For my wrap-up of the Screen Actors Guild Awards program, let’s just dwell on this for a moment, shall we?
Washington Post (thank goodness someone got this on film!)
What else is there to say? That single moment made up for an otherwise lackluster evening. Yes, there were a few nice moments (Jennifer Lawrence’s speech, Ben Affleck’s adorable shock and awe), but the whole ceremony was a little bit dullsville for me. Perhaps in part because the Redhead Quotient just wasn’t very high.
Dear Julianne Moore,
Congratulations, of course, on another well-deserved win. But can we talk about this dress? The black and white is good – clearly a favorite for you this season. But those flowers? Are weird. Good hair, though.
Dear Jessica Chastain,
You are quickly becoming one of my favorite people. In Roots of Desire, Marion Roach says that though many non-redheads will try to steer us away from red clothing, any true ginger knows to go straight for the scarlet. I’m so very glad you did. Also, you introduced the In Memoriam montage so gracefully, which is more than can be said for just about any other presenter of the evening. Excellent work all around.
Dear Amy Nuttall,
I had to IMDB you just to find your name. I couldn’t even find a good picture of just you and your Actor. But, hey, I love Downton Abbey, and you have a nice smile, a nice dress, and your hair looks good. So I’m happy to be able to include you in this little round-up. Plus, your collective win made Jon Hamm appear on national TV with an I’m-Jealous-But-I-Have-To-Hide-It look, and that was pretty great. Congratulations!
