Well, the already close and muddled Oscar Best Picture race just got even closer and more muddled. At last night’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, Marvel’s Black Panther took home two awards—the only film to win more than one—for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and for the film’s stunt performers. While not necessarily an indicator of which film might win the Best Picture Oscar as only one branch—the actors—votes on these awards, SAG’s Cast award has given films like Shakespeare in Love, Crash, Argo, and Spotlight some last minute juice on their way to winning Best Picture.
Chadwick Boseman gave an outstanding speech which you can watch above, and it really makes me wonder if Black Panther‘s got a shot at the top Oscar prize. I doubt it, as many in the Academy will still view it as a “comic book movie” but the film clearly has support within the industry.
The other film races clearly cemented front-runners in both Best Actress—Glenn Close for The Wife—and Supporting Actor—Mahershala Ali for Green Book—and with his win for Best Actor, it’s also given Bohemian Rhapsody‘s Rami Malek a slight advantage over Vice‘s Christian Bale in that race. Presumed Best Supporting Actress frontrunner Regina King from If Beale Street Could Talk wasn’t nominated for a SAG, and SAG winner Emily Blunt for A Quiet Place wasn’t nominated for an Oscar, so I guess they sort of cancel each other out there. However, anyone who thought Vice‘s Amy Adams could pick up momentum in that race was likely disappointed that she didn’t pull through.
It is officially awards season.
And while the Screen Actor's Guild Awards are meant to honor the very best in film and television, we must be honest:
All eyes were not on the winner's circle in 2019. But rather on the red carpet.
Who wore it best? Who wore it way worse? Who has come so very far from her days of wearing meat dresses and other silly outfits?

A 23-year-old photographer named Grace laid into Aziz Ansari for making her uncomfortable and put him on blast for being terrible at sex which resulted in a pretty divided crowd on if Aziz did anything wrong. Some are on Aziz’s side, some are on the woman’s. In either case, why chance a sea of boos at the SAG Awards?
Ansari was a no-show the other night at the SAG Awards after being nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. He lost to William H. Macy who probably hasn’t sexually assaulted anyone.
No word on what Aziz was doing instead but it was probably his patented claw move on other women. Chicks dig that.
The Screen Actor Guild voted on the best television shows and movies on Sunday night.
But those results are not what we're focused on at the moment.
We're here to ask readers to vote on the following red carpet dresses and tuxedos.

Stranger Things won for Best Ensemble in a Drama series and David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper, used his time on the mic to deliver an impassioned speech about our current state of affairs. Even though it was everything people wanted it to be, let’s forget about it for quick second. Instead, let’s focus on Winona Ryder’s facial expressions during the speech. Either she’s the most expressive person in the world or the acid finally hit.
It sounds like Homeland fans aren’t the only ones who know Claire Danes‘ famous faces.
But other than her own successful series and husband Hugh Dancy‘s show Hannibal, Danes admits she’s a little unfamiliar with the rest of the nominations — or any other Hollywood hits from the past few years.
“I barely am able to watch my own show, my husband’s show,” she jokes. “We took Cyrus to his first movie for his birthday in December, like a movie in the movie theater. We saw Peanuts and it was maybe my first movie that I saw in the theater since he was born.”
But Danes may soon catch a bit of a break: The cast is now shooting in her hometown and the busy mom can’t wait to be back to her stomping grounds.
“To shoot in my hometown is ironically rather exotic and wonderful, so I’m really looking forward to that,” she explains. “I’m stoked. I get to go home to my own actual bed.”
Danes — who’s nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series for Homeland — is also preparing for her new role in the play Dry Powder, in which she will star alongside John Krasinski and Hank Azaria.
“It’s a comedy, a social satire. It’s very different in tone from Homeland, so it’s a nice deviation. It will be fun,” she says.
Homeland is also up for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series and outstanding actor performance by a stunt ensemble in a comedy or drama series.

Eddie Redmayne Jokes He’s Dreaming of Wooden Toys for His Baby (But Will Likely End Up with iPhones!)
In theory, Eddie Redmayne knows what kind of father he wants to be.
But the dad-to-be — who’s expecting his first child with wife Hannah — admits his hopes of an eco-friendly future for his baby on the way will be hard to fulfill.
“Everyone’s like, ‘You always start like that and you end up with iPhones.’ ”
For now, the couple are concentrating their efforts on making sure they have everything they need to head to the hospital once the time comes. But Redmayne jokes even that seems daunting.
“We started looking at the logistics and all the lists of things you’re meant to get before you go into hospital and that’s a long list of stuff right there,” he says.
And although he is in the full swing of awards season, it’s given Redmayne — who’s nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role for The Danish Girl — and Hannah the perfect opportunity to relax.
“Got in yesterday, just finished shooting [Fantastic Beasts] yesterday as well. It’s been six months of filming. So I’m on holiday and the sun is shining in L.A., so that’s wonderful,” he explains.
“The past year has been quite manic, weirdly [Hannah and I] find the airplanes quite calming places. You can’t use your phone, you have to sit and relax and take it easy.”

“How’s your baby boy?” Goreski, 38, asked The Addams Family actress. (PEOPLE confirmed in August 2014 that Ricci and her husband James Heerdegen had welcomed a son.)
“Amazing!” Ricci, 35, replied.

“Freddie and Karen are Christina’s dogs,” Goreski said to the camera.
“No, no. Freddie is my baby. Karen is my dog,” the actress clarified.
“They’re so cute!” Goreski added.
Meanwhile, the actress is is nominated for the outstanding performance by a female actor in a television movie or miniseries for Lifetime’s The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, which follows the exploits of Borden after she was acquitted of 1892 murders of her parents.
Ricci, for her part, is to happy about the recognition, tweeting at the time: “SoulCycle finds my lost flat iron and I get a SAG award nomination?! No way. Thanks SAG!”
