Hollywood actresses Drew Barrymore and Sandra Bullock both picked up top prizes at this year's pre-Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.
Drew Barrymore was one of the big winners at this Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles. The Charlie's Angels actress picked up outstanding performance by a female actor in a television movie or miniseries for her role in Grey Gardens.
Sandra Bullock wore a dress made by English designer Alexander McQueen to pick up her award for female actor in a leading role. She won for The Blind Side but denied it made her a favourite to win at the Oscars: "Shhhhh. Shhhhh. Shhhhh."
Mo'Nique was voted best female actor in a supporting role for her part in Precious, in which she plays an abusive mother. Other winners in the film categories included Jeff Bridges for his role in Crazy Heart and the Star Trek prequel.
Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall wore a cap at the awards because of treatment he's receiving for Hodgkin's lymphoma. He won best actor in a drama series for his portrayal of serial killer and Miami blood splatter expert Dexter Morgan.
Other Hollywood A-listers at the ceremony included Penelope Cruz, Alec Baldwin and Kevin Bacon. The awards also include a TV section with US series Mad Men taking the top honour. Glee won the award for best television comedy ensemble.
Bride Wars actress Kate Hudson also put in an appearance at the awards show, another indicator for the Oscars which take place on 7 March. The biggest losers at the Screen Actors Guild Awards were George Clooney and the cast of The Hurt Locker.
Mariah Carey was at the ceremony with husband Nick Cannon to support Precious, the film she appears in with Gabourey Sidibe and rocker Lenny Kravitz. The movie was up for the ensemble cast prize but missed out to Quentin Tarantino's war film.
Another person to miss out on an award was young British actress Carey Mulligan. The 24-year-old was nominated for her role in An Education but lost out to Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side. This year she'll be appearing in the sequel to 1987's Wall Street.
True Blood, starring Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer (mind reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse and vampire Bill Compton), missed out in the drama ensemble category to Mad Men. The second season of the show starts in the UK next month.
Justin Timberlake was at the awards with Kate Hudson to present the outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series to Alec Baldwin from 30 Rock. Another veteran actor, Kevin Bacon, won best actor in a TV movie or miniseries for Taking Chances.
