screen actors guild awards
"Thank you to my in-laws," she said to laughter. "Thank you for producing the most spectacular human being who I get to call my husband. Life is just better with you in it."
Margulies revealed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) the immediate aftermath of her words. Her husband, who isn't in the entertainment business, was ribbed by various celebrities after she made her way back to the table.
'The Fighter' won two of its four nominations, as Melissa Leo and Christian Bale received statuettes. Dickie Eklund, the man whom Bale played in the biopic, surprised him onstage. "How do you like me now?" Eklund joked.
In television, notable wins included Betty White for female actor in a comedy series ('Hot in Cleveland'), and Alec Baldwin's fifth consecutive SAG victory for '30 Rock.'
It was a huge coup for TV Land, which found a star vehicle for the 89-year old actress when she joined the cast of 'Hot in Cleveland.'
Just as she's done throughout her career, she quickly turned her role of Elka Ostrovsky into one of television's most outrageous, surprising and memorable characters.
Our friends at Moviefone will give you the results from the movie side of the ledger. On the TV side, there weren't many surprises. HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' won two awards: Steve Buscemi for Best Male Actor in a Drama, and the cast for Outstanding Drama Cast. 'Modern Family' won for Outstanding Comedy Cast, while Alec Baldwin of '30 Rock' for Best Male Actor in a Comedy and Julianna Margulies of 'The Good Wife' won for Best Female Actor in a Drama.
The winner for Best Female Actor in a Comedy was a mild surprise, as Betty White took home the statuette for her performance in 'Hot in Cleveland.' It's a surprise given the competition she was up against (Tina Fey, Jane Lynch, Edie Falco and Sofia Vergara), but given the roll White has been on over the last year, it makes sense that the acting community would take the opportunity to honor her again.
The complete list of television winners can be found after the jump.
Sandra Bullock, who picked up a leading actor trophy for her performance in 'The Blind Side,' presented the award to White and took an affectionate dig at the 88-year-old actress. "I know that a lot of people really find Betty White inspiring," Bullock said. "Me, I find Betty White annoying. I'm sorry. It's true."

'Mad Men' and 'Glee' took home top honors in the ensemble categories, while Globe winners Michael C. Hall, Julianna Margulies, Kevin Bacon, Alec Baldwin and Drew Barrymore each took home prizes of their own.

Dollhouse - Friday January 22, 8 pm, Global/Fox
EDITOR'S NOTE: The 'Dollhouse' finale has been postponed to January 29th. The Haiti fundraising telethon will air in its place.
While most TV viewers are excited about the new shows starting up, Joss Whedon fans are taking it on the chin again as 'Dollhouse' comes to a close. But there are some signs the show may live on, as 'Buffy' and 'Angel' did before it, in the world of comic books. At the very least, fans can tease themselves with trips to a couple of viral websites where Echo's world lives on. Check out the site for the Rossum Corporation, a rebel Ditch the Tech site, the issues-driven Not A Doll site and of course, get all the updates at Joss-central - Whedonesque.com.
Guild members voted 78% in favor of the new agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), despite calls by hard-line union members who urged actors to vote "no" and force continued negotiations.
It's clear that two huge factors in the SAG approval were general labor strife fatigue and the struggling economy.
Actors really take themselves seriously, don't they? They don't even like to call a female performer an actress. Only actors allowed.
The SAG Awards are always a bit of a downer, since we already saw all these people at the Golden Globes. And pretty much the same people won again. The only pleasant surprises were The Office winning for Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series and Little Miss Sunshine taking the movie cast award. Here are the winners:
Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries
Helen Mirren, Elizabeth I
Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries
Jeremy Irons, Elizabeth I
Harry Potter is a dirty, dirty boy. Daniel Radcliffe guest stars on 'Extras,' where he hopes to shed his innocent image by making a very indecent proposal to Maggie. Dumbledore would be aghast. Meanwhile, Andy (Ricky Gervais) is a laughingstock after he makes a faux pas at a restaurant.
