SAG Awards 2021

If your weekend plans didn’t include watching the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, April 4, it’s not too late to take note of the biggest triumphs of the evening. As a reminder, the 27th annual event celebrated the most outstanding performances in television and film during 2020. In lieu of a real-life ceremony, the event was pre-recorded and held virtually. The normally two-hour-long event was shortened to just 60 minutes, which was equal parts efficient yet…short! By 10 pm EST, my wine glass was curiously still half-full.

Without giving too much away from this year’s COVID-19-adapted awards show, The CrownSchitt’s Creekand Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom are among the winners who took home not one but two trophies this year—proving these titles need to be added to your watch list ASAP. Ahead, GRAZIA USA put together a complete list of this year’s nominees and winners to ensure you’re in the know.
