We are still in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp when it comes to outing sexual harassment, assault and disparity in Hollywood and it too center stage again at the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on January 21, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.
Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kristen Bell was the first host (of any gender) of the annual show.
Also, women made all the presentations of awards during the event.
Unlike during the Golden Globes, we saw a lot of color on the red carpet. Attendees showed their solidarity to the movements with lapel pins and speeches.
Along with Bell, other celeb moms featured on the blog attended including Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Maya Rudolph, Giuliana Rancic, Nicole Kidman, Laura Linney, Reese Witherspoon and Allison Janney. The latter four were nominated for awards with Janney and Kidman walking away with the top honors for their respective categories.
The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards went down last night at The Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California and has been notable this year because of its diversity among winners (Viola Davis for Best Actress and Denzel Washington for Best Actor in Fences, Hidden Figures for Best Cast and Mahershala Ali for Best Actor Supporting Role in Moonlight).
But it was noteworthy in the fashion world for another reason.
This not the first time Howard, who was nominated for her performance in an episode of Netflix‘s Black Mirror, has opted to skip the expensive couture and custom designed dresses many stars wear on the red carpet.
In December, the Twilight saga series star wore a dreamy yellow Top Shop gown to the Critics Choice Awards, which sells for just $240 at Topshop. At the 2016 Golden Globes, the daughter of famed actor turned director Ron Howard, wore a blue Jenny Packham gown that she bought herself at Neiman Marcus the week of the show.
These choices are awesome because in a world where many people clamor to imitate celeb style, she makes it achievable for fashion conscious women of all socio-economic levels. Also, you got to give it up to her for giving back while looking fabulous! Score!
More reasons to love Bryce! Swoon!
Pregnant women can do it all. Case in point: Natalie Portman.
The Academy Award-winning actress had the nerve to look this fashionably adorable in a gorgeous flowing floral Alexander McQueen frock while accepting the award for Best Actress at this week’s Critics’ Choice Awards this week.
She brilliantly rocked Steve Madden heels, a Christian Louboutin clutch, and Cartier jewelry at the event held this past December 11th.
The Israeli-American star also got a top actress nod for the 2017 Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild! This path is reminiscent to the last time she was expecting her first child Aleph, a son with her French choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied.
Portman received the equivalent of the est Actress award for her role in Black Swan at the Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globes and Academy Awards in 2011-2012.
The second time mom-to-be is much buzzed to also be nominated for and to take home a Best Actress Oscar win for her role as Jackie Kennedy in the critically -acclaimed biopic Jackie.
The movie follows the late former First Lady during the days after her husband John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas in November 22, 1963.
The 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards was held at Barker Hangar on December 11, 2016 in Santa Monica, California.
Apparently, she breathed life into the roll and was quite compelling.
Go Natalie, Go! The stars are aligned for another sweep!
