Fug File: SAG Awards

SAG Awards Fug or Fab: Uzo Aduba in Zac Posen


Well, this is undeniably fab:

22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Press Room

Uzo won Best Actress in a Comedy, as well as a SAG for being part of the best comedy ensemble. I always am a little bit like, “is Orange Is The New Black really a comedy?” But I also understand that it’s not exactly always a drama. It’s probably more comedic? Maybe? The thing is, I just thought, “well, Uzo is very funny.” But then I thought, “but, shit, Uzo has also BROKEN MY HEART as Crazy Eyes.”  Ergo, regardless, I am highly pleased by her win, and not just because no running C-plot in a TV show ever, arguably, as been as enjoyable to me as Suzanne’s stint as a mega-successful inner-prison space-erotica author. I think I’ve said this before, but Uzo is one of those actors who has the kind of charisma where, the instant you see her, you feel attached. I would also, obviously, like to be attached to that ring she’s wearing. (She also brought her prom date as her SAGs date.)

But let’s look at the whole dress:

I love the color and I love the clutch. I wonder if it needs a belt? Maybe not. No matter way, I was STUNNED to read it was Zac Posen.  Let’s discuss.

I hope they’d met before this. Or do I?

SAG Awards Well Played, Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton


I really love this, and not just because it looks like an awesome backsplash in Don Draper’s apartment, although it would look AMAZING with his decor. You know I’m right:

It’s also just sincerely groovy: Unexpected, graphic, and extremely shiny. And when she’s done wearing it, she can hang it over her sofa and call it art. There’s nothing better than a mixed-use frock. It’s also very pretty from the back:

On to the Oscars, Alicia. No pressure, but I think you might win this one. Choose carefully.

SAG Awards Mostly Well Played: Laverne Cox in Prabal Gurung


This is not as big a hit for me as her last two awards gowns were — I think I’d rank the Emmys Calvin Klein first, then her Globes gown, then this one, and I actually like this less the longer I look at it. But she is the kind of person who can elevate almost anything, and that’s what is carrying the day.

SAG Awards Well Played, Idris Elba


Idris Elba won not one but TWO acting awards last night, both for best supporting actor in a film (for Beasts of No Nation), and for Luther. This calls for unrestrained use of my very favorite gif:

It also brought us many photos of Idris being awesome and also handsome and it’s possible I downloaded, like, a lot of them. I HAVE NO REGRETS.

SAG Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Nicole Kidman in Gucci


I just keep thinking of this as Gucci’s clown collection.

It’s from the same line that yielded Dakota Johnson’s, and some of you liked that better than I did. I suspect this entire vision board is simply not my particular flavor of gum. I can start with the good: her hair, lush and full; her accessories; her smile; her carriage; her necklace, even sitting a tad low; her red carpet interview, in which she was very charming. I hope she and Keith Urban are for real (an absurd thing to say about a couple, except it’s Hollywood, where it’s almost a matter of course that people engage in bizarre role-playing with their own lives for insane lengths of time).

But I keep landing on it being too… silly. A bit Cheap and Cheerful, Frankly Fake, or whatever else you’d call something that’s trying to have the look of luxury but can’t hide that it was designed by a Vegas costumer who dreams of being in a Big Top having knives thrown at her by a man in a heavily waxed mustache that curls at the tips. That aesthetic, at the very least, I’d generally leave for the Grammys.

SAG Awards Fug or Fine Carpet: Brie Larson in Versace


Brie just flew in from Australia on Saturday morning, then picked out this dress and had to rally herself to get to the SAGs that night. I think she may have figured out on the fly that it wasn’t the best choice.
