Glenn Close won Best Actress at the SAGs in a Ralph Lauren pantsuit: boss?

Glenn Close won Best Actress at the SAGs last night. Olivia Colman didn’t show up, but I hope she comes to the Oscars at least. The Oscar is pretty much a lock for Glenn in this, her seventh nomination. Of course she’s due, as is Amy Adams, but her performance in The Wife is so deserving. I saw it over the weekend and I was blown away. There were parts that pissed me off, but that was only due to the fact that I cared about the characters. I can’t believe The Wife didn’t get nominated in the Best Picture category. (You can see Glenn’s acceptance speech here. Someone yelled “Gary Oldman” before Gary announced the winner and it was weird.) Glenn had on an incredible white Ralph Lauren pantsuit with loose trousers and a fitted tuxedo jacket. She was also wearing her grandmother’s wedding ring. She said on the red carpet that her grandmother wanted to be an actress and that Glenn didn’t even know this when her grandmother was alive.


Melissa McCarthy was also nominated for Best Actress, for her work in Can You Ever Forgive Me. (Can’t wait to see that, I’ve preordered it!) This was her third SAG nomination and it’s also her third Oscar nomination. She was in a silver sequin Lorane gown. This was one of the gowns that just looked so detailed and pretty on camera. When I see beadwork like this I wonder how many hours it took.

Patricia Arquette won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Escape from Dannemora. I don’t have an ID on her gown but it looks like Vivienne Westwood to me. I love the criss-cross draping along the bodice. During her speech she warned actors to make sure they were getting paid fairly. She also thanked Robert Mueller. She said “some production companies are not paying people their overtime, and their meal penalties. Start taking pictures of your schedule G and your call sheet.



Patricia Clarkson was nominated for Supporting Actress for Sharp Objects. She was in a cream Zuhair Murad Couture gown with bronze beading and full length sleeves. I like this gown in theory, the details are so bold and they work together. However it needs different styling and the color makes her look washed out.


My bitches Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin went together to the SAGs of course. They were both nominated for Female Actor in a Comedy. Jane was in a full length scalloped sequin red Valentino gown. I might like this better without the bell sleeves. It looks vaguely fish-like as is though. Lily was in a black sequin tuxedo jacket and floor length skirt. I love how they pose!

      Glen Close should have won Oscars years ago for several performances. IMO
      I hope she Wins this year, finally.

      Did you know Glen Close is an Aristocrat , seriously, I don’t mean the movie, lol, but her family are old moneyed, Aristocrats. Post Cereal, Merriweather Post, Merrilynch.

    Glann looks awesome! I like Melissa’s too.

    • Josephine says:

      I really like Melissa’s. To me, it was one of the best of the night. She could use a little more make-up or color in her make-up, though.

      I’m oddly entranced by Jane Fonda’s dress. She rocks red, and I think I kinda love that dress despite its oddness.

  3. Lightpurple says:

    Glenn looked positively radiant last night. That pantsuit was fantastic. She was my Best Dressed for the evening. And she deserves these awards, not just because she is years overdue, although she is, but her performance in The Wife is truly deserving on its own.

  4. Becks1 says:

    Glenn looks fabulous. I am one of those who before this awards season didn’t realize she hadn’t won an Oscar. I hope this is her year – not just for her overall body of work but because the reviews of the Wife are so positive.

  5. Digital Unicorn says:

    Glenn always looks fab and am glad she won – roll on Oscar night and for Gaga’s theatrics when she doesn’t win.

  6. Gigi La Moore says:

    Patricia Arquette.

  7. Ash says:

    Melissa has only been nominated twice for the Oscars not three times.

  8. Heather says:

    Is Lily Tomlin wearing a skirt? I think she’s wearing pants.

  9. EBS says:

    Patricia Arquette was wearing Siriano! He posted it on his Instagram!

  10. tempest prognosticator says:

    Every one of these ladies look wonderful. Melissa is stunning! Patricia’s dress is beautiful. If she were standing in front of a black or colorful backdrop she wouldn’t look washed out.

    • Blair Warner says:

      Would love to see Patricia’s with her arms down – I think the sleeves would fall like a cape of awesomeness. Off to search for pictures!

  11. Melania says:

    I’m so happy for Close! I can’t wait to see her winning her Oscar

  12. Jamie says:

    When the camera went to Melissa McCarthy during her category, the way her husband looked at her made me swoon. They are such a sweet couple.
    I would root for her but this just has to be Glenn Close’s year! Has to be.

  13. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    I love all of these ladies!

    I read a fairly interesting book by Glenn Close’s sister. They were in a cult as children and often raised by strangers. There’s a large age gap between Glenn & this sister. Anyway, she had a rough time (the little sister; I cannot recall her name) and later diagnosed with some serious mental illnesses. It was sad, but I’ll say one thing. Glenn always had her little sister’s back and paid for the best care around, over & over.

    I forget the name of the cult – I’m really batting a thousand eh? But I think I recall it was BEFORE Scientology, and I wouldn’t doubt LRH “borrowed” some of its idealogy. It’s defunct now.
