LOS ANGELES (Jan. 23, 2009) – Screen Actors Guild Awards® Committee Chair JoBeth Williams will join Screen Actors Guild President Alan Rosenberg to announce the recipients of Screen Actors Guild’s Honors for Outstanding Performances by Film and Television Stunt Ensembles from the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet at 6:15 pm ET / 3:15 pm PT on Sunday, Jan. 25, during the live SAG Awards pre-show webcasts at tnt.tv and tbs.com, executive producer and director Jeff Margolis announced today.

As a build-up to the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards presentation, TNT and TBS will present a special live webcast at tnt.tv and tbs.com, as well as through the TBS and TNT domains within the Kaneva virtual world. The webcast, which begins at 6:15 pm ET / 3:15 pm PT with the announcement of the Stunt Ensemble Honors recipients, will be hosted by “Entertainment Weekly’s” Dave Karger and comedian Ian Bagg, who recently hosted TBS’s LOL Lounge webcast from The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. Karger and Bagg will interview this year’s nominees, past winners and other attendees as they walk the red carpet on their way into the prestigious ceremony.

At 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, the live webcasts will shift backstage to the press and photo rooms, where this year’s SAG Awards honorees will answer questions from reporters and pose for pictures with their Actor® statuettes.

Screen Actors Guild Stunt Ensemble honors commend work within the stunt community during 2008 and recognize stunt performers and coordinators. Nominees chosen by their respective SAG Awards film and television nominating committees were announced on December 18, 2008. Recipients are being chosen by the more than 100,000 active members of Screen Actors Guild. Balloting closes Friday, Jan. 23, 2009 at noon PT. Results will be sealed by the Guild’s official election teller until they are announced on the SAG Awards® red carpet by Rosenberg and Williams.

Chair of the SAG Awards Committee and President of the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, JoBeth Williams gained first hand appreciation for the skill of stunt professionals in 1982 when she flew across a bedroom ceiling pursued by ghosts and swam in a muddy pool filled with skeletons as a terrified mom in the horror classic “Poltergeist,” then rescued a 3,000-pound bull from a burning barn as a small-town sheriff in the thriller “Endangered Species.”

The nominees for this year’s SAG Stunt Ensemble Honors are:
