The Screen Actors Guild Awards 2003 is
over and it is clear with Daniel Day-Lewis' win that everyone is happy
to see this great actor back on the screen. He accepted his award
by honoring his fellow actors and nominees. He also revealed his
secret dream of one day starring in the tradition of motion
pictures. His dream has come true and he has been honored with the
highest awards the industry has to offer. He also talks about his
early beginnings of watching "all-nighter" movies and how his
secret wish was to be a part of the movies. Day-Lewis does well to
give a brief story, because as any public speaker knows, telling stories
is a great tool to keep your audience interested in your speech.
Another interesting note about
Day-Lewis is that he was wearing a deep, purple suit, not like the usual
black and white. This is daring and it pushes the envelope, like
he does in his acting.
Other winners included Renee Zellweger
for best actress in a leading role for her work in Chicago.
This is well deserved. She was all bubbly happy as she accepted
her award. Her excitement was clear because she was not quite on
her right mind when she simply called Pierce
Brosnan, "Mr. Bond." Brosnan announced her win and
because her thoughts were scattered, she could not pin down Brosnan's
Should there be a rare chance that
Zellweger does not win the Oscar, she can have another opportunity in Cinderella
Man, opposite Russell
Crowe. These actors together will be exciting to watch.
While Zellweger is all bubbly
excitement, Catherine Zeta-Jones is all elegance. She is beautiful
in her rich, purple dress, which shows a woman's natural power and
strength of motherhood.
In conclusion, award shows provide an
opportunity for the fans to see their favorite performers outside of
their characters in their films.
