It’s awards season and the SAG Awards 2019 are a must to watch. The two hour run time of the show features the stars accepting their awards and nothing else.
2019’s edition was featured on Sunday night and it followed the trend. The Screen Actors Guild Awards gave minute-by-minute star power, helmed by Megan Mullally from Will & Grace. Here’s a look at the worst and best moments of the night.
Best Moments of the Night
GEOFFREY Owen’s warm welcome
The view has changed completely since Geoffrey Owens, Cosby Show alum, took a job of a cashier at Trader Joe last year. The headlines aimed at embarrassing the successful actor, but things ended up differently.
The headlines ended up getting the actor new offers while he took up side jobs. His “I Am an Actor” intro got an enthusiastic applause. Owens said,
Somewhere in the middle of the road of my life, I found myself in the dark wood of unemployment and debt. But instead of switching careers like a sane person, I took a job at the local Trader Joe’s to see if I could hang in there with my career. And it’s actually worked out pretty well. I’m Geoffrey Owens, and I am an actor.
JOHN KRASINSKI AND EMILY BLUNT’S LOVE STORY
Fans of The Office may be rooting for Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert, the real life love story of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt is even sweeter. Emily Blunt got the award for the category of female actor for A Quiet Place. She was honoured to accept the prize and dedicated her award to her co-star, life partner and director. Krasinski was moved by Emily’s words.
BLACK PANTHER WON AN OUTSTANDING ENSEMBLE CAST IN A MOVIE
The unexpected win of the movie was the top prize of the night. It was even more fulfilling than the acceptance speech given by Chadwick Boseman.
RICKY MARTIN AND LADY GAGA OWN THE RED CARPET
Ricky Martin and Lady Gaga were the prom king and queen of the SAG Awards red carpet. The two linked up before the show and made the most of their moment glamming up.
