Global broadcasters lined up for Screen Actors Guild Awards; Priyanka Chopra among presenters
MUMBAI: Alfred Haber Distribution, Inc. (AHDI) president Alfred Haber has announced that the company has secured a number of sales in international territories for this year’s 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild (Sag) Awards.
This star-studded event – the only awards show in which actors vote for actors – is set to air live in the US on 30 January simultaneously on both TNT and TBS from the Shrine Auditorium. Among the broadcasters who have already signed on board for this year’s premiere event are: Global (Canada), Turner (Latin America), RTL-CBS (Southeast Asia), M-Net (Africa), DR (Denmark), ABS-CBN (Philippines), Turner (Germany), Power TV (Turkey), and Fox International Channels (Belgium/ Netherlands).
Priyanka Chopra ‘Quantico’ will be one of the presenters at the awards show. ‘Quantico’ returns from hiatus in March, for which Chopra received a People’s Choice Award. Chopra also is in pre-production on ‘It’s My City’, a series she created for the nexGTV digital platform, and is set to release three Indian regional films through her production company Purple Pebble Pictures.
“Entering its 22nd year, the Sag Awards continues as one of today’s most eagerly anticipated award shows. “For over two decades now, this distinguished event has been embraced by viewers around the globe and we are thrilled to offer this must-see event to key international markets,” commented Haber.
‘The Big Short’ goes head to head with ‘Spotlight’ for Best Ensemble in a film. The event will also honour and pay tribute to the Emmy-award winner comedian/actress, Carol Burnett, with the Guild’s most prestigious tribute, the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award for career achievement.
