Carrie Fisher mocks Debbie Reynolds as she presents 2015 SAG award

17 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Carrie Fisher mocked her mother Debbie Reynolds as she presented her with a Lifetime Achievement prize at the Screen Actors Guild awards last night (25.01.15). The 'Star Wars' actress gave a humorous introduction to her 82-year-old mom and even referenced her infamous feud with Dame Elizabeth Taylor, who had an affair with her first husband, Carrie's father Eddie Fisher. Carrie said: ''She's been more than a mother to me, not much, but definitely more. She is a movie star, recording artist, television actor, nightclub entertainer, Broadway performer and co-founder of the Thalians, a group that has raised more than $30 million for mental health. Well, mental health-related causes, and $4.5 million of that money is allocated just for me... ''This is an extraordinarily kind, gifted, and funny woman who would give you the shirt off her back if Vivien Leigh hadn't once worn it in 'Gone With the Wind'. »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

18 hours ago | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

SAG Awards: Debbie Reynolds honoured for lifetime achievement

18 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Debbie Reynolds accepted the Screen Actors Guild's lifetime achievement award from her daughter Sunday night, and promptly embarrassed Carrie Fisher with a story.

The 82-year-old entertainer recalled having "a big, ugly bun" in her best-known movie, Singin' in the Rain.

"I warned my daughter Carrie, be careful of any weird hairdo," Reynolds said she advised Fisher before playing Princess Leia in George LucasStar Wars.

"Luckily, George gave her two buns."

Reynolds initially told the audience at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles that her favourite movie was Singin' in the Rain, her first major co-starring role in 1952 with Gene Kelly.

But later she also called The Unsinkable Molly Brown her favourite. She received her only Oscar nomination for the 1964 film.

"I got to sing a song called 'I Ain't Down Yet,'" she said. "Well, I ain't."

The acerbic Fisher lovingly and bitingly celebrated her mother before turning over the mic. »

Highlights from the 2015 SAG Awards (Video)

21 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The SAG Awards are the night when Hollywood recognizes its own, and so things can get a bit emotional - who doesn't like being complimented by one's colleagues? To that end, the 2015 SAG Awards featured any number of touching moments, from Uzo Aduba's emotional acceptance speech to Viola Davis mentioning her daughter during her own speech. (The pair made history Sunday - this is the first time in SAG history the two lead television acting awards have gone to women of color.) Carrie Fisher hilariously introduced her mother, life achievement award recipient Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Redmayne continued to live his best life, »

“That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff”: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People

25 January 2015 9:56 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Quick…name a favorable film where the landscape is run by (or at least partially include) the demographic of little people as part of the instrumental storyline? C’mon…it should not be that difficult, okay? If you want to mention say Darby O’Gill and the Little People then that would fine. How about Bad Santa or Poltergeist for that matter?

In That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People we will take a look at some of the mini megastars that inhabited these movies and contributed their fair share of entertainment value to the on-screen proceedings. The debate as to whether some of these selected films featuring these pint-sized performers are considered positive, exploitative or dismissive are not up for discussion (although one of these considerations could apply in the minds of a few folks). Instead, we want to celebrate the inclusion of »

SAG Awards 2015: The Best, the Worst and the Most Awkward Moments

25 January 2015 9:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Every year, stars get together at the SAG Awards to congratulate each other on how awesome they all are with a lavish, unhosted ceremony that speeds along at a quick pace because everyone wants to get their naked man sculptures and hit up the after parties.

Because of the ceremony's weird place in the awards season – after the Oscar Nominations have been announced but before the Oscars actually take place - and the Golden Globes-esque mingling of television and film stars, sometimes the show can get real weird, real quick.

Screen Actors Glasses: Stylish Lady Frames Ruled the SAG Awards

It was all in the eyes at this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards. After inspiring a Twitter account with her specs at the Golden Globes, Lupita Nyong'o stepped up to the SAG Awards stage wearing glasses again - and she appears to have started a trend. For the SAGs, the actress looked amazingly accessorized with thick black frames, even holding her own next to Jared Leto's famous locks. Nyong'o's fashionable four-eyed look was followed by a streak of other bespectacled ladies. Patricia Arquette showed up at the podium in a set of cobalt blue frames, which came in handy »

‘Birdman’ Wins Best Cast in a Movie at SAG Awards

25 January 2015 3:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Solidifying its status as an awards season contender, “Birdman” nabbed the top prize at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild awards, winning best cast in a film.

“Actors love this film,” admitted “Birdman” star Michael Keaton backstage at the Shrine Auditorium.

The story of actors putting on a Broadway play won the ensemble award over “Boyhood,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game” and “The Theory of Everything.”

It was a big weekend for “Birdman,” which moved into front-runner status with its SAG win, combined with the Darryl F. Zanuck award for best picture from the Producers Guild of America on Saturday night.

The winner of the SAG ensemble trophy has matched the Oscar best picture winner just nine times in 19 years, and last year “American Hustle” won the SAG cast award and was shut out at the Oscars. “Argo” won both awards two years ago.
