About the SAG Awards

The Screen Actors Guild Awards, hosted by SAG-AFTRA, is an annual award show that has become one of the most critical indicators for the Oscars. Four films have won the most SAG awards with three: 1999’s “American Beauty,” 2002’s “Chicago,” 2011’s “The Help” and 2017’s “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Likewise, three movies have been nominated for the most SAG awards with five: 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love,” “Chicago” and 2008’s “Doubt.”

For the television side of the group, the eligibility period doesn’t follow the same as the Television Academy. NBC’s “ER” has the most wins in this category, with four, which were all picked up consecutively. PBS’ “Downton Abbey” is close behind with three wins, two of which were back-to-back. The most nominated series is NBC’s “Law & Order” with nine followed by “ER,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “The Sopranos” with seven each.

  • The 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®, presented by SAG-AFTRA with Screen Actors Guild Awards, LLC, will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022, at 8 PM ET / 5 PM.
