Kyra Sedgwick: Do you like her new 'family tattoo'? [Poll]

Kyra Sedgwick gave fans a reason to look a little "Closer" when she hit the SAG Awards red carpet Sunday: In addition to donning a revealing red Pucci gown, she was flashing a new "family tattoo."

Sedgwick, who along with husband Kevin Bacon presented the award for best ensemble performance in a comedy series at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, explained to E! News' Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet that the ink incorporated each family member's first initial: K forward and backward for Kyra and Kevin, T for son Travis, 22, and S for daughter Sosie, 19.

For the seventh year in a row, "The Closer" star was nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series -- a prize that this year went to Jessica Lange for "American Horror Story."

SAG Awards: Weinstein Co. parties with Streep, Williams, Dujardin

Sofia Vergara and Jean Dujardin get close after the SAG Awards

A good awards upset deserves a celebration, as the Weinstein Co. proved Sunday evening following the Screen Actors Guild Awards. 

Jean Dujardin of "The Artist" nabbed the male actor in a lead role prize over George Clooney in "The Descendants," making for good spirits at Harvey Weinstein's private dinner party on the patio of the Chateau Marmont.

Dujardin's win was a highlight, but the party's draw was the major nominated talent in attendance, including Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Michelle Williams and Bérénice Bejo. The ladies congregated over bubbly and toasted their respective work.

Flatbread, crab cakes and Dewar's cocktails abounded as Streep rendered everyone starstruck -- including Guy Pearce and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who weren't shy about being excited to meet her.

In her pink gown, Julie Bowen flitted near Williams and her pal Busy Philipps; Rose Byrne collected compliments on her Elie Saab pantsuit; and "Glee" guy Chord Overstreet rubbed elbows with the likes of Rumer Willis.

Sofia Vergara, animated as always, posed with Dujardin for photos on her smartphone and enjoyed a long chat with him -- with what we imagine was massive help from the actor's English translator.

SAG Awards: Chris Colfer on his fashion showdown with Meryl Streep

Awards fashion can be just as competitive as any nominee categories when it comes to shows like Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony. Just ask Chris Colfer and Meryl Streep.

We were tickled to learn both stars were sporting looks from British designer Vivienne Westwood, Colfer in a black tux from the Spring 2012 collection and Streep in a belted couture creation. 

While the two certainly weren't in the same style garment and wouldn't likely compete for fashion press, we asked the young "Glee" guy anyway: Who wore Westwood best?

"She did! She did!" Colfer told us emphatically at the the People/Entertainment Industry Foundation SAG Awards after-party, shocked to learn they'd been outfitted by the same house. "But I hope they put us in a magazine together."

Streep lost the female actor trophy to Viola Davis of "The Help," and the folks of "Modern Family" kept the "Glee" cast in their seats on Sunday. But looking good is the best revenge, yes?

Streep will continue on the road to the Oscars with her Margaret Thatcher biopic, "The Iron Lady." Colfer remains a regular on Ryan Murphy's high school musical, and is hoping to release his feature "Struck by Lightning" in the fall.

SAG Awards after-party: Brad and Angelina dine, 'The Help' shines

Brangelina-sag-awards

The Screen Actors Guild Awards serve as a halftime whistle in Hollywood's busiest season, between January's Golden Globes and February's Oscar gold -- making the SAG after-party something of a halftime show.

A lot of stars were blowing off steam as big winners including "The Help," "Modern Family" and "The Artist" mingled on Sunday evening.

The guild's annual gala, a partnership between People magazine and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, awaited guests from the telecast in a tented space just off the Shrine Expo Hall. An Old Hollywood theme permeated the event, enhanced by thick drapes, velvet booths and a throwback jazz band.

Brad Pitt didn't take home the night's big acting prize -- that went to "The Artist" lead Jean Dujardin -- but he seemed plenty comforted by partner Angelina Jolie. The actress-director picked at salad while chatting up Brad's "Moneyball" costar Jonah Hill.

If quality time with Jolie wasn't enough for Hill, the conversation was interrupted by an enthusiastic Armie Hammer, who like Jonah was nominated for male supporting actor in a drama.

"Well done!" Hammer offered Jonah. Nice to see that Armie's recent herbal issues haven't killed his rosy disposition. 

"The Descendants" cast camped right next to Team Pitt as Judy Greer and Shailene Woodley laughed and people-watched together. (George Clooney and Stacey Keibler made only the briefest party appearance.)

Always a good time, "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen entertained her cast with bawdy jokes a few feet from a mixed bag of "30 Rock" and "Bridesmaids" stars. These combined forces were pleasing to a svelte Jane Krakowski, who snapped tons of pictures with her smartphone. 

Yet no one had a night like the stars of "The Help" had: Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer considered their statuettes in the cast's private booth, while Emma Stone and Allison Janney chatted up director Tate Taylor.

Jon Cryer: 'I didn't expect to still be on a show,' he says

Jon Cryer needs a better game plan when it comes to compliments, he noted on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday.

