The red carpet and swanky evening wear added a dash of Hollywood drama to solidarity as members of SAG-AFTRA came together last night to hand out top prizes for performances at the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center.

The SAG Awards originated awards for the outstanding performances by a motion picture cast and by television drama and comedy ensembles, recognizing the value of collective work. The cast of "Argo" received the top recognition for their portrayal of the 1980 joint CIA-Canadian secret operation to extract six fugitive American diplomatic personnel out of Iran during the hostage crisis. TV drama and comedy ensemble performance awards went to “Downton Abbey” and “Modern Family.” The honors for outstanding action performances by a stunt ensemble in film and television were awarded to “Skyfall” and “Game of Thrones.” Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin received best actors in a comedy series awards for "30 Rock."

More than 100,000 active members of SAG-AFTRA nationwide were eligible to vote for the recipients.

SAG-AFTRA Co-Presidents Ken Howard and Roberta Reardon introduced a film salute to the newly merged SAG-AFTRA, highlighting the history of both legacy unions and the exciting new partnership

Dick Van Dyke received the Lifetime Achievement award.
