The 26th Annual SAG Awards 2020 will air live this Sunday, January 19 at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CST on both TNT and TBS. The SAG Awards, which recognize outstanding performances in film and primetime television, will take place at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles this year.

“Lauded by critics for its style, simplicity and genuine warmth, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, presented by SAG-AFTRA, which made its debut in 1995, has become one of the industry’s most prized honors,” the SAG Awards website states. “The only televised awards ceremony to exclusively honor performers, it presents thirteen awards for the outstanding performances of the year in film and television in a fast moving two hour show which airs live on TNT and TBS.”

The description continues, “The awards focus on both individual performances as well as on the work of the entire ensemble of a drama series and comedy series, and the cast of a motion picture. These honors are fundamental to the spirit of the Screen Actors Guild Awards because they recognize what all actors know – that acting is a collaborative art.”

Here’s what you need to know about the 2020 SAG Awards, including the leading nominees and award categories:
