The Screen Actors Guild Awards® celebrated the outstanding motion picture and television performances of 2020* at the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which aired Sunday, April 4, 2021 on TNT and TBS.
Honored with individual awards were Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Daniel Kaluuya and Yuh-Jung Youn for performances in motion pictures, and Mark Ruffalo, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jason Bateman, Gillian Anderson, Jason Sudeikis and Catherine O'Hara for performances in television.

SAG Awards Producers Jason George and JoBeth Williams revealed the honorees for outstanding action performances during the official live pre-show PEOPLE, Entertainment Weekly & TNT: Screen Actors Guild Awards Pre-Show. The stunt ensemble from "Wonder Woman 1984" was honored for film and the stunt ensemble from "The Mandalorian" was honored for television.
*SAG Awards Eligibility Period: January 1, 2020 – February 28, 2021
This year's SAG Awards was a one-hour celebration that highlighted and expanded on the show's signature "I Am An Actor" stories through funny and intimate docuseries-inspired interviews, which were woven throughout the telecast. The SAG Awards unique take on awards season included an upbeat montage recognizing this year's nominees' outstanding performances, and an "In Memoriam" tribute presented by Viola Davis honoring the union members lost since last year's gathering.
Since their creation in 1995, the SAG Awards have benefitted the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. This past year, the SAG-AFTRA Foundation raised and granted over $6.5 million in disaster relief to more than 7,000 SAG-AFTRA artists and families in urgent need of emergency assistance due to COVID-19 and the industry shutdown.
Nominees are chosen by their respective SAG Awards film and television nominating committees and were announced on February 4, 2021. Two nominating panels — one for television and one for film — each composed of 2,500 randomly selected union members from across the United States, chose this year's nominees. Final voting was open to 129,500 SAG-AFTRA members in good standing. Balloting closed at noon on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 and results were managed by Integrity Voting Systems, the Awards' official election firm.
