The Screen Actors Guild Awards are tonight, and we can already feel the excitement in the air! Unlike many other awards shows, the SAGs are peer-voted, meaning actors vote for their fellow actors in the 13 categories that will be presented. In anticipation of tonight's event, we broke down four reasons why we can't wait to tune in to the red carpet and show:
1. Matt McGorry (see above), from How to Get Away With Murder and Orange is the New Black, will be the official SAG Social Media Host. The actor will be posting live updates from the red carpet on his Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts. If you already follow him, you know his updates are bound to be hilarious.
2. We're hoping for some risky fashion. Unlike the Golden Globes and the Oscars, the SAG Awards are a much more laid-back affair, meaning that attendees like Reese Witherspoon, Keira Knightley, and Jennifer Aniston can take a chance and wear something a bit more avant-garde than your typical awards show gowns.
3. Speaking of Aniston, we're crossing our fingers that the red carpet pants trend from the Globes and Critics' Choice Awards will continue on the SAGs red carpet. Aniston, Emma Stone, and Lorde all skipped the typical party dresses in favor of fresh takes on the suit. Let's hear it for wearing the pants!
4. If you're getting ready to place your Oscar winner bets, there's a good chance the SAGs can help you out. The SAG Awards have long been a good predictor of who will take home the Oscar, and aside from a few nominees, like Aniston and Bradley Cooper, most of the SAG nominees are up for an Oscar as well.
Tune in tonight at 8/7 Central on TNT and TBS!
