Below is my 2023 SAG Awards Voting Ballot (or the 29th Annual). What do you think of how I voted? How did you vote? Please comment below.
Deadline to Vote
Friday, February 24, 2023, noon (PT) is the deadline to vote.
Many local branches have a viewing party to cheer on the nominees together.
Here is a sweet downloadable and printable Scorecard you can mark on during the show. I especially like how it differentiates between who you voted for and who actually won.
Watch at Home
This year, the Awards show will be livestreamed ONLY on Netflix’s YouTube channel on Sunday, February 26, 2023 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. This is signficant. For the past several years, the show was broadcast on TNT and TBS. It has already been announced that next year, the show will stream directly on Netflix itself (not their YouTube channel).
SAG Awards Digital Special Issue
The SAG Awards Digital Special Issue 2023 has lots of background interviews and behind the scenes stories.
Social Media Profiles
Be sure to follow the SAG Awards on social media sites.
In your posts, they also like you to use the hashtag #SAGAWARDS. I usually add #awards #union #actor.
History of the SAG Awards
Screen Actors Guild Awards (also known as SAG Awards) are accolades given by the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) to recognize outstanding performances in film and prime time television. The statuette given is a nude male figure holding both a mask of comedy and a mask of tragedy. The statue is called “The Actor”. It is 16 inches (41 cm) tall, weighs over 12 pounds (5.4 kg), is cast in solid bronze. The Actor is produced by the American Fine Arts Foundry in Burbank, California.
The Awards have been one of the major awards events in Hollywood since 1995. Nominations for the awards come from two committees: one for film and one for television each. The union numbers approximately 2100 members. Members are randomly selected each year from the full membership (165,000 as of 2012) available to vote for the winners. It is considered an indicator of success to the Academy Award. The Awards have been telecast since 1998 on TNT.In 2007 they began to be simulcast on TBS.
The inaugural SAG Awards aired live on February 25, 1995 from Universal Studios‘ Stage 12. The second Awards aired live from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, while subsequent awards have been held at the Shrine Auditorium. On December 4, 2017, the award show announced it would have its first host ever in its twenty-four year history. Actress Kristen Bell presided over the ceremony.
Thank you to all the Studios and Distributors that gave us access to view all the nominees. Hats Off to the SAG Awards team for ALL your hard work in making this happen!
