Submissions for 24th SAG Award consideration open July 10

Submissions for nomination consideration for the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will open on Monday, July 10, 2017, at sagawards.org/submissions. With the actor's permission, producers, studios/networks, agents, managers, or publicists may submit a performance from 2017 for consideration in a category of the actor's choosing. Actors may also submit their own performances. Submissions may only be made online and will close on Monday, Oct. 23.

Nominating committees to be chosen on March 13

Of the top industry honors presented to actors, only the SAG Awards are selected entirely by performers' peers in SAG-AFTRA. Potential members of this year's separate film and television nominating committees - now grown to 2500 members each - will be randomly drawn on March 13, 2017, and are required to opt-in by April 14. SAG-AFTRA actor/performers, singers, dancers or stunt performers from around the country who have not served on the same nominating committee in the past eight years and who paid their November 2016 membership dues by Feb. 24, 2017, will be eligible.

The SAG Awards was the first televised awards show to acknowledge the work of union members and the first to present awards to motion picture casts and television ensembles.

Nominations voting will close on Sunday, Dec. 10, 2017, at 5 p.m. PT. Nominations will be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 13th.
