It was the sixth time the power went down during the evening

Past Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis of “There Will Be Blood” and Julie Christie of “Away From Her” won the lead-acting honors, also giving them a boost to win the same trophies at the Oscars.

Day-Lewis dedicated his win to Heath Ledger, found dead in his Manhattan loft last week.

The SAG show itself was generally free of labor talk, with only Christie addressing the matter openly among the winners.

Bardem had kind words for Joel and Ethan Coen, who directed “No Country” and adapted the screenplay from Cormac McCarthy’s novel.

“Thank you, guys, for hiring me, and thank you for taking the hard work of choosing the good takes instead of the ones where I really sucked,” said Bardem, who won for his chilling role as a relentless killer tracking a fortune in missing drug money.

“The Sopranos” swept the television drama category, with lead-acting trophies going to stars Edie Falco and James Gandolfini, and the entire cast winning outstanding performance. The HBO show’s controversial final episode aired in June after ten years.

Ruby Dee won supporting actress for “American Gangster.” She shared fond thoughts of her late husband and frequent acting partner, Ossie Davis, who died in 2005.

2″I have fallen in love with these people and I don’t know how you walk away from that,” said Falco, accepting the award for outstanding female actor in a drama series. “I felt loved and protected and taken care of at all times, nobody is luckier than me, nobody. It is such an honor to be an actor, it was such an honor to be part of this show.”.

“This is our last of ‘The Sopranos,’” said Gandolfini, accepting his award for outstanding male actor 바카라사이트 in a drama series. “Our last official act as ‘The Sopranos’ together.””30 Rock” stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin each won outstanding acting in a comedy series honors. .

The cast of “The Office” won for outstanding ensemble in a comedy series.

“The Bourne Ultimatum” and “24″ won the Screen Actors Guild’s first-ever prizes for best stunt ensemble Sunday as Hollywood held what could be its fanciest party if the writers strike undermine the Academy Awards.

The prizes were announced before the big ceremony saluting actors began.

Normally a small cousin to the Golden Globes and Oscars, the SAG Awards could end up being the biggest celebration of Hollywood’s film-honors season this time.

3The swanky Globes were canceled because of a strike by the Writers Guild of America, which refused to let its members work on the show, and the fate of the Oscars on Feb. 24 is in question because of the same labor quarrel.

Not so for the SAG honors. The actors union has been steadfast in support of striking writers, who in turn gave their blessing to the SAG ceremony.

Instead of the debacle for the Globes, which were curtailed to a star-free news conference after actors and filmmakers made it clear they would not cross writers’ picket lines, the SAG ceremony came off with a full complement of Hollywood A-listers.

4But the event wasn’t without its issues – the power went out backstage 30 minutes into the awards show.

Backstage monitors went out, leaving those behind the scenes unaware of what was happening onstage. That left show personnel to shout out the winners of each category since microphones weren’t working.

It was the sixth time the power went down during the evening.

Meanwhile, the on-air show continued uninterrupted during a stormy evening that saw the red carpet outside the Shine Auditorium tented in plastic.

That makeshift tent came in handy when it rained off and on as the stars made their way inside.

As with the Golden Globes, the Writers Guild has made it clear that its members would not be allowed to work on the Oscars. While stars generally have said they would skip the show rather than cross picket lines, Oscar organizers insist their telecast will take place as scheduled.

Amy Ryan, a SAG and Oscar supporting-actress nominee for “Gone Baby Gone,” said at the Directors Guild awards Saturday that she would not cross a picket line to attend the Oscars.

“I hope it ends but, more, I hope the writers get their due,” Ryan said. “I think that, at the end of the day, is more important than a party. But I really hope it works out because I’d like to go to the party.”

5Many in Hollywood hope a new contract recently negotiated by the Directors Guild of America might help jump-start a deal between producers and writers, who went on strike Nov. 5 over their share of revenue from programming on the Internet and other new media.

Airing live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on TNT and TBS, the SAG ceremony included a life-achievement honor for Charles Durning. A retrospective of the actor’s career was introduced by his on-screen son on F/X’s “Rescue Me,” Denis Leary, and his award was introduced by Burt Reynolds who said, “my father passed away a few years ago and I never had an older brother, but Charlie has been both for me.”

Accepting his award, Durning said, “There’s nothing more gratifying than having an achievement award from one’s peers. … When someone asked the great character actor Sir Ralph Richardson how he did what he did at age 83, he replied, ‘I don’t know, I’m just getting the hang of it.’ And that’s how I feel. I’m just getting the hang of it.”
