Submitting for the SAG Awards

The SAG Awards categorizes performances by individuals and casts/ensembles. The eligibility period is calendar year 2015. Submissions close Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 5pm.
We are again recognizing stunt performers. These honors commend work within the stunt community and include both stunt performers and coordinators in film and series programming. The recipients will be announced from the red carpet just prior to the SAG Awards telecast Saturday, January 30, 2015.
Who Can Submit
With the actor’s permission, producers, studios/networks, agents, managers, or publicists may submit performances for consideration in the category designated by the actor. Actors may of course submit their own performances.
