The SAG Awards are back! Known as the Screen Actors Guild Awards, it is the second of the major guild ceremonies coming the day after the Producers Guild’s Awards.The SAG Awards are the only televised ceremony that honors performers exclusively. Voted on by members of the Screen Actors Guild, the statuettes — called Actors — are awarded in 15 categories (including two for stunt work) across film and television. So who will be the host? In the past, this ceremony had no one to host or warm up the crowd. However, it is subjected to change this year! Last month, the Guild announced that Kristen Bell will serve as the very first host in the history of the ceremony.
In another break from tradition, this year’s SAG Awards will feature exclusively female presenters. Typically, a male and female pair of stars hands out each award, but in a move “to salute our women,” as the show’s executive producer Kathy Connell told EW, they’re forgoing Y-chromosomes for the statuette presentations. Men will still take part in the ceremony, however, to introduce the films nominated for Best Ensemble — and, of course, as winners.
