The 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS, will take place on Jan. 29, 2017, SAG Awards producer Kathy Connell announced Wednesday.

Submissions for nomination consideration will open July 11 at With the actor’s permission, producers, studios/networks, agents, managers or publicists may submit a performance from 2016 for consideration in a category of the actor’s choosing.
