Amber Riley hits just the right note (Yep, I went straight for the cliche!) in these chic and flattering ruffles.

The Golden Globe Awards are a joke. I always think of that show as 5 guys in a basement swooning over their favorite celebs (which is how things like “The Tourist” get nominated.) It’s fun, but you can’t take it seriously.

The Screen Actors Guild, on the other hand, is made up of just about every working actor imaginable — from A-list to Z-list. So I take it a bit more seriously. But not half as seriously as they take it, with all the self-congratulatory “And I’m an actor!” horseshite.

The fashions reflect that, too. We’re seeing some serious “try” happening at the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards — and I don’t just mean Angie Harmon trying to steal the show by marrying herself in that huge dress.

Some stars are using this opportunity to experiment and I appreciate the effort, even if several young ladies seemed to miss the DON’T CLASH WITH THE RED CARPET memo. Other stars (Lea Michele!) have either given up or don’t think the SAG Awards are worth their A-game.

Saving the best for the Oscars?

BEST DRESSED

Dianna! I did not recognize the "Glee" girl with those smoky eyes. I love this look for her. Dark, edgy eyes with a long, schoolgirl-length dress. She's trying without trying to be someone else.

I don’t really care too much about “Glee,” but the “Glee” crowd is all over the SAGs. I love what Dianna Agron and Amber Riley are doing … and not much else. Dianna kinda reminds me of Emma Roberts in this look, for some reason. The eyes?

Nice, Ariel!

See. This is how you get noticed. Ariel Winter is the younger of the two “Modern Family” sisters and she usually gets overshadowed. Not tonight. She keeps it sweet and understated and perfect for her age. Her on-screen sister didn’t get the same memo.

Yay! I love when she looks good!

Thank God. I didn’t like how Julianna Margulies looked at the Golden Globes and ever since someone said I looked like her (about 15 years ago) I’ve always tied my fortunes to her. She looks gorgeous here (and nothing like me, which is the best compliment I could give her). And I’ve just started watching “The Good Wife,” which is pretty darn good even if I’m upset that she’s winning awards over my “Mad Men” family.

Always.

As long as Sofia Vergara wears a tight, bright dress with her boobs popping out, she’ll make the best dressed list.

Way to go, Nat!

This is much, much better than what Natalie Portman wore to the Golden Globes. That red flower? So tacky. This is classy.

Oh my God she looks GOOD!

It’s always news when Helena Bonham Carter doesn’t pull a Bjork. I love her either way, but it’s nice to see she doesn’t just overdo it for shock value. Sometimes she does do understated — and she does it well.

Ice queen.

Lots of white tonight. I like it. I like Amy Adams here. I don’t care for her too much in “The Figher” but at least she doesn’t go as over-the-top as Melissa Leo. Stop rewarding her for that Boston cliche.

I do love the silver.

I can’t really decide if this is a good one or not. I love the color, but I’m not sure it’s flattering to Naya Rivera’s shape … or lack thereof. Maybe it’s just a bad angle. I found a lot of bad angle photos online.

Ha! Go Angie!

This just makes me smile. Angie Harmon is DYING to get on the LOOK AT ME list with this one. She’s hosting her own personal Oscars here. Jennifer Lopez would appreciate the cheek. I appreciate it, too. Someone has to go over the top!

This reminds me of something, though. Something she wore many moons ago...

I’m rooting for Winona Ryder, so I’m glad to see this. I like it. I don’t love it, but I like it a lot. Good for her.

I have a dress that has the same color blend. Just sayin'...

I like Julia Stiles and I don’t believe she did break up Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter. Speaking of MCH, he looks like crap tonight. Is he feeling OK? Now I’m worried.

WORST DRESSED

Melissa Leo, do not make me hate you.

I’m getting annoyed with Melissa Leo. I think she’s being overpraised for an over-the-top performance in the overrated “The Fighter” and now she’s wearing some Saran Wrap. She looks pregnant in this shot. Just a bad angle? Even if it is, it’s way too much shiny silver.

