The 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) will now take place on April 4th to avoid conflict with the Grammy Awards.
The move comes a week after the Recording Academy and CBS decided to postpone their Grammy ceremony to March 14th, a date that the SAG had already marked.
According to Variety, the SAG Awards will be broadcast on TNT and TBS and recognize the outstanding film and television appearances of the past year.
Several award shows, including the Oscars and Golden Globes television shows, have been delayed in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
This isn’t the first time the Grammys and SAG Awards have presented a planning conflict. In the 2020 awards season, the 26th annual SAG Awards originally scheduled for January 26th, has been postponed for one week to January 19th when the Grammy Awards were announced for the same date.
As the SAG Awards were postponed to a March date, the show extended this year’s funding period by two months, including works exhibited or broadcast between January 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021.
The nominations for the upcoming ceremony will be announced on February 4th.
The SAG Awards are honors from the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) for outstanding performance in film and prime-time television
