Birdman took home the big prize of the night at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, winning Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
The cast made their way on stage to accept the award when Naomi Watts tripped on the train of Emma Stone’s gown.
The 46-year-old stumbled over the sheer skirt of Emma’s dress, much to the horror of her castmates.
Watts stated, “Thanks to the Screen Actors Guild. This is a wonderful experience, so collaborative.”
Edward Norton was first to the podium, but introduced Michael Keaton in keeping with ‘age before beauty’.
Keaton said, “Thank you, this is very, very exciting. It’s the ultimate team sport, what we do for a living. To look at all the great actors out there…”
He turned to his co-stars, stating, “These guys are tremendous. I’m proud to be a part of this group.”
Emma, who was nominated in the Supporting Actor category but beaten by Patricia Arquette, said, “This really is absolutely amazing, and it’s so incredible to look out and see so many wonderful actors. We’re so grateful.”
Edward Norton told the audience, “It’s fun to be an actor, but as everyone in this room knows it’s a privilege to be a working actor. And it’s a triple privilege if you get to work on something you love.”
The star had been up for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, but lost out to J.K. Simmons.
