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.

Since its creation in 1995, the SAG Awards have benefitted the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. This past year, the SAG-AFTRA Foundation raised and granted over $6.5 million in disaster relief to more than 7,000 SAG-AFTRA artists and families in urgent need of emergency assistance due to COVID-19 and the industry shutdown.

The SAG Awards eligibility period was Jan. 1, 2020, through Feb. 28, 2021. Nominees are chosen by their respective SAG Awards film and television nominating committees and were announced on Feb. 4. Two nominating panels – one for television and one for film – each composed of 2,500 randomly selected union members from across the U.S., chose this year’s nominees. Final voting was open to 129,500 SAG-AFTRA members in good standing. Balloting closed at noon on Tuesday, March 30, and results were managed by Integrity Voting Systems, the awards' official election firm.
