At the SAG Awards, the stars get a few precious minutes to make their acceptance speeches. But that’s not their last say of the night. Next, they’re off to the press room backstage at the Shrine Auditorium. Read on for what the winners told reporters once they stepped offstage at the show on Sunday night – including Ben Affleck on Argo’s win in the top film category, Jennifer Lawrence on what she would tell her 14-year-old self and Bryan Cranston on what he hopes makes it into his obituary.

Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. The Searchers, Groundhog Day, Breathless, King Kong, Casino Royale, Touch of Evil, Caddyshack, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski — the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren’t about World War II. This year, we’ll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees.
The Film: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky’s emotional adaptation of his own seminal YA novel, starring Logan Lerman as titular wallflower Charlie, Emma Watson (in her first major post-Harry Potter role, unless you count My Week With Marilyn, which you shouldn’t) as his damaged dream girl Sam, and Ezra Miller as Patrick, Sam’s flamboyant and flamboyantly awesome stepbrother/best friend.
It will surprise no one to learn that Lindsay Lohan evidently was not invited to last night’s Golden Globes. But thanks to the Internet, we can know all of her thoughts on the event anyway — the Canyons star spent Sunday evening live-tweeting the ceremony, proving once and for all that the Globes are just as important as a presidential debate.
Lindsay kicked the night off by reminding us all that she was once the fresh-faced star of Mean Girls, thus inspiring the Twittersphere to contemplate its own mortality:
I am grateful to of had the opportunity to work with 2 amazing women who are people i admire, such as Amy Poehler & Tina Fey. xo—
Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) January 14, 2013
She went on to express controversial opinions about Damien Lewis (“he is incredible”), Paul Rudd (“Paul Rudd is the best. Ever”), and Jessica Lange, who is Lohan’s “FAVOURITE!” even though neither she nor Lange is British (or Canadian). A tiny bit of negativity crept in, though, when Lindsay sensed that somebody was disrespecting her iconic Prairie Home Companion co-star:
Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.
Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012′s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.
So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY
Good news for anyone who loves the ’90s and lives within a reasonable distance of Austin, the Portland of the Southwest: The year-old Austin Television Festival has announced that in 2013, its second annual event will feature cast (and crew!) reunions of gone-but-not-forgotten favorites including Boy Meets World, Friday Night Lights, My S0-Called Life, Party of Five, and American Dreams, a.k.a. That Show About The ’60s That Wasn’t Mad Men. All individual participants in these reunions have not yet been revealed, but chances are good that Scott Wolf, at least — who attended the fest in its inaugural year as well — will show up.

Tonight, you could gawk at one of the year’s biggest pageants, a spectacle featuring bold-faced names performing for an audience of celebrities and fashion victims… or you could watch the Video Music Awards. Nailed it!
True, MTV has moved up the VMAs so they don’t conflict with President Obama’s speech in the 10 p.m. hour. But watching the awards instead of the convention would still mean missing big moments like a speech from noted politician Eva Longoria, remarks delivered by World’s Least Boring Man John Kerry, and countless Joe Biden reaction shots. Then again, if you pick the convention, you risk not knowing which stars are pregnant and which ones are draped in snakes or desperation or whatever.
Decisions, decisions! Luckily, EW is here to help determine which major television event is right for you. Here’s our handy-dandy guide:
As a veteran host of both the Tonys and the Emmys, and with plenty of support last fall when the Oscar hosting job was up for grabs, Neil Patrick Harris can do little more to establish his claim to the title King of Award Shows. (The Muppets even had a reference to his reign as the host with the most!) But he is out to prove one thing as he promotes his next hosting gig: That the Tony statuette can produce just as many jokes as Mr. Oscar.
The How I Met Your Mother star is set to host the Tony Awards for the third time, airing live on CBS on Sunday, June 10.
Just in case you can’t remember that date, just watch the video below, which strings together bunch of ads for the show. After hearing “June 10” over 15 times, you better remember when you can tune into for this year’s celebration of

Why did the International Academy of the Digital Arts and Sciences choose Patton Oswalt to host this year’s 16th Annual Webby Awards? Oswalt has an inkling: “I look like the Internet personified,” he told an audience filled with celebrities, tech bigwigs, and humble entertainment journalists this afternoon. But Oswalt needn’t have been so self-deprecating. His jokes were uniformly well-received at Monday’s awards ceremony, especially when the comedian went off book. This, for example, is how Oswalt reacted after Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau accepted a statuette on behalf of Greenland.com: “I think winter just came!”
Oswalt, of course, wasn’t the only one loosing pithy quips. The Webbys enforce a strict five-word acceptance speech policy, which can lead to addresses both dull (“Thank you, Mom and Dad”) and inspired (Stephen Colbert, accepting the Person of the Year Award in ’08: “Me me me me me!”). Thankfully, memorable lines usually outnumber boring ones — and this year was no exception. Here’s a roundup of today’s most notable acceptance speeches:
On July 22, adolescents will briefly stop texting in order to celebrate their favorite movies, TV shows, musicians, sports stars, and more at the 14th annual Teen Choice Awards. Who are we kidding — they’ll be texting as they celebrate. The show’s nominee list was revealed today, and it’s filled with exactly what you’d expect: The Hunger Games, vampires, Justin Bieber, and more vampires.
The Hunger Games is going head-to-head with Twilight: The One With the Sex (a.k.a. Breaking Dawn Part I), as well as The Avengers, Mirror Mirror, and Wrath of the Titans in the Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy category. Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence racked up individual nominations as well, as did the Hunger Games book trilogy. Yes, there’s now a Choice Book award. Other nominees include the Twilight saga, the Divergent series, Nicholas Sparks’ The Lucky One, and…The Giver, which was first published in 1993, before most of today’s teenagers were born.
