The Screen Actor's Guild handed out their annual awards last night. In an evening full of long-winded monologues, odd silences, and some genuinely touching speeches, there were a few moments that stood out.

Presenter Terry O'Quinn, who plays Locke on Lost, went on a half serious rant about his "backstabbing schmoozer" costars; winner S. Epatha Merkerson thanked her divorce lawyers; and presenters Peter Graves and Barbara Bain, from the 1960s classic Mission: Impossible, had to read off of a script when, upon accepting the mission, their teleprompter self-destructed. That's entertainment!

Winners:

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series: Desperate Housewives.

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series: Lost.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series: Sean Hayes for Will & Grace.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series: Felicity Huffman for Desperate Housewives.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series: Kiefer Sutherland for 24.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series: Sandra Oh for Grey's Anatomy.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries: Paul Newman for Empire Falls.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries: S. Epatha Merkerson for Lackawanna Blues.

All in all, it was a grand night of celebrating one of the most important parts of any movie or TV show, the actor. Do you agree with SAG's choices? Remember, they're professionals.
