So, what can viewers expect? Well, they already know the winner of one of the categories. Helen Mirren is being honored with the prestigious SAG Life Achievement Award.

Dawson and Hudgens will also be on Instagram Live with the Dopesick star announcing the nominees on @sagawards and the High School Musical alum revealing the list on @vanessahudgens.

How are the nominees chosen? According to SAG-AFTRA, voting is done in two parts. First, is nominations balloting, which is voted on by two nominating committees: a motion pictures committee and a television committee. Per the organization, each committee consists of 2,500 randomly selected members, and the members are "newly selected each year" from SAG-AFTRA's database of paid and active members "who have not served previously in the past eight years." Next comes final balloting, which according to SAG-AFTRA, "begins after nominations are announced and is open to all paid-up and active SAG-AFTRA members."

When are the 2022 SAG Awards? The ceremony will be held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday, Feb. 27, and air live on TNT and TBS starting at 8:00 p.m. EST/5:00 p.m. PST.
