TV and film's finest actresses stepped out for the Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA this evening. White was a huge theme with Glee's Lea Michele and Eva Longoria both donning neutral gowns — who do you think wore the trend well? Best actress winner Natalie Portman covered her bay bump in a fitted Azzaro while Amy Adams got wrapped up in a tight Hervé Leroux dress. Jane Krakowski upped the glamour with sparkle in her one-shoulder Badgley Mischka sheath. The accessories added a bit of sparkle to every ensemble, and Fab's taking a closer look at the amazing earrings.
The night wasn't all about neutrals though, with other stars stepping out in a spectrum of color. Tina Fey looked red hot in Oscar de la Renta and Mila Kunis was a standout in a similar hued Alexander McQueen. Modern Family's Sofia Vergara showed off her figure in a bright blue Roberto Cavalli while Claire Danes wore Louis Vuitton to accept her best actress statue for Temple Grandin.
Lots of ladies wore black for the event, but their looks were anything but basic. Mad Men's January Jones was ladylike in a lacy Carolina Herrera and Dianna Agron and Nicole Kidman also showcased the delicate detail in their dresses — who wore it best? Christina Hendricks, in L'Wren Scott, looked dramatic on her way into the show while funny woman Amy Poehler kept it simple in a short LBD. Make sure to weigh in on your favorites with all of Fab and Bella's Love It or Leave It polls!

The King's Speech won big at the SAG awards tonight! First, Colin Firth won the honor for outstanding male actor, then the film scored the award for outstanding cast in a motion picture. Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter stopped by the press room with their statues to talk about how the film has moved people, and why winning this particular award feels perfect for them.
- Firth, on why people have an emotional response to the film: "I've been hearing quite profound responses. They're very hard to anatomize and deconstruct and explain. One thing that pops in to my mind is that throughout the film, you are responding to interactions between people."
- Firth, on describing a particularly moving scene with Bonham Carter: "She just has to sit and watch and suffer as much as he suffers. It's Helena's face looking at my face. What moves people isn't so much my face but her face looking at my face. That's what I respond to when I watch it. It's watching other people respond to other people. No one's in a bubble in this film. It's a wonderful matrix of responses."
- Rush, explaining why he thinks people connect with the story: "I get texts from people from all over the English-speaking world and they all have quite, quite different responses. The storytelling doesn't seem to prescribe a fundamental response. People are allowed to connect with different things; the friendship; the failure one might have with communicating with other people. People have said [they've] loved it for its power of oratory . . . It's so great to hear a speech that galvanizes a country."
- Bonham Carter, on why the ensemble award feels special: "The great thing about being an ensemble is [that] we're all dependent on each other's talent. The most important thing about acting is listening. But that's what an ensemble is, is properly listening. For me it's the perfect award for us to receive."
After Christian Bale brought home the SAG award tonight — yet another statue for his supporting actor role in The Fighter — he hit the press room to talk about winning, playing Dicky, and an amazing birthday celebration!
- On playing Dicky: "The quiet roles are the hardest ones to be recognized for. [But] This was a loud role — I f**kin' loved it."
- On being grateful to his castmates: "Any performance is dependent on everyone else; it's a domino effect, a collective effort. . . to me I share this with all the other actors."
- On how it feels to win the award on his birthday: "Pretty freaking good."
- On his love for acting: "I got into it early, I would say too early. [But] I had that addiction to it; there's that empathy, getting to walk in other people's shoes. From a psychological perspective, I just find that fascinating."
- On what he'd do if he weren't an actor: "Go nuts, probably."
- On his respect for boxing: "I think there's that element of people laying themselves on the line. That rawness, that vulnerability, that absolute win, or absolute loss. The struggle — I think that [is something] most people can understand, which is so beautifully played out in boxing."
- On other actors that inspire him: "Robert Duvall, one of the finest there's ever been. Gary Oldman, friend of mine, one of the finest as well. Melissa [Leo], Amy [Adams] as well.
Claire Danes is a bona fide award season darling; she won the outstanding actress in a miniseries SAG tonight for her role in Temple Grandin. After winning the Emmy and the Golden Globe for the film as well, she joked about the SAG feeling "excessive," but she also had lots of compliments for the woman she portrayed onscreen.
- On getting yet another award for Temple Grandin: [joking] "It does feel excessive at this point! No, no. This is a really extraordinary role, one that I'm not going to find again any time soon; a role of this complexity and depth. It was really intimidating. There were so many ways to get it wrong. But I found her so compelling and so inspiring that I just couldn't not take the risk."
- On being impressed with Grandin's life: "I think autism is more prevalent than anyone knew; so it's really important that we know what it is and how it works, and how to work with it. Temple was hugely instrumental in allowing that to happen. All of this attention for my work is wonderful, but I can't help but defer to her. She lived it, I played it. There's a difference."
- On the misconceptions of autism that she discovered from playing Grandin: "Most people assume that autistic people are not capable of empathy, and I cannot think of a more empathic person than Temple Grandin. She has dedicated her life to represented those who are misrepresented."
- On Grandin's support of her: "She was so open and so supportive and validating from the word go. I was so grateful for that. . . she's so generous and so sincere. Her authenticity is so disarming and so wonderful. She's my biggest cheerleader. And obviously, it's reciprocal."
- On which actors inspire her: "Meryl. You know, what are you gonna do? Meryl. I remember seeing Sophie's Choice when I was 9 or 10 — I was probably too young to be watching it, my parents are very liberal — that was revelatory for me. [It was] when I first learned that acting could be important."
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez enjoyed a sunset stroll on the beach in Malibu on Friday.
