Katrina Bowden turned heads on the red carpet at the Screen Actors
Guild Awards with a very special accessory – an engagement ring.
Her fiancé, Ben Jorgensen, popped the question Saturday night at a suite in the Four Seasons Hotel.
"I was so shocked," the 30 Rock star, 23, told E! host Giuliana Rancic Sunday night outside L.A.'s Shrine Exposition Center. "And I said, 'Oh my God,' and I hugged him."
His response? "He said, 'Is that a yes?' "

Forget places like Koi, Spago and The Ivy – with the feast awaiting them at the Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony, Hollywood's elite will be counting themselves among the world's luckiest gourmands faster then you can say "Brown Derby."
For the main course, James Beard Award-winning chef – and mom – Suzanne Goin is offering slow-roasted salmon with yellow beets, spicy carrot salad and raita; grilled chicken breast with black rice, pea shoots and tangerine vinaigrette; and roasted root vegetables with quinoa and persimmon salsa.
Even notoriously picky Jack Donaghy, the character Alec Baldwin is nominated for best actor in a TV comedy for playing on 30 Rock, would find no cause for complaint.
For those herbivores among the 1,200 joining the SAGs for dinner, Goin is serving a vegetarian option: spicy carrot salad with yellow beets, cucumber, and black mustard seeds; roasted root vegetables with quinoa and persimmon salsa; and black-rice salad with English peas, pea shoots and tangerine vinaigrette.

Armie Hammer will certainly be looking his best when he hits the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday. But he's looking pretty darn good in a mug shot that's just been released.
The J. Edgar star, who's nominated for best supporting actor, posed for this picture in November, when he was arrested for marijuana possession in Sierra Nevada, Texas.
Authorities allege they found pot cookies and a brownie, according to the police report.

Multiple nominee Kathy Bates and lead actors (and former PEOPLE Sexiest Men Alive) George Clooney and Brad Pitt head up the group of presenters just announced for this Sunday's 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Other newly announced presenters include Owen Wilson, Melissa McCarthy, Zoe Saldana, Kristen Wiig and Sir Ben Kingsley, producers announced Wednesday.
Bates, 63, notably received nominations in film and TV categories this year for her roles as Gertrude Stein in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris and Harriet Korn in Harry's Law.

Jean Dujardin likens his high recognition factor in his native France to living "in a big village," but with the accolades he's now receiving for his work in The Artist, the handsome actor had better get used to having fans in America.
"I am thrilled. I am proud. I am over the moon," Dujardin, speaking in French, told PEOPLE about his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for his role as a screen star in the silent, black-and-white pastiche about Hollywood's bumpy transition from silent movies to talkies.
"I'm incredibly surprised. And every day there are new awards, and it's so unbelievable."

Demián Bichir, star of the movie A Better Life, may not be a household name, but after a SAG nomination for best actor alongside George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, he better get used to being in the company of Hollywood's biggest stars.
Already well known in his home country, the Mexican-born actor, 48, is about to become more familiar to the rest of the world, too. Here are a few things about him.
1. He got lightheaded after his SAG nomination
When PEOPLE asked Bichir how he felt after his unexpected nomination for his role as an immigrant father in the drama A Better Life, he said, jokingly, "I really don't feel anything. I am a little numb right now. But then that may be because I am drunk. I have been drinking tequila all morning."

Jonah Hill has double the reason to celebrate: this week he snagged two major nominations for his supporting role opposite Brad Pitt in Moneyball – one from the Screen Actors Guild and one – a Golden Globe – from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
And yes, this puts him squarely in the running for an Oscar nod.
Though he admits to feeling "fantastic," the comedian-turned-dramatic actor, 27, told PEOPLE from the Atlanta set of the upcoming movie Neighborhood Watch, "I have been trying not to get wrapped up in all of this, in everything."

They like them. They really, really like them.
Screen Actors Guild members were so enamored with Glenn Close and Betty White this year that they nominated each actress twice for SAG Awards.
Close, 64, picked up two best-actress nods – one in the film category for Albert Nobbs, in which she plays a woman masquerading as a man in order to make a living in 19th-century Ireland; and one in the TV-drama category for Damages.
White, 89, also earned two best-actress nods – one in TV comedy for her sitcom Hot in Cleveland; and one in the TV movie or miniseries category for Hallmark Hall of Fame: The Lost Valentine, a modern-day story about a woman whose Navy husband went missing in World War II.

What an initiation into the red carpet club.
Patrick J. Adams, star of USA's drama Suits, woke up Wednesday morning to the surprise news that he was a Screen Actors Guild Award nominee for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series. It was his first-ever nomination – for anything!
"This is my first year for a lot of this stuff," Adams tells the Los Angeles Times's Show Tracker blog. "This is all brand new to me. ... I never, ever imagined it would get to this point."

What is this, a conspiracy?
Showtime's spy thriller Homeland, which I picked as my No. 1 show for 2011 in PEOPLE's year-end issue (and which is a pretty safe bet to dominate top-10 lists elsewhere), is homeless – at least when it comes to the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, announced Wednesday. (President Barack Obama, in the same issue of PEOPLE, reveals that the show is a favorite of his, as well. Just saying ...)
The show, renewed for a second season, wouldn't work if it weren't for the tense gamesmanship and sexual chemistry of Claire Danes, as a CIA analyst, and Damian Lewis, as a former POW whose life intersects suspiciously with a circle of Middle East terrorists. And yet neither is up for the award.
