SAG Awards Winners React
See what Melissa Leo, Christian Bale and the "King's Speech" and "Modern Family" casts had to say backstage.
The stars of The King's Speech took home the top prize of the night, the best ensemble cast award. Backstage, Helena Bonham Carter had her second award show shoe mishap of the season, which she took in stride. As the actress took to the podium with Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, she removed her impressive high heels to rest her feet. But when called to the microphone for a question, the actress found the microphone towered above her. "Oh Jesus, I should have put my shoes on," she said before standing on tip-toe repeatedly to gain height, mocking a ballerina. "I feel like I'm in Black Swan," she cracked. Firth reminded the crowd of journalists of Bonham Carter's footwear controversy from the Golden Globes, where the actress wore mismatched shoes to the fashion-conscious ceremony. "This is a woman who wears different color shoes," Firth joked. "You should watch your shoes and keep them on your feet." Bonham Carter went on to praise her ensemble cast members. "The great thing about an ensemble award is we're all dependent on each other's talent," she said looking at her co-stars. "For me, it's the perfect award for us to receive."
