Alexander Skarsgard attended the SAGs with his BFF Jack McBrayer…??

24th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards

Alexander Skarsgard won another award for playing an abusive husband in Big Little Lies. It was the SAG Award this time, which means he won the “triple crown” for television actors – the Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG, all for the same role. He deserves it, I think – he played Perry really well, and he obviously adores Nicole Kidman and the other women, and he loved being part of this miniseries. His hair is also growing back in, after he shaved it back for a movie. So he looks good.

I have no idea if Alex is still with Alexa Chung – I think they’ve had a few breakup and makeup cycles, and I don’t remember seeing photos of them together in a while, so maybe they’ve broken up for good. Alex seemed to attend the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards solo, but he decided to bring a date to the SAG Awards: Jack McBrayer, best known as Kenneth from 30 Rock. McBrayer is a well-liked comic and comedic actor, and I have absolutely no idea how Jack and Alex met. But apparently they are “BFFs.” Jack was seated next to Alex for all of the SAGs, and Jack was thrilled when Alex won.

Alex’s speech was funny too – keep an eye out for Human Grumpy Cat Robert DeNiro.

    “I have no idea if Alex is still with Alexa Chung” – They were together in Mauritius for New Year’s. They probably get together when they have free time, whatever works.

    He’s clearly in love with Nicole though.

    • Annabelle Bronstein says:

      Yes he totally is! I think the feeling is mutual.

      • lightpurple says:

        There seems to be a great deal of love within that cast. He and Nicole clearly do adore one another.

      • Annabelle Bronstein says:

        @lightpurple yes it’s a total love fest! It could be platonic, but Nicole and Alex have crazy chemistry.

    • Whatabout says:

      Were they though? I don’t think theyre still together.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        Yeah, were they? I haven’t seen pics of them together in ages and they did use to attend events together, even if they never walked the red carpet together. They might have taken this thing waaay undercover, who knows. But I doubt it.

      • Onerous says:

        Yeah – they were. There were loads of photos on IG of him there with her and her friends.

      • sara says:

        By “loads” you mean like 3 or 4, with him in the background.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        Onerous – I will never forgive you for making me look it up!!! I forget how horrid fan forums are! I need a shower now.

    • Whatabout says:

      Ahh I think you maybe confusing him with one of there friends. I did a double take on him too but it wasn’t him.

    • Ozogirl says:

      I don’t think he’s in love with Nicole. He just acts like that with close friends. I remember he was super tight and lovey dovey with the actress who played Pam on True Blood and she was happily married.

  2. VecchiaSignora says:

    Love Alex! So happy he won all those awards!

  3. SydneyGirl says:

    So glad he got it. Four for Four – a clean sweep.

  4. Maria F. says:

    he was very good in that part. First very likeable and then a subtle turn into menacing….

    I love that they are good friends. They seem such an odd couple, but I suppose i think of Jack as being the same as his goofy character in 30 Rock.

    • minx says:

      He scared the crap out of me in that role. Fortunately I’ve never been a victim of domestic violence, and I got still got a sinking feeling of dread from his performance.

  5. DiligentDiva says:

    The last article about them says they broke up, but someone said they were together for new years. I guess they have an off again on again relationship. Also wasn’t this the guy who ghosted his girlfriend for months while filming? I can’t imagine a relationship with this guy is very stable.

  6. vanna says:

    They did those clips for funny and die together – something with the arctic. They were dunny together

  7. Snazzy says:

    I LOVE the fact that these two are best friends

  8. Liberty says:

    Don’t know if Alex and Alexa are back on, but I like her little video short for the AG brand, called Lost Angeles, which depicts her one night stand with a Spider Man impersonator.

  9. Slowsnow says:

    I am the Grumpy Cat: I don’t understand this win. He had such a small role. He went from being nice and sweet to aggressive, no nuance whatsoever, which I blame on the poor writing of BLL.

    • sara says:

      If you thought the writing was poor and there was no nuance we must have been watching different shows.

      • Slowsnow says:

        Each time I say this here I get a comment like yours – believe me you’re not alone!
        Bc of that. I rewatched part of the show that I had bought bc of what I had read here! And yes, I stand by my judgement. Sorry if you liked it, I found it superficial. Perhaps Reese’s character was the most complex which it saying a lot. Don’t get me started on Laura Dern’s. And the dudes…
        Just one tidbit: what school teacher gathers everyone at the entrance of the school (as if there was only one class) deals with a serious thing such as a kid physically hurting another kid in front of everyone, asking the victim to POINT at her assailant?
        However, there were little things I liked such as Laura Dern’s daughter’s name, for instance. It cracked me up. But they weren’t enough to compensate for the lack of depth IMO. But that’s me.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I have never seen the show so I don’t know how the scene fully plays out but yes, there are school teachers that will and have done that.

      • Slowsnow says:

        @M.A.F this is supposedly a really good school attended by wealthy people’s kids.
        Anyway, I’m surprised to hear this. I’m in the UK and before I lived in France, and I have 4 kids. All the kindergartens, primary schools and high schools that I had and have my kids in, never ever would such a serious matter been dealt with in a such a way. In one of the schools my kids were enrolled in (all state schools) we weren’t even allowed to know the name of the kids who had done something wrong. And another one, they frowned upon the parents solving it between them and went through a very specific step by step process with the kids.

      • KBB says:

        It’s not like the school administration had a meeting and decided to handle it that way. It was a very young teacher being confronted by a very pushy parent demanding action. The kids didn’t know each other’s names so she said “can you point to who did this to you?” And it very quickly became obvious to her that it was a mistake and a bad way to handle it. She shut down the conversation, but the damage was already done.

      • MoCO says:

        “Just one tidbit: what school teacher gathers everyone at the entrance of the school (as if there was only one class) deals with a serious thing such as a kid physically hurting another kid in front of everyone, asking the victim to POINT at her assailant?”
        In the book, Amabella gets hurt on the way out the door at the end of class so the teacher only notices her crying as the kids are going to their parents and so deals with it then. It’s also orientation day so they kids don’t know each others’ names yet so she has to point instead. It wasn’t as clear in the show.

    • Luca76 says:

      I found the writing grating but it redeemed itself with the last 2 episodes. My favorite thing about the show was NK’s wardrobe.

      • Lorelai says:

        I also loved Nicole’s wardrobe! I coveted her pink dress but unfortunately it was Gucci and about five figures out of my price range.

    • minx says:

      I didn’t think his role was small at all, it was a pretty meaty supporting role. His death kicks off the whole story. He’s the link to Shailene’s character, we see lots of his interactions with NK. The final part of the series is nerve wracking with him stalking NK at the party and then looming over the women at the end. I think he more than fulfills the definition of a solid supporting role.

    • SK says:

      I agree and overall found the screen adaptation a poor effort of the wonderful, nuanced and gripping book Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty – book highly superior in every way

      Nicole’s portrayal of Celeste was probably the worst for me

      • sara says:

        lol yikes, this is a terrible take.

        There’s having opinions, and then there’s being flat out wrong.

      • slowsnow says:

        @sara, which is your opinion, or do you mean that you are flat out wrong?

        I am perplexed at how fanatic some people become about certain works of fiction.

        I’d love to see you do what I do. I work with contemporary art. The number of times people tell me my life’s passion is pretentious sh*t is immense.

        If I attacked people like you, I’d be hospitalized now for depression. Chill. Not even masterpeices are unquestioned.

        Art is up for debate and thankfully so. Don’t shut people down just because they have a different approach to something you’re emtionally connected to.

    • Keaton says:

      I finally watched it and I agree with you @slowsnow. I think Big LIttle LIes was well crafted entertainment but insanely overrated critically and in terms of reward wins. Alex was a solid villain but definitely not worthy of all these rewards either. He played his one note very very well but it’s not like I ever felt any sympathy for Perry. He was a terrifying villain and that’s it. I think the reason Laura Dern has gotten so much reward show love is because she was playing against type. I think in a few years people will look back and wonder what the fuss was.

  10. Lucy2 says:

    So happy he won! I love that he and Jack are such good friends, I think they have been for many years.
    I thought he and Alexa broke up for good a while ago?

    • Onerous says:

      They went so far as to announce their breakup, but he was with her in Mauritius over New Year…

  11. grabbyhands says:

    I hope he never becomes problematic, because he is one of the few actors that I always enjoy seeing (and not just because I want to hit it like the fist of an angry god). He seems to be genuinely enjoying his success while not being overshadowed by it at the same time. He has been in some real box office bombs and seems unfazed by it. He doesn’t seem thirsty to me, and that is refreshing.

    Also, his friendships are always hilarious. He seems like he would be a lot of fun to hang out with and have fun and goof off.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Isn’t it terrible that with every male celebrity these days we go “Oh dude better not have committed a crime.” ??? I had a moment of utter disappointment (silly as it is) when he did that Terry Richardson shoot a few months back. Ugh. Don’t, Alex. Just don’t.

  12. Lala says:

    I’m so HAPPY for Alexander, highlighting a talent that MUST BE BASED ON GENETICS! He was the BEST thing on “True Blood”…and his haunting and menacing turn as an abusive husband on BLLs…was so triggering and scary…because..HE NAILED IT…every manipulative, brutal and seductive layer that is so often involved in those situations…he NAILED it …he and Nic were a perfect emotional horror story yin/yang…During many of their scenes…it took me back to my childhood, where I saw my Aunt and Uncle doing the same spine-chilling relationship dances…and unfortunately/fortunately, my Aunt’s ending was just like Nic’s/Alex’s characters ending….SIGH…

  13. Wo says:

    Kenneth Parcell really is immortal. He hasn’t aged at all.

    • Erinn says:

      It’s all the hill-people milk.

      Also this brought me into a wormhole of Kenneth quotes. “Mr Jordan, it’s Kenneth Parcell from work. And friendship”. “I don’t drink hot liquids of any kind – that’s the devils temperature” “global warming – that’s just scientist talk. The same people who said my grandfather was a monkey. If that’s true – why was he killed by a monkey?”

      • KBB says:

        Lol Kenneth Parcell is one of my favorite characters of all time. “I ATE MY FATHER-PIG!”

        30 Rock never gets old.

      • lucy2 says:

        “Your eyes look like my uncle’s after he drank from the air conditioner” has always been one of my favorites too.
        I loved Kenneth and he had some of the best lines. As did the other characters about him:
        “in 5 years we’ll all either be working for him or dead by his hand.”

  14. Lucy says:

    All the elder Skarsgard bros are tight with Jack, I think. But honestly, I feel like Alex gets along with everyone. He and Margot Robbie have become really good friends after Tarzan, which I really like.

  15. cr says:

    He attended the Globes with another one of his BFFs, Keith Ewell, and the Critics’ Choice Awards with Bjorne Larsson (and Alicia Vikander attended with Bjorne’s wife Lisa).
    I’m glad he won, he was very very good as Perry.

  16. minx says:

    I can’t see Jack McBrayer and not smile.

  17. Aerohead21 says:

    Who doesn’t love Fix it Felix!! I’d love to be Jack’s BFF too :)

  18. Unmade_bed says:

    He is so sexy.

  19. starkiller says:

    Alexa really has a thing for guys named Alex, huh.

    I too hope he continues growing his hair back—the buzz cut somehow really emphasises his bulbous nose.

  20. ty says:

    mmm alex likes men.get oveerrrr it.

    • Aerohead21 says:

      Assuming you are correct, what’s there to get over? By getting over it you’re implying there is something wrong with it.

      Maybe the people who can’t stop saying he’s bi/gay need to get over it. His sexuality doesn’t effect his ability to act or his ability to look good in a suit ;)

  21. Ozogirl says:

    I’m so happy for him! I hope his career continues to skyrocket! I love him and I love that he’s best friends with Jack!

  22. serena says:

    Ironic how in this era of feminism movements, TimeUp’s and all, he won awards for playing an abusive husband.

    • sara says:

      How is that ironic? He’s an actor playing a character. Do you think it’s ironic that Sam Rockwell won for playing a racist cop when racist cops have always been a problem?

  23. Eva says:

    I’m here for this friendship.
