Thesps celebrate SAG victories

'Modern Family,' 'King's Speech' winners hit the town

After the Screen Actors Guild Awards, most celebs filed into the big brown-and-purple tent behind the Shrine Auditorium, scene of the People magazine/Entertainment Industry Foundation gala.

Betty White and Ernest Borgnine, the night’s elder statesmen honorees, stopped in and settled into one of the designated VIP couch pits, while nearby the trophy-winning “Modern Family” kids — Ariel Winter, Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould — danced up a storm to the music of Impulse.

Across the room, Julianna Margulies enjoyed her win with “The Good Wife” co-stars Archie Panjabi and Josh Charles, and Claire Danes snuggled happily with hubby Hugh Dancy.

The talk of the night was another snuggly couple, as all eyes were on Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, whose public displays of affection caused quite the stir. “Where’s Jessica Biel?” someone whispered pointedly.

Jane Lynch and Lara Embry filled a section with the disappointed “Glee” club. As Lynch said with a smile as she and her wife waited patiently for their limo in the long pick-up line outside the tent, “Oh well, you can’t win them all!”

Over at WeHo’s Sunset Tower Hotel, “The King’s Speech” crowd gathered to celebrate at the Weinstein Co. party. “For me personally, it couldn’t top last night. Last night was the night of my life,” helmer Tom Hooper said, referring to his DGA award win on Saturday. “But it’s still pretty damn good.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson said the “Modern Family” cast was thrilled but felt a little embarrassed to be the only winners carrying around the Actor trophy.

“I brought it in as my ticket, so now we’re like the assholes who brought it into the party,” he quipped.
