All about the SAG Awards
What makes the Screen Actors Guild Awards a standout?
Amid the glitz and hype of Hollywood, an award by your peers is better than all the critics (the Critics Choice Awards), the foreign press (the Golden Globes) or ANYBODY in Tinsel Town (the Oscars.)
Welcome to the SAG Awards, in which the insular club of professional actors nominate each other for best performances of the year.
That said, the SAG Awards are generally the most predictive of who wins Hollywood's biggest prize come Oscar night - especially in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories.
