The 15th SAG AWARDS WINNERS

I caught the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards midway. Well more likely the significant part since they were already handing awards for the movies section. For the TV part, I don't really watch "30 Rock" and "Mad Men". I did get hooked on "House, M.D." when it first started then slowly lost interest as Dr. House got more neurotic and really irritating to watch. But I do follow religiously Sally Field as Nora Walker on "Brothers and Sisters" and I'm glad she won.

As expected, Heath Ledger won as best supporting actor for his role as the Joker in "The Dark Knight". His award was accepted by a rather emotional Gary Oldman. Meryl Streep's win was a pleasant surprise for her. She even joked she didn't even bother to buy a gown. She was clad in an elegant black ensemble consisting of a oversized blouse and pants. Her role as a nun, the principal in a Catholic school accusing a priest of misconduct in "Doubt" bagged her the award. Another 'upset' was the award given to Sean Penn as the gay activist Harvey Milk in "Milk". They probably thought that Mickey Rourke would surely win for his comeback movie "The Wrestler". Kate Winslet on the other hand was probably a shoo in for her poignant portrayal of Hanna Schmitz in the Holocaust thriller "The Reader" for the best supporting actress category. The best ensemble cast in a motion picture naturally went to "Slumdog Millionaire".
