Audra McDonald, Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Frank Langella, Tituss Burgess, Bryan Cranston, and many other stage actors are among nominees for the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which are presented January 29.

The 23rd annual SAG Awards will be handed out in an 8 PM ET ceremony broadcast live on TNT and TBS.

Four of the nominations went to performances that previously won Tony Awards: Washington and Davis in the movie adaptation of Fences, Cranston in the TV adaptation of All the Way, and McDonald in the TV adaptation of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill.

Meryl Streep is nominated for playing stage star Florence Foster Jenkins in the eponymous bio-film.

The SAG Awards honor the best work in film and TV acting. SAG merged with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists in 2012. SAG-AFTRA represents more than 160,000 actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists, and other professionals.
