So, without any further delay, let's delve into the standout moments from the 2024 SAG Awards.

5. Nostalgic The Devil Wears Prada Reunion    


Legendary Meryl Streep took center stage at the SAG Awards to present the Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series Award. She was also joined on stage by her two minions, Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway, from the iconic film, the Devil Wears Prada.

As Streep proceeded to open the envelope to announce the winner for the aforementioned category, she said, “It's an age-old question — where does the character end and the actor begin?” Emily Blunt was quick to connect it to Streep’s character in the film. “As we've just seen, Meryl and [her Devil Wears Prada character Miranda Priestly] are sort of like twins.” 

Hathway, who wore a gorgeous cerulean blue dress for the occasion too jumped at the opportunity saying, “No, no, that wasn't a question.”

As Billie Eilish and Melissa McCarthy took the stage to present an award together, the latter begged the What Was I Made For singer to sign her face, and Eilish, being Eilish, showed no hesitation to oblige. She grabbed the sharpie and covered McCarthy’s mouth to make her stop talking and signed her forehead. She [Billie Eilish] did not even flinch.  

3. Tipsy Pedro Pascal was at his best at the 2024 SAG Awards 


“This is wrong for so many reasons," Pedro told the audience as he began his acceptance speech for Male Actor in a Drama Series award.

He went on to confess, “I'm a little drunk. I thought I could get drunk…I’m making a fool of myself, but thank you so much for this!” 

Pascal continued, “I've been in the union since 1999, so this is an incredible fu—ing honor. To the nominees, all of you, I can't remember any of your names right now.”

We get it now, Anne Hathaway, we would've cried too if we heard that in person. 

Streisand, 81, is best known for The Way We Were (1973), A Star is Born (1976), The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), and more.
