Debra Messing and Christina Applegate at the SAG Awards

This Sunday is the SAG awards and while we're excited that there (probably) won't be a strike any time soon we're even more excited to be covering the SAG awards from the red carpet to the winners. Follow our posts here on Sunday or this Twitter feed as we'll be taking photos and posting them from around 3:30pm Pacific until whenever the event wraps up.

James Earl Jones will be receiving a lifetime achievement award and it's generally regarded that the SAG award nominees list is a lot more reasonable and representative than the list the Oscars posted this week.

Tonight has some great late night options, Saturday looks awful (do you have any suggestions for Saturday?), and Sunday we have the SAG Awards
