We’ve already mentioned during the Golden Globes this year that Hollywood seems to be in retrograde. Giving awards to Madonna, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Jessica Lange is just so 2002. But we also noted that the actors themselves seem to be going into a kind of time-warp, none of which was more apparent than at last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards: while some (Mr. Pitt) are reliving the heady glory years of the early aughts, others (like Angelina Jolie) just refuse to age at all.
And what’s with dragging Dick Van Dyke and Patrick Duffy out to parade around memories of their former careers? That just seems mean.
