9:54PM: Daniel Day Lewis just dedicated his Best Actor SAG award to Heath Ledger. Unparalleled acting ability aside, you heard it here first, Lewis just sealed his Oscar win.
9:39PM: Ruby Dee wins for Female Supporting Actress in a Drama for her work in AMERICAN GANGSTER. Which would excite me more if I knew who Ruby Dee was or if I’d seen AMERICAN GANGSTER.
9:36PM: Viggo Mortensen or Jeremy Irons? You decide.
9:27PM: Is their some sort of unwritten rule requiring every award show’s ‘In Memoriam’ to use the soundtrack to THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION?
9:25PM: Queen Latifah wins for Best Actress in a TV Movie or Miniseries. Unfortunately, she is not in attendance and thus will not be bringing down da house.
9:18PM: Is it wrong that I’m sometimes okay when an actor isn’t in attendance to accept an award?
9:10PM: Charles Durning receives a lifetime achievement award. Offers up a classy short and sweet acceptance speech. Future winners take note.
8:53PM: Wait a tick! All the glitz and glamour of the SAG awards is really a rouse in order to teach us about the Guild’s history. Memo to SAG. If I wanted to learn, I wouldn’t be watching TV.
8:51PM: Best Ensemble in a TV Comedy goes to THE OFFICE. Can you really argue with the brilliance of the Dunder Mifflin denizens. Well, I’m going to try. Love THE OFFICE. But they’ve already won. 30 ROCK’s was robbed. Dot Com, Grizz are not going to be happy.
8:49PM: HBO’s Jeanne Tripplehorn presents with SHOWTIME’s Michael C. Hall… awkward.
8:42PM: The SAG Awards finally do what every other award show on the planet couldn’t seem to manage to do: Ensure Tony Shaloub walks away empty handed for MONK! Congrats Alec Baldwin.
8:40PM: Tina Fey wins. How badly do I want her to take out her acceptance speech and say…. I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. (Note: First Writer’s Guild Thank You. Tina Fey, you’re all class.)
8:27PM: Anyone else mad that THE SOPRANOS walked away with Best Ensemble in a drama over MAD MEN? Get it… because the show’s called MAD MEN! (Yes I know what you’re thinking, why is this TV Addict not a member of the WGA yet?)
8:23PM: Commercial Break #1, Still waiting for that first WGA shout out.
8:15PM: If THE SOPRANOS are going to walk away with everything, please tell me now so I can switch over to THE SIMPSONS.
8:10PM: Zac Efron Actor, Debra Messing Cougar.
8:00PM: I’m sitting on my couch, watching a bunch of really good looking people make me laugh on television. My name is Daniel, I’m an actor.. oh wait…a TV Addict. Pretty smart opening. Wonder which WGA member came up with that idea?
