"The Office" Wins SAG Award for Best Comedy Ensemble

Get our your Dunder-Mifflin snowglobes and Dwight bobbleheads and prepare to celebrate.

Congrats to the cast of The Office, which took home the top prize tonight at the SAG Awards.

The gang from Scranton scored Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, beating out the Wisteria Lane ladies of Desperate Housewives, those spoiled Hollywood players on Entourage, the fashionistas at Mode on Ugly Betty, and those suburban potheads on Weeds.

It was also especially a good night for Steve Carell, who also managed to snag a win for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture for his work in Little Miss Sunshine, along with Abigail Breslin, Greg Kinnear, Paul Dano, Alan Arkin, and Toni Collette. Congratulations, Steve. (I hope it makes up a little for getting passed over in favor of 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin AGAIN.)

TV winners included America Ferrera for Ugly Betty (take that, Felicity Huffman), the aforementioned Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock, Chandra Wilson for Grey's Anatomy, Hugh Laurie for House (beating out Kiefer Sutherland again), and Helen Mirren and Jeremy Irons (deja vu) for HBO miniseries Elizabeth I.

Not surprisingly, Grey's Anatomy took home the prize for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Other winners on the film side: Helen Mirren for The Queen (hurrah!), Forest Whitaker for The Last King of Scotland (making an Oscar win for Whitaker a very real possibility), and Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson for their supporting roles in Dreamgirls.

What can I say? At least I'm happier than the results of the Golden Globes, especially given The Office's win for best ensemble. Happy days.

I'm glad the SAG awards honored two of the best ensemble casts in the entertainment industry (for "The Office" and "Little Miss Sunshine"). I would add an extra award for "The Departed" too!

I am so happy that the OFFICE won, especially since they SO should have won over UGLY BETTY at the GG. (Still don't get why you like that show.)

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
