SAG Awards to be held on April 4

The 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) will now be held on April 4 to avoid a confrontation with the Grammy Awards.

The move comes a week after the Recording Academy and CBS decided to move their Grammy ceremony to March 14, with SAG already marked.

According to Variety, the SAG Awards will be broadcast on TNT and TBS, and will recognize the film and TV performance of the year.

Several award shows, including the Oscar and Golden Globes telecasts, have been delayed in the wake of the coronovirus epidemic.

This is not the first time the Grammys and SAG Awards have had a scheduling conflict. In the 2020 award season, the 26th annual SAG Awards, originally scheduled for January 26, were moved for a week to January 19, when the Grammy Awards were announced for the same date.

As the SAG Awards were moved to a March date, the show extended this year’s eligibility period to two months, including works screened or broadcast between January 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021.

Nominations for the upcoming ceremony will be announced on 4 February.

The SAG Awards are 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.
