Screen Actors Guild Awards

2007, TV Show


February 1, 2007: Ben Franklin

Hello, this is Kate Flannery, the boozy redhead from the best show on TV, The Office. OK, maybe not the best show, but the best ensemble of a comedy series, according to the Screen Actors Guild. We won, fans. We won, and itfeels good and crazy, and I'm sore. (That award weighs 35 pounds!)I am here to talk about "Ben Franklin," the episode airing this week. There is a shower for Phyllis, but the big news is... Meredith yells at Angela!!!!! A new moody Meredith moment. Can you say alcoholic? I knew you could. How about that, sports fans? This is a funny episode written by Mindy Kaling aka Kelly Kapoor. It was fun to tell my old pal Angela to shut up. I am contractually obligated to keep my mouth shut, but they are showing this clip in the promos, so I'm cool.The new episodes have been a lot of fun to shoot — especially because we just found out that we are going to be back for a full fourth season. Ahh, job security. It keeps me very grateful.Speaking of grateful... we won a SAG... read more

9:54: The Queen takes her throne. Helen Mirren beats out Meryl, Kate, Judi and Penélope and might as well have an award statue made to look like her by now. 9:57: Annette Bening wasted no time announcing the cast of Little Miss Sunshine for the final award. I want to thank Abigail Breslin for not repeating her pageant dance tonight. I want to thank Greg Kinnear for closing out the show with a few funny remarks ("Thanks, Volkswagen... "). And I want to thank the Screen Actors Guild for having a two-hour award show. Good night! read more

Backstage at the SAG Awards: the Winners, the No-shows and a Big Ray of Sunshine

The Office's winning ensemble meet the press.

Who was conspicuously MIA from the Screen Actors Guild Awards press room? Who was afraid he would bore the reporters to tears? And which star of The Office claims to have been the model for the Actor statue's backside? was backstage at Sunday night's 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, and here's a timeline of the highs and lows from the press room. 8:00 pm/ET: The show's broadcast begins, but there's no audio coming from the room's monitor. Michael, the friendly press-room moderator, assures us the problem is going to be fixed momentarily. (No word on if the sound will be intentionally cut if Grey's Anatomy nominee Isaiah Washington shows up and tries to grab the microphone.) 8:02: The sound snafu is resolved just in time to hear most of read more

9:48: Reese always looks great. She could use a little lip color, though. Rachel McAdams looks adorable next to her boyfriend nominee Ryan Gosling. What's up with the pink streaks, though? Eh, I'll let it go.... They should have been together since The Notebook, so I'm glad those two found each other again.9:50: Forest Whitaker gets a standing ovation for his lead acting performance. In fact, I think Leo DiCaprio was the first to jump to his feet. Forest is so soft-spoken for someone who played such an empowering role! Don't worry, Forest, I don't like public speaking, either. You should try blogging, it's a lot easier. read more

9:38: The presenters are funny tonight. Cate Blanchett handled her bloop well, and Greg Kinnear is so comfortable up there, he could have had a beer in his hand.9:42: Jennifer Hudson is having one hell of a year. Wasn't she just standing in front of Simon Cowell, like, two days ago? Seems like it. Hey, if she can make an entire movie theater applaud a song she's singing on screen, I think that deserves a few awards. (At least that's what happened when I went to see Dreamgirls.) read more

9:33: Teri Hatcher, have a bagel tomorrow. Thanks. I wish I was a 24 junkie, because it just looks like an amazing show, but at this point, I'd have to hibernate for weeks (months?) just to catch up. 9:35: You know what, I cut the L-VAT wire. (Don't worry, Sabrina, I don't technically know what it is, either.) McDreamy, McSteamy and... McGoddess? Ellen, what is going on there? With an oversized collar and gigantic hoop earrings apparently come a disastrous speech. I think you just stuttered more than Meredith. Still, congrats to the Grey's cast. Well done, you nutty docs. read more

9:20: Steve Carell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus were a great presenting match. But it's all about "anal fissure" funnyman Hugh Laurie tonight. Another Brit giving another well-spoken acceptance. Sorry, I mean "smoooooth." I really think I could listen to him throw out the laughs for hours.9:23: Dennis Haysbert ends all the chuckles with the "in memoriam" moment. I'll miss Peter Boyle's "Holy crap" shouts and James Brown's crazy clothing choices. But back to the awards.... read more

9:13: Does anyone else think immediately of St. Elmo's Fire when they see Emilio Estevez? No? Just me? All things serious... Bobby is filled with familiar faces but I'm not sure it'll take the win.9:15: Did Mary-Louise Parker borrow that dress from Mischa Barton? Nevermind. Christian Slater's eyebrows are now distracting me; doesn't he always look surprised?9:17: Of course Grey's picked the "va jay jay" clip. Congrats, Doctor Bailey! There's applause here in the office. She looks stunning! Ha… what was that mumble about rehab now? Hilarious. She may need a stretcher in a minute, though, because I'm not sure she's actually breathing. read more

9:01: The history of Julie Andrews is still rolling, and I'm actually learning a lot. Did anyone else know about her books and donations? 9:04: Dick Van Dyke's bow tie is huge! But how can you not love him, right? Who better to present the life-achievement award to Julie than him? Eddie Murphy's right... the British actors do sound really distinguished when giving their speeches — Julie didn't even flinch. Patrick Dempsey looks bored, though. Sit up straight, doc, the camera is always watching! read more

8:55: Anne Hathaway always looks great when her hair is pulled back like that. But tonight is not all about Prada this and Prada that... the princess helps us honor Julie Andrews (adorable childhood photos!). Who can better stare into a man's eyes so passionately and sing her heart out? Mary Poppins will always hold a special place in my heart. Ah, but the hills are alive here.... The pizza has arrived! Now, where is Mary Tyler Moore.... read more
