The headlines for Saturday night’s SAG Awards trumpet the diversity of the awards, honor the lifetime achievements of Carol Burnett, and talk highly of the winners from all the different avenues of media. Idris Elba and Jeffrey Tambor graciously accepted awards for powerful roles, Viola Davis commented on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy by bluntly saying that diversity is not a “trending topic,” and a lot of Oscars expectations got locked up.
But among the headlines stood a moment that was caught near the 7 P.M. mark of the event. A moment that has happened before in real life, but never among the glitz and glamour of a Hollywood awards show. A single act that seemed to stand out from the rest of the powerful statements to say, “hey, I’m just being me.” I’m talking, of course, about Leonardo DiCaprio and his vape pen. Right there, sitting next Kate Winslet and Alejandro Iñárritu, DiCaprio whips it out and goes to town. And the worst part? He makes it look cool.
