Raw Video: The Casting Of The SAG Statuette, The Actor



The Screen Actors Guild Award is easily one of the most coveted awards in the industry. And while the world anticipates the January 18 live airing of the show, HipHollywood had a chance to go behind the scenes and see the casting of the SAG statuettes.

On Thursday, HipHollywood headed over to the American Fine Arts Foundry to see the incredible process in which the SAG statuette is created. Using the wax process, molten bronze metal is poured into the molds … By the way, the furnace at 2000 degrees.

HipHollywood watched the skilled craftsmen in action as they created, The Actor, a nude male figure holding both a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy. 13 honorees in five film and eight television categories will receive the 16-inch tall, 12 pound statuette which stands on a base of polished black granite.

While attending the event, HH caught up with Breaking Bad star Lavell Crawford to talk about whether or not he will be taking home the bronze award.

“I know we are going to pull it,” he said about his Breaking Bad cast. “I mean it’s a great show and I’m just honored to be nominated. I couldn’t believe it when I found out about it. It had to be though, the show is epic. Everybody talks about it, they blog about it, I mean come on.”

Breaking Bad garnered four SAG nominations, including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

In the film category, Steven McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave leads the SAG nominations with four, while Lee Daniels’ The Butler trails right behind with 3 nods.

The SAG Awards will be simulcast on January 18 on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m.


Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden



Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
