Ben Affleck was the host and he wanted to explain that awkward speech that he gave when he accepted the award for Argo as best picture at the Oscars. Jennifer Garner joined him on stage and they poked fun at that ‘marriage is work’ speech during the SNL monologue.
Kanye West was the musical guest and his performance was very angry and very odd. He did a few new songs off his upcoming album Yeezus. First one was called Black Skinhead and he did his thing in front of a screen that said “Not For Sale”, which is the exact opposite philosophy of his in-laws, the Kar-cashians. They sell their lives just to get paid.
Next, Kanye performed a song called New Slaves. Both the songs were racially charged and very angry. What’s got Yeezus so pissed these days? I’m guessing it’s prob Kim and their failed relationship that they haven’t fessed up to yet but then again, he could be putting on a bitter show to get everyone talking about his new album.
And finally, Stefon (Bill Hader) had a big send off! He got into a little tiff with Seth Meyers during the Weekend Update and announced that he was taking off to marry another man. Seth realized just in time that he was actually in love with Stefon and stopped him from marrying Anderson Cooper.
Watch the SNL highlights below. What did you think of the finale? And what do you think of Kanye’s new songs?
Don’t you hate it when you film a 3D movie and your girlfriend makes a lot of appearances but you break up before the release and it’s too much work to edit her out? Anyone?
Well that’s what One Direction’s Liam Payne is dealing with right now. He and girlfriend Danielle Peazer have broken up again!
They’ve dated on and off for the last few years after meeting on the X-Factor back in 2010. They split briefly last year before rekindling their romance. They even sealed their commitment by adopting a dog together just two months ago.
But they just couldn’t make their relationship work. They have called it quits again, citing his hectic schedule as the deal breaker.
A source said, “They have been trying for months to make it work but it just hasn’t. They had a big chat last month and decided there wasn’t any point in dragging it out. Liam’s on tour until November and Danielle’s very busy so they basically never see each other. It was extremely amicable though, which is good because there’s a strong chance Danielle will still be in the lads’ upcoming 3D film. The boys are still filming it and editing is going to go right down to the wire. But she’s been there for most of the filming so it’ll be tough to cut her out and Liam wouldn’t want that anyway.”
In other words, it’s too late to cut her out of the film. If it was just super easy to cut someone out of a movie, Ben Affleck would have had himself removed from Gigli forever ago.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards are given by the Screen Actors Guild American Federation of Television and Radio Artists to recognize the outstanding performances by its members.
Daniel Day-Lewis took home Best Actor in a Leading Role for Lincoln and Jennifer Lawrence took home Best Actress in a Leading Role for Silver Linings Playbook.
Argo, the movie played and directed by Ben Affleck, took home Best Ensemble Cast. Ben doubted his win on Argo at the SAG awards saying, “I thought, ‘There’s no way we’d win this award.’ I looked at the other films nominated in this category. You look at the ensemble in Silver Linings Playbook or in Lincoln or in Les Mis. Those three movies – you could make 30 great movies out of the casts in those.” Argo had another win by Clea DuVall for Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture.
And on the TV side of the awards, Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family won Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series, beating out fellow nominees from 30 Rock and The Office and Sophie McShera won Best Ensemble in a Drama Series for Downtown Abbey.
The winner for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for 30 Rock went to Tina Fey. She said, “I really hope 30 Rock has a long life in syndication. I look forward to another generation finding it and enjoying it.” She also went along to thank Amy Poehler for her win along with her 30 Rock.
Best Male Actor in a Drama Series went to Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad. On his character of Walter White, Cranston said, “Walter White is the role of my career. I honestly don’t feel that I will have a better role than Walter White. In my eventual obituary – hopefully many, many years from now – it will read, ‘Breaking Bad actor explodes’ – however it goes. That’s not a bad way to go.”
Check out some highlights and a full list of the winners below.
Jennifer Lopez has three failed marriages under her belt but she is still very optimistic about love.
She’s been dating that young thing Casper Smart practically since she announced her divorce last year.. and they might be planning something special for this Christmas. They were spotted checking out engagement rings at Tiffany’s in Perth, Australia where she is currently touring. See pics HERE.
If they do get engaged, this will be the SIXTH time that she’s accepted a proposal from a guy. Jenny gets around the block. And if they do get married, this will be lucky marriage #4 for J.Lo.
But remember how she and Marc Anthony got married? It was one of those top secret weddings where she invited people over and then surprised them with a wedding. And it was a surprise because she had just called off the wedding from Ben Affleck (giggle at the thought of Bennifer) and no one knew she was with Marc.
Entertainment Weekly has named Ben Affleck “Entertainer of the Year.” Other honorees include Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lawrence, Seth MacFarlane, Joss Whedon, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kerry Washington.
Ben told the magazine that his success means more to him now that he has a family, “When you have a family and children, you kind of see yourself reflected in them.”
He continued, “I want to make the kinds of movies that my kids are proud of. I have higher standards, in a way, for them.”
George Clooney is calling him, “an unbelievable comeback kid.”
He must be referring to Gigli…
