SAG Awards Rescheduled to Avoid Conflict With Grammys 2021

The 2021 SAG Awards are moving again amid the pandemic.

The 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards has been rescheduled to April 4 following the announcement that the 2021 Grammy Awards moved to the previously scheduled date of March 14, Variety reported Wednesday (January 13).

The show, which honors outstanding film and TV performances, will be broadcast on TNT and TBS at 9 p.m. ET.

The SAG Awards issued a statement after the Grammys originally rescheduled to the same date in March.

“We are extremely disappointed to hear of the conflicting date, March 14th, announced today for this year’s Grammy Awards telecast. We announced the same date for the SAG Awards last July with the intent to give the greatest possible scheduling consideration for other awards shows. We expect the same consideration from sister organizations throughout the industry,” they said at the time.

“The SAG Awards recognizes outstanding acting performances over the past year. We will again put on a spectacular show that accomplishes that mission. Our two organizations, SAG-AFTRA and the Recording Academy, share members and work together effectively to advocate for artists in many areas. In an environment that is increasingly challenging for televised awards programs, we also have a mutual interest in successfully showcasing the artistry and talent of our respective memberships. We are in contact with the Recording Academy and will continue to work with our sister organizations to find ways to make this year’s awards season as successful as possible.”

The SAG Awards also extended this year’s eligibility period by two months, including works exhibited or broadcast between January 1, 2020 and Feb. 28, 2021. Nominations will be announced on February 4.
