SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS 2015
Two big awards shows down this season (Golden Globes and SAGs,) one (Oscars) to go.
I hope you got to stick with me on Sunday evening, while I live-tweeted the SAGs. I got a lot of positive feedback once again, so I hope to do the same for the Oscars.
When I used to do my show, Karen’s Restaurant Revue, I hated when people would steal my material and use it as their own. I would not even tell the same story more than once; it made me feel like I was stealing from myself! So, I kind-of don’t want to reprint my tweets here; same feeling.
But, only because I took so many goony pictures to illustrate my tweets, then didn’t want to take the time to post them with said tweets, I may “borrow” some of those tweets now, to go along with the pix I want to share with you. So, if you follow me on twitter and, therefore, already read some, please forgive me for repeating. (But most of this is thoughts I didn’t have time, or inclination, to live-tweet.)
And if you don’t want to miss any more of my bon mots in the future, please follow me, too. @MajorCelebrity
Okay, so here my thoughts, some new, some from twitter. The pix may not be near their corresponding paragraph this time, so please read the captions to see what I was trying to show you.
[Note: I know some of these comments sound really mean, but they’re not intended that way. It’s just my basic observations, that I usually say to only Mr. X.]
ARRIVALS ON E!
I guess Ryan Seacrest is too big for the SAGs now, and Giuliana Rancic is too weak (from being so Olive Oyl-looking) to show-up.
Eddie Redmayne seems like such a sweet guy.
Who’s Kelly McDonald, and what is up with her left knee? And why would she wear a short dress with a knee like that, knowing the camera pans the whole body!?!
When that creepy Ross interviewer guy asked Ellar Coltrane (from Boyhood) what he wanted to do in the future, and the kid said that he wanted to continue creating art, meaning acting, of course!,) Ross asked him, “What kind of art do you want to create?” What an idiot!
Tatiana Maslany (of Orphan Black,) seems so nice. And she wore a really cute dress, especially for the middle-of-the-road (as far as awards shows go) occasion.
Good for Julia Louis-Dreyfus to be so honest about how bad it feels to not win.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine has the worst-looking cast.
How do women not get manicures for this??? I’m talking to you, Tatiana Massey and Emilia Clarke. (Some others, as well, but I wasn’t taking names at the time.)
I was shocked by Julianna Margulies‘ filthy hair! I would fire my stylist if she told me to wear my hair like that!
Natalie Dormer was really paying attention to the inane questions being asked by creepy, awful-interviewer, Maria Menounos. Good for her!
When they showed Taryn Manning‘s hands, (without the rest of her,) I thought it was a meth addict! Then they showed her full self, and I was sure of it! How weakly-looking she is.
Keira Knightly seems so nice.
How stupid to show major nominee, Michael Keaton, Mindy Kaling’s nothing tweet about his son! How was he supposed to react?! Idiotic of E!
THE ACTUAL SHOW
Jennifer Aniston‘s boobs were popping and hanging, but she did her opening bit well.
Zach Galifanakis‘ opening bit was funny. (He was even more amusing during the cast acceptance speech for Birdman.)
Good speech by the “crazy eyes” woman.
I’ve always found William H. Macy so repulsive, and his show, Shameless, does not look like a comedy. I guess the really funny other four guys in the Comedy category cancelled each other out.
That was so classless of presenter Jared Leto to call winner Mark Ruffalo a “no show.” I’m sure there was a good reason he didn’t make it. (Turns-out he’s in London working on another film!)
Mr. X is my witness–I predicted almost every winner. I had several criteria, but I’m not going to list them here. But, feel free to ask me if you ever run into me.
But, even though I voted for Eddie Redmayne, I was shocked that Michael Keaton didn’t win. That was just about the only one I predicted wrong. Michael was a close second for me, but I thought my fellow SAG members would vote for the old, “comeback” guy over the young up-and-comer.
