The 2017 SAG Awards are occurring tonight. The awards begin at eight pm on TNT right here in America, and the E! Purple Carpet pre-show begins at 6 pm. We’ll have full vogue protection tomorrow morning, beginning shiny and early.
I might think about that they are going to be loopy political this yr, don’t you? And by that I imply… on the Golden Globes, Meryl Streep made a chic argument in opposition to Emperor Child Fists and the whole lot he represents, and that occurred BEFORE he was in even in workplace. Now that we’re by the primary full week of the Orange Apocalypse, I don’t see how the presenters and winners tonight received’t be making near-constant references to any and all of Trump’s harmful, unhappy, divisive, misogynistic, racist, unhinged, petty hatemongering.
The hostess of our SAG Open Publish this yr is Emily Blunt. She shocked me – and I believe she shocked many individuals – by getting a SAG and a BAFTA nomination for her work in The Lady on the Prepare. Whereas the guide was widespread, the movie was not a crucial success. The movie nonetheless sits at 43% on Rotten Tomatoes. That being stated, it did gross greater than $170 million worldwide, so extra folks noticed Blunt’s movie than, say, Loving. Loving obtained shut out of the SAGs. Unhappy. For a couple of weeks, I used to be actually anxious that Emily was surging within the Greatest Actress race and that she would find yourself with an Oscar nomination and Ruth Negga wouldn’t. However that didn’t occur. So… anticipate to see Emily and her husband on the purple carpet tonight – they already flew dwelling from London, the place she’s been engaged on Mary Poppins.
