The pre-show included the announcement of True Blood (TV) and Incepton (film) as the winners of Screen Actors Guild Honors for Outstanding Performances by Film and Television Stunt Ensembles by SAG Awards committee chair JoBeth Williams (actress in Private Practice) and Ken Howard, SAG president. The pre-show, also streamed live on and tbs.comand, ran live for the first time on Clear Channel’s SpectacolorHD digital billboard, located in the heart of Times Square.
