SAD news about the SAG Awards.
Deadline has learned that TNT, TBS and NBC have decided not to air the Screen Actors Guild Awards. This decision comes after almost 25 years. TNT has carried the award ceremony since 1998, when it began its long history on NBC.
TNT’s decision to drop the Long Angeles-based awards show—which is considered one of Hollywood’s biggest nights—follows Discovery’s April merger with WarnerMedia. This year’s SAG ceremony also marked the last for executive producer Kathy ConnellShe was the show’s producer since its inception. She will be succeeded by Jon Brockett.
SAG Awards are currently in negotiations with Warner Bros. SAG-AFTRA stated in a statement that Discovery and other broadcasters are being considered for the broadcast rights. We are looking at multiple options.
There’s no reason to be afraid.
The statement said that “Engaging with negotiations for broadcast is not uncommon and has happened several times in the history of SAG Awards.” This is not a different. “This is the same way that these discussions are conducted, and they will not take place in public. “We have not made any further comments at the moment.”
