Mark your calendars for February 27, 2022 — because the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards (SAG) are making a triumphant return to being held in person.
The annual award show, which this year was aired as a completely pre-recorded event, will take place over a two-hour live event on the date originally reserved for the 94th Academy Awards. The Oscars will now take place on March 27, 2022.
While the rather subdued 2021 iteration of the event didn’t feature a host, a red carpet or even a set, the 2022 version is bound to make up for lost time with the type of glamour we typically look forward to seeing at Hollywood award shows.
Nominations for the 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, with Succession continuing to be celebrated, following its success at the untelevised Golden Globes.
The HBO drama is up for five noms at the 2022 SAG Awards, including for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series and nominations for Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong and Kieran Culkin in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series.
When it comes to the acting categories, Will Smith (King Richard), Lady Gaga (House of Gucci), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), Jeremy Strong (Succession) and Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show) are all in with chances to win, but many were surprised to learn that Kristen Stewart had been snubbed for her performance as Princess Diana in Spencer. The actor had been considered a front runner for her portrayal of Prince Charles’ late ex-wife.
The awards will be broadcast in the US on both TNT and TBS at 8pm EST, but Australian audiences should be able to access the live stream online through the network websites like in previous years.
