The SAG Awards...in HD! (Sorry, had to say it. ;)

There weren't many, but but a few highlights from the SAG Awards.....

"I walked down a runway in my underwear. I was painted blue for three movies. And now I play a transsexual on TV. My name is is Rebecca Romijn and I'm a model turned actor." Hee!

Tina Fey winning! She and her speech were adorable. I talked to my mother after the show and she's not a regular 30 Rock viewer, yet she was apparently chanting, "Give it to Tina! Give it to Tina!"

Javier Bardem is kind of hot.

Ryan Gosling is kind of adorable.

Brad and Angelina are too damn gorgeous.

I can't really comment too much on the bizarreness of on Mickey Rooney since I had to turn the sound off. (What was with the medals?)

Daniel Day Lewis is a class act. That was a great tribute to Heath Ledger.

Josh Brolin enjoying his moment in the sun and telling Woody to "back off". :)

I finally saw Sweeney Todd today. As expected, it was a gorgeous film and Johnny was very good in the title role. Overall, I enjoyed it, but something was missing. Thinking about it this evening it dawned on me what that missing something was. This film was a tragedy for every single character, yet I wasn't moved by anything I saw on screen. It was simply watching this series of unfortunate events tied together by song. A film about love, revenge and murder should have passion and this film lacked that.

My mother, who is perhaps the most honest person I know, upon finding out I'm getting every cable channel available and not paying for them told me a) Comcast may never find out and b) keep my mouth shut. ;p

I was floored by Daniel Day-Lewis' tribute to Heath. It was unexpected and very moving. *cry*
And because it came from Daniel Day Lewis we know this was something genuine, heart felt, and very unplanned. Not that I ever dismissed Heath as a serious actor, but the way Daniel talked about Monsters Ball had me thinking about how he wasn't given enough credit for his work in that film.
I don't remember how I came across it, I saw a clip of DDL talking about Heath on Oprah. He said he never met him and yet was very genuinely upset. It never seems false coming from DDL, one of the least attention grabbing actors ever.
Heh. That Rebecca Romjin quote is definitely being added to my list of favourites ;)

Your mother sounds like a person of sage wisdom and profound insights ;)
Yay your Mom!! It's not a pre-meditated theft, so it's not wrong in my book!
With all the trials and tribulations Comcast put us through before we finally quit them, I say keep them in the dark as long as possible!

I've been on the fence about seeing Sweeney Todd. While I'd love to see Johnny Depp sing, the subject matter has always turned me off. That, and your review has me thinking I'm better off just buying the soundtrack and listening to him.
My mother, who is not weak of stomach, commented, several times, that there was too much gore. It didn't really bother me since I have seen some truly disturbing horror films and I took into consideration that Tim Burton seemed to purposely be going over the top with the throat slashing. If the subject matter is an issue though, you may just want to just listen to the CD. ;)
