When Are 2017 SAG Awards? Who’s Nominated?
This year, the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards will take place in Los Angeles and feature some amazing actors.
The SAG awards have been called “the most underrated award ceremony in Hollywood”. Although not as popular as the Oscars or the Golden Globe, these awards are definitely worth watching. Actors from both film and television get acknowledged in the ceremony. Actors vote for other actors at the SAG awards, which makes them worth watching.
The SAG awards often predict who will win the Oscars – for example, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson took home best actor and best actress SAGs. A few weeks later, they received the same honors at the Oscars.
When Are 2017 SAG Awards?
They broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles this Sunday, Jan. 29 on both TBS and TNT. The award show kicks off at 8 p.m. ET and typically lasts about two hours.
Who Is Nominated?
Golden Globes winners Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Ryan Gosling (La La Land) are in the lead for best actor, while Emma Stone (La La Land) and Natalie Portman (Jackie) are major contenders for the best actress.
Stranger Things and The People v. O.J. Simpson are among the contestants for the best TV show category.
Frontrunners for best films are Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea. This is surprising, given that La La Land won the category at the Golden Globes and is expected to do so at the Oscars.
