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!
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? TVGuide.com 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
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.)
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.
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.
