Awards season churns on… and last night’s big event was the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. A favorite of most actors (simply for the fact that the awards are voted on by their peers) the event was laid back, and full of laughs. The big winners of the night were the cast of The Help. Octavia Spencer took home the trophy for best supporting actress, while her cast mate Viola Davis took home the lead actress. The collective cast of The Help won the top prize of the night, best ensemble cast, and upon accepting the award, Viola Davis gave an inspiring speech:

Now all roads lead to the Academy Awards. I have a feeling that Octavia Spencer and Christopher Plummer will sweep this award season, however, I can not wait to see who takes home the award for Best Actress… as I think it will be a showdown between Meryl Streep and Viola Davis. Other big winners of the night included the cast of Modern Family, and The Artist‘s leading man Jean Dujardin. Here’s a look at the major motion picture winners:
