SAG Awards 2016: Five best moments of the night

From Tina Fey and Amy Poehler taking the starch out of Leonardo DiCaprio to E! ambushing Bryan Cranston with ‘Baywatch’ photos, these are the moments made the night on the 2016 Display Actors Guild Awards:

1. In paying tribute to Carol Burnett, who received the SAG Lifetime Success Award, Fey and Poehler also paid tribute to comedy itself: “Comedy is much more difficult than drama. Comedic actors must do the whole lot dramatic actors do too, but quicker, and incessantly with a chimp. Mr. Michael Keaton knows what I’m talking about. … And while we’re at it, let’s all calm down about Leonardo DiCaprio and the way onerous it was once to shoot ‘The Revenant.’ So you slept in a horse and ate bison liver. Carol would have slept in that horse, worn it, achieved a tune and a dance and made a a lot funnier face after eating something that disgusting.” 

2. “Ladies and gentleman, welcome to various TV,” said Idris Elba as he offered his personal “Beasts of No Nation” for best dramatic ensemble. The movie was shut out of the Oscars, part of a rising outrage in regards to the lack of diversity at the Academy Awards. (Elba won two SAG Awards Saturday, for perfect supporting actor in a film for “Beasts of No Nation” and best possible actor in a TV film or miniseries for “Luther.”)


3. The cri de coeur of the night (after range) was once the Flint, Mich., water trouble, incomes impassioned shout-outs from “Orange is the new Black” Superstar Laverne Cox on the pink carpet and “Spotlight” winner Michael Keaton at the podium: “This Is actually for the disenfranchised far and wide,” he told the group after the movie concerning the pedophile priest duvet-up in Boston received for very best dramatic ensemble. “That Is for every Flint, Mich., on the earth. That Is for the powerless. That Is for the highly effective who make the most of the powerless, and which you can grasp me for that, I Do Not actually care.”

4. And Then there used to be “Trumbo” Star Bryan Cranston on the pink carpet, pretending to cry when being confronted with an ancient clip of him showing on “Baywatch.” (Regrettably, no longer in a Speedo.) When asked if he notion he’d be an Oscar nominee when capturing that scene, Cranston answered, “No. I imagine my secret for that character is he had diarrhea.”

5. And in a “Stars: They’re just like Us!” moment, “Steve Jobs” nominee Kate Winslet is agape at 69-yr-previous Susan Sarandon’s cleavage — Sarandon wore a black bra beneath a white suit, sans shirt — while Michael Shannon looks on.
