SAG Award voters loved The Help

The SAG Awards had their little presentation last night, and the big story was The Help taking every award it was nominated for. I never saw it because it looked like a remake of The Blind Side, but my mom liked it, so there you go. I sort of expect the Oscars and the Golden Globes to skew towards things old people like since most of the voters are old, but I’m not sure what the SAG Awards’ excuse is. These are just a small step up from the People’s Choice Awards for Things People Have Heard Of. Meanwhile, Betty White won Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Hot in Cleveland. And I’m preeeetty sure that’s not even a show.
