Award show season plays an important role in the New Year, marking the conclusion of the previous year’s entertainment industry.

This year’s Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards praised numerous actors, musicians, directors and writers for their work in films and television shows we all enjoyed in 2013.
Kicking off this year’s season, comedic icons Tina Fey and Amy Poehler entertained the crowd at the 71st Annual Golden Globes as hosts for the second year in a row early this January.

While cracking jokes and poking fun at those in attendance, including the nominees, the pair succeeded in making the Hollywood A-listers feel welcome along with prepared for the evening ahead.

Fey and Poehler made their second round at hosting a memorable ceremony for everyone involved.
What made the night even more memorable for these stars were the Golden Globes many of them received for their success in the previous year.

A big winner of the night was the film “American Hustle” for Best Motion Picture: Comedy or Musical along with Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence taking home globes for their roles in the film.

The television series “Breaking Bad” also had a successful evening with Best TV Series: Drama and Bryan Cranston for Best Actor in a TV Series: Drama for the show.

Alfonso Cuaron took the globe for Best Director of a Motion Picture for the film “Gravity.” All of the winners received their globes with humbling grace and deserving fulfillment.

The 20th Annual SAG Awards honored these stars while initiating the winding down of award show season a few weeks later in January. The SAG award remains one of the most prized honors for these stars.

Actors and actresses are honored specifically for their performances both individually and as a part of ensembles in film and television.

A lifetime achievement award was presented at the end of the night as well to 82-year-old “West Side Story” actress Rita Moreno who truly left her mark in the entertainment industry.

The 20th Annual SAG Awards proved to be an unforgettable evening for these performers.

Many winners were only continuing their success in taking over this year in film and television with their performances.

The cast of “American Hustle” took the most sought after honor with Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. The cast of “Breaking Bad” also finished off its last round of award shows with Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Along with the continuation of success, some performers experienced their first honor of a SAG Award. Lupita Nyong’o for “12 Years a Slave” and Jared Leto for “Dallas Buyers Club” were honored to be recognized by their fellow actors and accepted their awards with great appreciation.

The Golden Globes and SAG Awards, while not being an Academy Award, continue to remain two of the most prestigious honors actors, directors and writers receive throughout their careers.

All of these individuals work year round to give the public high quality entertainment and to help themselves grow and improve in their craft.

We can only hope to see even more achievement in this upcoming year for film and television. A full list of winners can be seen below.
