LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Screen Actors Guild Awards will honor the best performances in film and television from the past year on Sunday night, but not without also tackling the ongoing sexual misconduct scandal in Hollywood and efforts to improve the industry’s treatment of women.
This year’s show will feature a mostly female roster of presenters and its first ever host with Kristen Bell.
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is the leading film nominee, including for its star Frances McDormand. The top television nominee is “Big Little Lies,” with three of its stars — Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern — all vying for best actress in the same category.
The show being held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles begins at 8 p.m. Eastern and will be broadcast on TNT and TBS.
