After a pandemic era that disrupted major awards shows for multiple years, 2022’s award season is back in (mostly) full swing. Sunday’s Screen Actors Guid Awards promises to be a big television event this year after the Golden Globe Awards went without a televised ceremony in January.

While the SAG Awards will not feature a host this year, it will still be a star-studded event. Presenters include Benedict Cumberbatch, Jessica Chastain , Jung Ho-Yeon, Reese Witherspoon, Jeff Goldblum, Jesse Plemons, Lisa Kudrow, Kerry Washington, Jared Leto, Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The award ceremony is often seen as a predictor for the penultimate show in Awards Season, the Oscars, as actors make up the largest branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Streaming services are nominated for numerous awards this year with Netflix, HBO Max, and AppleTV+ leading the pack for productions like Squid Game, Hacks, and Coda.
