In fact, Arquette has known what kind of person she is from an early age, which is one reason why she did not straighten her teeth as a child. The talented actress recently told People, she chose not to do so because "it didn't feel like it would fit who I was inside."

Said game involves players using the pieces to make 'movie reels' - an idea that has certainly found a home with Hollywood's elite. Over the past eight years, a Hollywood Domino Gala has taken place in London, New York, the Cannes Film Festival, Puerto Rico, but the most important an prestigious event on the calendar takes place in in Los Angeles, on the Thursday before each year's Oscar ceremony.

Michael Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch Lead The Pack At SAG Awards Tonight

OK, so who’s nominated for the SAG Awards, happening tonight? The SAG ceremony is always more anticipated for the fashion and red carpet photos, rather than the actual show, but the winners list tends to be a good indicator for the Oscars later on. So, who’s on the list this year?

Michael Keaton
Michael Keaton is among the leading nominees for the SAG awards this year.

Boyhood and Birdman will go head to head in the best picture race, since the SAG awards don’t have separate genre categories. Michael Keaton, who stars in Birdman is a clear favourite this season for the honor, having scored wins for best actor in a comedy at the Golden Globes and for best actor at the Critics' Choice Awards, while Patricia Arquette won for best supporting actress in a drama at both shows, with Ellar Coltrane picking up best young actor awards at the Critics' Choice. Birdman won best acting ensemble at the Critics' Choice.

Patricia Arquette Paid Dog Walker More Than She Received For 'Boyhood'


Patricia Arquette Richard Linklater

Boyhood is the outstanding movie of the year and, barring a Crash style upset, it will be crowned Best Picture at the Academy Awards on February 27. Still, if there's something more absolute than Richard Linklater's film winning the evening's biggest award, it is Patricia Arquette winning Best Supporting Actress.

With respect to her fellow actresses, Arquette has nothing to beat. In a year of outstanding lead performances (Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Felicity Jones), Arquette's nearest competition will likely come in the form of Emma Stone for Birdman, Keira Knightley for The Imitation Game and Jessica Chastain for A Most Violent Year.
