SAG Awards: Why you should care this year

By Duarte Garrido, Arts and Entertainment Reporter
As the Time's Up movement grows and #MeToo accusations widen, the SAG Awards will focus on Hollywood's most problematic group.
Actors - that's what it is all about.
Every year, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards come right after the Golden Globes and just before the Oscars.While the Globes grappled with the flaws of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and the Oscars struggled to diversify its largely white, middle-aged male Academy, SAG seemed to be genuinely about acting.Well, not any more. This year, the guild has announced it will grab the bull by its horns and take a stand on the #MeToo movement.Not only will Sunday's ceremony be presented exclusively by women, it is also being billed as a "unifying salute to the women who have been brave" enough to speak about their experiences of sexual harassment and assault.Things are also likely to spice up if actor James Franco takes the stage.

The Disaster Artist actor/ director has already said via his representative that he will be attending the ceremony, despite accusations of sexual misconduct.He has been nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role.Also likely to be present is comedian Aziz Ansari, who picked up a Golden Globe for his role in Netflix's Master Of None and is nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series.He has also been the subject of a heated online debate, after website babe.net published a first person account of an unidentified woman who accused Ansari of "sexual assault".Many, however, have rallied against the website and the alleged victim, saying the account details "just a bad date".However it turns out, all eyes will be on the audience's reaction to some of the invitees, as a prelude to the Oscars in March.
