We all know that the “cool” symbol for a “loser” is an outstretched index finger and thumb.  How come there isn’t a symbol for a winner; say, two intersecting thumbs and two outstretched index fingers to form a capital “W?”  Well, if this “W” symbol existed, there’d be a lot of “W” fingers at the SAG Awards of 2012.  And, many fingers equal many hands.

So, let’s give a hand to the SAG Award winners:

“Modern Family” deservedly deserves two the W’s—as this marks the second year in a row they’ve won the SAG award!

With good reason:

In its first season, this epic show became the sixth highest-rated scripted show in America among adults between the ages of 18 and 49, and the third-highest rated new show.  The show’s second season’s ratings rose 34% from the previous season among adults between the ages of 18 and 49 which gives the youngest cast members a chance to get older before our appreciative eyes.  These include the 30 years old and younger Rico Rodriguez, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and the recurring guest star Reid Ewing.

Thankfully and hopefully, this fine acting core will keep its eyes on the (acting) prize and not on the temptations that have tempted and ruined other young stars.
