The 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards will be held on Sunday, February 27, 2022 and return to a live, two-hour televised ceremony. Nominations for the 28th SAG Awards will be announced on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.
After the ongoing coronavirus pandemic upended awards shows and how they were presented all season, the Screen Actors Guild will be simulcast live on both TNT and TBS at 8pm ET on February 27 after a year that consisted of pre-recorded winners and a short, one-hour show.
Today’s announcement also revealed several key deadlines and dates for next year’s show, including submissions for nomination consideration opening on Monday, August 30, 2021, and closing Friday, November 5, 2021. The eligibility window of airdate or premiere is between March 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021 after nearly all awards bodies followed suit with the Oscars and moved 2020 eligibility two months into 2021.
Notes the SAG Awards: “With the actor’s permission, producers, studios/networks, agents, managers, or publicists may submit a performance for consideration in a category of the actor’s choosing. Actors may also submit their own performances.” All submissions must be submitted online at sagawards.org/submissions.
