“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,” SAG-AFTRA said Wednesday in a statement. “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.”
The Grammys were recently pushed back to March 14. The SAG Awards had previously claimed that date.
SAG-AFTRA had said it was “extremely disappointed” that the Grammys moved to March 14 — but now it appears the larger union is being the bigger union.
