We got through the Golden Globes, and now it’s time for the SAG Awards. The ceremony is taking place this Sunday, January 25th at 8PM EST on TBS and TNT. So why should you tune in? Well, besides the reasons listed below, this is the award show where the actors get to vote for their peers. So when Matthew McConaughey walks away with the Best Male Actor in a Drama Series statue, he’ll know it’s because Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell and more of his friends voted for him. (Well, maybe not them specifically, but you get the idea.) Pretty sweet, huh? Okay now here are 7 more reasons to look out for at the 21st annual SAG Awards:
1) The presenters
The line up of presenters is seriously epic. There’s movie and TV nominees like, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Rashida Jones and Matt McGory, plus past winners like Bryan Cranston.
2) The winners
The Golden Globes splits up all the categories into drama and comedy. At the SAGs both genres are included in the movie categories. So it will be interesting to see who takes home the award, which will more clearly indicated who will win the Oscar. Will Eddie Redmayne or Michael Keaton win Best Actor? We’ll find out soon enough.
3) The Gyllenhaals
Okay, so can we just talk about how the Gyllenhaals were the poster kids for #siblinggoals at the Golden Globes?? Then when Maggie won and Jake looked the proudest? Well, they’ll be back again for the SAGs. Here’s hoping they both win this time so Jake gets as much screen time as possible.
4) The food
Wolfgang Puck, award-winning chef, is preparing the menu for the event. He’ll be serving kale salad, Moroccan spiced chicken, grilled salmon and handmade lavosh. So we’ll be drooling in front of our TVs while the celebs chow down.
5) Stunt ensemble award
We’re pretty sure this is the only show that recognizes best movie and TV stunts, which is pretty freakin’ cool. Those guys deserve more credit!
6) Maternity fashion
There are a few pregnant women making the award show rounds this year and so far, their maternity style has been on point. Keira Knightly and Sophie Hunter (Cumberbatch’s fiancee) rocked it out at the Golden Globes. We can’t wait to see what they wear to the SAGs and the rest of award season.
7) Lifetime achievement award
The award is going to Debbie Reynolds this year, who will be presented the statue by her daughter, Carrie Fisher. Rita Moreno took home the honor last year and she dropped an epic F-bomb during her acceptance speech. Debbie, you’re up!
