The SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards were held last night in Los Angeles and the list of nominees and winners were very diverse and a nice change of pace. The acceptance speeches were very moving and they gave a Life Achievement Award to one of my favorite funny ladies of all time, the great Carol Burnett! I grew up watching her show and I’d watch them any time now if they were still on TV and laugh just as hard. Those shows are truly legendary!
The red carpet though was a whole different matter, some of those styles left me pretty speechless and not in a good way. As a matter of fact, I think I can remember saying, “what were they thinking, or what was their stylist thinking…….or that person can’t have a stylist!” At any rate I’ve provided a couple of links below of some of the looks from the red carpet so you can see for yourself and form your own opinion. I choose two links to feature some of the guys as well:

FASHIONS AT SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
I have always wanted to go to the Sundance Film Festival. I applied to be a volunteer a few years ago but couldn’t attend due to a personal family emergency. I’ve never been to Utah either and I hear that it’s very beautiful there as well. Fashion is now as much a stable of conversation as the films at Sundance are now and has gone the way of Coachella when it comes to originality. What’s also a new change is the diversity factor among in-competition actors and their guests. It appear that this year’s films have come from a large number of African American, Middle Eastern, Asian producers, directors, star and more racially diverse performers.
As a matter of fact a film by Nate Parker (making his directorial debut), “The Birth of a Nation,” swept the top prizes at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Awards Saturday night in Park City, Utah. The film, which received a standing ovation during its screening, is centered on the true story of how slave Nat Turner led a rebellion in 1831. Fox Searchlight announced last Tuesday that they were successful with their record-making $17.5 million bidding war to acquire the film’s worldwide distribution rights. The studio expects to release the project by Parker, who also wrote, produced and starred in the film, later this year. Well, all I have to say about that is “BRAVO”!
