The 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards are approaching!

The upcoming ceremony presented by SAG-AFTRA, which recognizes and rewards the year's best performances in movies and television, will be held Sunday, Feb. 26, at Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

This year, Netflix will stream the awards show live on the platform's YouTube channel as part of a new partnership between SAG-AFTRA and Netflix. The ceremony will also be available on the streaming service's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

In 2024, the ceremony will stream live on Netflix itself around the globe rather than the service's YouTube channel, as the actors' union and Netflix announced before nominations for the upcoming ceremony were unveiled Jan. 11.

"We are thrilled to embark on this exciting new partnership with Netflix and we look forward to expanding the global audience for our show," SAG-AFTRA national executive director Duncan Crabtree-Ireland said in a January statement.

Added Crabtree-Ireland, "As the only televised awards program exclusively honoring the performances of actors, whose work is admired by millions of fans, the SAG Awards are a unique and cherished part of the entertainment universe."
