Of the top industry accolades presented to performers, only the Screen Actors Guild Awards are selected solely by actors’ peers.  Two randomly selected panels-one for television and one for film-each comprised of 2,100 Guild members from across the United States, chose this year’s Actor and stunt ensemble honors nominees. Integrity Voting Systems, the Awards’ official teller, mailed the nominations secret ballots on Nov. 25. Voting was completed by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 14, 2009.

Awards ballots will be mailed on Tuesday Dec. 29, 2009. The entire active membership of the Guild across the country, numbering approximately 100,000 actors, will vote on all categories.  Ballots must be received by Integrity Voting Systems by noon Thursday, Jan. 21, 2010. Results will be tallied and sealed until the envelopes are opened by the presenters at the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremonies on Jan. 23.

The Screen Actors Guild Post-Awards Gala benefiting the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, will be hosted for the 14th consecutive year by People Magazine and by the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).

All True Blood fans are very excited for another opportunity for the entire cast to stand onstage and accept an award for the fantastic work that they do on the show!

I agree that it is best television show. With its writing, acting and wonderful directing, I am sure that True Blood will be nominated for many more awards in the upcoming months. Congratulations again to Alan Ball and the entire ensemble of True Blood.
