The Screen Actors Guild Awards were last night, and for many stars this is one of the more important shows of the season, as votes are cast by their fellow actors and specifically highlight their performances.

As anticipated, the big winner of the night was The King’s Speech, which earned enviornmentalist Colin Firth an award for best-actor, and another honor for overall cast. The wins bode well for the upcoming Oscar’s on Feb. 27th, where the film leads with an astounding 12 nominations.

“Until today, I would say probably, if ever I felt that I had a trophy which has told me that something’s really happening for me, it was my SAG card,” said Firth after the win. “Growing up in England, it’s not something you expect to see in your wallet, really,” the 50-year-old continued. “And so it has this glow, and I used to flash it around, hoping it would get me female attention, entry into nightclubs and top-level government departments. It didn’t.”

Our favorite vegan, Natalie Portman, won the best-actress award for her role in Black Swan, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo, The Fighter co-stars, both scored supporting-actor awards.

For the TV side, animal activist Betty White landed an award for best TV comedy actress for her role in Hot in Cleveland, and the always dashing and animal friendly Alec Baldwin won his 5th SAG award for best actor in a comedy series. While Modern Family won for overall cast in a TV comedy.

On the drama end of the TV spectrum, Steve Buscemi walked away with an award for his role on Boardwalk Empire, and the show also won for overall TV drama cast performance. While Julianna Margulies got a best actor statue for The Good Wife.

Check here for a full list of nominees and winners of the night.

    I fail to see, besides Portman being a vegan(?), how this article explains how the winners are eco-friendly and green. What did I miss here?

    Eco-razzi did not blare a giant horn about this, but they are “broadening their horizons to include not just green stories”. That’s what they told me when I asked via email.

    There was no official, separate announcement like they did with the comment abuse/trolling policy, for instance. Don’t hold your breath for one, most of us noticed this –and posted about it incredulously– a few months ago.

      Actually the ones mentioned in THIS article are pretty green and are highlighted as such. Is the linked full list of nominees and winners green? Well no I don’t think so but that’s not what they meant I think…

    I think Christian Bale is a vegetarian? So is Alec Baldwin. Natalie Portman is a vegan.
