Emma Thompson didn't win Best Actress at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in L.A. on Saturday, Jan. 18, but she did win over the audience and at-home viewers with her infectious wit. In fact, the Saving Mr. Banks star has been stealing the show throughout the entire awards season. Here, E! News looks back at some of the outspoken Brit's more memorable moments in 2013 and 2014.

One of the 54-year-old movie star's most appealing qualities is her ability to laugh at herself. During her hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Nov. 7, 2013, for example, she lost her balance and fell down on the red carpet. Laughing at herself, Thompson threw her hands down in mock exasperation before standing up to collect herself.

Thompson—who's spoken candidly about internet porn and polarizing celebrities—also poked fun at her Saving Mr. Banks perm in a Parade cover story. "It was a nightmare. People would bleat in the streets as I went by. I didn't have sex for six months!" she joked. At the National Board of Review Awards on Jan. 7, 2014, she again joked that the hairstyle "was a great sacrifice" for her sex life.

At the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 12, 2014, the Lanvin-clad beauty appeared onstage with her Christian Louboutins in one hand and a martini in the other. "I just want you to know, this red, it's my blood," Thompson joked about the red bottoms of her heels. "I present the nominees, well, not me the Voice of God, for Best Screenplay." Before announcing the winner, she handed Miss Golden Globe Sosie Bacon her drink and tossed her painful shoes behind her shoulder.

Six days after kicking off her heels at the Golden Globes, Thompson opted for more comfortable Christian Louboutin sandals at the 20th Annual SAG Awards. She photobombed Lupita Nyong'o on the red carpet and sipped vodka out of a plastic blue cup when the nominees for Best Actress were announced. When Thompson presented an award with Ewan McGregor, the actress joked about the overture playing in the background. "Is this music available on CD at all?" she quipped.

Thompson may not be an official winner—or an Oscar nominee—but she's certainly won our hearts.
