SAG AWARDS: THE COMPLETE PHOTO GALLERY

30, 2012 4:18pm

The big winners at last night’s SAG Awards were “The Help,” “The Artist,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Modern Family” and the guild itself, affirming that both of the largest acting unions, SAG and AFTRA, had cleared the path for a merger to an organization that would work for all actors.

While many, including us, were hoping that the SAG Awards, voted on by the acting guild, the largest group of voters of the Academy, would give some clearer indication of whether Meryl Streep or Michelle Williams would take home the Best Actress Oscar next month, the win by Viola Davis in that category means the statuette is certainly still up for grabs.

Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”) remained in front of a pack that includes Clooney and Pitt, while Octavia Spencer (“The Help”) and Christopher Plummer (“Beginners”) continue their stronghold on the supporting actor categories.

Thanks to SAG and Getty, here’s the complete gallery of images from last night’s celeb-studded event.

Alec Baldwin at the SAG Awards

Alec Baldwin posed with his Screen Actors Guild award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a TV Comedy Series in mid-jog on Sunday night, underscoring the emphasis he’s placed on exercise since being diagnosed with pre-diabetes last May. Baldwin recently lost 30 pounds through diet and exercise.

His new yoga instructor girlfriend Hilaria Thomas has also had a positive influence on his health and wellness practices. Speaking with Access Hollywood last week, he said that he and Thomas do “Pilates, spin [and] not as much yoga as I’d like.” He also revealed that he pays close attention to his daily activity levels, adding, “When we’re shooting ['30 Rock'] and I can’t work out, I just have to eat less. So I’m very conscious of that.”

Keep up the healthy habits, Alec!

Sofia Vergara, Meryl Streep and Jessica Chastain are all vying for awards

The Screen Actors Guild has announced its nominees for end of year honors. While Clooney, DiCaprio and Pitt are all heavyweights in the best acting category, Glenn Close, Meryl Streep, Tilda Swinton and Michelle Williams ensure the best actress category also packs a punch.

Prized also for the way they honor an ensemble, rather than the director or producer of a film or television show, the big film nominees are “The Help,” “The Descendants,” “The Artist,” “Midnight in Paris” and “Bridesmaids,” for television comedy “The Office,” “30 Rock,” “Modern Family,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Glee” are up for the top prize while television drama sees “Game of Thrones,” “Dexter,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Good Wife” and “Breaking Bad” fight it out.

As for the surprises, film critic favorites like “Drive,” “Hugo,” “Shame,” and “Young Adult” missed out on nominations, as did “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Is it too soon to read anything into this just yet???
