Hard to believe it's already been a year since we last went to the Screen Actors Guild Awards and while it's a shame that we won't be there this year, we look forward to going back next year. [check out our 2009 and 2010 coverage]. Was it only last year that Sandra Bullock pulled then-husband Jesse James onto the stage in the press room to urge us all to applaud for this "handsome" man who "has been so supportive" of her and her efforts? I guess we'll be missing timeless moments like that this year. We felt awful for her but, then again, look at that frickin' guy, it's like she was asking for trouble.We made our TV picks below with some trepidation after our poor performance on the Golden Globes. We actually did a bit of research this time and talked to some SAG members about how they've been getting marketed to for the past couple months: it's staggering how much material gets sent to them on a daily basis, particularly from the film production companies which are now leveraging their wins at the Golden Globes, which is again troubling because both the process and the organization is both incredibly flawed and open to fraud. Hopefully the TV awards will be associated a bit more with reality this time around. We'll be watching the live broadcast at 5pm Pacific on TNT/TBS, follow along with us on Twitter.
