What sets the Screen Actors Guild awards apart from award ceremonies like the Golden Globes and Emmys is that while the Globes and Emmys involve actors getting pats on the back from people outside the industry (eg. the Hollywood Foreign Press and The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences), the SAG awards involve the actors patting themselves and each other on the back for their achievements in the last year.
Interestingly enough, this year it seems working actors around the country are in agreement, for the most part, with the Hollywood Foreign Press. With the exception of Best Female in a Drama Series and Best Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries, the SAG awards mirrored the Golden Globes, which took place earlier in the month.
