Is there an Oscar in her future?
Sandra Bullock continued her awards-show winning streak, picking up the trophy for outstanding performance by a female leading actor for The Blind Side at Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.
“If this were only not televised so I could use the appropriate words I’m feeling right now,” Bullock, who won the same award at last weekend’s Golden Globes, said. “I’m Sandra Bullock, and I’m an actor and I’m so proud to say that in a room full of faces that have inspired me.”
The actress also paid loving – and humorous – tribute to her husband, Jesse James, from the podium at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium.

“You get dressed up in monkey suits and you sit at a table with people you don’t know,” she said. “And I leave you there, and then you come back with, like, Morgan Freeman’s e-mail [address]. I don’t know how you do it. I love you so much, and you’re really hot. And I want you so much!”
Other top movie winners at the telecast included Jeff Bridges, also a Globes winner, for outstanding male leading actor (Crazy Heart); the stars of Inglourious Basterds, which claimed outstanding performance by an ensemble cast; and Mo’Nique, who was named outstanding supporting actress in a drama for her role as the terrifying Mary Jones in Precious.
A Big Night for Glee
The cast of Glee had plenty to sing about at the SAG Awards, too. Fresh from last weekend’s big Golden Globes win for best comedy series, the stars of Fox’s freshman hit were named best ensemble cast in a comedy series.
Collecting the award in a glamorous evening gown, as opposed to her character Sue Sylvester’s trademark tracksuits, Jane Lynch said, “To be chosen by our peers means the world to us.”
But the stars of 30 Rock weren’t neglected by their peers, either. Tina Fey collected her third consecutive award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series, while her costar Alec Baldwin picked up the evening’s first trophy, outstanding male actor in a comedy series.
“I just want to take a moment to say to everyone at NBC, We are very happy with everything – and happy to be here,” Fey deadpanned, referencing the recent shakeups over the network’s late-night scheduling, to roars from the audience.
This year’s Golden Globes best drama, Mad Men, claimed the outstanding ensemble in the drama award for the second year in a row. “I would like to thank every one of the male members of our cast for getting the note about growing a beard, except Jared [Harris],” a hirsute Jon Hamm cracked as he collected the award, surrounded by his castmates. “Way to go buddy. Way to drop the ball.”
In another Globes redux, Julianna Margulies and Michael C. Hall were named outstanding dramatic actors for their roles on The Good Wife and Dexter respectively.
