It's a pretty safe bet that when the Screen Actors Guild announces its film ensemble award nominees Wednesday morning, we won't be seeing the casts from "All Is Lost" or "Gravity" on the list. When it comes to this award, SAG voters are all about quantity. For five years running, the film ensemble winner has gone to the movie with the most cast members cited. This has led to some odd choices. Personally, I'm partial to the ensemble led by Daniel Day-Lewis over the one headed by Ben Affleck, but again, it seems to be a numbers thing.

“All right, all right, all right.” These words from the 1993 film “Dazed and Confused” put Matthew McConaughey on the map as an actor -- and returned Sunday night as he  took the stage to accept his best actor Oscar for “Dallas Buyers Club.” After thanking the motion picture academy -- “all 6,000 members," fellow nominees and “Dallas Buyers Club's” director and cast members -- a humbled McConaughey listed the three things he...

"New Girl" actress Hannah Simone's 1960s hair and makeup at the Screen Actors Guild Awards go perfectly with her floaty, white Marchesa gown. And her makeup look is a lesson in cheap-chic red carpet cosmetics. Makeup artist Marina Gravani used Pixi by Petra products from Target, each of which sells for less than $28. Gravani started with the line's Flawless Beauty Primer, applying it just to the cheekbones and bridge of the nose for what she calls a “lit-from-within glow.” She dusted a light layer of Flawless Vitamin Veil over Simone's entire face and focused on brightening the actress' eyes with Eye Bright Kit concealer applied to the inner corner of the eye area.

Would she or wouldn't she? If she won the Oscar for lead actress, would Cate Blanchett utter the "W" word? Fairly or not, that was a question surrounding the star of "Blue Jasmine," who took the trophy for her portrayal of a fallen New York socialite in writer-director Woody Allen's latest film. On the way to Oscar, Blanchett swept up practically every acting award this season - winning lead actress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Golden Globes, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, the Film Independent Spirit Awards, and more.

Screen Actors Guild Awards: An article in the Dec. 21 Calendar section about nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards said that since the awards were created, no performer has won an Oscar without at least being nominated for the SAG honor. In fact, Marcia Gay Harden won the Academy Award as best supporting actress for "Pollock" in 2001 without having received a SAG nomination.

It's been said that a bold red lip can be aging -- a makeup blunder to avoid if you're trying to keep attention away from laugh lines and wrinkles around the mouth. But at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, 68-year-old Helen Mirren has proven that beauty myth wrong, punctuating her black and gold Escada gown with a bright red lip. The look is anything but aging and showcases Mirren's fearless yet age-appropriate style.  The reddish-orange hue on her lips ties together her swept-back white hair and black and gold gown with a timeless and regal elegance.

For his performance as the transgender AIDS patient Rayon in "Dallas Buyers Club," Jared Leto essentially became a different person for 25 days. He dropped more than 30 pounds, adopted a lilting accent and stayed in character for the entirety of the shoot, clacking around in high heels, short skirts and garish makeup. On Sunday, Leto won his first Oscar for the role, which marked the biggest transformation yet in a career marked by reinvention, and it also represented a return to roots for an actor who for several years was more likely to be found on stage with his rock band than in front of a camera.

Lupita Nyong'o, the 30-year-old Mexican-born actress of Kenyan descent who stars in “12 Years a Slave,” has been crowned this award season's “It girl.” In addition to her many acting accolades - including an Oscar nomination for supporting actress - her striking good looks, impeccable style and flawless visage have also launched her, at lightning-quick speed, into the realm of beauty role model. When celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose was first asked to do Nyong'o's makeup, “I just saw that face and I canceled my vacation to work with her,” he says.

Hollywood loves a Cinderella story, and few have ever fit that shoe better than Barkhad Abdi. The actor, who played Somali pirate leader Muse in the Paul Greengrass film "Captain Phillips" to great acclaim, was born in Mogadishu. He recalls an idyllic childhood there, making and flying kites and playing marbles, until the age of 7, when civil war broke out in Somalia. He and his family fled to Yemen, where his father was already working as a teacher. Seven years later, they immigrated to the U.S., joining a vibrant Somali community in Minneapolis.

The big winner in this year's Hollywood awards season: the local economy. Hundreds of millions of dollars are funneled into hotels, restaurants and limousine companies as Los Angeles hosts the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Academy Awards and related events. The money pumped into the Southern California economy comes at a welcome time. The awards season that stretches from January to March falls within a typically slow period for tourism around the country.

Backstage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday night, winners met media with comments and body language that expressed wine-fueled giddiness, exhausted delight, sheer surprise -- or all three at once. After winning the SAG Award for ensemble in a TV comedy series, the cast of "Modern Family" walked backstage, arms weighted down with the heavy statuettes. Though many of the actors looked tired, they said such honors never get old. “Ed was the only one who thought we were going to win today,” said Julie Bowen, referring to costar Ed O'Neill.

Besides the easy waves and sleek ponytails, short hair ruled on the SAG awards red carpet. Perhaps the most striking hairstyles were the pixie cuts, a la Jennifer Lawrence, who seems to have started a trend leading women to take the chop challenge. And a chic, angular bob, as seen on Jane Krakowski, proved to be a modern approach to red carpet hair without any trace of a curling iron or backcombing. Emma Thompson's blond crop was also very cool. She clearly goes for  effortless.
