A night full of comedy, achievement, glitz, glamour, and astonishing fashion pieces. The 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG/SAGA), one of the major award shows dedicated to honoring actors/actresses for their work in television and film, aired Sunday, January 29, on TNT and TBS at 7pm CST. Opening the SAG Awards this year was award-winning actor, Ashton Kutcher. However, his introduction was non-traditional this year. In light of President Trump’s recent travel ban executive order, Kutcher decided to briefly speak on behalf of the anti-Trump Americans and the refugees seeking shelter in America.

“Hello to everyone watching at home and in airports that belong in my America. You are part of the fabric of who we are, and we love you and welcome you empathically.”


Before the awards, Ashton Kutcher tweeted about his wife, Mila Kunis, who is from Ukraine


Aside from Kutcher’s empowering opening, here were some of the most notable looks from the red carpet that night.