Not that Meredith would ever dress well.

Which fashion sin is worse: Too much fabric or too little? Check out this dress worn by the otherwise lovely Kate Flannery of “The Office” and discuss.

Blah.

Maybe if I had a different posed shot of Jenna Fischer’s dress it wouldn’t seem so bad. But right now it’s just so dull.

Stop it. And for the record, "Boardwalk Empire" is not that good.

What the hell is going on with Paz de la Huerta?

I hate blush tones.

I really like Jayma Mays so I looked at this dress from several angles before deciding I just don’t like it. I hate the way it bunches in the chest and of course I’m never into blush/peach/nude type non-colors. I don’t like the knee peek. I don’t like the high neck. The shoes are OK.

Yawn.

Who is this and what happened to the fashion-forward Lea Michele? And where did her left boob go?

Well, she'll be noticed!

I ADORE Hailee Steinfeld of “True Grit” and I applaud the way she’s experimenting with colors and patterns in public like this. But she looks like the Dunkin Donuts logo and she clashes with the carpet. Side note: How tall is she? In photos it looks like she dwarfs everyone else.

Clash of the mini titans!

I really, really like Sarah Hyland’s dress but I really, really hate how it clashes with the red carpet. Always check the carpet color before showing up. The photos we see tend to come from the (in this case red) carpet, not the audience or even the podium. Dress for the carpet, I say.

SPLIT DECISIONS

Mila is all about the "I'm so f*cking hot" face.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I don’t like this against the red carpet. It just seems messy and she looks pissed. Is Mila Kunis a diva or does she just play one in front of the camera?

Too thin.

I don’t really have a problem with this dress, I’m just distracted by the thinness of Ellie Kemper. It’s all I can see.

Only Tilda Swinton can get away with being Tilda Swinton. And God love her for it.

In my fantasy land, I’m wearing a green dress to the Golden Globe Awards. And the Oscars. And the SAG Awards. And everywhere else. Because green is the way to go, as Scarlett Johansson proved at the MTV Movie Awards.

Thankfully, Hollywood paid attention. Lots of green. And lots of red. (Thanks Sofia Vergara, January Jones and Christina Hendricks!)

Unfortunately they also went for nude/blush tones and I have never been a big fan. Natalie Portman even tried to combine the blush and red in an epic fail. (But I still don’t think she looked as bad as Heidi Klum.)

See below for my best and worst from the night.

BEST DRESSED

In my dream world, I look like this. But I'm NOT married to him.

Catherine Zeta-Jones upstaged her not-that-sick-anymore husband, Michael Douglas —which is probably how he likes it and why he married her — in arguably my favorite gown of the night. I had forgotten how gorgeous she is. She reminded me.

Eat your heart out, Don Draper!

I think January Jones is the most consistently interesting person on any red carpet. She was my favorite at the Emmys (except her hair) and I love her bold statement here. She is so confident when it comes to fashion, so why does she suck so bad as a “Saturday Night Live” host? She’s even dating the hottest SNL guy, Jason Sudeikis. I don’t get it. Anyway, I love this look. She is beyond stunning.

Not my favorite green of the night, but I appreciate the effort.

Angelina Jolie wore emerald earrings to the Oscars … was it last year? No, I think maybe the year before. Can’t remember. Anyway, she wore those gorgeous earrings with a bland black dress and this time she’s covering up her scrawny frame in a full green dress. At least she looked good while Ricky Gervais trashed her film, “The Tourist.” Awkward! He really knows how to get the groans.

Look at her "I'm so effing hot" expression. She's right.

Mila Kunis, the other hottie from “Black Swan,” also wore green. She looks just like the elder daughter from “Modern Family.” I think it’s funny that both Mila and her “Black Swan” buddy, Natalie Portman, have almost identical movies coming out. Mila’s is called “Friends with Benefits” and Natalie’s is “No Strings Attached.” That trend sucks.

The beloved Elisabeth Moss (Peggy!) indulges my beloved green dress trend. Thanks, lady!

