One of the coolest parts about living in Los Angeles is the proximity to Hollywood and celebrities.  Each year, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards) are held at the Shrine Auditorium, which happens to be located across the street from campus!  This year, I decided to stalk the red carpet after the show.

While celebrities waited for their cars to arrive, they often walked over to the barricade of screaming fans (of which I was a part).  I got to see a very long list of celebrities, but some of the highlights for me were the cast of The Office, Modern Family, 30 Rock (yes, Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey!), and Glee.  I even got to meet some of them!

Here are some pictures of me from the night:


Me with Ty Burrell, aka Phil Dunphy on Modern Family!


Ariel Winter, aka Alex Dunphy on Modern Family!


Me, my friend Lexy, and Phyllis Smith, aka Phyllis Vance on The Office!

I also got to see some major celebrities from movies, which was especially exciting as a film minor.  I saw Jessica Chastain, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Day Lewis, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, and Sally Field!  Overall, I would say it was a very successful night of stalking celebrities.  I’m excited to go back next year!
