Members: Voting and viewing films for consideration

Final voting for the 22nd Annual SAG Awards will open Dec. 16th

General Voting Information

Voting for the Screen Actors Guild Awards® is done in two stages. The first, nominations balloting, is voted on by two nominating committees – one for Motion Pictures and one for Television. These nominating committees are selected at random by computer each year. The second stage of voting, the final balloting, begins once the nominations are announced on December 9th and includes all active members who pay their November 2015 dues by December 1st.

Final Balloting

Nominations for the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be announced in December. Final ballot information will be mailed to all eligible members on December 16th. In order to be eligible to vote and receive any 'for your consideration' (FYC) materials, members must be paid up (and any address changes made) by December 1st.

While online voting is standard, you may request a paper ballot by calling (800) 961-8287. Have your SAG-AFTRA member ID ready when calling. The deadline to request a paper ballot is Wednesday, January 13th.
