SAG Awards: What time does the show start, who will win, who hosts?

The 23rd annual edition of the Screen Actors Guild Awards begin at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 29. Awards in six film and nine TV categories will be handed out at the Shrine Auditorium during a two-hour ceremony that airs live nationwide on both TNT and TBS. Unlike other awards shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes, this one does not have a host, which helps it move along more swiftly.

We are predicting the winners of all 15 SAG Awards races. Our forecasts are based on a combination of five sets of predictions: Experts, who are journalists that write about the SAG Awards , Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year’s SAG Awards, the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ SAG winners, and thousands of total Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.

Dish the SAG Awards with Hollywood insiders in our notorious forum

We’re predicting that the Screen Actors Guild will spread the wealth on the film side. “Moonlight” is the only nominee expected to win multiple awards: Best Film Ensemble and Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali). Emma Stone (“La La Land”) has a very narrow advantage for Best Actress against Natalie Portman (“Jackie”). Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) faces a significant Best Actor challenge from Denzel Washington (“Fences”). Even Ali could potentially be upset by Dev Patel (“Lion”) or Jeff Bridges (“Hell or High Water”), especially after his surprise loss at the Golden Globes. The only lock looks like Viola Davis (“Fences”) for Best Supporting Actress.

On the TV side, we’re betting on four programs to tie with two wins apiece. “Game of Thrones” is favored to take Best TV Drama Ensemble for the very first time, defeating the defending champ “Downton Abbey,” which went off the air last year and is hoping for one last hurrah. “Thrones” is also projected to take Best TV Stunt Ensemble, which it has won for the last five years in a row, never losing. We think “The Crown” will win both individual acting drama prizes for John Lithgow as Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.

Veep” is also tipped to take two awards. We expect it will claim Best TV Comedy Ensemble for the first time and Best TV Comedy Actress (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) for the second. While there is no Ensemble award for long-form programs, FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson” is forecast to win twice anyway: Best Movie/Mini Actor (Courtney B. Vance) and Best Movie/Mini Actress (Sarah Paulson), which would continue the awards romp for the true crime drama, which also won nine Emmys, two Golden Globes, four Critics’ Choice Awards and three Television Critics Association Awards.
