SAG Awards ‘extremely disappointed’ Grammys moved to March 14th: ‘We announced the SAME date last July!’

SAG-AFTRA ‘reached out’ to the Recording Academy on Tuesday after they announced they were moving the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards from January 31 to March 14 – the same exact date as the 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards. We are extremely disappointed to hear of the conflicting date,’ SAG-AFTRA said in a statement to Deadline.

‘We announced the same date for the SAG Awards [on July 2] with the intent to give the greatest possible scheduling consideration for other awards shows. We expect the same consideration from sister organizations throughout the industry.’

They continued: ‘Our two organizations share members and work together effectively to advocate for artists in many areas. In an environment that is increasingly challenging for televised awards programs, we also have a mutual interest in successfully showcasing the artistry and talent of our respective memberships.’

Both awards shows – airing on TNT/TBS and CBS, respectively – are scheduled to take place in Los Angeles
