Thank you Screen Actors Guild for spicing up the 2012 Awards season. The 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired last night on TNT and TBS, and it definitely offered up some surprises.

The first two awards of the night went to Christopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer respectively for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. (No surprise there!)

Spencer’s acceptance speech was very comical, especially when she tried lifting her 12-pound plus award numerous times unsuccessfully.

Betty White took home the Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for Hot in Cleveland. The beloved White received a standing ovation from the audience and shared her award, which she won last year as well, with her cast mates.

Viola Davis wins the Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Dick Van Dyke presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Mary Tyler Moore. At this point, I was all about ready to call it a night. Then, the stunning Natalie Portman graced the stage to announce the winner for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. Like I said in earlier posts, I thought George Clooney had this in his back pocket, but Jean Dujardin unsuspectingly walked away with the Actor for his role in The Artist. (side note: Brad Pitt looked very pleased that George didn’t walk away with the win)

Even more of a surprise was the following category of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, which Viola Davis won for her role in The Help.

Finally, the biggest surprise of the night belonged to the category of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture which went to The Help. The film dominated the show taking home 3 awards.
