30 Jan – In the wake of the nominations for the Academy Awards comes another of Hollywood's major events, the 18th Screen Actors Guild Awards 2012 and the cast of "The Help" helped the social drama land the best picture, best actress for Viola Davis and supporting actress for Octavia Spencer awards in the ceremony, according to CBS News.

On the other hand, French actor Jean Dujardin scored the lead actor award for the black-and-white silent film, "The Artist" while veteran actor Christopher Plummer took home outstanding male actor in a supporting role for "Beginners".

82-year-old Plummer said, "I'm so flattered to be on the same bill as the other actors in the category", while accepting the honor, and added that his co-star Ewan McGregor makes "acting look so easy."

Receiving the guild's life-achievement award was Mary Tyler Moore. The prize was presented by Dick Van Dyke, her co-star on the 1960s sitcom "The Dick Van Dyke Show."

"I love that woman," Van Dyke said during his introduction. "Beautiful and bright and talented ... She's given so much of herself to help other people."
