SAG Awards, on Sunday 27!

The Screen Actors Guild Awards, made its debut in 1995, and has become one of the film 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 SAG

Screen Actors Guild is a Union composed by 125 thousand performers. Two thousand one hundred SAG members are selected at random to choose the nominees in the thirteen categories representing work in films and on television. After the nominees are announced, the entire membership body is allowed to vote for the winners.

On March 30, 2012, the union leadership announced that the SAG membership voted to merge with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) to create SAG-AFTRA.
