TVLine article: SAG awards get shorter, no return date for actions and extra

The SAG Awards take a “shorter, better” approach to this year’s ceremony, which will consist of a one-hour pre-recorded broadcast, our sister site Variety reports.

The program – which will have neither a host nor a set – consists of a mixture of winner announcements, comedy bits and the mini-speeches “I Am An Actor” signed by the SAG Awards by actors.

“We’re trying to have a unique awards show in an hour and have people say what they very rarely do [with an awards show]”Man, I wish we had more,” executive producer Todd Milliner told Variety.

The show will air on Sunday, April 4th at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on TNT and TBS.
