The 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards is one of the biggest events of the year. With 13 nominations in five film and eight television categories, the annual premier show has turned into quite an extravagant production.
On Wednesday, HipHollywood had a chance to go behind the scenes and check out the SAG showroom at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles where crews prepared for Saturday’s big show. While the stage was being set up and lighting fixtures were being built in, we got exclusive details on who the stars will be sitting next to.
The crew from 12 Years a Slave, who has a total of four nominations, will be sitting directly across from the cast and crew of Lee Daniels’ The Butler, who garnered three nods. HipHollywood also learned that Kerry Washington will be sitting at the same table as Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, while the hilarious Tina Fey sits right behind.
For the night’s main dinner course, stars will be dining on a plethora of incredible dishes prepared by Wolfgang Puck. Filet mignon, Wild Alaskan King Salmon and homemade lavosh are just some of the items on the lavish menu.
During the BTS sneak peek, HipHollywood caught up with 30 Rock actor, Keith Powell, who shared his reaction to the show’s SAG nomination. “I feel so good,” Powell screamed. “It made me realize that I haven’t seen my cast in almost a year, and I miss them so terribly. I want to see my cast again.”
Also getting a chance to spend time with her co-stars on Saturday night, The Big Bang Theory star, Mayim Bialik, who is nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series. “It’s really scary being nominated. There’s a lot of pressure and expectation and it’s a possible public loss,” she told us. “It’s intimidating, but it’s a huge honor.”
Be sure to tune in for the live show on Saturday, January 18 on TBS and TNT at 8 p.m.
