The celebrities didn’t disappoint either, dazzling the red carpet in glorious color and typical Hollywood glamor.
The SAGs, the only show where actors vote for each other, has been a staple in the awards season since it first launched in 1995.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards reward the year’s finest achievements in acting in five film categories and eight television categories, including the distinctive ensemble awards, which honor the collaborative performance by a cast in a motion picture and by the ensemble casts of both comedy and dramatic television series.
SAG nominees are chosen by separate film and television nominating committees, each composed of 2,100 actors, randomly selected in the spring each year from the Guild’s nationwide membership of more than 120,000 actors and actresses. The entire active Guild membership is given the opportunity to vote via online or by paper ballot for their choice of winners.
And the SAGs certainly deliver when it comes to star power. The famous celebrities nominated this year for their performances in 2009 include George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Morgan Freeman, Diane Kruger, Matt Damon, Christopher Plummer and Penelope Cruz.
Six time Emmy winner Betty White will be given the Screen Actors Guild’s 46th Annual Life Achievement Award. The actress, who just turned 88-years-old, is known as the first lady of the game show world, as well as for her stint on the long running hit comedy, The Golden Girls.
White’s Propsoal co-star Sandra Bullock will be presenting her with her award.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards will be broadcast live this year on TBS and TNT at 8PM EST/PST.
