Here’s When the 2025 SAG Awards Are Happening & All the Key Dates

The 31st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be held on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2025. The two-hour ceremony will stream live coast-to-coast on Netflix at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. This will mark the show’s second consecutive year streaming live on Netflix.


The SAG Awards annually celebrates the year’s outstanding motion picture and television performances. Voted on by SAG-AFTRA’s membership of 119,000-plus performers, the SAG Awards has the largest voting body on the awards circuit.

The SAG Awards have proven to be a solid – but not infallible – Oscar indicator. At this year’s SAG Awards, the trophies for film acting went to Cillian Murphy for Oppenheimer, Lily Gladstone for Killers of the Flower Moon, Robert Downey Jr. for Oppenheimer and Da’vine Joy Randolph for The Holdovers. All but one repeated those wins at the Oscars. (The exception was Gladstone, who lost at the Oscars to Emma Stone for Poor Things.)

The SAG Awards give their members ample time – more than five weeks – to vote in the final round. Voting is set to open on Wednesday, Jan. 15, and to close on Friday, Feb. 21 – just two days before the awards are announced. This timetable ensures that the voting is fresh and up-to-the-minute. At some other awards shows, voting closes a full month before the awards are announced.

Eligible performances must air or premiere between Jan. 1, 2024, and Dec. 31, 2024. All submissions must be submitted online via the SAG Awards’ website.
