La La Land
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are both nominated for a SAG Award in 2017 Summit Entertainment

It's that time again. The 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards are set to take place on Sunday 29 January. The annual event, which celebrates the best achievements in both television and films over the last 12 months, is the only awards that allows actors to vote for their peers. More than 110,000 members of the US SAG-AFTRA actors' and performers' union have their say.

Where is it?

The annual ceremony is returning to the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and will air live on E! and TNT.

Who is hosting?

Unlike the Oscars, the Sag awards has no host for the two-hour show. Despite a lack of wisecracks, or controversial monologues, from the likes of Ellen DeGeneres or Seth MacFarlane, attendees will be entertained with a number of star turns and performances.


Stars including Oscar winner Brie Larson, Bond girl Naomie Harris and rapper-turned-actor Common are expected to grace the stage to honour their fellow thespians.

Special mentions?

Nashville star Lily Tomlin takes home the Life Achievement honours at this year's awards. Jane Fonda and Dolly have been enlisted to present the coveted accolade.
