SAG Awards 2019: The 25th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards—the SAG Awards, as they are affectionately called—airs this Sunday, January 27 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Hollywood’s brightest stars will be out Sunday night, for the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild awards.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards winners can diverge from other awards season kudos due to the sheer size of the org’s voting body. That often means using them as a bellwether for Oscar or Emmy glory can be difficult. Boasting around 160,000 members from across the country, voters frequently give the ensemble awards in TV and film to nominees with the largest, most accomplished casts, and have been known to gravitate toward crowd pleasers over critical acclaim.
But it’s still a good sign of what actors, who represent a large chunk of the Academy voting body, are thinking mid-way through the awards calendar. This will be the latest chance for Oscar contenders like “A Star is Born” (which leads all SAG nominations with four nods), “BlacKkKlansman” and “The Favourite” to earn some momentum on the film side. And in TV, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Ozark” lead all challengers, with four noms each.
Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, this year’s SAG Awards take place at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday, Jan. 27, and are the first major awards to be announced since Tuesday’s Academy Award nominations. Here are Variety‘s predictions on how each race might shake out.
