Here's What You Need To Know About The SAG Awards Happening Tonight

Ah, awards season - where we wonder who will take out the best of the best for the past year's cinematic and silver screened endeavors. This year, the award will be presented to one of the most distinguished actors of our time, Morgan Freeman. The star of The Good Place is playing a role (host) that the SAG Awards do not often formally have, and with that we imagine that there is going to be a very interesting vibe and feel to the show this year. "And I said, 'Well, maybe for one night, the women will be more than 50-50 for two hours"'.

Red carpet: 5 to 7 p.m. CT on E!

The list of all-female presenters taking the stage includes Emma Stone, Halle Berry, Lupita Nyong'o, Dakota Fanning, Kelly Marie Tran, Olivia Munn, Niecy Nash, Gina Rodriguez and Maya Rudolph. SAG Award victor and Oscar victor Morgan Freeman will be conferred with the SAG Life Achievement Award. Subsequent shows have featured more varied fashion trends, but the emphasis has been on issues, not exclusively awards, during Hollywood's celebratory season.

The show comes two weeks after a black-dress protest at the Golden Globe Awards kept the emphasis on the treatment of women throughout society.


Leading the list of nominees on the film side is "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" with four bids. Rockwell is the favourite, having won the Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards for his performance as a bigoted police officer on the cusp of change.
