“And the actor goes to …” 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards Recap (Pocket-Sized)

“We are living in a watershed moment in time and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.” — Kristen Bell, 2018 SAG Awards Host

Ahh yes, another award show where actors toot their own horns by giving awards out to one another. However, here I am watching, but if I must watch, then I must critique! Don’t worry though, my critiques won’t be too tiresome; this is only a small batch, pocket-sized post! First up is Kristen Bell. She’s quoted above because she hosted the award show and was actually the show’s first ever host.  I just love love love love, love her so much. For all her great moments from the show, click here!

What I Learned

The thing I like most about the SAG Awards is it’s actors recognizing and awarding actors, which has to be a huge compliment right? I can only imagine if I went to an award ceremony for teachers, with the awards being presented by fellow teachers. That would have to be an extremely large pill to swallow because teachers do not like to credit other teachers (not all, some, okay most, hopefully I’m not offending all my teacher readers right now; please don’t leave). But it’s easier, probably in any profession, to celebrate one’s own acheivements, rather than recognize others.

“My students scored this score on the state test” or “Look at this wonderful email a parent sent me telling me what a great job I do.” I’m sure actors are the same: “My movie made this much money” or “Look at the great review my movie received.” So, I would imagine winning an SAG Award is a big deal because people who usually want to brag on themselves this time want to brag on you!

Shout out to some of my favs on winning: This Is Us, Sterling K. Brown, Claire Foy, and Nicole Kidman!

What I Loved

Mother, freaking, girl power. I knew that Bell being the first ever host as a woman was a huge deal, and I knew the show was branded as “female-powered.” But, it wasn’t until the next day I realized, “Oh wow, only females presented!” It was really awesome to see; read more here!

What I Remembered

Still disappointed in myself as I have yet to see any of the films nominated this awards season; I’m such a failure.

Fashion

I guess the “let’s all wear black” protest was over because there were many hues to found on the SAG red carpet. My picks for best dressed went to Kristen Bell (her red carpet look; she had quite a few wardrobe changes as host’s normally do, but actually looked amazing in all of them!), Nicole Kidman, Samara Weaving, and Yara Shahidi (pantsuit with a train for the WIN!)

My favorite looks of the night!

 

 

I really hate to have a worst dressed list because I get it, “fashion is art” and shit but low and behold here they are. Millie, you may be thirteen, but you can’t wear your Chucks to an award show; sorry, you can’t. I don’t even have to explain why I hate Kate’s dress, I mean you have eyes right? Same with Kate Nash. Maybe it was an off night for girls named Kate. Ugh, and Lupita almost made my list for best dressed until the camera panned down to the bottom of her dress. #nope (Her body looked sick though!)

Sorry ladies, not my favorite.

Lastly, why was Morgan Freeman wearing a hat?!

Moving Forward.

We have Oscar nominations tomorrow and the Grammys on Sunday! I love awards season!

Pocket-Sized Post: The Bachelor 22×3

As Chris Harrison said, “Time is precious” so I won’t waste your time today; this is a pocket-sized post: Bachelor edition.

As the episode started, there were 18 women, but I only have five points to make.

1. Tia over Bekah

Image result for the bachelor season tiaSo in the beginning I thought Tia was just there to be the next Raven and wasn’t genuine, but you know who I did think was so awesome and so genuine? Bekah. But, WHAT was I thinking?! I literally did a 180 on this thought based off the wrestling date (more about the wresting below).

I would have COMPLETELY acted like Tia did on that date: getting upset, not taking those dumb@$$, washed up, 1980’s wrestler ladies seriously, and awkwardly smiling the whole time, only to get scolded for it. In the end, Tia was a good sport about it because that’s really the only thing you can do in the situation. I’m so sorry Tia I misjudged you.

Now, Bekah. Ehck! I get she’s trying to be the “confident because I know who I am” type. Girl, you’re 22! You have no idea who you are, no matter how cool and hipster and trendy and old soul you try to be. OH! And what about her comment that Arie knows she doesn’t need him; WHAT! Oh stop with your pixie cut, I know Arie really likes me, confidence. So over you.

 

2. Lauren S for Bachelorette

Image result for lauren bachelor season 22I think since we saw her pack her suitcase before the date, we knew she was going home. However, I loved her! She’s so beautiful! Plus she wore tennis shoes with that gorg red dress at the winery; how many girls would have worn skinny heels instead? I feel like Lauren S. knows herself, is mature, and is honest. I think she knows herself so well, she knew it wouldn’t work with Arie. This led to her not being herself on the date, and then led to her leaving. What I think now is we should all rally to get her as the next Bachelorette!

3. Dog Date over Wrestling. Obviously. 

Seriously can you think of something worse to do than that wrestling date? The G.L.O.W. ladies were horrible to the Bach girls! Even Arie wasn’t down for the wrestling date, so WHY make the girls do it?! The only good part was we got to see Kenny for a short period; missed him!

4. UGH Anneliese.

If Anneliese doesn’t have a therapist, she’ll definitely need one after that kiss rejection: “We aren’t just there yet.” (And he didn’t mean yet; he meant never!)

5. Bibiana is a queen!

First, her mom gets dissed by those awful wrestling ladies (I really do not like them!). Then at the cocktail party, her setup got stolen by Arie; I mean let’s be honest, he took quite a few different women to that daybed and presented it almost as if he came up with it himself! THEN WE DIDN’T EVEN GET TO SEE THEM AT THE PARTY TOGETHER!  Finally, she was the only one sent home out OF 17 PEOPLE! When Bibiana left she said, “I deserve real love!” Remember girl, we all love you! At least we’ll be getting more Bibiana in February for the Bachelor  Winter Games!!

Pocket-Sized Post: T. Swift Endgame Video

Endgame by Taylor Swift feat. Future & Ed Sheeran

Welcome to the first “Pocket-Sized Post” on My Hollywood Hangover! Basically this just means I’m too lazy to write a drawn out post regarding my topic, and let’s be honest, some of you aren’t here to read a full post either.

On the first small batch edition, we’ll be discussing Taylor’s new video. “Endgame” was initially my favorite song on Reputation so I was totes excited for the new video. (For more thoughts on the album click here: …Ready For It? Reputation Review)! From Miami, to Tokyo, to London, here are a few things I learned from the video:

Taylor drinks now.

Image result for endgame music video

I get it; she’s 28 and MORE than old enough to have a few drinks. Plus she mentions drinking and whisky on the new album. But, won’t she always seem like the sweet, young, innocent Taylor to us all? But the video does seem like she’s shoving the fact that she enjoys a cocktail down our throats, like “Heeeey! Look at me! I’m all grown up!”

At the same time, she’s almost 30, so do you girl!

Katy Perry was not there.

But was totes rumored to be in the video, right … to prove they mended things? Did I just not catch her? If reports come out later that Katy is in the video, just hidden somewhere I’ll be pissed because I was searching hard for her.

Taylor wears a nude lip.

Yet she’s wearing it AT THE EXACT MOMENT THE SONG IS QUOTING “the proof from [her] red lips.”

She rocks many different hair styles.

See above gif. LOVE LOVE LOVE the straightened, deep part, look. And as always, Taylor looks awesome with her hair styled any way … except when it looks drowned … as in her scenes with Future.

Overall … I liked it.

Keep giving us something to talk about Taylor girl!
