Award season has arrived! The nominees for the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards are set to be announced today, Thursday, Feb. 4—and E! News has all the details on how to watch the nominations.
While the 2021 SAG Awards ceremony was originally scheduled for March 14, they'll now take place on April 4 to avoid a conflict with the 2021 Grammys. So, with two months to go until the award show, which honors actors both on TV and in films, the Screen Actors Guild is taking a very modern approach with their nominations announcement.
When are the 2021 SAG Awards nominations announced and where can you watch?
This year, the nominees for the SAG Awards will be announced on Instagram Live via the @sagawards account. "The SAG Awards is utilizing the innovation that social media channels like Instagram have achieved in providing an accessible platform for people to share their stories and stay up-to-date with current events," a press release for the ceremony states. "SAG Awards' aim is to create an authentic connection with their audience by reinventing the Nominations Announcement into a seamless, virtual experience for both the nominees and fans."
Start times: The nominations ceremony will kick off on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 7:50 a.m. PT/10:50 a.m. ET on @sagawards' Instagram Stories with an introduction by SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. Then, at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET, nominations will be announced on @sagawards' Instagram Live.
Who will be presenting the 2021 SAG Awards nominations?
Emily in Paris actress Lily Collins and Snowpiercer star Daveed Diggs will help announce the nominees for the SAG Awards. The stunt honors will be announced by SAG Awards Committee members Jason George (Station 19) and Elizabeth McLaughlin (Grand Hotel).
Who are the front-runners for the 2021 SAG Awards?
If the 2021 Golden Globe Awards nominations are any indication, Viola Davis might be on her way to another SAG Award nomination for her work in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Davis' late co-star Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in August 2020, is also likely to receive a posthumous nomination for his incredible work in the film. Alongside Davis, Vanessa Kirby is a frontrunner to receive a nod for her role in Pieces of a Woman. While Carey Mulligan is also likely to be recognized for Promising Young Woman.
