How to Watch the 2023 SAG Awards Live

The ceremony won’t be on TV this year

The 2023 awards season is nearly to the finish line, and it’s now time to say hello to the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards. 

From “White Lotus” to “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” Hollywood’s biggest actors from TV series and films of the year will go head-to-head. And for the first time ever, the telecast will be via Netflix (kind of — officially, Netflix won’t host the SAG Awards livestream until next year). Hosting the event is part of the streamer’s move into live programming, as the streamer has been developing its own livestream technology, which will officially launch with Chris Rock’s comedy special “Selective Outrage.”

Like the Globes, the SAG Awards recognize projects in both TV and film, and the titles are voted on by all SAG-AFTRA members who are in good standing and have paid their November dues by their respective due deadlines.  

For film, “Babylon,” “The Banshees of Inisherin,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” “The Fablemans” and “Women Talking” are all up for Best Motion Picture Cast. In the TV categories, Emily Blunt (“The English”), Jessica Chastain (“George & Tammy”), Julia Garner (“Inventing Anna”), Niecy Nash (“Dahmer”) and Amanda Seyfried (“The Dropout”) are all included in the running for Best Female Actor in a TV movie or Miniseries. 

Steve Carell (“The Patient”), Taron Egerton (“Blackbird”), Sam Elliot (“1883”), Paul Walter Hauser (“Blackbird”) and Evan Peters (“Dahmer”) are competing for Best Male Actor in a TV movie or Miniseries. 

But unlike past years, you won’t find the SAG Awards on TV this year. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the Screen Actors Guild awards live.
