'Argo' Wins Screen Actors Guild Top Honor; Awards Go To 'Lincoln' And '30 Rock'
Argo, starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, Victor Garber and John Goodman, took home the top honor of Outstanding Ensemble in a Motion Picture at the 2012 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night, while 30 Rock saw lead actors Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin take home best actor prizes for their individual performances. Lincoln actors Tommy Lee Jones and Daniel Day Lewis claimed the supporting and lead acting awards for a motion picture, respectively.
Legendary actor, singer and dancer Dick Van Dyke was presented with a lifetime achievement award and gave a pleasant speech that was far less fodder for conversation than Jodie Foster's lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes.
The SAG Awards ceremony wrapped up in just two hours, serving as a direct yet affectionate congratulations to those who shared their talents on the big and small screen. The SAG results could be a good indication of what can be expected on Feb. 25 when The Academy Awards take place, as one-sixth of the voting body will be actors who determined Sunday night's outcome.
