The 2015 SAG Awards' Most Awkward Moments, Because That Clap Track Wasn't The Only Thing That Made Us Cringe
The SAGs stand for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but the "A" in the SAGs could just as easily stand for "awkward." We already witnessed some cringe-worthy 2015 SAG Award moments on the red carpet, but the show itself has definitely provided some awkward moments, too. From an applause track that seemed to appear out of thin air (and interrupted presenter and nominee Reese Witherspoon in the process) to last year's winner Jared Leto threatening to steal this year's winner Mark Ruffalo's trophy to that always-terrible "I'm An Actor" introduction segment, we've been watching a good amount of this year's SAG Awards through our fingers. (Seriously, this is starting to feel like an episode of The Office, isn't it?)
Here's what had us feeling anxious and uncomfortable during the 2015 SAG Awards ceremony:
Jennifer Aniston saying that she wanted to be Scarlett O'Hara during that perennially awkward "I'm An Actor" opener, and then declaring, "Oh well!" Well, OK then!
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series winner and Shameless star William H. Macy dissing the other men in his category in his acceptance speech with this sick burn: "To my fellow nominees... eh, forget it, you lost!"
The inexplicable laugh/applause track that went off while Reese Witherspoon was just trying to present an award.
Jared Leto calling The Normal Heart star and SAG winner Mark Ruffalo a "no show" on live television, and then threatening to to keep his trophy and "saw it in half and keep it forever." Just in case that wasn't enough, his co-star Julia Roberts said she was "tickled to her toes" that she got to work with him and also called out his absence and blamed it on the upcoming blizzard that's set to sock the Northeast. Jeez, Mark had better show up to the Oscars next month!
Carrie Fisher presenting her mother Debbie Reynolds with a Lifetime Achievement Award and proclaiming, "She has always been more than a mother to me... not much." Oof. Even more awkward, having her famous mom talk about their weird famous hairdos.
The Theory of Everything's Eddie Redmayne nervously, adorably stumbled and gave kudos to American Sniper star Bradley Cooper not once, but twice in his acceptance speech. Aw!
Poor Naomi Watts almost eating it on stage with her Birdman ensemble. Luckily for her, her co-star Zach Galifianakis stole the spotlight by riffing on Julianne Moore's acceptance speech from just a few moments earlier.
