The 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be announced this year with a special emphasis on Instagram Live.
The stars of tomorrow will be revealed this Wednesday at the 2018 SAG Awards! This year’s event celebrates outstanding action performances on film and television, with nominees announced during an Instagram Story from Rosario Dawson (Dopesick) or Vanessa Hudgens’ Tick Tock…Boom!. President Fran Drescher gives a welcoming introduction beginning around 6:50 am PT while committee members Jason George & Elizabeth McLaughlin reveal the winners before the 7 am mark–and then it’s time for you guys to take over social media with your favorite #SAGAFTRA hashtags so we can find out who deserves those awards more than ever.
Last year, the SAG Awards nominations aired on social media for a second time with Lily Collins (“Emily in Paris”) and Daveed Diggs from Snowpiercer announcing them.
Recent events have shown that this virus is not going away anytime soon, which means the entertainment industry needs to take precautions. The Grammy Awards postponed their show indefinitely and it’s possible they might move from the CryptoCom arena because of COVID-related concerns like other awards shows doing so thus far in light of new information about how dangerous these viruses can be without proper protection
The ceremony’s Instagram plans come amidst ongoing COVID-related worries as other festivals cancel or postpone physically programmed programming such as the Sundance Film Festival where IATP President Grant Large announced a shift towards virtual gigs following last month’s surge of omicron variant infections at the Hollywood cinema complex(1).
This year, the SAG Awards announced that their nominations will be revealed on Instagram Live. They say it’s “a seamless and virtual experience for both nominees and fans.”
The Variety Film Awards Editor Clayton Davis predicted that Kristen Stewart, Olivia Colman, and Halle Berry would be nominees for best performance by a female actor in a leading film role. Jessica Chastain is also predicted to receive an award this year alongside other talented ladies at the 31st Annual ceremony which will take place on Saturday night!
The men are not being left out either with predictions stating Will Smith could win Best Male Lead Performance while Benedict Cumberbatch might grab another Globe if he performs well enough during voting tonight. It looks like Davis was right on the money with his predictions! The casts from “CODA,” Belfast, “The Power Of The Dog”, ‘West Side Story’ and Don’t Look Up have all been recognized for their performance in this year’s movies.
The 28th SAG Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS at 5 p.m PT from The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Sunday, Feb 27th!
The show is set to air sometime after that with no specific date yet but keep your eyes peeled because we’ll let you know as soon it’s confirmed so make sure not to miss this one-of-a-kind event stalker across America are waiting eagerly for updates.
