We’re happy to report that True Blood has won this year’s Screen Actor’s Guild award for Outstanding Performance by a “Stunt” Ensemble in a Television Series.
The announcement was made today from the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® red carpet by Screen Actors Guild Awards Committee Chair JoBeth Williams and Screen Actors Guild President Ken Howard. The announcement was made on the live SAG Awards® red carpet pre-show webcast on tnt.tv and tbs.com.
Screen Actors Guild Stunt Ensemble Honors commend work within the stunt community during 2010 and recognize stunt performers and coordinators. Nominees that were chosen by their respective SAG Awards® film and television nominating committees — each consisting of 2,100 SAG members from around the country, randomly selected anew each year — were announced on Dec. 16, 2010. Balloting procedures to choose the final recipients were sent to the nearly 100,000 eligible voting members of Screen Actors Guild on Dec. 30. Voting closed on Friday, Jan. 28 at noon PT. Results were sealed by the Guild’s official election teller until Williams and Howard announced them on the SAG Awards red carpet.
