The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were held in Los Angeles on Sunday 29th January, and the event was sparkling with its usual amount of stars and congratulatory words. The awards, honouring outstanding performances over the past year, consisted of five film and eight television categories. What we all wanting to know though, is who won?

There were some surprises, The Artist did not win EVERYTHING, as is expected at awards this year. Although Jean Dujardin did pick up the award for Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Leading role, pipping the likes of Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio to the podium. The biggest winner at these awards was actually The Help (cast pictured above), with a total of three. These included Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture, and Octavia Spencer beating Michelle Williams (My Week With Marilyn) and Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), among others, to clinch Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Leading Role.

A special moment was reserved for Dick Van Dyke to present Mary Tyler Moore with the Screen Actors Guild’s 2011 Life Achievement Award (pictured left). This award is designed to recognise both career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment, with previous winners including Ernest Borgnine, Clint Eastwood and Elizabeth Taylor.

 

 

Awards were also dished out to those in television series, including Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock and Jessica Lange for American Horror Story. The hilariously awkward Modern Family clinched a rather unsurprising, yet very well-deserved win, as the whole cast were recognised with the Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Comedy Series award (pictured right).

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and TV series Game of Thrones both received awards for stunt ensembles, which is well deserved seeing as they are both based in the supernatural world and it would be hard for us mere mortals to do some of those things…

There were plenty of gorgeous dresses and many awards. Brad and Ange were there, as well as couple Stacey Keibler and George Clooney. Among those presenting the awards were Kevin Bacon (pictured left), Bérénice Bejo and Natalie Portman. Here is the full list of nominees and winners:
