No Country for Old Men Takes Top Honors at SAG Awards

Oh, look! An awards show. How unusual!

Blessed with a waiver by its striking brethren in the Writers Guild, the Screen Actors Guild was able to turn Sunday's SAG Awards ceremony into one of the only "real" awards shows of the year.

As has been the case throughout awards season, There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men were among the big winners, with Daniel Day-Lewis taking the lead actor trophy, and No Country taking the top prize of the evening.

Current events in Hollywood were mostly mentioned only in passing -- as with Steve Carell's crack about this year's SAGs being "the most glamorous and exciting ceremony in the history of the world" -- although Daniel Day-Lewis did pause to dedicate his award to Heath Ledger, calling the actor's Brokeback Mountain performance "perfect."
