Unlike years previous, the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards went completely virtual this year. Where stars would usually show up flaunting their best on the red carpet, they all had to spend the virtual ceremony in their own homes. Some celebrated from their gardens, while others celebrated from bed. When you’re a celeb, you do what you want!
The ceremony lasted just an hour, which many of the nominees were happy about. Unlike in-person award shows, these celebrities weren’t forced to indulge in small talk and embarrassing moments afterwards. Kaley Cuoco embodied this sentiment, earning a nomination for her stellar performance in The Flight Attendant on HBO Max. Unfortunately, she lost in the category of Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series, which Catherine O’Hara won for Schitt’s Creek instead.
After the loss, she logged out, hopped back into bed and drank her cocktails from the comfort of her blankets. She even shared a video of herself doing it. She also changed out of her gorgeous, pink Prabal Gurung gown and slipped into an old, baggy nightgown, with the caption, “Ending my night the way I always do. In my strange sleepshirt lol.” Why stuff yourself into uncomfortable garments when you could be getting sloshed in your own loungewear? Celebrities — they’re just like us.
Cuoco also shared that she was ecstatic about being able to attend her first award show with her dog, who normally wouldn’t be allowed on the red carpet.
Kerry Washington also had a grand evening, and was nominated for Best Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series for her role in Little Fires Everywhere. Her gown was a custom beaded Etno gown in blue, and it was paired with a scalloped swim cap a la Esther Williams. The aquatic-themed look was perfect for Kerry, complete with a low back and a sweetheart neckline.
Washington posted a photoshoot in her gorgeous garden because jumping into her swimming pool, gown and all. Fittingly, the caption paired with her post plunge pics read: “#SAGAwards are going swimmingly…#MermaidVibesAlways’. In another pre-plunge post, she wrote:
You gotta ditch the sweats when you’re surrounded by all the BEAUTY & BRILLIANCE in this category.
