The 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards, honoring outstanding performances in television and film, are set to take place on Sunday, February 26, at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles. The event will be available for streaming on Netflix’s YouTube channel at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
SAG-AFTRA’s more than 122,000 members will cast their votes to determine the winners in 13 categories spanning both TV and film. Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” and Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once” lead the nominations, each securing five nods, including the prestigious Best Ensemble award. The Best Ensemble category is further populated by Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon,” Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans,” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking.” In the television realm, “Ozark” leads with four nominations, while “Barry,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Only Murders in the Building” each earned three nods.
In the competitive lead actress category, nominees Cate Blanchett (“Tár”), Viola Davis (“The Woman King”), Ana de Armas (“Blonde”), Danielle Deadwyler (“Till”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”) will vie for the top honor. Meanwhile, the lead actor competition features Austin Butler (“Elvis”), Colin Farrell (“The Banshees of Inisherin”), Brendan Fraser (“The Whale”), Bill Nighy (“Living”), and Adam Sandler (“Hustle”).
As a crucial precursor to the Academy Awards, the winners at the SAG Awards are expected to receive a significant boost in their Oscar prospects.
This year’s ceremony will feature presenters such as Yeoh, Farrell, Blunt, Chastain, Don Cheadle, Caleb McLaughlin, Paul Mescal, Ashley Park, Antonia Gentry, and Haley Lu Richardson.
The esteemed Sally Field (“Forrest Gump,” “Steel Magnolias,” “Lincoln”) will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Andrew Garfield, who shared the screen with Field in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” where she portrayed Aunt May, will present her with the accolade. Field, with nine SAG nominations and a win for outstanding performance in a drama series in 2009 for “Brothers & Sisters,” has left an indelible mark on her illustrious career.
