At any award show, for every sartorial winner, there’s always a disaster to balance it all out. The 2011 SAG Awards were no exception. Our 10 best dressed ladies (photos) sparkled, but unfortunately, there was also some fashion fails. Leading the pack was Kim Kardashian, who needs to realize that a lone bedazzled boob is never a good idea.
We’d like to offer this gallery as constructive criticism because we like every single actress on this list of style shame. Especially Jane Lynch, who, as Sue Sylvester, could totally kick our asses. Claire Danes is surprisingly on this list too—and you’ll see why.

It was SAG time last night. The Screen Actors Guild Awards had some bigger winners, both fashion and otherwise. Natalie Portman belonged to both lists, looking fabulous in a white Azzaro column gown, and winning Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a leading role for Black Swan. Colin Firth won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a leading role for The Kings Speech. Look at a full list of the SAG Awards winners and nominees here.
In terms of fashion, no one surprised as more than Tina Fey who knocked it out of the park in a red lace Oscar de la Renta confection. And though we love Modern Family, young Sarah Hyland has never been on our radar until now. She looked stunning in a tangerine Max Mara Elegante gown. Mila Kunis was reminiscent of Michelle Obama in crimson and black Alexander McQueenbeauty. We’d also like to add that Susan Sarandon makes us go green with envy. Seriously… that woman is not turning 65 this year.

Jeff Bridges has that rare quality of being a legacy in a major Hollywood dynasty — his father Lloyd had a storied acting career, brother Beau has been in the business all his life — who is also completely un-Hollywood. Today’s Jeff Bridges renaissance started with his Oscar-winning role in Crazy Heart and it’s continued in all it’s fully-bearded glory with his second consecutive Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for True Grit and the hit Tron: Legacy. To pay homage to a man whose career is as diverse as his facial hair, we dug through the archives to find the most amazing shots of Bridges throughout the years. Scouring from the 70’s on, we realized that this guy has a love for groovy jackets and well-groomed mustaches no matter what decade. It’s pretty clear that The Dude has style.
Looks like we’re in for one wacky Oscar show next month. The Academy Awards promo above finally gives us a glimpse at the chemistry between James Franco and Anne Hathaway, with the pair practicing their choreography and doing an emergency “wardrobe malfunction” drill. We always knew these two were unusually young to be hosting this show, but watching these cuties shriek and shout really drives the point home. Hopefully the gamble will pay off—we’d hate for them to have to wake up Billy Crystal for next year’s ceremony.
Hollywood is full of grateful quotes from 2011’s Oscar nominees, but first-time nominee Mark Ruffalo(the sexy sperm donor in The Kids Are All Right) offered one exceptionally sweet story about how he found out. “I didn’t know the nominations were going on today,” he told Variety. “I was driving the kids to school and my mom and wife called and told me I was nominated, so it was a great surprise.” While fellow first-time Christian Bale is the category’s front-runner, Mark did take home the New York Film Critics Circle nod, so it’s probably worth still writing a speech!
Though wife Sunrise Coigney certainly cares (“[she] is just weeping with tears of joy”), Mark told USA Today that his kids don’t totally understand the significance for him. “I think being nominated is kind of an award…They don’t really get it, but I’ll just tell them something really special is being given to me.” It’s a long overdue nod, considering his terrific supporting work in films as varied as You Can Count On Me, 13 Going On 30 and Zodiac. “I got to find a babysitter! It’s a long trip back out to Los Angeles, but it’s one worth making. I guess I gotta go get this tux dry cleaned…We got a bottle of Veuve Clicquot in the refrigerator that we couldn’t drink because we had the stomach flu on New Year’s Eve, so we’re going to bust that baby out tonight!” They should at least give this guy a Too Cute award.
At long last, the end of the seemingly interminable Awards Season is in sight! This morning, AMPAS president Tom Sherak had the unenviable (and quite dangerous!) duty of waking up Mo’Nique before sunrise to announce the nominations for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, which will air on ABC on Sunday, February 27. Without further ado, here’s the list of nominees that were just announced…
Best Picture: Black Swan
The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
Javier Bardem, Biutiful
Jeff Bridges, True Grit
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech
James Franco, 127 Hours
It’s a shame we posted Amy Adams‘ Top 20 Hottest Dresses before this year’s Producers’ Guild Awards—her low-cut look last night would have had a good shot at #1. Despite the presence of cast charmers like Justin Timberlake, The Social Network‘s awards season streak hit a speed bump at the ceremony, with The King’s Speech stealing off with the Daryl F. Zanuck award for Best Feature. Other big winners were Toy Story 3, Mad Men, Modern Family and The Colbert Report.
On the less triumphant front was host Judd Apatow, whining that Ricky Gervais was a mean ol’ meanie at The Golden Globes. “Tim Allen did 200 episodes of Home Improvement. He was in three of the highest grossing movies of all time. And his latest just crossed the one billion mark. Whereas The Invention Of Lying made $18 million dollars worldwide…Leave Tim Allen alone.” Is the guy who brought us Seth Rogen and Freaks & Geeks really telling us we shouldn’t mock the rich and successful because they’re rich and successful? It’s nice to be nice, but when it comes to celebrity kiss-ass competitions, we prefer whichever host is the funniest.
See photos from the love-in (people love to hug Amy Poehler!) in the gallery below.
As you can guess by the above photo, Ricky Gervais isn’t ashamed of his vicious(ly funny) monologue at this year’s Golden Globes…or anything else. “I enjoyed the Globes more this year. I think I had better gags,” Gervais wrote on his blog, addressing the rumors that his hour-long disappearance mid-show was due to backstage drama. “Obviously the rumour that the organizers stopped me going out on stage for an hour is rubbish. I did every link I was scheduled to do. The reason why the gaps were uneven is because when I got the rundown I was allowed to choose who I presented to. I obviously chose the spots that I had the best gags for. They couldn’t move around the order but I could move around however I wanted.” So if you’re a celeb who didn’t get slammed on-stage by Gervais, congratulations—you’re boring!
Though confident that those who can take a joke were happy with his (“Thanks to the twitterverse, the blogosphere, all the journos and the coolest stars for coming to my rescue”), He did admit that the hoopla gave him pause. “Some reactions nearly had me believing I’d gone too far too. Nearly.” And though the Hollywood Foreign Press Association says the show “was among the best” (though some of his jokes “went too far”), Gervais told TMZ he probably won’t be back next year—“I think twice is enough.” Besides, how could he hope to top this year’s reaction?
