SAG Awards: Post-Show Pre-Oscars Analysis

Three acting races are largely decided with one month to go until Oscars Sunday but CODA benefited with a SAG Awards win for Best Cast. The SAG nominees do differ from CCA, BAFTA, and the Oscars but the largest voting body has spoken.

27th SAG Awards: Screen Actors Guild Nominations

The 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards nominations were announced by Lilly Collins and Daveed Diggs on Instagram. The SAG Awards are one of the pre-cursors to focus on heading into the Oscar nominations announcement because they have the biggest overlap with the actors’ branch of the Academy.
