At tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, several of our fave moms featured on the blog in the past were up for a statue in several categories.
Christina Applegate was nominated for her brilliant work in Dead to Me; Scarlett Johansson for Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Charlize Theron for Bombshell and Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers, and Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon for Big Little Lies, Anna Paquin for her role as the older Peggy Sheeran with the cast of The Irishman
Fashion and Red Carpet-wise, we saw a lots of pinks, romantic feminine sheer and chiffon, deep v-cut necklines, and plenty of very full ball gowns tonight including on Jennifer Garner who presented an award last night.
JLo went with a dark velor gown by Georges Hobeika Couture whilst dropping in Harry Winston diamonds – very Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend Marilyn Monroe-esque.
Johansson was stunning in a satin teal low cut Armani Prive dress.
It was a halter and matching belted Givenchy
high waist skirt with center split for Theron.

Nearly nine years after undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, mom-of-one Christina Applegate underwent another surgery.
During an appearance on Today, the Bad Moms star, revealed that she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.
“Two weeks ago, I had my ovaries and [fallopian] tubes removed,” she shared. “My cousin passed away from ovarian cancer in 2008. I could prevent that. That’s how I’ve taken control of everything.”
She added: “It’s a relief. That’s one other thing off the table. Now, let’s hope I don’t get hit by a bus.”
The Married With Children star has the BRCA1 gene mutation, which predisposes her to developing cancer.
Admittedly, the Anchorman actress worries about her 6-year-old daughter Sadie.
“The chances that my daughter is BRCA positive are very high. I look at her and feed her the cleanest foods. I try to keep her stress levels down. I’m doing everything I can on my end knowing that in 20 years, she’ll have to start getting tested,” she shared. “Hopefully by then there will be advancements. It breaks my heart to think that’s a possibility.”