When it comes to the things that other actors tell him, "I forget all of the compliments, and it's really unfortunate," he said, "because when I'm riddled with self-doubt, those would really be handy."

However, getting fired from his first job did gives him strength, he said, after an industry acquaintance told him, "I don't respect anybody who hasn't been fired at least once."

"I really took that to heart, because it's a business that's very silly and you just cannot take it personally and that's been a great source of confidence for me, oddly, that ... you'll get the parts you're right for."

His SAG nomination for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy -- the award went to Alec Baldwin for "30 Rock" -- was a first for the "Two and a Half Men" star.

"I can't say this is where I expected to be ... I didn't expect to still be on a show. ... But for an actor, that's kind of life anyway. ... You get used to rolling with the punches."

SAG Awards 2012: Viola Davis loves being an actor's inspiration

Viola Davis at the SAG Awards 2012

Viola Davis knew one thing for certain on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet: The thing she loves to hear most from another actor.

" '[Y]ou inspire me.' "

"I love that, I love that word," said "The Help" star Davis, who won the Actor for female in a leading film role later in the evening. "Because so often actors are not inspired. So many leave the profession. And it's always inspiration that keeps you in, that keeps you motivated and lets you know that you're on the right path."

"I love when actors say that to me."

Perhaps her win Sunday night will be even more of an inspiration.

For Dick Van Dyke, who presented a lifetime achievement award to Mary Tyler Moore on Sunday night, one compliment stands out among his decades of accolades.

"[M]y idol, Stan Laurel, said that he would like me to play him in his life story, and that was the biggest kick I ever had," Van Dyke said Sunday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where he planned to "ad lib a lot" in presenting Moore's award.

Turns out getting that presenter gig was more nerve-racking than he might've imagined.

"I didn't realize that the person gets to pick the presenter, and I said, 'Well, she has to pick me.' But," he noted with a smile, "she took a couple of weeks, and it had me chewing my nails."

Alec Baldwin to 'Modern Family': 'I'm pitching myself to you guys'

As "Modern Family" cast members took their group shot at the Los Angeles Times' Photo Booth, male actor in a comedy series winner Alec Baldwin used the opportunity both to acknowledge two other thespians in his category — and to look for his next TV job.

"You know, my show is almost over," Baldwin said, eyeing fellow nominees Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet. Baldwin clarified: "I'm actually pitching myself to you guys."

However, never one to hold back, he joked as he watched the ensemble pose: "Look at them. So young, so talented, so smug."

So what in the world does a person do with six Actor statuettes? "I'm building an addition to my house with them," he quipped as he moved to get his own picture taken.

Not a bad idea from a guy who has also toyed with the idea of running for mayor of New York City — a concept that had most media backstage more interested in Baldwin's opinion on the Republican candidates for president than any plans for his new trophy.

"The Republicans are nervous that if they don't have a real red-state type of candidate like a [Newt] Gingrich, then they're not going to get the Christian right to come to the polls and they'll lose to Obama in a head-to-head election," he said.

SAG Awards 2012: Christopher Plummer isn't talking Oscar

Christopher Plummer at the SAG Awards 2012

Veteran actor Christopher Plummer, who won for supporting male actor in a drama at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night, won't dare even think about the possibility of taking home an Oscar in the coming weeks.

"I can't talk about that yet," he said of the upcoming ceremony. "That's miles down the road."

Plummer is nominated for his role as Hal Fields, a 75-year-old art expert who surprises his son Oliver (played by Ewan McGregor) by revealing he's gay.

When a reporter backstage at the Shrine Auditorium pressed the 82-year-old actor about whether an Oscar was an award he desired to win, Plummer could only scoff at such "an awful question."

Before letting out a chuckle, he said: "No. I think it's frightfully boring." Then, getting serious, he added: "[Actors] don’t get into this business preoccupied by awards. If we did, we wouldn’t last five minutes."

In his acceptance speech, the actor thanked his wife, Elaine Taylor, for saving his life. Elaborating backstage, Plummer said it was because of her that he put down the bottle.

The idea of putting a stop to drinking seemed absurd, at the time. "What on Earth am I going to do?" he recalled thinking. "I was really going downhill. She saved my life … I'm here now.”

Julianna Margulies pleased she didn't prep a SAG Awards speech

 

Is Julianna Margulies getting a little too relaxed these days? She was, after all, actually nominated for female actor in a drama series for her work on "The Good Wife."

"This year I'm very relaxed because there's no chance that I'm winning, so I didn't have to prepare a speech, and I'm so happy to be here and just see my friends."

(Also nominated in the category were Kathy Bates, Glenn Close and Kyra Sedgwick, plus Jessica Lange, who took home a Golden Globe Award two weeks ago for her work in "American Horror Story.")

PHOTOS: SAG Awards 2012 red carpet arrivals

An added bonus in the middle of the lengthy award season? "It's a short awards show, so we can just enjoy it ... without lingering."

And then cap it off with a glass of Champagne.
