SAG Award Winners!

"There's no such thing as Greatest Living Actress," says Greatest Living Actress Meryl Streep after winning the Screen Actor's Guild Award for Best Actress for "Doubt."

How could anyone not adore this woman? She didn't even wear a freakin' dress. Who else could get away with that? And who else could topple some seriously strong contenders and manage to deliver yet another straight-from-the-gut, off-the-cuff speech that both honors and entertains them all? Nobody kids, nobody.

Congratulations to Meryl Streep, my favorite winner from last night's awards and the fiery lead player from the most well acted film of 2008. And congrats to Kate Winslet, another SAG winner who, in a twist of categorical fate, will see to it that Meryl's win last night will likely be her last major award of the season. Really, could you ask for two better ladies to be sharing/duking it out for all these top prizes? Meryl was right -- it's a great year for "the girls."
