How to Watch the 2019 SAG Awards
You've got options.
Awards season wouldn’t be awards season without the Oscars or Grammys — they're two of the most coveted awards in Hollywood. But the Screen Actors Guild Awards, or SAG Awards, are kind of a big deal, too. After all, the SAG Awards — which first debuted in 1995 — are presented by the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), two unions that represent 160,000 performers, ranging from actors to journalists to dancers.
This year marks the 25th annual ceremony — which will be hosted by Will and Grace’s Megan Mullally — and will take place on Sunday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Want to tune in? Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the SAG Awards, including streaming options for your favorite devices.
If you are looking to go old school when watching the ceremony, then you’ll find the SAG Awards on TNT and TBS, according to the show’s website. You can also check out all of the red carpet action on both of the stations, starting at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT. As you watch the stars trickle in, you’ll also be able to see SAG Awards Ambassador Harry Shum Jr. (Crazy Rich Asians) and Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale) announce the honorees for Outstanding Action Performances by Film and Television Stunt Ensembles, the website noted.
