Tuning in for the SAG Awards?

Sagaward_lIf the WGA strike sends the Oscars the way of the Golden Globes, Sunday night’s 14th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (Sunday night  on TNT and TBS, 8 p.m. ET) could be your only true red carpet movie star event of the season. And the networks know it: TNT and TBS will be broadcasting red carpet shows online, beginning at 6:20 p.m. ET, while E! and TV Guide will have their usual cameras in place for the tube. (You can’t blame them: even the scheduled presenters list is impressive — Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, Tommy Lee Jones, Viggo Mortensen, and about 30 more movie and TV A-listers.)

As for EW.com’s coverage, we’ll have your winners’ list, of course, as well as Annie Barrett’s take on the night’s best and worst moments and Dave Karger’s analysis of how SAG’s movie winners’ list will affect the Oscar race. Tell us, PopWatchers: will you be watching?

    Yes. I will be watching. I agree that this may be our only awards show this year, so I am excited to watch it. But why is the show on two networks? I have always wondered that.

  • LP

    YES! I have to get my awards show/red carpet fix when and where I can this year…

  • krikky

    DAMN SKIPPY! I’ll be rootin’ for my man, DDL…

  • Antoinette

    To be honest I usually do not watch the SAG awards, but I fear this will be the only awards show we get this year so it has become a “must watch” in my house.

  • Roo

    Some of us losers out here don’t have cable, so I was really hoping that ew.com would be live-blogging it.

  • Tim

    I will be watching! Looking forward to a REAL awards show this season.

    I’m usually watching all of the awards shows, but this year I just don’t care. Since the strike I’ve canceled my cable; I just can’t justify paying $50 a month for reality shows and reruns. And movies are too expensive to see all of the good ones. What up, NY, charging $10 a ticket? I miss living in Western PA where it was only $6.50.

    damn right! I can’t wait. I only hope there’s not 4651265 speeches about the strike.

  • lola

    As long as there’s the slightest chance of Hugh Laurie turning up, I’ll be watching.

    I will definitely be watching!! As the only real awards show this season I am celebrating as though it were the Oscars. Sparkling wine and appetizers will be on my coffee table and I’ll be watching the entire pre-show. Cannot wait!

    I don’t understand all of this … if the SAG awards and the Grammy’s are happening, why not the Golden Globes and the Oscar’s? What makes them different from each other as it relates to the need for writers? Don’t they all have scripts?

  • Snarf

    WHAAAAAAT????! No Slezak live blogging mocking E!’s overly excitable yet dim-witted commentators? I am very, very dissapointed. :(

  • El

    To Anon — its not about the need for scripts, it’s about crossing a picket line. The SAG has been very supportive of the WGA throughout the strike, so the WGA is not picketing their awards. The reason the Golden Globes was canceled is that the WGA said they would picket it and most members of the SAG said they wouldn’t cross the picket line to attend. The networks ultimately canceled it because it would be boring to give out awards to an empty room without any famous presenters.
    As far as the Grammy’s, I’m not sure why they get a reprieve from the strike, but that’s not my call, I guess.

  • Matt

    I will definately be there. Good Luck 30 Rock! (Though I wouldn’t mind some Office wins…) http://pregnantcornbread.com

  • Tim

    I’m predicting an ensemble win for Hairspray.
