Not exactly known as the most thrilling of the major awards shows, the Screen Actors Guild Awards tends to get short shrift when it comes to anticipation and attention. It's only a handful of acting awards, after all. There's no host. It's on cable. And it used to be (and is once again, this year) on a Saturday.

But the SAG Awards shouldn't be ignored! And not only because it's the other show where champagne is flowing at the table...

SAG just started handing out these honors—in the form of statues called Actors—in 1995, making this a relatively new tradition when compared to the Oscars (now in its 88th year) or the Grammys (58) or even the Golden Globes, which just turned 73. So it can't even lay claim to a storied history yet.

The show's youth, however, makes it easier to wrangle the moments that are worth remembering from the past two decades, ahead of tomorrow's 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards. And we'll bet that you forgot about most of them, not least because you had no idea the SAGs existed until 2006.

So without further adieu, here are 22 things that have happened at the SAGs over the years:

Seinfeld Cast, SAG Awards

Seinfeld won the inaugural award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series in 1995 and would lay claim to the honor for the rest of its historic run, dethroned only once—the following year—by...

Friends Cast, SAG Awards

Look, it's the entire cast of Friends. You just don't see that any more these days.

Halle Berry, SAG Awards, Split

Halle Berry walked the red carpet in 1995, apparently stumbling into a fountain of youth along the way, because here she also is 19 years later looking nary a day older.

Also at that first ceremony in 1995...

Jonathan Taylor Thomas, SAG Awards

Star of your kid-bedroom wall Jonathan Taylor Thomas! Home Improvement was one of the most-watched shows of the entire decade and the then-13-year-old actor was the stuff tween dreams were made of.

Angelina Jolie, SAG Awards

Twelve-year-old Dakota Fanning brought a Shirley Temple doll with her on stage in 2006 to introduce Lifetime Achievement Award honoree Shirley Temple Black.

SAG has a history of recognizing the young talent in its midst. Dakota was a nominee at 8 for her role in I Am Sam and Jacob Tremblay, 9, is nominated this year for his supporting performance in Room, both of them following in the footsteps of...

Haley Joel Osment, SAG Awards

The cast of Grey's Anatomy won best drama ensemble in 2007. Five of these 11 actors remain on the show. Three of the six that left played characters who were killed off in utmost tragic fashion. Also part of the win but soon to be fired and absent that night amid off-set controversy: Isaiah Washington.

While this nostalgic walk down SAG Awards memory lane is serving as a real blast from the past, we're also reminded that we all make mistakes.

The Dior gown of course wasn't really falling apart, but J.Law did frankly admit later, while being forced to relive the moment on Piers Morgan Live, "My pants fell off! Somebody trips me on the way, I remember that...There it starts to fall off...and I'm keeping it together, keeping it together, and...my pants fall off again."

No one's a better cheerleader than Aaron Paul, here cheering one of Bryan Cranston's two SAG wins for playing Walter White.
