SAG Awards Results

We're home! And we're tired. Though, it isn't because we had to run in and out of seats for our seatfilling stint at the Awards. We actually both had unoccupied seats from which we viewed the whole show without moving from table to table. Yay!

I was told by my friends Anthony and Allison that I was on-camera when "The Office" cast won for best ensemble in a TV Comedy... because I was sitting at their table! My husband Jon was "Russell Crowe" for the night, which he explains in the brief video he posted on his blog. And, like last year, I again made an extensive list of everyone I sat with, spoke with, and saw from a distance.

Overall, I didn't feel like there was as much excitement surrounding the show this year. Jon pointed out that it could be do to the lack of "freshness" in new television series. Because of the writers' strike that began late last Fall, several new shows haven't had enough time on-air to be nominated for awards. Hence, most of the television folks at the show were being nominated for the same categories as last year. We're fans of "Chuck" in particular - anyone else?

I'm surprised that with how few categories there are beyond the usual ones (i.e. actor/actress), they didn't go ahead and include the stunt performance winners during the show. Here is the complete list of tonight's winners:

I would've done a lot of things to be at that table last night.

Do you know how lucky you are?

I am telling everyone that my friend got to hang out with the employees of Dunder Mifflin.

I want details. What they ate, talked about, everything.

I have to admit. The SAG Awards really didn't hold any surprises for me. Just about everyone I expected to win did so.

And it was cool you go to be seat fillers. I have to admit, I've always wanted to go to an awards ceremony.
