Ne creative team for the 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Jeff Margolis, executive producer and director of the 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®, has announced the creative team for this year’s Actors® honors. Many of the talented producers and artists behind the 12th Annual SAG Awards™ are returning to create this year’s ceremonies, joined by two new film segment producers.

The 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremonies will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS from the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center on Sunday, Jan. 28, at 8 pm ET/PT, 7 pm CT and 6 pm MT.

“Each year our production team looks forward to the SAG Awards as a reunion of creative colleagues and an opportunity for fresh collaboration,” said Margolis. “We take great pride in designing a memorable evening for both our community of actors at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the audience at home.”

Kathy Connell will produce for the 13th consecutive year (the first two were as a producer for SAG). SAG Awards Committee founding members Yale Summers (committee chair), Daryl Anderson (committee vice-chair) and Paul Napier, as well as committee members Shelley Fabares and JoBeth Williams, will produce for SAG; supervising producers for the ninth consecutive year are Gloria Fujita O’Brien and Mick McCullough.

Peabody Award-winner Stephen Pouliot will be writing his ninth SAG Awards script. In addition to the SAG Awards, Pouliot has collaborated with Margolis on numerous specials, including Julie Andrews: One Step Into Spring. (which Margolis directed and Pouliot wrote and produced,) CBS: 50 Years from Television City, The First Family's Holiday Gift to America: A Tour of the White House and A Gala for the President at Ford’s Theatre.

Production designers John Shaffner & Joe Stewart, who together share 29 Emmy® nominations, four Art Directors Guild nominations and five Emmys (including their 2005 kudo for The George Lopez Show), will be designing their fourth new set for the SAG Awards.

Also returning for his fourth year is lighting designer Jeffrey Engel, an Emmy-winner and 21-time Emmy nominee for projects including the 63rd and 64th Academy Awards®, both directed by Margolis.

Composer and conductor Lenny Stack, an Emmy-winner for music arranging for the Screen Actors Guild 50th Anniversary Special and composer of the current SAG Awards™ theme, returns for his eighth Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Filmmaker Douglass M. Stewart, Jr will produce the film tribute saluting the accomplishments of SAG Life Achievement Award honoree Julie Andrews. A veteran of 25 Oscar® telecasts and 11 Emmy shows, seven-time Emmy nominee Stewart returns for his third SAG Awards™ telecast. The film salute to the Screen Actors Guild’s membership is being produced by Quinn Monahan, who just completed directing and editing the feature The Falls. Monahan has created film packages for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. This is his first SAG Awards. Also joining the Screen Actors Guild Awards team is Paul Fagen, who will produce this year’s “In Memorium” homage. Fagen has created both film and live tributes for such events as the American Film Institute Awards, the Sundance Ray-Ban Visionary Awards and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Modern Master Awards.

With 20 branches nationwide, SAG represents nearly 120,000 working actors in film, television, industrials, commercials, video games, music videos and other new media. The Guild exists to enhance actors’ working conditions, compensation and benefits and to be a powerful, unified voice on behalf of artists’ rights. Headquartered in Los Angeles, SAG is a proud affiliate of the AFL-CIO. More information is available online at
