Airdate: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Next Monday the Showcase Channel will air the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards live to air as they happen in Los Angeles.

The SAG Awards are peer-voted and considered a good hint of how the Oscars acting awards will unfold, given they too are voted by fellow actors.

The SAGs also include television awards for individual actors and ensembles.

Presenters at the ceremony will include William Shatner, Jon Hamm, Christina Applegate, Kyra Sedgwick and Eric McCormack.

A highlight of the ceremony will be the presentation of the Screen Actors Guild’s 45th Life Achievement Award to James Earl Jones.

Showtime will screen the event at Monday January 26 at 12.00 noon, which ties in well with the Australia Day public holiday. It is repeated at 9:30pm.
