Another day, another prestigious awards ceremony in which Hollywood takes the opportunity to pat itself on the back and say: “Well done, you did a great job this year with all those movies and stuff.”
And last night it was the Screen Actors Guild’s turn to present an array of valuable totems to all your favourites, including Jennifer Lawrence, who won for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, and Daniel Day-Lewis, who won for Lincoln, the Steven Spielberg movie in which he did his trademark “good acting” as the 16th President of the United States.
Awards were also presented to Tommy Lee Jones for his role in Lincoln, and to Anne Hathaway, who sung her way to glory in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables (and is considered a sure contender for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards).
This year’s SAG Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Dick Van Dyke, who most people will know for playing a bumbling cockney chimney sweep in Disney’s Mary Poppins. For a full list of the results, you can read them below:
