FYC Campaign Guidelines
Voting for the Screen Actors Guild Awards® is done in two stages. The first, nominations balloting also known as ‘pre-nom,’ is voted on by two Nominating Committees – one for Motion Pictures and one for Television. These Nominating Committees are newly selected every year and each made up of 2500 randomly selected paid-up and active SAG-AFTRA members who have not served previously in the past 8 years.
The second stage, final voting, begins after nominations are announced. All SAG-AFTRA members who are active and paid-up by the designated dues deadline are eligible to vote in the final round.
In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in, Rules and Regulations are subject to change and SAG Awards reserves the right to make adjustments as necessary.
