It was a particularly special night for Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, who took home Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards for their roles in The Help -- beating out the likes of Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, and Melissa McCarthy. Other winners included Jean Dujardin for Best Actor in The Artist and Christopher Plummer for Best Supporting Actor in Beginners. Additionally, Mary Tyler Moore received the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented by her TV husband, Dick Van Dyke. Overall, it was a big night to celebrate. Congratulations to all the winners! - SAG

Michelle Williams certainly seems to be raking in the award nominations this year, but it looks like the star may be taking a break from acting sometime in the near future in order to spend more time with her daughter, Matilda. On the red carpet at Sunday night's SAG Awards, the actress told E! (via Zap2it), "I just want to go back to being a mom for a while," also adding that she has no films lined up at the moment. And while we'll sure miss seeing her on the big screen, it's nice to see a mother making her child her first priority. - Zap2it

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are well aware of the constant rumors and scrutiny that surround their relationship, and they go to extreme lengths to make sure their children don't hear any part of it. In fact, Pitt told Germany's Bild magazine that, "On all the kids' computers we had our names blocked. They can't Google their mom and dad. I don't want to make myself dependent on what other people think." Probably a wise move... - People
