SAG Awards Winners 2012

SAG Awards 2012The 18th Annual SAG awards were aired on TNT and TBS on Sunday, January 29, 2012. The Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) honors the best performances of 2011 movies and television shows. Usually, the SAG awards will be a good insight of how the Oscars will turn out.

The SAG awards winners, just like the Oscars, are given an award that is a nude male figure that holds a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy. The SAG award given is called “The Actor” and weighs a little over 12 pounds, is 16 inches tall and is solid bronze. “The Actor” award statuette is produced by American Fine Arts Foundry in Burbank, California.

There is no master of ceremonies at the SAG Awards 2012. Presenters and winners are free to improvise for the evening, but the show doesn’t drag on. The SAG Awards seem to end at its two hour time slot just as planned.

The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Mary Tyler Moore. She said in a speech about how she started in show business at the age of 18 in 1955. At that time, there were already six other Mary Moore in the SAG Awards. So, she was told to change her name. Mary Tyler Moore added her middle name, Tyler. She shares the name with her father, George. In her speech she says, “I was Mary Tyler Moore. I spoke it out loud. Mary Tyler Moore. It sounded right so I wrote it down on the form, and it looked right. It was right. SAG was happy, my father was happy, and tonight, after having the privilege of working in this business among the most creative and talented people imaginable, I too am happy, after all.”
