SAG Awards

Last week, the Grammys moved their show from January 31st to March 14th because of the dangerous spread of COVID-19 in Los Angeles. The latter date was the same as the SAG Awards. I say was because today the Screen Actors Guild announced that their show will now take place on April 4th on TBS and TNT.

SAG said in the press release, “Throughout these challenging times, our industry and our union members have proven their creativity and resilience in discovering new methods of storytelling while adapting to new safety protocols and procedures. We embrace that spirit as we re-imagine the SAG Awards with a one-hour special that highlights and expands on our signature I am an Actor opening and honors the outstanding performances of the past year.”

Personally, I say we should skip awards season this year. But then again, I say that every year.


Battle of the Awards Shows

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.


The Grammys have been postponed

The Grammys were supposed to take place on January 31st in Los Angeles, but they have been postponed because COVID-19 is so rampant in the city. Therefore, CBS and the Recording Academy have decided for everyone’s safety; it is best to wait. Variety is reporting that they might move it to March.

Personally, I know they want to hold it, but I think they can skip a year. Make it even bigger in 2022. If we make it to 2022.

I wonder if the other award shows will also postpone their big nights. They should.

UPDATE: The Grammys have officially been postponed.

Here is the statement from the Grammys and CBS, “After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling ‘The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards®’ to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021. The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show.”


The Weeknd goes all Trump because he didn’t get a Grammy nom

The Weeknd spent today with the Blinding Lights on him, expecting for his name to be called during the Grammy nominations. However, his smile turned into a frown when he didn’t get any noms.

“The Grammys remain corrupt,” the singer said. “You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency.”

Personally, I think he is completely overrated, and he needs to get over himself. After all, he might be taught a lesson in the very near future. That is because CBS airs the Grammys and the upcoming Super Bowl. They might not like his Instagram message and fire him the football game’s halftime show. I am sure the execs at CBS are not going to be happy with his statement.

Seriously, why does he deserve a Grammy over other people who didn’t get noms? There are so many artists and only so many categories. He just didn’t make the cut.


The Golden Globes takes over Oscars’ night

Awards season is going to look a lot different in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Tonys and the Grammys do not have a set night yet, the Oscars moved from February 28th to April 25th, and now the Golden Globes has a new date. It is going to be on Oscars’ old night.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed that Tina Few and Amy Poehler are still hosting the big night. If they will be doing it in front of a live studio audience, that is still an unknown. But who cares TinAmy are back where they belong.
