How to WatchThe HostThe PresentersThe Nominees
The 2018 award season has officially kicked off. Starting with this year's iconic Golden Globes Awards followed by the Critics' Choice Awards, the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards is up next—recognizing the best performances in film and television.
This year's show is expected to be a head-turner, much like the 74th annual Golden Globes where actresses wore all black to support the #MeToo movement and #TimesUp legal defense fund. Unlike other award shows, actors pick the winners at the SAG Awards—making it extremely special for them to recognize their peers in the industry. Here, everything you need to know about the upcoming ceremony:
How to Watch
The 24th annual Screen Actor's Guild Awards will be taking place on Sunday, January 21 on TNT and TBS starting at 8 p.m. ET. The red carpet begins on E! at 6 p.m. ET. TNT is also live-streaming a red carpet show starting at 5:30 p.m. ET. If you don't have cable, you can stream the show online here. You can also stream the awards on Hulu if you have the Hulu With Live TV plan.
Kristen Bell will be SAG's first-ever host, and she's extremely excited to head to the show. "I’m going to be as awkward and as weird as possible, and hopefully that will make someone smile," she says. "We're going to have a lot of fun."
Typically, award shows pair male and female presenters together. This year, the SAG Awards won't have any male presenters at all. Instead, all 13 award categories will be presented by females in response to the sexual harassment and assault allegations that have taken place within Hollywood and beyond.
"Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell told The Hollywood Reporter. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”
Presenters confirmed so far include: Dakota Fanning, Olivia Munn, Niecy Nash, Maya Rudolph, Gabrielle Carteris, Gina Rodriguez, Halle Berry, Lupita Nyong'o, Mandy Moore, and Marisa Tomei.
