Every year the Screen Actors Guild recognizes the best and brightest in the industry. The award recognizes those who have delivered amazing performances on screen released in the preceding year as well as prestigious lifetime achievement awards that have gone to industry darlings such as Morgan Freeman, Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. The date for the 2019 SAG awards is Sunday the 27th of January and entries for the SAG Awards 2019 tickets need to be submitted by January 1st 2019.
The tickets for the SAG awards are so hotly contested every year that the guild has opted for a lottery-style mode of allocating tickets. In order to get SAG awards 2019 tickets you must be a member of the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). SAG-AFTRA is a union organisation that represents those working in the cinematic and broadcast performing arts. You must be a paid member of the organisation to secure a place in the lottery and then if you are successful tickets cost $1000 per head. If you are successful you will be allocated two seats for the awards. The first draw for tickets will be offered on the 4th of January and subsequent offers will be made if these allocations fall through.
If you are successful in securing SAG awards 2019 tickets the event is set to be an amazing showcase of talent with the awards being in their 25th year. 2018 has been an amazing cinematic year with many iconic performances being eligible for recognition. Last year winners included Francis McDormand as the best female actor in a leading performance for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Allison Janney in best supporting female actor for her captivating performance in I, Tonya. Sam Rockwell was also recognized for his supporting role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and the cast was recognized for the strength of their collaborative performance.
Cinematic releases are not the only productions to be considered for nomination; television series are also considered for recognition.
