Award season is in high gear and now that we’ve celebrated the best in television and film with the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice, next in line will be the 25th Annual Screen Actors’ Guild Awards (SAG Awards) that will air on TBS and TNT on January 27, 2019. Megan Mullally will host and Alan Alda will receive the life achievement award.
This is the silver anniversary for the SAG Awards and there are several special events taking place. The SAG Awards Red Carpet premiere will live stream on affiliate outlets (including People) beginning at 2:30 p.m. PT. The actual SAG Awards show will air at 8 p.m. ET.
The SAG Awards will air on both TBN and TBS at the same time on television stations, mobile devices, and streaming products such as ROKU, Amazon Fire, and Apple TV. Members of the military forces can watch the awards on the American Forces Network.
