The SAG Awards are taking a “shorter is better” approach to this year’s ceremony, which will consist of a one-hour, pre-taped telecast, our sister site Variety reports.
The program — which will not have a host or even a set — will consist of a mix of winner announcements, comedy bits and the SAG Awards’ signature “I Am An Actor” mini-speeches from performers.
“We’re looking at trying to do a unique award ceremony in an hour and leave people saying, which they very rarely do [with an awards show], ‘Man, I wish we had more,” executive producer Todd Milliner tells Variety.
The show airs Sunday, April 4 at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT on TNT and TBS.
