LOS ANGELES (October 21, 2013) – The deadline for consideration for nomination for this year’s Actors® is fast approaching. Submissions for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® must be filed by Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 at 5 p.m. (PT). Submissions may be submitted only online at sagawards.org/submissions .
The Screen Actors Guild Award—The Actor®—is presented for outstanding performances in motion pictures and primetime television. Actors may submit their own performances from 2013 for consideration in categories of the actor’s choosing. With the actor’s permission, producers, studios/networks, agents, managers, or publicists may also submit performances for consideration in the category designated by the actor.
Of the top industry honors presented to performers, only the Screen Actors Guild Awards are selected entirely by actors' union peers. The nominees for performances in 2013, including the distinctive ensemble awards and stunt ensemble honors, will be chosen by two separate film and television nominating panels, each comprised of approximately 2,200 members from across the United States, who were randomly selected this spring. Nomination ballots will be mailed on Wednesday, Nov. 20 and voting closes on Monday, Dec. 9.
