It's almost time to watch the SAG Awards 2022 live stream online tonight. The 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards honors the year's best achievements in film and television performances and is a key precursor to next month's Oscars.

The SAG Awards 2022 brings back a live, in-person ceremony the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. Last year's awards were pre-taped and virtual. The festivities will kick off with a performance by Hamilton stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr. and Daveed Diggs. 

Miranda directed Tick, Tick... Boom! and wrote music for Encanto, both of which earned SAG nominations.

Film nominees include the casts of Belfast and Don't Look Up, Will Smith, Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck. TV nominees include the casts of Succession, Squid Game, Yellowstone and Ted Lasso.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the 2022 SAG Awards live stream.
