Award show season is upon us. Well, it has been for a little while, but for film and television, this is when it starts to get good. Nearly every weekend over the next month has a major awards show, which means dramatic (or not so dramatic) reveals, gorgeous gowns on the red carpet, and getting into your coziest clothes to watch every moment. This weekend, it's the 26th Screen Actors Guild Awards. Performers and creators from both film and television will gather to see who out of the stiff competition will walk away with an award.
The SAG Awards are unlike other award shows in one major way. Instead of thousands of voting members in an association or the Academy deciding the fates of films and shows, the winners are chosen by fellow actors, specifically members of the SAG-AFTRA guild. It is about actors recognizing fellow actors. This year, Leonardo DiCaprio will be presenting Robert De Niro with a Life Achievement Award. There were so many good films and TV series this year, some of which were shockingly left out of the nomination list, we don't know how actors are expected to choose.
Historically, it is also the most accurate predictor for the Academy Awards. Winners here will likely get the Oscar as well. So, if you want a peek at who will probably take home an Oscar, you won't want to miss the SAG Awards.
