Tonight's SAG Awards only game in town

Joel D. Amos is a Los Angeles-based writer, and the Senior Entertainment Editor here at SheKnows. He has interviewed numerous celebrities, including Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Katherine Heigl, Rachel McAdams, Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaw...

For fans of all things Hollywood-award season, tonight's your night. With the Golden Globes cancelled and the Oscars on the verge of being scrapped because of the ongoing writer's strike, there is one award show that will have both the red and gold that should accompany any award show evening.

The SAG Awards, presented by the actor's union, the Screen Actor's Guild, will be handed out in a few hours in Los Angeles, complete with red carpet arrivals and fashionistas running commentaries as to who is wearing what and why!

Then, after the rare moment of glamour this year with the red carpet, the statues are handed out. To keep track of how your favorite films, television shows and stars fare, SheKnows has included the nominees list below. Print it out and follow along with an award show that could likely serve as the only awards that matter for Hollywood in 2008.

The celebrities hit the red carpet covered by E! at 6 p.m. with the broadcast on TBS and TNT commencing at 8 p.m. Watch for coverage of the winners and photos from the parties later this evening on SheKnows Entertainment.
