Jennifer Lawrence with actress Lupita Nyong’o. I really want to know what they were talking about.

The SAG Awards is probably the most “meh” of all awards shows, am I right? Still, that’s no reason to ignore the fashion. Why? Because it’s fun. Here are some looks from the 20th Annual SAG Awards. Let’s go through and pick the looks for BESTWORST, and WTF.

For more awards show fashion, check out the Golden Globes Awards post.

I don’t think Amanda Peet knows how to dress anymore. This is something I’d expect from Chloë Sevigny, and I don’t even know if she could pull this off. It’s just so…fug. I’m sorry, I know “fug” is played-out, but I cannot summon any other words to accurately describe this dour mess.

22Claire Danes Is More Than Carrie Mathison

Homeland is a great show. It’s been pretty slow most of this season until last week’s episode, but it’s still better than most of the other shit on TV. Part of what makes it so great are the actors, like Mandy Patinkin and, of course, Claire Danes. It’s brought her career – which has been great anyway, to be honest – to a pinnacle and is becoming her best-known role (which will always be My So-Called Life to me).

From Interview:

“I would really like to play another character to deviate from Carrie for a second, just because I’m starting to think that acting is this, and while this is one of the most fulfilling expressions of acting that I’ve found, it’s not why I do it.

“It’s not it. I think I’d appreciate her even more if I could take a little vacation from her and inhabit somebody else for a while.”

Fair enough. I would think it would get old – or at least a little stifling – to get caught up in a character, especially one as intense as Carrie. Still, she just does it so well! Seriously, she deserves all the awards for Homeland.

That being said, I’ll be interested to see what she does next.

Kelly Osbourne. From the front, this looked lovely. From the back, it looks like the dress is covered in fire ants and there’s nothing anybody can do about it. It belongs to the ants now.

1Can The New Season of ‘Homeland’ Just Start Already?

The new season of Homeland is going to be premiering at the end of September, but Showtime keeps teasing us with all these sneak peeks and it’s driving me crazy. In the latest one, we see Carrie and Brody – who were separated at the end of last season after that crazy ass explosion when she left him at the Canadian border – come face to face again. Are they back together? How and where will Brody hide? What’s going to happen? I MUST KNOW RIGHT NOW.

This show is too good. Sure, it’s not 100% “realistic”, but does that even matter? I have to deal with reality 24 hours a day – can’t I have one hour a week where there’s a bit of a suspended reality that’s also really, really great to watch? Bring on the new season.

1Everybody Get Excited: There’s a New ‘Homeland’ Trailer Out!

If you haven’t watched Homeland before, you still have about six weeks to catch up on the first two seasons before the third one starts, so I recommend you get on that. Claire Danes in what is arguably the best role of her entire career? Check. Mandy Patinkin being fucking awesome? Check. British people with American accents? Check. Annoying teenagers who overact? Check. Drama that’s totally not how things would play out in real life but is still completely addicting and almost but not quite believable? Check. Are you picking up what I’m putting down? You gotta watch it!

The third season of Homeland starts on September 29, and we should be picking up where we left off (spoiler-ish alert): Carrie’s back at the CIA with Saul, Brody’s on the run, his family doesn’t know what the hell to think, etc. While the trailer shows a series of clips all out of sync and doesn’t give too much detail, it’s just enough to get excited about. AHHHH!

What are your theories for the upcoming season? What did you think of the way things ended last time? I’m still devastated about the whole Carrie/Brody fallout.
