This year's SAG Awards was a one-hour celebration that highlighted and expanded on the show’s signature “I Am An Actor” stories through funny and intimate docuseries-inspired interviews, which were woven throughout the telecast. The SAG Awards unique take on awards season included an upbeat montage recognizing this year’s nominees’ outstanding performances, and an “In Memoriam” tribute presented by Viola Davis honoring the union members lost since last year’s gathering.
