This Is Us stars made 3D-printed copies of their SAG Award trophies to distribute to the child cast
Milo Ventimiglia joined his cast at SXSW in reflecting on the massive success of This Is Us. So far, he said, his one concern is that is that the show "gets kicked in the teeth at every awards show we've been to." So when the cast did win a SAG Award for outstanding performance at an ensemble, Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore took their trophies to a 3D printing store to make six replicas for the show's child stars. "It wasn't the real statue but also, from mom and dad, wanted them to know hey, we love you guys and you should have a representation siting on your mantel," said Ventimiglia, with Moore adding, "You're just as much a part of this as everybody else."
- Mandy Moore: "I’m really proud to be part of a show that is so inclusive, during such a divisive time in this country"
- Susan Kelechi Watson: "It’s nice to have these episodes where it’s, not necessarily lighter, but it’s happier. It’s joyful"
- Ventimiglia hopes fans seeing Old Man Jack in his 70s will "maybe soften the blow a little bit"

Aziz Ansari was a no-show, but James Franco did appear at SAG Awards
Ansari, nominated for best actor in a comedy series, lost to William H. Macy at the SAG Awards. Ansari didn’t attend the ceremony that came eight days after he was accused by a date of sexual misconduct. Franco did attend, but skipped the SAG red carpet. Franco’s sister-in-law, Alison Brie, was asked about the accusations, responding: “I obviously support my family and not everything reported has been fully accurate. But of course now is a time for listening and that’s what we’re all trying to do.”

Kristen Bell, the first-ever SAG Awards host, says she's "very comfortable with the teleprompter, and I’m a pretty decent party pumper..."
"...Which I believe are the only two qualifications," Bell says jokingly. “I do hope to keep it very fun and lively,” she adds of Sunday's hosting gig. “It’s going to be a lot of women this year. A lot of women. Out of respect for the changes that are happening in the business and the topics of conversation that are happening currently, we want that to be something that is honoring women, and I don’t want to take anything too seriously. A lot of topics, people have asked me if I’m going to broach. I don’t think it’s really my place to broach a lot of negativity, but we want the night to be really uplifting and celebrate a lot of women and celebrate a lot of women that maybe haven’t had as much of a spotlight as they should have had in recent years.”

SAG Awards to feature only female presenters
With Kristen Bell serving as the first-ever host of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, executive producer Kathy Connell decided to go with all female presenters to honor the #metoo movement. “I feel pretty strongly about the women’s movement,” she says. “Women stepped forward in such a huge way in this last year.” Bell adds: “I’m not the first female host. I’m the first host. The fact that a female was chosen to be the first one means my genitals become irrelevant.”
