The Screen Actors’ Guild Awards sometimes provides an indication of what Hollywood is thinking when it comes to the Oscars, though this year, the number of black actors who were awarded at the SAGs suggests that that might not be the case. Awarded on Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Lucire spotted Laverne Cox, Viola Davis, Kristen Wiig, Emilia Clarke, Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes, Kate Winslet, Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic, Alfie Allen, Amanda Peet, David Benioff, January Jones, Samira Wiley, writer Lauren Morelli, Hannah Bagshawe, Joanne Froggatt, Annie Parisse and Paul Sparks, Christina Ricci, Ariel Winter, Sola Bamis, Sarah Paulson and Jon Hamm, Sarah Hyland, Kathryn Hahn, Diane Lane, Kiernan Shipka, Julianne Moore, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Priyanka Chopra, Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara, Julianna Margulies, Rachel McAdams, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rooney Mara, Naomi Watts, Tina Fey, Dame Helen Mirren, and Anna Faris on the red carpet; Eva Longoria, Julius Tennon, and Amy Poehler additionally at the cocktail reception; Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Uzo Aduba, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Tremblay, and Raquel Cassidy backstage; and, during the show, Demi Moore, Pedro Pascal, Eddie Redmayne, Taye Diggs, Jeremy Renner, Laura Prepon, Susan Sarandon, Ray Liotta and Karsen Liotta, Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen, and Saoirse Ronan.
   Top prizes on the night went to Spotlight, for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, with Billy Crudup, Brian d‚ÄôArcy James, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery, Michael Keaton and Liev Schreiber collecting the award; Brie Larson won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her role in Room; and Leonardo DiCaprio won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for The Revenant.
   Television drama prizes went to Downton Abbey for best series, Viola Davis for How to Get Away With Murder, and Kevin Spacey for House of Cards. For comedy, the honours went to Orange Is the New Black for top series, Uzo Aduba for Orange Is the New Black; and Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent.
   Alicia Vikander won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for The Danish Girl; while Idris Elba won the Male award for Beasts of No Nation. Queen Latifah won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Bessie, while Elba also won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Luther.
   Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture went to Mad Max: Fury Road; the television equivalent went to Game of Thrones.
   The legendary Carol Burnett won the SAG Life Achievement Award, the most prestigious offered by SAG-AFTRA. Burnett has already won numerous Emmy Awards, a special Tony, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and both a Kennedy Center honour and its Mark Twain Prize for humour.
   We caught Viola Davis, Queen Latifah, Kimiko Glenn, Lea DeLaria, Beth Fowler, Leonardo DiCaprio in the trophy room after their wins, and Idris Elba, Carol Burnett, Brie Larson, Kevin Spacey, Alicia Vikander, Julianne Moore, and Jeffrey Tambor in the press room.
   The awards were streamed through TNT’s and TBS’s websites and apps as well as broadcast through their TV channels.

Everyone wants to dress like David Beckham, in spring 2016 H&M campaign

Lucire staff/23.24

David Beckham, in his ongoing collaboration with Hennes & Mauritz, has shot his latest campaign for his spring 2016 Modern Essentials Selected by David Beckham collection in Lisboa, Portugal. It is accompanied by a humorous film promoting the line, directed by Fredrik Bond.
   The previous promo showed Beckham discovering that comedian Kevin Hart dressed exactly like him. Its sequel takes things a step further, where Beckham finds that everyone around him is dressed the same as him, including all the hotel staff, an arguing couple, a grandmother, a baby, and skateborders. The accompany print campaign has been shot by Mario Sorrenti.
   The premise is showing off Beckham’s position as a style leader.
   ‚ÄėI always have the best time shooting H&M campaigns. They really understand my style and my sense of humour. It was great to wear such sharp pieces from the Modern Essentials range while having such a good time,’ said Beckham in a release.
   The collection will drop on February 18 and March 19 at all H&M stores that carry menswear, and online at hm.com.

Derek Zoolander promotes Fiat 500X in advance of Zoolander 2

Lucire staff/3.46



Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander alter ego, returning to cinemas on February 12 in Zoolander 2, 15 years after the original, advertises the Fiat 500X crossover in a TV campaign that broke during the Golden Globes’ telecast yesterday.
   While the first spots were 60 seconds, 30-second spots break today on US television. The campaign will also reach digital and social media.
   The campaign has been directed by Jeff Mann, who executive-produces Zoolander 2. Background music is Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s ‘Relax (Don’t Do It)’, and Zoolander adopts his ‘Blue Steel’ pose when he sets off a traffic camera. The campaign was created in partnership with Trailer Park.
   The Fiat 500X is Fiat Chrysler’s latest entry in the 500 family, which was revived in 2007. Built on the larger Fiat Punto platform, the 500X is, for the North American market, an all-wheel-drive crossover that adopts the retromodern looks of the 500 supermini, which in turn paid tribute to the 1957, rear-engined nuova 500. Other markets receive a front-wheel-drive 500X model.
   ‚ÄėJoining forces with Paramount Pictures and Zoolander No. 2 allows us to align the Fiat 500X with a pop culture moment through one of this year’s most anticipated films,’ said Olivier Fran√ßois, chief marketing officer and Fiat’s global brand head.
   ‚ÄėWe are thrilled for Derek Zoolander fans around the world to finally see the result of our year-long collaboration with the Fiat team on a campaign so perfectly in sync with his character,’ commented LeeAnne Stables, president of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships at Paramount Pictures. ‘These Fiat spots are a hilarious reminder of the fun that audiences will have when the movie releases next month.’
   Last March, Stiller as Zoolander and Owen Wilson, in his Zoolander role as Hansel, walked the Valentino runway during the autumn‚Äďwinter 2015‚Äď16 collections in Paris.
   Zoolander 2 is directed by Stiller, and sees the return of Wilson. Will Ferrell, Pen√©lope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Milla Jovovich, Christine Taylor, Justin Theroux and Kyle Mooney also star. The film is written by Theroux, Stiller, Nick Stoller and John Hamburg. Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld, Scott Rudin and Clayton Townsend produce.

OPI has named Kerry Washington (Django Unchained, Scandal) as its first creative ambassador, which will see the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress co-curate its nail lacquer shades and developing shade names alongside co-founder Suzi Weiss-Fischmann.
   Weiss-Fischmann first approached Washington about the collaboration in spring 2015, and the actress accepted.
   ‚ÄėI am a huge fan of OPI and was ecstatic when Suzi approached me to partner with the brand,’ said Washington in a release. ‘I’m so inspired by Suzi and what she has built with the OPI brand.’
   Said Weiss-Fischmann, ‘One of my favourite shows is Scandal. I noticed that the show was on the tip of everyone’s tongue from the boardroom to the water cooler, and Kerry had unquestionably become a role model for women everywhere. She truly empowers women of all ages‚ÄĒshe is bold, fashionable and loves nail lacquer.’
   Washington also serves as an ambassador for Movado and had previously been one of L’Or√©al Paris’s signature faces.
