After the Recording Academy postponed the Grammys last week, it seemed like we’ll have to pick between watching this award show and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but that’s no longer the case. The latter has also been delayed to avoid clashing with the Grammys.

The SAG Awards are now scheduled to take place on April 4th, with a live broadcast on both TNT and TBS. They were previously scheduled to be held on March 14th, but this date would put them in direct conflict with the Grammys after this ceremony was postponed last week.

Once it became clear that their dates would clash, SAG-AFTRA released an official statement expressing their disappointment with the Recording Academy’s decision to take their date.

“We announced the same date for the SAG Awards last July 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,” reads the statement by this organization.

They added they’ll keep working with their sister organizations to find ways to make this year’s awards season as successful as possible because they share many of the same members. Postponing the ceremony seemed to be the only solution to this problem, but the nominees are still expected to be announced on February 4th.
