For all those who have complained about the award shows and the glitches of the pandemic era ceremonies, you can be sure that the Screen Actors Guild Awards are doing things differently.
The 27 annual SAG Awards kicked off Sunday night with the express purpose of fighting the longest awards season bloat in recent memory with a one-hour pre-recorded affair.
The ceremony, which stands as the only awards ceremony voted in its entirety by actors, forgoes all the traditional adornments (no red carpet, no presenter, no set and definitely no afterparties) for a streamlined and safe COVID celebration of performances. film and television. During the past year.
Although the actual awards were handed out in Zoom-style sessions with the nominees days before the telecast (honored actors in all 13 categories were required to sign nondisclosure agreements prior to the shootings), the rest of us couldn’t find out who won until the acceptance speech broadcast Sunday night.
But that doesn’t make this year’s field any less competitive. “Minari,” which tells the story of a first-generation Korean-American family starting over in the rural areas of the South; “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” starring the late Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis; and Spike Lee’s soldier drama “Da 5 Bloods” lead the pack with three nominations each.
Since Best Picture Oscar winner “Nomadland” didn’t get a nod for the night’s top prize (Chloe Zhao’s film set is predominantly non-professional actors), the Outstanding Cast trophy is a game for everybody. Critically acclaimed black-directed films, including “Da 5 Bloods,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” and “One Night in Miami,” which were excluded from the Best Picture run at the Oscars, are competing for the award, along with “Minari” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” by Aaron Sorkin.
Meanwhile, Netflix’s “The Crown” and “Schitt’s Creek,” which posted a final victory lap after airing their much-lauded final season, topped the nominations among television honorees.
In addition to the winners’ announcements, the show will also feature their exclusive “I’m an actor” stories with “intimate interviews inspired by documentary series” woven throughout the broadcast.
