The awards show was originally set to take place Jan. 24, 2021.

The SAG Awards is delaying its ceremony date amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. 

The award show, which honors the best in film and television, will now take place Sunday, March 14, 2021. The 2021 SAG Awards was originally set for Jan. 24.

Along with the new date, eligibility requirements have been modified, with the eligibility window being extended by two months.

SAG Awards nomination voting will now run from Jan. 11, 2021, through Feb. 1, with the nominations announcement coming Feb. 4. The final round of voting, meanwhile, will run from Feb. 10 through March 10.

Last year's SAG Awards ceremony was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Big winners included the cast of Parasite, Joaquin Phoenix for Joker and Renée Zellweger for Judy.

The SAG Awards is only the latest awards show to delay its ceremony date as the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic. The 93rd Academy Awards and BAFTA Film Awards recently pushed their dates, too.

The Oscars is being delayed from Feb. 28, 2021, to April 25, 2021. The eligibility for films — which began Jan. 1, 2020, and was set to expire at the end of Dec. 31 — has been extended to Feb. 28, 2021. Meanwhile, the BAFTA Film Awards will be held Sunday, April 11, 2021, after originally being scheduled to take place Feb. 13, 2021.
