SAG Awards 2021 start time, channel

The 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards begins at 9 p.m. ET today (Sunday, April 4). It's on TBS and TNT.

Hollywood's brightest stars shine tonight as we watch the SAG Awards 2021 live stream online, and it's pretty easy to watch — as it's on both TBS and TNT.  The 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards honors the year's best achievements in film and television performances and is a key precursor to the Oscars later this month. 

The SAG Awards 2021 ceremony will be very different this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The one-hour, pre-taped show won't have the usual banquet or red carpet, where the cast of Trial of the Chicago 7 could mingle with the cast of Bridgerton.

Film nominees include Oscar frontrunners like Minari, the late Chadwick Boseman, Sacha Baron Cohen and Glenn Close. TV nominees span the likes of The Crown, Ted Lasso, Gillian Anderson and the stunt ensemble of Cobra Kai.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the 2021 SAG Awards live stream.

How to watch SAG Awards 2021 online anywhere, with a VPN

Just because TBS and TNT aren't available everywhere doesn't mean you can't watch the 2021 SAG Awards live stream if you're away from home. Watching the show along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy with the right VPN (virtual private network). You can stream the show from wherever you go.

We've evaluated many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It's also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)

Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It's also compatible with loads of devices - from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You'll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.
