The 19th edition of the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday was where the cinematic in crowd got to rub well-moisturized elbows with the elite of the workaday TV world. Highlights from TV, backstage and the red carpet:

» Affleck ascendant. Is “Argo” looking at a best-picture Oscar? That was the buzz after the show, now that the movie has taken top awards from the Golden Globes, the Producers Guild and SAG.

» Closer to her dream. Anne Hathaway continued her march to expected Oscar glory next month with another supporting-actress win for her role as tragic prostitute Fantine in “Les Misérables.”

» Honest to Abe. Daniel Day-Lewis got the vote as best film actor for playing the 16th president. Despite quoting from the Hippocratic Oath in his acceptance speech, backstage, Day-Lewis didn’t think his speech stood up to Lincolnian standards.

» Rock steady. “30 Rock” won acting awards for both Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey in its final season. Too bad it’s ending; how will Baldwin, who won his eighth SAG, fill his trophy shelf?

» Help from the Family. And, in case that doesn’t work, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, as he accepted the award for TV comedy ensemble for “Modern Family,” encouraged the casts of 30 Rock and The Office, also closing its doors this season, to apply for jobs for his sitcom.

» A less modern family. The winning cast of PBS drama “Downton Abbey” answered questions backstage, among them: How did you win it? Said Phyllis Logan, who plays housekeeper Mrs. Hughes: “There are 10 times as many of us (actors). It’s quantity, not quality.”
