LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Screen Actors Guild Awards are all about the stars of TV and film honoring their own.
That meant a slew of famous faces everywhere Saturday, from the red carpet to the ballroom to the backstage press area and onsite after-party.
CELEBRITY CRUSH: A crew of walkie-talkie-wearing publicists steered the crush of celebrity traffic on the red carpet outside the Shrine Auditorium.
“Tina Fey,” one woman shouted into her headset moments before the “30 Rock” star stepped onto the carpet. Another publicist wrangled Fey, telling her, “this is the pre-show.” Seconds later, Fey was on camera.
Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin, Christina Applegate, Vera Farmiga and Tony Shalhoub found themselves rubbing shoulders as they waited in front of a maze of TV-interview platforms from “Entertainment Tonight,” ”Access Hollywood,” E!, CNN and People magazine.
Cameramen followed nominee Anna Kendrick before she disappeared into the throng of celebs. A series of strobe flashes also followed Sophia Loren and Meryl Streep, who each arrived wearing shades.
A cluster of publicists used walkie-talkies to coordinate how to get the whole cast of “Glee” in one spot as stars Dianna Agron and Jane Lynch posed for photos on different corners of the carpet.
