2011 SAG Award Winners

By Rachel Rossitto | Monday, January 31, 2011

Did you tune in last night to watch Hollywood’s hottest stars walk the red carpet for the 17th annual SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards? We sure did over here at LiftKits. And boy did it reassure us how short a lot of those actors are! Did you see Jermey Renner and Jesse Eisenburg, sure looked like they could use some LiftKits.

However, just in case you missed the SAG awards here a short recap of the awards. To start, our favorite animals rights activist Betty White accepted the award for best female actor in a comedy series for her performance in Hot in Cleveland. We just love how she’s rocking out with her youthful attitude and successful career!

For TV, Steve Buscemi won best male actor in a drama series for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. The show also won outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series. Modern Family won the same award for comedy.

Alec Baldwin won best actor in a comedy series for his role on 30 Rock and Claire Danes accepted an award for best actress in a TV movie or miniseries for her starring role in Temple Grandin. You Don’t Know Jack‘s Al Pacino won the same award for male actor. Julianna Margulies was awarded best actress in a drama series for The Good Wife.

On to films — showing off her growing baby bump, Natalie Portman took home the award for best actress in a film for her role in the ballet thriller Black Swan. Colin Firth won best male actor in a film and co-star Geoffrey Rush accepted the award for best cast in a motion picture for The King’s Speech.

Best male and female actors in a supporting role went to Christian Bale and Melissa Leo for playing family members to Mark Wahlberg‘s character in The Fighter (highly recommended if you haven’t seen it yet!). Lastly, Morgan Freeman presented Ernest Borgnine with the Life Achievement award.

What’s an event without an after-party? Following the awards show, attendees gathered at the Shrine Exposition Center to honor the “philanthropic causes and good works of the members of the Screen Actors Guild,” benefiting the SAG Foundation.

Add a Few Inches to It

Check out the recent post from TheShowt.com from 01.06.2011.

We have a confession to make: we’ve always lied about our height. As wee little Showties we claimed to be 4’6” so we could ride the Sooperdooperlooper at Hershey Park. In high school we said we were 5’5” so we wouldn’t have to line up last in gym class. Most recently we claimed to be 5’10” so we could get an interview with IMG.

And thanks to Derek White, no one is ever the wiser. The former model is the creator of Lift Kits, shoe inserts that add up to two inches to your stature. The sneaky supports come in hi-top and low-top versions to rise to any occasion whether you are sporting wingtips or riding boots.

Order yours today and add a few inches to your total package.

Get Fit in 2011

Have a News Years Resolution to get fit? Want sexier looking legs? It has been proven that standing on your toes can tone your calf’s and legs. Because of the nature of LiftKits and their design you not only stand on your calfs but with every step your legs are activated to workout your calfs, inner/outer thighs, and even glutes. Wear LiftKits to push your body to work just that much harder; wearing LiftKits all day everyday will allow you easily tone and trim your legs.

For a few extra exercises to tone your calf muscles check out what the Lance Armstrong Foundation has to say:

Seated Calf Raise

The soleus muscle can be isolated by performing the seated calf raise. The seated calf raise is done by sitting with the knees bent at 90 degrees, placing a weight (if necessary) on top of the knees and lifting the heels up as high as possible, pushing through the toes.

Standing Calf Raise

The standing calf raise works both muscles in the calf. This can be done any number of ways, depending on strength. The most basic way is to stand on level ground and slowly lift the heels as high as possible. A progression would be to stand on a stair with the heels over the edge and allow them to lower down, stretching the calf, then rising up as high as possible. Finally, weights can be added to make the exercise more challenging. Any one of these exercises can also be performed on one leg to increase the difficulty.
