Why Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Didn't Show Up to the SAG Awards
After two years of dreadful virtual awards shows, the stars all showed up for an exciting night of in-person festivities at the 28th SAG Awards. From Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to the entire Squid Games cast, all of our favorite celebs were in attendance — well, almost all. One couple who was noticeably absent from the evening was none other than Bennifer (Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez).
Despite his nomination in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role category for his part in The Tender Bar, the actor was not in the audience when his name was read. The SAG ultimately went to Coda's Troy Kotsur, who made history as the first deaf male actor to win a solo SAG Award.
A source recently told that the couple is very respectful of each other's families. "They really trust each other and that is so important to both," the insider explained to the publication. "They also have so much in common in terms of their careers, and both have kids with ex partners, so they both get the dynamics of each other's lives and families."
