first line of his (very humble) speech, then later
thanked the rest of the Breaking Bad cast, saying: “We have the nicest bunch of white supremacist Nazis I have ever worked with. I swear to you I would kill you all over again.”

7. Everything about Lupita Nyong’o:

Her dress, her hair, her manicure, her makeup, her acceptance speech, the crowd’s reaction to her win. This is the girl to watch in 2014.
