2021 Oscars calendar: SAG Awards voting ends March 30, ceremony is April 4

The final voting for the SAG Awards ends on March 30. Nominations for the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on February 4 and balloting began on Feb. 16. The pre-taped SAG Awards ceremony airs on April 4. That is just 11 days before the academy starts canvassing its members for their final votes for the 2021 Oscars. That balloting period only runs for six days. The 93rd Academy Awards take place live on April 25.

This year, the guild predicted 16 of the 20 Oscar nominees for acting; last year, it foresaw 14 of the eventual contenders at the Academy Awards. In both 2018 and 2019, SAG had a batting average of .750 (15/20). In 2017 and 2015, it went 17 for 20 while in 2016 it previewed a lucky 13. And in both 2014 and 2013, the guild nominated 14 of the performers who went on to contend at the Academy Awards.
