TNT Takes You Inside the SAG Awards with The Red Carpet Show
The Red Carpet Show will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. (ET)/3:30 p.m. (PT) by a live, one-hour TNT.tv and TBS.com webcast on the red carpet. In addition, the recipients of this year's Stunt Ensemble honors will be announced during the live webcast by SAG Awards Committee members JoBeth Williams and Scott Bakula.
Of the top industry honors presented to performers, only the Screen Actors Guild Awards are voted on solely by actors' peers. The SAG Awards was the first televised awards show created by a union to honor the work of actors and the first to present ensemble and cast awards. The SAG Awards nominees are chosen by separate film and television nominating committees, each consisting of 2,100 SAG members from around the country, randomly selected anew each year.
The 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS Saturday, Jan. 23, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), 7 p.m. (CT) and 6 p.m. (MT), will be produced by Jeff Margolis Productions in association with Screen Actors Guild Awards, LLC. Jeff Margolis is the executive producer and director. Kathy Connell is the producer. JoBeth Williams, Daryl Anderson, Scott Bakula, Shelley Fabares and Paul Napier are producers for SAG. Gloria Fujita O'Brien and Mick McCullough are supervising producers. Benn Fleishman is executive in charge of production. More information is available online at SAGAwards.org.
Screen Actors Guild is the nation's largest labor union representing working actors. Established in 1933, SAG has a rich history in the American labor movement, from standing up to studios to break long-term engagement contracts in the 1940s to fighting for artists' rights amid the digital revolution sweeping the entertainment industry in the 21st century. With 20 branches nationwide, SAG represents more than 120,000 actors who work in film and digital motion pictures and television programs, commercials, video games, industrials, Internet and all new media formats. The Guild exists to enhance actors' working conditions, compensation and benefits and to be a powerful, unified voice on behalf of artists' rights. Headquartered in Los Angeles, SAG is a proud affiliate of the AFL-CIO. More information is available online at SAG.org.
