SAG Awards winners 2013 Anne Hathaway, Tommy Lee Jones
The SAG Awards 2013 are currently being held at the Shrine Exposition Center, just south of downtown Los Angeles. One of the key Academy Award precursors, SAG Award winners have usually gone on to take home Oscars in their respective categories. (Image: Anne Hathaway Les Misérables.)
The SAG Award winner for Best Supporting Actor was absentee Tommy Lee Jones for his performance as Thaddeus Stevens in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. About two weeks ago, Jones lost the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe to Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained – Waltz, however, was not nominated for a SAG Award. Both Jones and Waltz are in the running for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.
Despite Christoph Waltz's absence from the SAG Awards 2013 roster, Jones had some strong competition, chiefly Robert De Niro in David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook and Philip Seymour Hoffman in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, both distributed by the awards-season savvy The Weinstein Company – which also distributed Django Unchained.
SAG Awards Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway
An easy pick, Golden Globe winner and Oscar favorite Anne Hathaway was the SAG Awards 2013 Best Supporting Actress for her tragic, singing Fantine in Tom Hooper's musical Les Misérables. Hathaway's competitors were Sally Field in Lincoln, Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy, Helen Hunt in The Sessions, and Maggie Smith in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
After receiving her The Actor statuette from Justin Timberlake, Anne Hathaway explained she has been a SAG card-carrying member since she was 14. She then proceeded to thank her representatives and her actress-mother, Kate McCauley Hathaway, for voting for her.
SAG Awards television winners
In the SAG Awards television categories, 30 Rock actors Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey came out victorious in the Best Actor / Best Actress (or Best Female Actor) in a Television Comedy Series. Alec Baldwin, who feigned surprise, won his eighth SAG Award; Tina Fey won her fifth.
Two movie actors, Julianne Moore and Kevin Costner, won SAG Awards for Best Actress / Best Actor in a TV Movie / Miniseries: Moore for her portrayal of former U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in Game Change and Kevin Costner for the Western miniseries Hatfields & McCoys. Moore read a laundry-list of names, after comparing acting to playing basketball – “team work”; Costner didn't say anything because he was a no-show.
And finally, Modern Family was the Best Television Comedy Series ensemble. Cast members include Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Ed O'Neill.
