The buildup to the Oscars continues, with the Screen Actors Guild Awards held Sunday, January 28th. Top movie releases and television shows vied for yet another piece of hardware to throw in the trophy case. Also at stake, another stab at swaying Academy voters' last second ballots.

The ceremonies were attended by film and television’s leading actors at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center. The honorees were selected by the active Guild membership nationwide.

Released by the SAG website, Julie Andrews was presented with Screen Actors Guild’s highest honor, the 43rd Annual Life Achievement

Honored with individual awards were Jennifer Hudson, Helen Mirren, Eddie Murphy and Forest Whitaker for performances in motion pictures and Alec Baldwin, America Ferrera, Jeremy Irons, Hugh Laurie, Helen Mirren and Chandra Wilson for performances in television.

Screen Actors Guild originated awards for the outstanding performances by a motion picture cast and by television comedy and drama ensembles. The Actor for a motion picture cast performance went this year to Little Miss Sunshine and the Actors for television comedy and drama ensemble performances went this year to The Office and Grey’s Anatomy. Kiefer Sutherland introduced a cinematic salute to SAG members who are “Heard but Not Seen”.

People magazine and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) hosted the Screen Actors Guild Post-Awards Gala for the eleventh consecutive year. This exclusive event honors the philanthropic causes and good works of the members of the Screen Actors Guild. The gala, benefiting the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, immediately followed the SAG Awards on the back lot of the Shrine Exposition Center.
