Since 1997, the awards show has been held at the Shrine Auditorium, usually two weeks before the Oscars show in mid-March.
Perhaps because it takes place right before the Oscars (while the Academy is still deciding on who will be the winners), the stars are particularly friendly to the crowds in the bleachers at the SAG Awards. Celebrities as big as Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, Noah Wyle and Martin Sheen took the time to come over to the bleachers and shake hands with the public. That's not something you see at many award shows.
Getting there: Location of the awards ceremony may vary. Phone for this years' location. The Shrine Auditorium is located across the street from the U.S.C. campus, just north of Exposition Park, at 649 W. Jefferson Boulevard, Los Angeles. / From Hollywood, take the Hollywood (101) Freeway south (about five miles) to the Harbor (110) Freeway south. Take the Harbor Freeway south (about three miles) to the Exposition Boulevard exit. Go west one block west on Exposition, then turn right (north) on Figueroa Street. Go one long block north, and turn left (west) on Jefferson Blvd. The Shrine will be on your right (north) side.
