While Jennifer Aniston was snubbed by the Oscars, all eyes were on her as she walked down the red carpet at the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards on Sunday night. Nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor, Aniston made a huge entrance with soon-to-be-husband Justin Theroux by her side.
The 45-year-old actress wore a vintage Galliano long gown that’s made from embroidered gold material. In an interview with People Magazine, Jen revealed how she “just kind of dropped dead for it.” Her longtime stylist Chris McMillian described the stunning gown as golden like Jennifer. “It was sexy… She looks California, she looks gorgeous, she looks pretty,” McMillian added. Aniston got cheers from the crowd for her revealing plunging dress that’s accentuated by a black border at the bottom. The former Friends star also wore a body chain, the same one that she wore at the Critics’ Choice Award.
When it was time for the interview with E!, Aniston refused to show her nails for the ManiCam. She shot down host Maria Menounos’ invitation with a polite, “No, thank you,” and played cool about it. Aniston laughed at the invitation and made a whiplash motion as she laughed along. Jennifer Aniston wasn’t the only one who refused to do the ManiCam, fellow nominees Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon rejected Menounos during the interview.
In the end, it was Moore who went home with the SAG trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor for her role in Still Alice. For Aniston, it was enough that her talent was recognized. Critics praised her transformative role in Cake where she played Claire, a woman who’s being plagued by her inner demons. Aniston prepared for the role by stopping her workout routine, which caused her anxiety and sleeplessness. While the SAG awards was her last chance to bring home a trophy, Aniston seemed relaxed and calm even after the lost.
