The Best Moments of the SAG Awards 2018

which was intended to be a best, worst in addition to weirdest recap of Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, however, honestly, there weren’t any worst moments. in addition to nothing especially weird went down. Clocking in at a brisk two hours, which was an all-around…fine show. A bit boring — in addition to entirely too predictable — however filled with plenty of lovely bits, too. Here were the best moments of the evening:

Kristen Bell as Host: As far as awards show hosts go, Bell was a breath of fresh air as the SAG Awards first-ever host, keeping the night trucking along with unyielding chipperness. Her opening monologue hit the right notes of humor in addition to pathos in addition to her various appearances throughout the broadcast were never unwelcome, which not all hosts can say. (The bit with Dax Shepard in addition to Greta Gerwig was corny, however also very cute!)

Our favorite of Bell’s jokes? When Maya Rudolph set her up with, “I definitely like your show about living in hell. What’s which called again?” in addition to Bell responded, “Oh my god, thank you so much. which’s called 2018!”

The All-Female Presenters: Maybe just do all-female awards shows? Time’s Up remained a big topic of conversation here in addition to the SAG voters honored the movement by enlisting actresses to do most of the presenting for the night. We loved the pairings too: Goldie Hawn in addition to Kate Hudson, of course. Gina Rodriguez in addition to Megan Mullally. Connie Britton in addition to Mandy Moore.

in addition to Especially Niecy Nash: Nash in addition to Olivia Munn did so well presenting the SAG nominations which they were actually asked to host the Critics’ Choice Awards in addition to present together again tonight. Their bit (not knowing the nominee’s work) didn’t reinvent the wheel, however Nash definitely sold which, especially her confusion over whether Peter Dinklage plays a dragon on Game of Thrones. If Bell doesn’t return, which looks like SAG may have their next host. (in addition to while Munn’s drag about no Asian actors being nominated didn’t land as solidly as Natalie Portman’s “all-male nominees,” which didn’t go unnoticed.)

Sterling K. Brown’s Acceptance Speech, Per Usual: After creating history at the Globes, the which is actually Us star did which once more here, becoming the first black actor to win the SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama. which which’s taken which long is actually, truly, an embarrassment; nonetheless, which couldn’t have happened to a more deserving actor. “To all those people out there still hustling, trying to make which,” he said during his speech. “The fame won’t sustain you. The money won’t sustain you. The love? Keep which love alive, which will keep you going.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus creating History: Louis-Dreyfus was absent through the show — having only recently completed her final round of chemotherapy — however her repeat win for Female Actor in a Comedy Series (in addition to being part of Veep‘s winning ensemble) officially makes her the most-awarded actor in SAG history. She delivered something of an acceptance speech on Twitter, writing, “I wish I could have been @SAGawards tonight however have to admit which’s pretty fun to watch in my pj’s. So honored to win. So proud to be a union member. So happy for my @VeepHBO bozos for winning ensemble award. Miss being at the table with you all. How was the chicken?”

Morgan Freeman’s Life Achievement: If Rita Moreno, who presented Morgan his award, didn’t already have a successful TV series, we could be actively campaigning to see these two on our televisions every week. Anyway, once he took the stage, in response to the compliments directed his way, Morgan joked, “I know you’re just saying which because which’s true.” After some early bizarreness talking to someone within the audience, he kept the speech brief in addition to breezy in addition to ended by creating a point about the SAG trophies: “which works through the back. through the front, which’s gender specific. Maybe I began something…”

in addition to at Least One different Man Finally Said Something: After not an individual actor said anything in support of Time’s Up at the Globes or even acknowledged the movement happening around them, Three Billboards winner Sam Rockwell did, thanking co-star Frances McDormand in addition to then announcing, “I stand with you in addition to all of the incredible women in which room who are trying to make things better. which’s long overdue.” (No thoughts, Gary Oldman?)

A Big Win for which is actually Us: The which is actually Us cast beat out The Crown, Game of Thrones in addition to The Handmaid’s Tale to win Ensemble Drama Series, perhaps the only true surprise of the evening. No matter how you might feel about the win, no one could deny what a joy which was watching the cast react to which. Onstage, which was Milo Ventimiglia who spoke for them, very thoroughly thanking their crew, through the writers to the P.A.s, in addition to dedicating the win to their fans: “For the people which watch with us every Tuesday night in addition to embrace the show which reflects positivity in addition to expect in addition to inclusion, we love you.”

Brie Larson in addition to Lupita Nyong’o’s Teleprompter Fail: What could an awards show be without a teleprompter fail? in addition to can you think of two more charming people to handle which than these two? “Here are the nominees for actor– Well, you just passed, OK! I expect you know what the category is actually, because they just passed which,” Larson laughed, as Nyong’o fumbled her own line. Larson groaned, “which is actually going so well.”

in addition to the Signoff through Frances McDormand’s Acceptance Speech: “Bye!”
