Tonight was the night for the members of the Screen Actors Guild to gather, play drinking games and honor one another. Just in case you missed the show, we’re here to give you some of the night’s highlights. Let’s get started, shall we?
- The cast of Bridesmaids‘ drinking game: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy took the stage, but not without a little booze. These funny women took it upon themselves to introduce the crowd to their drinking game. It went something like this: Drink every time you hear the word “Scorsese.” Watching Melissa McCarthy throw back what appeared to be vodka (straight from the bottle) was definitely a highlight of the evening.
- Dick Van Dyke‘s heartfelt speech to Mary Tyler Moore: As he presented the Life Achievement Award to Moore, Dick Van Dyke kicked things off with, “Hi everybody, I’m what’s left of Dick Van Dyke.” And after reminiscing over years spent together, he kissed Moore on the cheek and left the crowd on their feet. Those two haven’t missed a step.
- Viola Davis beats Meryl Streep: After winning for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, Davis gave a heartfelt and powerful speech about those she admires (Streep included) and her message to the kids: “Dream big and dream fierce.” Was that a tear in Angelina Jolie’s eye? I think so.
- Betty White is STILL funny: Betty White won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series and took the stage (thanks to the help of the handsome Kyle Chandler) only to caress the male statue and say, “Oh I remember you, sweetheart.” Betty White and the SAG statue . . . a classic romance.
- Christopher Plummer gets better with age: With a win for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, Plummer began his speech with, “I just can’t tell you what fun I’ve had being a member of the world’s second oldest profession.” And after exuding charm and looking fantastic in his blue suit, he thanked his “long-suffering wife Elaine, who 43 years ago came to my rescue and saved my life.” And sigh.
And my worst moment of the night goes to Kyle Chandler losing in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. All of my fellow fans of Friday Night Lights know just how powerful Chandler was in that role. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose . . . right? Coach Taylor forever.
