Film, TV thesps in group-encounter sesh

More than just an Oscar predictor, kudofest raises profile of profession

Quickly closing upon its eighth gathering on March 10, the Screen Actors Guild Awards remains a relatively new event on the kudofest circuit. It has a few decades to go before reaching Oscar and Globe longevity, but the show is already an important piece of the award season puzzle.

It’s also one hell of a party.

Despite actors’ reputation for, well, acting in social situations, most of the hugging and kissing on SAG’s big night seems genuine.

Maybe that’s because the event offers

actors an opportunity to talk shop and

mingle with those in their profession.

Many who work in television never meet their film counterparts. Here, thesps get a chance to nosh, say hi and acknowledge each other’s work. Picking up a few trophies can’t hurt either.
