George Clooney isn't shy about expressing his feelings. Just ask Mary Tyler Moore.
Asked at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she won the Life Achievement Award, whether she'd be mingling with any A-listers in particular – say, Mr. Clooney himself? – Moore recalled her thrilling first encounter with the best actor nominee.
"I met George Clooney in a very small elevator, and he came over and he put his arms around me," the actress, 75, told PEOPLE. "I think he said something like, 'I love you.' It was maybe two years ago. I am going to seek him out tonight."

When asked to describe her phenomenal success the last few months, Sandra Bullock has one word for it: Baffling.
The Blind Side star, who has made her name in lighter romantic comedy fare such as The Proposal and Miss Congeniality, says the response to her serious turn as tough-as-nails mom Leigh Anne Tuohy has been "overwhelming."
"I love doing what I love doing, but it's not a road that leads to this place," she tells PEOPLE. "It's just been completely baffling and unexpected and overwhelming and sweet and fun."

Romance seemed to be in the air Saturday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles as stars and their spouses showed their sweet affection for each other.
Kevin Bacon was a bundle of nerves before his name was announced as best male actor in a TV movie or miniseries for his role in HBO's Taking Chance, but wife Kyra Sedgwick kept him looking his best. How? "I had to blot his face a little," she admitted to PEOPLE at the afterparty.
Mad Men star Christina Hendricks's new husband, Geoffrey Arend, was clearly his wife's biggest fan. "I feel like the luckiest man ever. She's such a cutie pie," he raved. "When Michael C. Hall said 'I want to thank my wife for wearing that dress,' I feel that way every single awards show." Hendricks agreed, telling PEOPLE, "He's been feeling me all night."

While live blogging the Screen Actors Guild Awards on PEOPLE.com, our readers got very vocal about who scored big – and who tanked. Relive the night's highlights – and lowlights – as voted on by you!
Whose risk-taking tuxedo do you like the most?
Justin Timberlake's blue-shirted Dolce & Gabbana ensemble easily won this category, taking 50% of the vote over Glee star Mark Salling's retro suit (29%) and Kevin Bacon's all-black ensemble (21%).
What's your favorite of Betty White's roles?
The recipient of the lifetime achievement SAG Award has held many memorable roles, but for 67% of PEOPLE.com readers, her crowning achievement was her turn as ditsy Rose Nylund on Golden Girls. Her portrayal of saucy Sue Ann on Mary Tyler Moore was a distant second, with 22% of the vote.
Who has the most daring cleavage?
Although women didn't bare their, ahem, assets as proudly as they did at the Golden Globes, a few did take the plunge – and you thought Glee star Lea Michele was the most brave, with 83% of you calling her green Malandrino gown the most daring. Anna Paquin in Alexander McQueen came in second, with 17% of the vote.
Who looked best in red?
Crimson was definitely the color of the night! And according to 43% of PEOPLE.com readers, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks was the hottest woman in red, with Carey Mulligan and Mariah Carey tied for second place, with 29% of the vote each.
A beard might be the hottest accessory for Hollywood's leading men these days, but that doesn't mean PEOPLE.com readers like it! George Clooney and Timberlake tied for first place, each claiming 35% of the vote as the star who most needs a trip to the barber shop. In second place? Mad Men star Jon Hamm, with 24% of the vote.

Michael C. Hall had plenty to celebrate Saturday night.
Just a week after winning a Golden Globe for his serial killer star turn on Showtime's Dexter, the actor was named outstanding actor in a drama series at Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. And, he told PEOPLE backstage, his cancer is in remission.
"I'm two-thirds of the way through this treatment that already has this thing in remission," he said. "It's nice in the homestretch to have this kind of shock of positive energy. It's a celebration."
Hall, 38, who is very private, initially said he revealed that he was being treated for Hodgkin's lymphoma, because he knew he would be making several public appearances. "Because award shows were imminent, I had to make a statement," he said at last week's Globes.
As it turns out, there has been one unexpected and positive result of his admission. "I've been feeling very well," he told reporters backstage at the SAG Awards, "because I made this announcement. Because of these public events, I've heard from people I would have not have heard from otherwise."

Is there an Oscar in her future?
Sandra Bullock continued her awards-show winning streak, picking up the trophy for outstanding performance by a female leading actor for The Blind Side at Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards.
"If this were only not televised so I could use the appropriate words I'm feeling right now," Bullock, who won the same award at last weekend's Golden Globes, said. "I'm Sandra Bullock, and I'm an actor and I'm so proud to say that in a room full of faces that have inspired me."
The actress also paid loving – and humorous – tribute to her husband, Jesse James, from the podium at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium.
"You get dressed up in monkey suits and you sit at a table with people you don't know," she said. "And I leave you there, and then you come back with, like, Morgan Freeman's e-mail [address]. I don't know how you do it. I love you so much, and you're really hot. And I want you so much!"

Sure, it was an auspicious night for many actors – including Sandra Bullock and the cast of Glee – who took top honors at Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. But the night was also full of hilarious, off-the-cuff moments from the laid-back awards show, which finds the nominated actors casually sitting at banquet tables with plenty of food – and drinks.
Here are five of our favorite moments from the SAG Awards:
Drew's Sickly Sweet Acceptance SpeechWas it something she ate? An overwhelmed Drew Barrymore admitted to feeling a little ill while accepting her outstanding actor in a miniseries or television movie award for Grey Gardens. "Right now I feel really sick and nervous," she said in a speech punctuated by pauses and lots of 'ums.' "And that is a good thing because when you feel that way, I think you're on a good path – at least in a professional sense." The actress also noted she wasn't the best extemporaneous speaker. "Improv is usually a good thing and it's backfiring on me very badly right now," she said. "I want to speak from my heart and spontaneously and it's not going well."
Felicity Is Short SightedGood thing Alec Baldwin was there! While announcing the nominees for outstanding actor in a drama series, Felicity Huffman couldn't read the teleprompter. Why? She wasn't wearing her glasses. "You're going to have to click up the type because I can't see that," the squinting actress said. "I don't have my glasses on … [I'm] not going to be able to do it."

It was supposed to be a sweet tribute – but Sandra Bullock couldn't help but zing her Proposal costar Betty White a little before presenting her with the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award trophy on Saturday.
"Yes, I know that a lot of people really find Betty White inspiring," said Bullock. "I mean, she's been working in an industry for more than six decades in a business that doesn't exactly value getting older.
"Me, I find Betty White annoying," she deadpanned. "I'm sorry, it's true," she said, detailing highlights from White's illustrious, Emmy-winning career from her earliest work in the '50s to her present day roles. "Betty, you make me feel bad about myself. You make me feel like the slacker."

Charlie Sheen has been visiting his wife, Brooke Mueller, daily while she is being treated with antibiotics for pneumonia in the intensive care unit of a Los Angeles hospital – and the actor plans to skip Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards to be with her.
"Charlie has been great, very attentive and nice to Brooke," her mother, Moira Fiore, tells PEOPLE, tells PEOPLE. "He is not even going to the SAG Awards tonight. He wants to be with her."
Mueller, 32, was admitted to the ICU earlier in the week after an infection entered her bloodstream after surgery for an impacted wisdom tooth. The star of Two and a Half Men has visited his wife every day. He is allowed to have contact with Mueller while she remains in the hospital despite a protective order against him resulting from his domestic violence arrest on Christmas Day.
