Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens are joined by new SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher to announce the nominees in 15 film and television categories at a ceremony beginning at 7:00 a.m. PT on SAG-AFTRA’s Instagram Live page.
The guild also announced the nominees for the annual stunt ensemble this morning (see the full list of noms below).
Following this morning’s nominations, guild members will vote January 19-25 ahead of the awards ceremony now broadcasting on TNT and TBS on February 27 at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, a departure from the usual location of the guild’s Shrine Auditorium.
In 2021, the SAG Awards were held as a one-hour virtual ceremony, postponed to April due to the restrictions of the pandemic; for now, a personal event is planned, complete with a red carpet. There are also plans for a virtual backstage for winners.
Last year’s winners were led by Netflix’s The Process of the Chicago 7 winning for Motion Picture Cast, on his way to an Oscar for Best Picture nomination, the closest category. The crown and Schitt’s Creek were the big winners on the TV side.
The film winners tend to be strong Oscar indicators, yielding the major crossover of SAG-AFTRA voices with the Actors Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. in 2020, Parasite took the SAG ensemble trophy on the way to the Oscar.
