    What was Nicole Kidman thinking her dress was horrible!!!!

  2. Fan says:

    So happy for Stranger Things!

    Getting really tired of Julia Louis Dreyfus though. Very overrated in my opinion

    • Walkie says:

      And your opinion would be wrong.

      She’s anything but overrated.

      Comic genius.

    • Mimi says:

      Agree with Fan. Enough already with Julia. She’s funny in Veep, but not win every year funny. JMHO!

    • Shru says:

      Ummm have you seen her in Veep? She’s fantastic. Pretty much blows all the other nominees out of the water

    • Spence says:

      I understand getting a tad tired of her, but she certainly isn’t overrated. I agree that maybe it’d be cool for other actresses to get spotlights at awards shows, but it’s hard to argue since she really does deserve the accolades.

  3. J.B. says:

    I’ll take 2 of whatever Winona Ryder had.

  4. YTKylie says:

    Um, there is no possible way Stranger Things Ensemble is better than that of Game of Thrones, The Crown and Westworld…

    • Amelia says:

      Huge fan of the other series as well but we have to remember that these are children putting in these great performances in ST.

    • Luke Potter says:

      Westworld has a few *outstanding* performances, (and *great* writing and visuals) but most of the acting was simply acceptable, nothing more. And a lot of this season’s GoT actors were simply too over the top. (Lena Headey was amazing and should have won an award.) The Crown is simply overrated overdramatized drivel that deserved nothing.

  5. kitsunesaru says:

    I like that they have an award for stunts. Very under-appreciated group of people. Wish the Oscars had a category. Even if it was in the technical awards (or whatever they’re called).

  6. Who is the guy holding the award in the picture of the Stranger Things ensemble above? I swear he’s my doppleganger

  7. KLS says:

    I thought everyone on here hated William Lacy’s performance on Shameless? I guess it was a small group.

    • Tom says:

      They hated him because he was a man who was making more money than a woman, but since Emmy got her raise, its now okay to point out how great of a job Lacy does year after year; because now it doesn’t hurt the feminist argument that pay wasn’t based on merit.

    • B says:

      I don’t see any comments here about William H. Macy. That other actors gave him an award has no connection with the opinions of people who read this site.

    • KLS says:

      *Willam Macy

    • Brian says:

      Macy’s performance on ‘Shameless’ has been quite good the past two seasons of ‘Shameless’. He is a formidable talent and has shown it. This season, in the episodes with Chloe Webb back as ‘Monica’ and ‘Frank’ getting ‘Liam’ into school and last season with Emily Bergl around as ‘Sammi’ he has had really good award worthy material and he has knocked it out of the park. He deserves the award. But also, Emmy Rossum deserves awards recognition and got a very well deserved raise because this show that has increased its ratings every year since it first aired is firing on all cylinders heading into its 8th Season next year and to lose her when the show is thriving would have been catastrophic. All that fans were saying, I think, is that she deserved the money as much as the strong veteran.

  8. Maxsmom says:

    I feel like the last rider on the Stranger Things bandwagon but I loved it so much I don’t want a season 2. It was perfection. Let it stand!

  9. mario says:

    SAG awards are getting tedious. Every year same nominees and winners. In the comedy ensemble category, while OITNB and Modern Family are good respected shows , how does The Big Bang Theory get 10 nominations in this category and not win at least once? Very strange indeed

    • jj says:

      You can hardly claim that every year it’s the same nominees and winners. In the comedy awards for television, it was actors who have won before. But look at the drama categories. 4 of 5 female nominees were new. The three winners (female, male, ensemble) were for new shows.

    • Luke Potter says:

      Because BBT is almost always good enough to get lots of nods, but is very rarely the *best* at anything in a given year?
