At the SAG Awards, “The Help was the big winner, taking home three awards for motion picture — cast of a motion picture, female actor in a leading role (Viola Davis) and female actor in a supporting role (Octavia Spencer). “I had to find my voice as a woman of color, as an artist, and I never thought I would be put in a position like that,” said Davis, standing in front of the 11-person cast representing the movie.”–reports the HR.
Hollywood Celebrity Wrap News Today looks like so:

“When alcohol was outlawed, outlaws became kings”–TV show premise by writer Terence Winter. & director Martin Scorsese.
In coming to grips with Boardwalk Empire‘s [the HBO TV series also known as Подпольная империя] ‘upset win’ over American TV staple Mad Men, in the SAG Awards best TV ensemble win last night (Sunday), The Hollywood Reporter writes that they should have seen this coming.
Hindsight is always that gift, that leaves you scrambling if you got something a little off point to realign and straighten your lopsided hat.
Writes The Reporter in typical quirky awards style –”In the Martin Scorsese-directed kickoff episode of Boardwalk Empire, the nude flapper floozy Lucy (Paz de la Huerta) flops her boobs at the camera, bouncing atop Atlantic City gangster Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi), and bellowing nasally, “GIDDYAP, COWBOY!” “Stop with the ‘cowboy’ sh[*]t!” snaps Nucky.”
Contact music reports: Steve Buscemi, who ‘plays corrupt politician Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson in the crime drama, beat Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Hugh Laurie (House) to win the SAG’s first trophy. Taking the stage to accept his win, Buscemi paid tribute to his fellow nominees, and Boardwalk’s cast and crew, saying: “Im very nervous. I want to tip my hat to Bryan Cranston, Michael C. Hall, Jon Hamm and Hugh Laurie, it’s an honour to be nominated with you. I want to thank the amazing crew on Boardwalk, they’ve been a second family to us.”‘
In addition, THR, notes ‘David Thomson called his pre-Boardwalk persona a “babyfaced thug, sleazeball, scumbag,” but now he’s the big thug, his baby face gone gaunt, and he makes the top-dog role his own.’
Gosh – gangsta noir dramas of the USA, bootleg political climates are the backdrop of exciting cable Television drama – a genre that is always edgier than mainstream TV. Film noir narratives are a hotly sought after genre, perhaps denoting entertainment grit with characters that are slightly more layered in their writing and creation, than Glee for example. Lol!