I love Elisabeth Moss, even if she is a Scientologist. What do I care. She looks great and looking great is the best revenge. (Take that, Fred Armisen!) This is not my favorite green dress, but I’m all-in when it comes to green tonight.

White is not part of my fun color theme, but I adore Hailee Steinfeld.

Miss Hailee was amazing in “True Grit” (which was otherwise just OK to me) and looks gorgeous here. Sleek hair! I love sleek hair.

This is a good blue. If you have to pick a shade of blue, this is a very flattering one. Love the woman on the right photo-bombing Amy's shot.

What is going on with him? I'm not into the scruffy.

I like Amy Adams, even if I wasn’t that into her in “The Fighter.” But I was only into Christian Bale in “The Fighter.”

Speaking of Christian, why is he all of a sudden always gushing about his wife?

Jealous.

Actually, I know the answer: He’s trying so hard to win an Oscar for “The Fighter.”

So can we love him now? I miss loving him.

And what did he say to Roberto De Niro?

Christina Hendricks is now officially Jessica Rabbit. And yet, this is very restrained for her.

She knows. She knows exactly what she’s doing. Look at her. When is “Mad Men” coming back? By the way, look at what they’re doing to Johnny Depp in this shot. AP recalled this but I’m keeping it.

They say you should pick one asset to highlight -- legs, shoulders, chest, etc. -- and it's pretty clear which one she chose.

Sofia! Always looks good. Doesn’t know how not to. Love the back. Baby got back, for sure. Love or hate? Hit up FabSugar’s poll.

I don't think anyone else could pull this off.

Holy crap. When is Halle Berry going to look just average? Her perpetual beauty is getting to be annoying.

Pretty in pink. Yep, I went straight for the cliche.

See. This is how good it looks when you keep it simple. Granted, Claire Danes is a bit too thin, but I looooove this simply chic look.

WORST DRESSED

Is that a wig? It should be.

Sandra Bullock has given up. The hair. The dress. So far from her big Oscar moment. Sad.

I do not accept this rose.

Natalie Portman is pregnant but for heaven’s sake, she’s not THAT pregnant. She recently got even tinier for “Black Swan” so it’s kind of funny how in the same 365 days she’ll probably be at her smallest (ballet dancer) and largest (preggers!) as an adult woman. Anyway, the dress is ugly.

Even Hope Davis seems to know Hope Davis went wrong here.

There are at least three dresses in this one dress. Oh Hope. The blue is nice, anyway.

Come on, now! People used to say I looked like you. I need you to be the better version of me!

This is one of my biggest disappointments. Juliana Margulies is not Tilda Swinton, I don’t expect her to look bad. She’s gorgeous and this dress does not flatter.

J.Lo is a no go, but not in a dramatic way. Too safe.

Jennifer Lopez does not look good here. She normally does, but it doesn’t work this time. Blah. I don’t like how she overdoes her face.

No "Glee" for this look.

How did Lea Michele end up on the worst list? She’s usually so good at keeping it simple and glam, but she goes overboard here. And it keeps bunching in the wrong places.

I like the silver but the rest of it is a no. And it's wrinkled.

Look, no one loves Michelle Williams more than I do. But this cute hippie look is just not right. And it’s not flattering. Frown.

You really can't expect more than this from Tilda Swinton.

The one and only. The woman. The myth. The legend. The Tilda.

Always unique ... in the worst way possible. But still lovable. Look at her mismatched shoes!

How could I forget Helena Bonham Carter! She is the new Bjork. I adore her. The SHOES! Watch “The King’s Speech” and join me in wishing you lived in Geoffrey Rush’s office.

SPLIT DECISIONS

I love Olivia’s dress, but not the shoes.

Olivia Wilde was one of the first ladies to hit the red carpet. I loved her Cinderella dress and didn’t even mind her bangs. But the shoes. Too much for me.

How do I feel about this? And who is he?

Scarlett Johansson is definitely going old Hollywood, but I’m not sure about the sleeves. And the color. I just want color. Why is that too much to ask?
