Fug File: SAG Awards

SAG Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Women of Downton Abbey

The SAGs LOVE Downton, as they’ve won best ensemble in a drama several years in a row. And love seeing the Downtonites out of period costume. They all look more or less great, but Baxter looks particularly amazing. NO SPOILERS!

Note: No Michelle Dockery this year. Her fiance died at the very end of 2015, and (understandably) she hasn’t made any public appearances since. Actually, I just realized that it’s ONLY the Downstairs Downtonites who came to this event.



SAG Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Women of Orange Is The New Black

In case you’re wondering where Laverne is, she got her own post here. In case you’re wondering where Uzo is, she got her own post here. But there’s still quite a lot to look at. A lot of the OITNB women went shiny. As you can imagine, I do approve.

SAG Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Women of Mad Men

I think I’m going to give this one to Kiernan. Unless “this one” is the “WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?” award, in which case I fear January Jones may have it in the bag. Let’s talk it out.


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.

SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Susan Sarandon in Max Mara

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.
