Bryan Cranston after winning, checking his make-up

Every year,  I always consider the Screen Actors Guild Awards to be the fairest. No matter how many mistakes the others – Oscars, Golden Globes, etc – make, because the SAGs always get it right. It’s the actors voting for their fellow workers, without considering if someone deserves something because of a movie made five years ago that did not get recognition or because “it´s about time” – here’s looking at you, The Reader‘s Kate Winslet.

I am generally happy about this year’s awards. Breaking Bad? checked. Lupita winning? checked. Emma Thompson being hilarious and charming? checked. Game of Thrones cast reunion? checked. I am just a bit angry about Modern Family winning two awards when 30 Rock had such a splendid final season. It is a show that makes me laugh, but Tina Fey’s creation was much better. Things I will never understand.
