Branding & Nomenclature

Body: 

Please note: Screen Actors Guild Awards®, SAG Awards®, The Actor® name and statuette, and the phrase “I Am an Actor™” are legally protected against unauthorized uses and infringements.

  • The name of the event is the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®. The only acceptable nicknames are the Screen Actors Guild Awards® or the SAG Awards®. It is NEVER acceptable nor correct to call it the SAGs or the awards-giving body only as SAG.
  • The official hashtag is #SAGAwards.
  • The name of the statuette presented to the honorees is The Actor®.
  • SAG-AFTRA’s highest accolade is the Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment. It is NOT called the Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Remember: The performers union that presents the Screen Actors Guild Awards is SAG-AFTRA. Since the merger of Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists in 2012, SAG as a stand-alone entity ceased to exist.
