[ # ] Battle of the Awards Shows
January 6th, 2021 under Awards

The Grammys decided to move their awards show from January 31st to March 14th because of the rise in cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles. There is only one problem; the SAG Awards are also scheduled for that night. Needless to say, the Screen Actors Guild is not happy.

“We are extremely disappointed to hear of the conflicting date, March 14th, announced today for this year’s Grammy Awards telecast. We announced the same date for the SAG Awards last July with the intent to give the greatest possible scheduling consideration for other awards shows. We expect the same consideration from sister organizations throughout the industry.

“The SAG Awards recognizes outstanding acting performances over the past year. We will again put on a spectacular show that accomplishes that mission. Our two organizations, SAG-AFTRA and the Recording Academy share members and work together effectively to advocate for artists in many areas. In an environment that is increasingly challenging for televised awards programs, we also have a mutual interest in successfully showcasing the artistry and talent of our respective memberships. We are in contact with the Recording Academy and will continue to work with our sister organizations to find ways to make this year’s awards season as successful as possible.”

I don’t blame SAG. Even though one is for music and the other is for acting, they will still have conflicts. But then again, I hate award shows, so let them battle it out.
