CELEBRITY: Queen Elizabeth II Celebrates Diamond Jubilee

Monday, known as Accession Day in the Commonwealth, was the quiet beginning of five months of events for Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family as she celebrates 60 years on the throne.

Traditionally, Accession Day is not celebrated in the United Kingdom, as it marks the passing of the previous monarch. Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne after the death of her father, King George VI, on February 6, 1952.

The highlight of her Diamond Jubilee celebration will be a long holiday weekend in the U.K. in early June, when the Queen and the royal family will lead a flotilla of 1,000 boats on the River Thames. Sir Paul McCartney will headline a concert performed in front of Buckingham Palace the same weekend.

The Help Cast in the Press Room at the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild awards were held Sunday in Los Angeles, California at the Shrine Auditorium.

The SAG awards are a recognition for excellence in film and television. Members of the Screen Actors Guild are nominated for the awards by a randomly selected group of their peers and colleagues who are also professional actors and members of the Guild. The Screen Actors Guild is an American Labour Union representing upwards of 200,000 film and television actors from around the world.

The awards have been held annually since 1995 and are a popular television event. They are considered a leading indicator of the Academy Awards, which will be held in just a few weeks (on February 26th).

Highlights of Sunday’s event included several wins for the movie The Help including “Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture”, the 2nd SAG win for Modern Family as “Best Comedy by an Ensemble” in Television, Alec Baldwin’s win as “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series” for 30 Rock and Betty White’s win as “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series” for Hot In Cleveland.
