Move over surgeons, rocket scientists, and seventh-grade guidance counselors, because Fame: The Musical said it best: “Acting is the hardest profession in the world.” That’s why we have an entire award show celebrating these people. Specifically, the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards, which celebrates acting accomplishments in both TV and film from 2022. Andrew Garfield will present 80 for Brady and The Flying Nun star Sally Field with the Lifetime Achievement honor at the Sunday ceremony. Here’s everything else you need to know before the show. Let’s get SAG-ning.
When can I watch, and how?
The 29th annual SAG Awards will be broadcast live on Netflix’s YouTube page (not Netflix itself) on February 26 at 8 p.m. ET from L.A.’s Fairmont Century Plaza. According to a press release, the ceremony will also be available “on several partner social channels as well as Twitter and Facebook.” If you’re interested in judging the red-carpet ‘fits, People and Entertainment Weekly’s pre-show will stream at 5:45 p.m. ET on People.com and EW.com, as well as the YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok pages of both outlets.
