SAG Awards: 10 Things the TV Cameras Missed

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's backstage reunion, a Meryl Streep-Robert De Niro picture and more 'Parasite' excitement were some of the night's biggest moments the cameras missed.

The 2020 SAG Awards had plenty of great onscreen moments, like Joaquin Phoenix's shout-out to Heath Ledger and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel cast's pro-Fleabag speech, but there were numerous offscreen moments the cameras missed.

The Hollywood Reporter was there Sunday night to catch and report what happened that the TNT/TBS cameras airing the 26th annual awards show missed.

During her speech, Pitt was photographed watching her on a TV backstage, and later, the two congratulated each other on their successes.

Parasite's cast got a standing ovation before they even won: Parasite was definitely a crowd favorite at the awards Sunday night. This became clear after the entire auditorium gave the cast a standing ovation when they went onstage to present their film, before they even received the night's top prize of best cast.

Military members got the best selfies on the carpet: Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez and Leonardo DiCaprio all stopped to get a selfie with the military crew on the silver carpet before the 26th annual SAG Awards began.

The Parasite cast is fond of Peter Dinklage: Dinklage won for best actor in a drama series, the only award for Game of Thrones' final season. Not only were his fellow castmembers on the HBO show ecstatic, but the Parasite cast also got on their feet for the actor.

Reese Witherspoon couldn't contain her excitement when one of her co-stars won: Laura Dern won best supporting actress for her role in Marriage Story, the only one for Noah Baumbach's story of a grueling bicoastal divorce. Witherspoon and Dern starred alongside each other in HBO's Big Little Lies.

Pitt showed off his true football colors: Pitt is a known Kansas City Chiefs enthusiast, so when fellow Chiefs fans on the silver carpet threw the actor a Chiefs hat, he couldn't help but wear it as he walked along the carpet.

The Parasite cast was ecstatic when they won the top prize: They also received cheers from the entire auditorium.

Roman Griffin Davis outdid himself: The Jojo Rabbit breakthrough actor could not contain his excitement on the silver carpet. He was photographed smiling and taking selfies with another little boy.

Bong Joon Ho was thrilled when his cast won: Bong was recorded going up to his cast backstage, clapping, arms above his head, shouting as he greeted the cast, and they all joined in.
