Lupita Nyong'o and her colorful SAG Awards gone made our night. Check out the red carpet pics of the SAG nominees and presenters inside...
Lupita Nyong'o walked down the red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium Sunday night for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She caught every eye in the place with her colorful Elie Saab gown complete with watercolor flowers and stripes.
And as usual, her skin, hair and makeup were simply radiant.
The Oscar winner presented as well alongside Jared Leto. She always looks adorbs in her glasses. Nice.
SAG Award winners Laverne Cox and Danielle Brooks snapped a pic together on the carpet. The OITNB stars were primped to perfection in their red carpet looks.
Laverne rocked a white satin Johanna Johnson gown with Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Judith Leiber clutch. And her big diamond ring was from Forever Mark Diamonds.
Meanwhile, Danielle kept it sophisticated in a Christian Siriano gown for her big night.
And SAG winner Viola Davis and her stark white Max Mara gown:
And OITNB star Uzo Adubacopped the first award of the night for Outstanding Female Actor in a Comedy Series. Right before copping the Award for Ensemble Cast in a Comedy Series with her Netflix show castmates. Nice!
Uzo copped her first SAG Award in a bright yellow Angel Sanchez dress, Brian Atwood shoes, a Kotur clutch and ForeverMark jewels.
The SAG Award for FEMALE ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES goes to...Viola Davis! And she's also a winner in the acceptance speech department. Check out her powerful words inside...
Viola Davis has another Award to add to her collection. And it's all thanks to her amazing job as Mrs. Annalise Keating (well, widow Keating) on "How To Get Away With Murder".
While accepting her SAG Award tonight in Hollywood, she spoke on Shonda Rhimes and those behind the show allowing a mysterious and sexy woman...to be played by a 49-year-old black woman.
All right, when I tell my daughter stories at night, inevitably a few things happen. Number one, I use my imagination. I always start with life and then I build from there. And then the other thing that happens is she always says, “Mommy, can you put me in the story?”
And you know, it starts from the top up. So, I’d like to thank Paul Lee, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Bill D’Elia, and Peter Nowalk, for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned, African-American woman that looks like me.
Thank you to the Screen Actors Guild. Thank you to Estelle and Lisa Costello, and Michael Adler, CAA, for having my back. And thank you to all the people who love me exactly how God made me. And that’s my beautiful husband, Julius, my four-year-old daughter at home, Genesis, and my mother, May Alice Davis. Thank you so much.
Major congrats are in order for Uzo Aduba and the cast of "Orange Is The New Black"! Deets inside on their SAG Award wins....
Two of the first SAG Awards of the night went to YBF Chick Uzo Aduba and the YBF filled cast of OITNB! After the ladies walked the carpet at the Shrine Auditorium in Hollywood tonight, they racked up a few Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Uzo won the first award of the night for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her work on the Netflix show. And her heartfelt speech revealed that she had actually quit acting...on the day she got the role as "Crazy Eyes". Clearly the universe had other plans for her.
Her speech is below:
Oh, my God! I really truly do not know what I want to say. I just – I want to say thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild for this incredible honor. I want to thank Jenji Kohan for writing a show like this and putting something like this on television, not just for myself, but for our incredible team of actors, to be seen in such a beautiful way.
I want to thank Netflix and Lionsgate – oh my gosh – specifically Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Nina, Lisa, Trim, Neri, Kevin, Sandra. I want to say a huge massive thank to our cast, without whom… without whom this is not possible. I love you guys so desperately, so much. This is not done without you, at all, any step of the way.
I want to thank my friends. I want to thank my family, and finally, I just really, really, really truly want to say that the day I got this job was the day I had stopped acting. And to be in a room with all of you amazing human beings, amazing talents… for what I respect and love so much, is really truly the greatest honor. Thank you so very much. God bless you all.
And that wasn't all. Uzo and her co-stars Laverne Cox, Danielle Brooks (above) and more won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Uzo gave yet another heartfelt acceptance speech on behalf of the entire group who was also on stage:
Thank you so much. Thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild. Thank you so much. We want to say a big massive, massive thank you to Jenji Kohan, without whom this is not at all possible. We want to say a massive thank you also to Netflix, Lionsgate, to the family there. We want to thank you everyone who’s tuned into our show, who have watched our show and supported it in such a brilliant way. We are incredibly grateful for this tremendous honor.
