There's so much that's wrong with Nia Vardalos's black and white ensemble, it's difficult to know where to begin. The busy print, layered bodice and loose, sheer sleeves overwhelm the actress – whose smash My Big Fat Greek Wedding was nominated for an outstanding cast SAG award.

Though the Everybody Loves Raymond cast walked away with SAG honors for best ensemble in a comedy series, Patricia Heaton (also nominated for best actress in a comedy series) isn't winning any awards for her too-tight frilly pink frock with its tacky ruffles and tulle at the hem.

Talk about leaving nothing to the imagination: Stockard Channing is spilling out of her chocolate-colored, decolletage-baring silky gown. And the SAG winner – for lead actress in a miniseries or TV movie for The Matthew Shepard Story – makes another wrong turn by pairing her earth-toned dress with a bright blue jeweled necklace.

Usually a vibrant red-carpet presence who shows off her enviable curves, Salma Hayek, nominated for lead film actress for Frida, is swimming in a moss-colored, long-sleeved gown. And the frock's muddy hue washes her out instead of lighting her up.

Toni Collette shares a laugh with SAG nominee Allison Janney, but her awful outfit is no laughing matter. The Aussie actress (part of the SAG-nominated cast of The Hours) looks juvenile in her lacy, ribbon-laden black-and-white dress.

Frasier star Jane Leeves – whose show was a SAG Awards nominee for outstanding comedy ensemble – isn't winning any style points for her blue-and-green strapless chiffon gown. Its bandeau top flattens her and makes the slight actress look too skinny.

It looks like The West Wing's Janel Moloney got lost on the way to her senior prom and ended up at the SAG Awards instead. The pale yellow, strapless, tea-length dress is bland in both shade and cut.

The West Wing's Mary-Louise Parker (whose show was a SAG nominee for best ensemble in a drama series) is a sheer mess on the red carpet. Her see-through black minidress with cutout shoulders reveals a white slip underneath for a look that's downright disastrous.
