SAG Awards 2022: Nominees, Ambassadors, Host – House of Gucci and The Power of the Dog lead the 2022 SAG nominees on the movie side, while Succession, The Morning Show and Ted Lasso are among the top SAG nominees on the television side.
Unlike the Oscars, the SAG Awards will not have a host this year and the show is expected to use different actors to introduce each segment and award. Actors Alexandra Daddario and Ross Butler, meantime, have been named Ambassadors for the 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, and both Daddario and Butler will present on the show, and provide viewers with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the ceremony on social media.
The Screen Actors Guild says the Daddario and Butler were chosen based in the way they exemplify the utmost values of the profession and are positive role models for the next generation of performers.
The SAG Awards are expected to open with a performance from Hamilton stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Daveed Diggs, and Leslie Odom Jr. Helen Mirren, meantime, is set to receive the 57th annual Lifetime Achievement Award.
