At the 14th annual SAG awards, Hollywood paid tribute to the best performances of 2007 and provided style watchers with plenty of glamour. But after stars like Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey had helped hand out all the trophies-and hammed it up for the cameras backstage-it was time for the post-ceremony celebration to begin-even if it only lasted a brief while. "I've got to wake up very very early to work," Hudson said during her short stay at the People magazine/Entertainment Industry Foundation bash. "I'm a working girl and I've got a son. I can't be up too late!"

Jenna Fischer singled out Angela Kinsey's (in A Pea in the Pod) baby bump as the cast hit the press room to celebrate their win for Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series. "I love that the only skin I have to show is my arms. After the holidays, I didn't want to show much more than that!" said the Office worker of her Collette Dinnigan gown. Luckily, Fischer's newly-acquired award gave her an impromptu workout. "[The award weighs] about twenty pounds. It's a bicept workout for sure!" she said.
