Submissions for 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations are Now Open at sagawards.org/submissions

SAG Awards Nominees will be Announced on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015 and the SAG Awards Ceremonies will be Simulcast Live on TNT and TBS on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016

LOS ANGELES (July 6, 2015) – Submissions of performances for consideration for the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations are now open online at sagawards.org/submissions, it was announced today by SAG Awards Executive Producer Kathy Connell. Submissions will close on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015 at 5 p.m. (PST).

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are presented by SAG-AFTRA for outstanding individual and ensemble performances in motion pictures, television, cable and new media programs. With the actor’s permission, producers, studios/networks, agents, managers, or publicists may submit a performance from 2015 for consideration in a category of the actor’s choosing. Actors may also submit their own performances. Submissions may only be made online.

Nominees will be chosen by two separate film and television nominating panels, each comprised of over 2,200 SAG-AFTRA members from across the United States, who were randomly selected this spring. Nomination ballots will be mailed on Wednesday, Nov. 18 and nominations voting closes on Monday, Dec. 7.

Nominations for the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015.

Once nominees are selected, all SAG-AFTRA members in good standing —more than 111,000 performers—may cast votes to determine who will receive this year's coveted Actor statuettes. Final voting instructions will be mailed on Wednesday, Dec. 16. Online voting is encouraged. Final voting paper ballots are available only upon request between Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015 and Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016. Online votes must be cast or previously-requested paper ballots returned by Friday, Jan. 29 to Integrity Voting Systems, the SAG Awards election firm, where results will be sealed until they are opened onstage at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, Jan. 30. The ceremony will be simulcast live from the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. (ET), 7 p.m. (CT), 6 p.m. (MT) and 5 p.m. (PT).
