The 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®
Sunday, January 21 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT on TNT and TBS 

          Lauded by critics for its style, simplicity and genuine warmth, the Screen Actors Guild Awards® presented by SAG-AFTRA, which made its debut in 1995, has become one of the industry’s most prized honors. The only televised awards shows to exclusively honor performers, it presents thirteen awards for acting in film and television in a fast moving two hour show which airs live on TNT and TBS. The awards focus on both individual performances as well as on the work of the entire ensemble of a drama series and comedy series, and the cast of a motion picture. These honors are fundamental to the spirit of the Screen Actors Guild Awards because they recognize what all actors know – that acting is a collaborative art.

          The show is one of the most reliable predictors of who will take home acting honors at the Academy Awards. Kristen Bell will host the show, which for the first time in its 24-year history will feature a host. Halle Berry, Dakota Fanning, Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Stone, Mandy Moore, Marisa Tomei, Niecy Nash, Olivia Munn, Maya Rudolph,  Rosanna Arquette and SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris will be among the presenters at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. One of the highlights of the SAG Awards show will be the SAG Life Achievement Award to Morgan Freeman.

 

          The Screen Actors Guild Awards are also unique in the size of its voting body. Two randomly selected panels of 2,500 members each from across the country choose the nominees for television and motion pictures.  All active members of SAG-AFTRA in the United States  -- more than 121,000 members -- receive voting information to select the outstanding performances of the year.
