Awards season time! All the awards are gearing up and thanks to some nice bits of good fortune I was able to attend the SAG Awards red carpet in the bleachers! Scotty and Big Mike who I haven’t seen in forever, came out for the big event. Billy Beer and Erica, along with Ryan also got tickets for this as well.
I have no idea how this is going to go to be honest. I mean there are no guarantees and when you look and go, Nicole Kidman, the cast of Mad Men, Big Bang Theory, etc… I mean everyone will be here. It could be great or uber frustrating…
In my mind there’s going to be a bit of both.
After packing like pack mules for everyone and everything we all headed out for the big day.
We went though security, scanners, etc… Erica, Billy Beer and pretty much everyone else separated from us. They had fancy VIP tickets. We had the normal commoner tickets. LOL… Still thanks to Scotty and a really nice couple we talked to in line we got a decent spot at the end of the red carpet.
I was in the front a couple spots in, while Scotty and Big Mike scored spots on the side.
Who knows right?
It is rather fun to be watching everyone though. I will say. Plus, who knows what stars will show up?
The first people on the carpet were some entertainment hosts, I think Nancy O’Dell and a few others.
Kelly Osbourne is sporting some purple hair! I actually like it on her. It’s adorable!
The next person on the carpet is Jamie Alexander. I loved her in Thor and I will say, she looks amazing. I would have called out for her but I didn’t have anything for her.
And then I see the little girl who plays Lily on Modern Family. LOL…
A few more people and honestly forgive me but it’s starting to get a little overwhelming. I will try and keep up, lol…
Oh, there’s Busy Phillips! She’s coming by and I whip out my Cougar Town cast photo for her. She is so sweet and very pregnant! lol… She’s happy to sign and the autograph seal is broken! Hopefully, that means it’s going to be a good day!
Scotty is starting to trip! There’s Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne! He really wants to get him to sign a magazine insert. After a lot of pleading Eddie comes over and signs it for Scotty! Yay!
I see a few Glee people, and then suddenly, almost the entire cast of Nurse Jackie is coming down the carpet.
They are all really super nice. I start freaking out and pass out a bunch of my Nurse Jackie stuff to Scotty and Big Mike, we start waving everything and Paul Schulze sees me.
Paul comes right on over and signs everything and then Anna Deavere Smith comes over and signs everything, followed my Dominic Fumusa and then Arjun Gupta, Lenny Jacobson and finally I get Stephen Wallem’s attention and he signs everything as well.
Whew! I still need Eve Best and Merritt Wever but thankfully I have Edie Falco on everything but one piece! Whew!
Ahh Idina Menzel is here! Shit, I have a Wicked poster I’ve been dying to get her on… Shit! SHIT! The one thing I didn’t bring!
It’s literally so hard to spot people… I can’t even tell you how crazy this is!
There’s Johnny Galecki from Big Bang Theory. I have so much Big Bang shit, you have no idea. I’m really working on this Emmy promo laptop and Board Game.
Scotty and Mike help me flag down Johnny Galecki and he runs over and signs them both. Sweet! The Big Bang cast is hard man, they used to be easy but now… Not so much!
I see Nolan Gould signing autographs and I need him to finish off a Modern Family cast poster. I grab it really quickly and have him sign it along with another photo. Sweet!
It’s literally a line up of people. There’s Aaron Paul, Bryan Cranston, oh man!
Shit, Simon Helberg is leaving. Scotty and Mike again help me out and flag Simon over. he’s nice enough to sign both pieces as well. I haven’t gotten Simon Helberg to sign in probably at least two years.
Bryan Cranston! Scotty just yelled I didn’t even see him. He is so sweet. He comes right on over and signs for Scotty and he signs my Breaking Bad presskit and promo book. Such a nice guy!
Then Aaron Paul comes over! Again, super nice. I got him on a photo for Scotty because I didn’t bring anything for him.
Oh… More people! I see Melissa Rauch! And Kunal from Big Bang!
Again we all yell and Melissa comes on over, Scotty and Mike get Melissa on the laptop and game
while I whipped out my diorama and have Melissa sign on Penny’s apartment. I figure that works. LOL… Kunal runs over and signs for us as well.
Jim Parsons once again ignores everyone and walks right inside. Sigh…
We yell for Amy Poehler and she doesn’t even look. To be fair Amy is super nice and it’s really crazy.
There’s Michelle Dochery. Scotty yells out for her, he looks over at him, rolls her eyes and then walks away. Damn… Nasty.
Jennifer Garner comes by and ignores looking straight at us. Sigh…
There’s Tina Fey! I hold up my Baby Mama mini poster and yell… Tina looks over and says, “Sorry I can’t!” I couldn’t resist. It just comes out… I say, “Really? yes… Yes, you can! It’s just a rope!” Sigh…
Damian Lewis and Daniel Day Lewis are both here at the same time. Yelling out Mr. Lewis helped but neither would look over. I refused to yell for Claire Danes. She’s such a piece of work.
Amanda Seyfried is going in!
Big Mike grabs my Interview magazine and Scotty stops her. She is again really nice and signs for us!
It’s Jessica Chastain! She is going in and we call her over. She is the nicest, sweetest thing ever. I just love her! She takes her time and signs for us, even taking the time to personalize for us.
Nicole Kidman! I scream, and scream and scream and scream, Nicole looks over and me and Scotty and apologizes but says she can’t come over. She literally apologized three times, so even though she didn’t sign she really did make sure and acknowledge us. I love her.
I look over and two people down Russell Crowe is signing autographs. I almost shit. Thank God I was organized and see my little tab for Man of Steel and whip it out super quick. I told Russell how much I’m looking forward to it and he says it’s not going to disappoint. So nice! Man… That was amazing….
Sigourney Weaver is going in. Scotty has his Working Girl laserdisc and I have my Gorillas in the Mist mini poster. I know crazy. She looks over but doesn’t even wave. Damn.
The worst though, was Elisabeth Moss. I call out, she turns, looks at me with my Rolling Stone magazine and I swear she practically snarls at me. The look of disgust will probably forever haunt me. It was a little traumatic. I could be a tad melodramatic but it was really bad.
Ben Affleck and Hugh Jackman just ran right inside… Sigh… But the show is about to start which means our time is coming to a close.
Even though I didn’t get Nicole, i still had a nice day. It wasn’t the easiest of days and I don’t have a voice today, but it was fun. Getting the Nurse Jackie cast and the Big Bang people along with Russell Crowe has a real treat.
So, thanks again to Big Mike for getting us tickets..
Until next time kids…
