SAG Awards 2015: Best & worst moments

SAG Awards 2015: Best and worst moments
The actors celebrated just the actors on Sunday night. And while Oscar tea leaves readers had much to interpret after the show, these men and women chose to live in the moment. For better and worse. Here’s a look at some of the best and worst moments during the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards. (Los Angeles Times; EPA; Getty Images)
Amanda Peet
Amanda Peet has a new series on HBO and a movie that just premiered at Sundance. Yet E! red carpet host Maria Menounos insisted on discussing her husband, David Benioff’s, show, “Game of Thrones.” So much for women supporting women. (Ethan Miller / Getty Images)
Emma Stone
Emma Stone’s voice, still raw from performing on Broadway in “Cabaret,” was so smoky on the red carpet it seemed she was one answer away from spewing flames, Smaug style. (Al Seib / Los Angeles Times)
Uzo Aduba
Uzo Aduba won for her role as “Crazy Eyes” on Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” and told the crowd the day she got the role she had quit acting. The show later won ensemble in a comedy series. That’s good timing. (Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times)
J.K. Simmons
J.K. Simmons may play a tyrant in “Whiplash,” but when he picked up an award for the movie, he took a moment to recognize all 49 actors who also appeared in the film. Classy move. (Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times)
William H. Macy
William H. Macy may seem like an awards show perennial, but he hasn’t actually won a SAG or Emmy since 2003. “I have written so many great acceptance speeches that I never got to give,” said the (prepared) speechless Macy. (Vince Bucci / Associated Press)
Frances McDormand
“Olive Kitteridge” winner Frances McDormand has been at the podium a time or two, so she chose to spend her SAG time giving the hard sell on her HBO miniseries. “You can stream it -- I don’t know how. You can watch it on an intercontinental flight, I’m told.” (Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times)
Viola Davis
The “How to Get Away With Murder” star was thoughtful and emotional about her win, telling the audience, “Thank you for thinking a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me.” (Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times)

Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds showed the crowd where Fisher got her wit by delivering an open, heartfelt and delightfully wacky speech that even included a dig at her daughter’s famous double-bun hairdo from “Star Wars.” Get these two a Broadway show. (Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times)
Eddie Redmayne
Eddie Redmayne won for playing one of the greatest scientists of our time, Stephen Hawking. But he definitely sent mixed messages when he told the crowd he gave up science when he was 14. It’s not too late, Eddie. STEM needs anyone it can get. (Paul Buck / EPA)
Naomi Watts
Emma Stone, left, Amy Ryan, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton (plus Andrea Riseborough and Michael Keaton, not pictured) won for “Birdman.” But Watts nearly made headlines for a near-J. Law-like tumble on the way to the microphone. Acting is dangerous stuff no matter where you are. (Kevork Djansezian / Getty Images)
