The help’s night out

Celebs celebrate after the SAG Awards

Definitely, some of the biggest buzz of the SAG Awards — no, make that gasp — were Jean Dujardin’s win over George Clooney Sunday night, and “The Help,” beating “The Artist” for ensemble. That buzz continued after the TNT telecast and into the luxurious tent erected next to the Shrine for the awards after-party, sponsored by People and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.

There in the tent, two sets of revelers quickly developed. The smokers, led by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, settled comfortably into plush banquettes in the open-ceilinged section, while the dancers headed to the central section, where the band Impulse did covers of everyone from Maroon 5 to Michael Jackson all night long.

“I can’t think of the Oscars at all!” said winner Christopher Plummer.

“I’m so pissed that we lost!” said Missi Pyle of “The Artist.”

Larry Hagman and his trademark “Dallas” white hat held court on the Turner couch with a receiving line of well-wishers. But there was one actress whom Hagman specifically asked to meet: Tilda Swinton, who was summoned in seconds and seemed to have a good ol’ chat with him.

Meanwhile, nominee Jonah Hill indulged in a make-out session with Ali Hoffman (Dustin’s daughter). Hill only had eyes for Hoffman, despite being seated right next to Pitt and Jolie, the object of nearly everybody else’s attention.

Meryl Streep and Julianna Margulies shared a joke, while Jon Cryer hovered nearby, waiting to get a word in. And all “The Help” gals gathered in their reserved section, which soon looked like a store for SAG statues.

Davis’ white strapless Marchesa gown was a knockout, as was Sofia Vergara’s skin-tight raspberry number, also by Marchesa. Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, is the designer for the label, and it was no surprise that the movie mogul made sure to say hello to both ladies before heading to his own bash at Chateau Marmont, where he would greet “The Artist” gang, as well as his “My Week With Marilyn” leads Kenneth Branagh and Michelle Williams.

Weinstein and company weren’t the only ones heading west.

“Someone told me there’s a party, some place called the Chateau,” said Chris Lowell of “The Help.” “I hear that’s a cool place, right?”

And with that question, the Gotham-based thesp took off, ensemble trophy in hand. Hope he didn’t run into Missi Pyle.
