The 2021 SAG Awards are finally taking place on Sunday.

After COVID-19 delays – and being bumped by the Grammys – the 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards is dramatically changing course. Instead of its annual live show at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium, this year’s awards show will head into the stars’ homes for a pre-taped one-hour special. 

The SAG Awards will lean into its signature “I Am an Actor” declaration that has become a beloved show-opening staple. This year presenters and winners have been filmed at their homes giving humorous, often inspiring stories of becoming a working actor. 

The show will even kick off with a filmed locker room pep talk made for the SAG Awards by Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis).

Here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s reimagined SAG Awards.
