Did you know that the Screen Actors Guild Awards statue is the heaviest awards statue, weighing in at a whooping 12 pounds? Or how about that Michelle Williams is considered an Independent Spirit Awards It girl? This trivia and more can be found in the February issue of Vanity Fair, which features a comparison grid of the top five awards ceremonies.
Sprinkled with funny factoids, the piece is mostly an entertaining rundown of the stereotypical experience at each event. Gems include that the "sparkly-hoodie dress code" is a distinguishing feature at the Indie Awards and that Kim Kardashian is the go-to date at the Golden Globes. See the complete grid here.
