The Screen Actors Guild Awards – known better as the SAG Awards – are the fourth in the Awards Season lineup but they’re one of the most important according to those in the know (not us).
The Awards, which celebrate excellent people doing excellent things in movies and TV shows, are like the Golden Globes in that they give us a sneaky peek into who’s going to be taking home the golden statues that matter most – the Oscars.
But mostly it’s just an excuse for celebrities to borrow expensive jewellery and dazzling outfits. And for us to then look at said outfits and talk about them…. extensively.

Eddie Redmayne took home the gold for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in The Theory of Everything. Our favourite new show, Orange is the New Black also brought home the goods, winning the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast.

Other notable wins went to Downton Abbey, Birdman, Kevin Spacey and Patricia Arquette. Congratulations.
