This year’s SAG Awards 2021 looked different from last year’s star-studded in-person show. This year they opted for a one-hour presentation, which was much more watchable than all other lock-down era award shows. There were still a lot of stars. Many were pre-taped in chats about their favorite shows and movies. The presenters offered compliments to the nominees as they read the names with winners hearing the announcements over video calls. Because of the short run time, the show was not over-inflated with bad jokes or host schtick. This format could be the template for the 2021 award shows if they don’t mind downsizing.

The winners of the night felt the right choices. The SAG Awards are usually the best indicator of who will take home Oscars as many of the same people vote for both awards. For the ensemble awards, The Trial of the Chicago 7 was the big winner, but the film didn’t receive any individual awards. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom took home two awards for Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman making both the front-runners in the Oscar race.

Though this year was all about TV. Even the movie stars cared more about their favorite shows when talking about what they are watching. Schitt’s Creek‘s final season won them the best ensemble in a comedy award, which was a very competitive category this year. The drama ensemble went to The Crown, which was one of the most talked-about shows of the year.
