Will Smith, Denzel Washington, Jennifer Hudson And More Nominated For SAG Awards

Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens have announced the nominees for this year’s Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

SAG is the union television and film actors join to secure work and workplace protections. Their annual awards show allows designated committees of members to vote for one another’s talents. 

The nominees were revealed by Dawson and Hudgens on Instagram Live following a short statement from the union’s recently elected president Fran Drescher (The Nanny). Dawson and Hudgens announced nominees in thirteen categories pausing in between the names to show appreciation for the work of the actors.
