SAG Awards 2017: And The Nominees Are…

As you all know, we are in the midst of the so-called “awards season” here in the US. And after that memorable Golden Globes Awards, you know that the next ones would even be more exciting. That’s why I just can’t wait for the Grammy’s, Emmy’s, and, last but not least, the Oscars. But of course, before we get to the grand finale, there’s still something to look forward to in the next couple of hours—the SAG Awards.

The SAG Awards or the Screen Actors Guild Awards, as the name implies, is an accolade for actors by the SAG-AFTRA or the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Arts. This awards ceremony actually gives recognition to both artists from films as well as to artists from TV, which means that it’s sort of a combination of Emmy’s (TV) and Oscars (films). So who can we expect to shine in this year’s SAG Awards? Here are the nominees:
