As the second year of the COVID pandemic continues, many televised ceremonies are also heading into their second year of remotely produced telecasts, from this year's awkward AF Golden Globes to WWE's latest WrestleMania pay-per-view. That's not exactly the case for the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, however, which were pushed back from the usual January occurrence. That delay didn't stop The Flight Attendant's Kaley Cuoco from getting dolled up in a positively gorgeous pink dress, though, and the more casual setting meant that Ted Lasso's Jason Sudeikis could continue his streak of wearing relevant sweatshirts during award show acceptance speeches.
The 27th annual SAG Awards aired on both TBS and TNT on Sunday night, honoring the best of the best performances from actors both on the film and the TV side of the industry. To be expected, both Kaley Cuoco and Jason Sudeikis were nominated for their winning turns in HBO Max's twisty thriller The Flight Attendant and Apple TV+'s feel-good comedy Ted Lasso, and the two former network TV stars had contrasting approaches on how to dress up for the occasion. (Also to be expected.) Check out Cuoco's awesome pink dress in the Instagram post below.
Kaley Cuoco could likely make that dress look just as glamorous even while standing in a dumpster full of old fruit, so it's no shock that she looks so awesome while standing in such a picturesque, pool-centric setting. It would not have been a good time for a big burst of wind to have knocked her into the water, if only because no one was recording a video at the moment.
Unfortunately, Kaley Cuoco did not come out as the victor during the SAG Awards. In the category for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, she was nominated against Dead to Me's Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, as well as Schitt's Creek stars Catherine O'Hara and Annie Murphy. O'Hara furthered her well-earned win streak for the sixth and final season of Schitt's Creek, which will probably continue with this year's Primetime Emmys. But while facing defeat is likely disappointing to Cuoco, she definitely wasn't showing it on social media. Check out her post-awards video, which actually paid winking tribute to O'Hara and Schitt's Creek.
Gotta love such positive-minded and well-dressed sportsmanship, which isn't always present when there's alcohol involved. But Kaley Cuoco is just that awesome, I guess.
Meanwhile, Jason Sudeikis turned up to celebrate his Screen Actors Guild Award nomination by wearing another sweatshirt emblazoned with a message of empowerment, although this one came without a hood attached.
After rocking out a hoodie promoting his sister's New York City dance studio for the Golden Globes, Jason Sudeikis then wore another hoodie to the Critic's Choice Awards at the end of February. To be sure, the actor might not be getting this much attention for his fashion choices if he wasn't busy winning all the Best Comedy Actor awards for his understated and acclaimed work on Ted Lasso, reprising the role he originated in a series of NBC Sports promos.
Both The Flight Attendant and Ted Lasso are already set to return for second seasons on HBO Max and Apple TV+, respectively, so there's a very good chance audiences will be watching Kaley Cuoco and Jason Sudeikis being nominated for their work during the 2022 TV awards circuit. In the meantime, stream both series' first seasons now to see what all the hubbub is about.
