Yes, it was.

Actress Cate Blanchett first hit the red carpet at the SAG Awards in style.

And gave a winning and witty response on the red carpet.

Zing!

Blanchett then took home the award for Best Actress for her role in “Blue Jasmine.”

Her acceptance speech scored. First, she threw a little shade at Matthew McConaughey. As Twitchy reported, his acceptance speech Saturday night baffled and sparked “what is he smoking?” snickers.

Yep, hilarious.

But Blanchett wasn’t done shade-throwing!

[Editor’s note: Please see the update at the end of this post. Elan Gale seems to have admitted this was a hoax.]

What could possibly make Alec Baldwin laugh? The notoriously cranky airline passenger got a kick out of how Elan Gale, producer of “The Bachelor,” reportedly dealt with another cranky passenger without blowing up. Instead, Gale resorted to a strategy of sending drinks with notes attached.

The Thanksgiving saga began like this.

The note reads:

Dear Lady in 7A

It has come to my attention that today is your Thanksgiving! It must be hard to not be with your family. Please accept this glass of wine. It is a gift from me to you. Hopefully if you drink it, you won’t be able to use your mouth to talk!

Love, Elan

No wonder Alec Baldwin thinks he’s found a kindred soul, even though most flight attendants would consider him more of a “Diane.”

[Update]

Was Diane a hoax? Looks that way (unless this is another one of those hoax-hoaxes):
