The 27th SAG Awards will be changing dates again.
This installment of the annual celebration of actors by the world’s largest union of actors was already postponed once, due to the pandemic. Now, it is being pushed back even further — to Sunday, April 4 — because the 63rd Grammys was delayed on Tuesday, due to the recent Los Angeles-area COVID surge, until 8pm ET on Sunday, March 14, the very date and time that had previously been claimed by the SAG Awards.
The event will become a one-hour special that will simulcast on TNT and TBS on April 4 at 9 p.m. ET. Nominations will be announced Feb. 4.
“Throughout these challenging times, our industry and our union members have proven their creativity and resilience in discovering new methods of storytelling while adapting to new safety protocols and procedures,” reads a statement with the date announcement. “We embrace that spirit as we re-imagine the SAG Awards with a one-hour special that highlights and expands on our signature I am an Actor opening and honors the outstanding performances of the past year.”
