Plot Synopsis

Of the top industry honors presented to performers, only the SCREEN ACTOR GUILD (SAG) AWARDS are voted on solely by actors' peers in the Screen Actors Guild. Since the SAG AWARDS started in 1996, it was the first televised awards show created by a union to honor the work of actors and the first to present ensemble and cast awards. The SAG AWARDS nominees are chosen by separate film and television nominating committees, each consisting of 2,200 SAG members from around the country, randomly selected anew each year. All active members of Screen Actors Guild are eligible to vote for the final Actor recipients. The SAG AWARDS had no host until 2018, when Kristen Bell presided over that year's event and Megan Mullally hosted in 2019, but the event returned to having no host in 2020.
The 26th Annual SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS was simulcast live nationwide on TNT and TBS on Sunday, January 19, 2020 from 8-10pm ET/5-7pm PT from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. This year the event has no host.

Scheduled presenters include SAG-AFTRA president Gabrielle Carteris, the cast of PARASITE (Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-eun, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam and Lee Sun-kyun), and JOJO RABBIT stars (Roman Griffin Davis, Scarlett Johansson and Taika Waititi), as well as these celebrities (in alphabetical order): Jason Bateman, Millie Bobby Brown, Sterling K. Brown, Steve Buscemi, Gwendoline Christie, Glenn Close, Bruce Dern, Kaitlyn Dever, Daveed Diggs, Taron Egerton, Dakota Fanning, America Ferrera, Jennifer Garner, Danai Gurira, Tom Hanks, Jharrel Jerome, Nicole Kidman, Dan Levy, Eugene Levy, Lupita Nyong'o, Pedro Pascal, Margaret Qualley, Lili Reinhart, Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron, Sophie Turner, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
