After 25 years, the TNets are consciously uncoupling from the Screen Actors Guild. TNT and TBS will no longer air the SAG Awards. (The kudoscast had aired on TNT since 1998, while sister network TBS began simulcasting the event in 2007.)
The ceremony, held Sunday at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., and broadcast on both TNT and TBS, was notably border-breaking, with historic wins for deaf actors, Korean stars and some of Hollywood’s biggest names.
Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony airing at 9 p.m. ET on TNT and TBS will be taped, bowing to the pandemic that has upended the entertainment industry’s awards season. For the SAG honors, the challenge became how to evoke the tradition of ceremonies past.
As usual, the SAG Awards manages to pick up what the Golden Globe nominations left off. In particular, the biggest mistake the mostly solid Globes nods made this year, in missing the boat on Michaela Coel’s stunning, heartbreaking HBO series I May Destroy You. Coel landed a first-ever SAG Award nom in the female actor in a TV movie or limited series category for playing Arabella in I May Destroy You,
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Screen Actors Guild Awards will not share the same air date as the Grammys after all.

Alda, 83, best known by far for his 11 seasons as Hawkeye Pierce on CBS’s M*A*S*H from 1972 to 1983, has continued to work despite a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, and said it’s a more vital time than ever to be acting, with its search “to see life through another person’s point of view.”
The Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won the first three awards handed out Sunday, sweeping the comedy series awards. It won best ensemble in a comedy series, as well as individual honors for Rachel Brosnahan and Tony Shalhoub, whose win was a surprise in a category that included Bill Hader (Barry) and Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method).
Netflix led the way among all networks and studios with this year’s SAG nominations, garnering 15 nods thanks to programming like GLOW, Ozark, Grace and Frankie and The Kominsky Method. Ozark was among the select group of titles to snare four nominations, along with A Star Is Born and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The NBC family drama overcame formidable non-broadcast competition, including streaming service Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which is seen by its admirers as a political parable for today and won multiple Emmys and Globes. This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown was honored as best TV drama series actor, becoming the first African-American to win in the category. Julia Louis-Dreyfus captured her third SAG award for her role as a failed politician in HBO’s Veep, which was honored for best comedy series cast.
Stranger Things, Netflix’s supernatural thriller that earned breakout buzz in its freshman season, deprived three-time consecutive winner Downton Abbey of one last trophy for its concluding year. The streaming service claimed a leading four awards as the traditional broadcast networks were shut out, something they’re getting used to.
The 2017 SAG Award nominees were announced Wednesday, and Netflix dominated in TV the television category with 17.
It was a brave new world for television contenders at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Year after year, the actors union has favored the familiar, crowning plenty of repeat winners. Perhaps reflecting the changes in the ever-expanding television landscape, this time out SAG voters bestowed their love on newcomers. Three of the four TV acting winners at the 21st annual awards were first-time nominees in their category
Once again, Screen Actors Guild voters have proved their loyalty to actors they’ve nominated time and again. At least SAG voters acknowledged Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, after ignoring it last time around. SAG also heaped love on Netflix’s other big show, House of Cards, giving it first-time noms in the drama field and in the best actress category for Robin Wright, as well as a nom for star Kevin Spacey for the second year running.
Better late than never with Homeland, and voters finally found FX with their remotes, but where are Girls, House of Lies and The Walking Dead?
On the television side, comedy series awards went to Modern Family for best ensemble; Alec Baldwin for best actor for 30 Rock; and Betty White for best actress for Hot in Cleveland. Boardwalk took best drama and Mary Tyler Moore received the guild’s lifetime-achievement award.
Nominations for the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Wednesday morning, and ABC’s lovable Modern Family bested all comers with a total of five nods, including Outstanding Comedy Ensemble. Dexter and 30 Rock followed with three nominations each.
Are people finally falling out of love with Mad Men? For the second time in two weeks, the AMC show, which has had a lock on virtually every major drama award for the past three years, was beaten by HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
If even the most optimistic merger scenarios come true, then by the end of 2011 and just in time for the 18th SAG Awards, Hollywood may have a single actors union that would replace SAG and AFTRA. And therefore a newly conceived awards show for the combined actors’ union.
On the small screen, highly-rated sitcoms and their stars ruled the SAG noms. Sofia Vergara, Tina Fey, Edie Falco, Jane Lynch and Betty White are up for Best Actress, while 30 Rock, Glee, Hot in Cleveland, Modern Family and The Office are contenders in the Best Ensemble comedy category.
