Screen Actors Guild Awards

The Screen Actors Guild Awards ("SAG Awards") are held annually to recognize outstanding members of television and film. Actors are nominated by members of a committee and then voted for only by members of the Screen Actors' Guild.

More so than other pre-Oscar awards, these "SAG Awards" are the best indicator of who will win an Academy Award: USA Today writes that the SAG Awards "thus are more predictive in the Oscar race than other high-profile awards shows, such as the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards."[1]

The award categories are:

  • Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
  • Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
  • Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
  • Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role
  • Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
  • Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
  • Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
  • Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
