#People Magazine to Host SAG Awards Afterparty

Attendees at this Saturday’s SAG Awards will have a place to party after the big show, thanks to People.

The magazine returns as host of the official post-SAG Awards gala for a 26th year at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles. As part of the partnership, People will once again make an unspecified grant to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s emergency assistance programs, which helps performing artists facing life-threatening illness and severe economic hardship. 

People is proud of our established partnership with the SAG Awards and to help commemorate remarkable actors and their performances over the past year,” offered People‘s editor-in-chief Wendy Naugle. “SAG-AFTRA Foundation provides vital support to the entertainment community. As People celebrates our 50th anniversary, we are excited to celebrate the cultural change makers who have made the industry what it is today — and who will do so in the years to come.”

Added SAG Awards executive producer Jon Brockett: “People‘s official post-SAG Awards gala is the ideal way to close a memorable night honoring actors and celebrating their incredible work. It’s truly the actors’ party.” Said Cyd Wilson, SAG-AFTRA Foundation executive director: “We are particularly thankful for People’s annual support of our emergency assistance program, which became a lifeline for thousands of performers facing extreme financial hardship in this uniquely challenging year.”

Also returning is noted event producer Tony Schubert of Event Eleven who is designing and producing the gala for a 14th year. The gala will feature a new official spirits sponsor, Campari, which will be poured to make an SAG Awards cocktail called the Campari Red Carpet. Michelin-starred chef and media personality Curtis Stone, of Curtis Stone Events, will spearhead the menu, which will feature passed canapés, cheese, charcuterie and crudités stations and his signature mini Australian savory pies and homemade dips.

Back to provide beats is celebrity DJ Michelle Pesce. People is teaming with the photo pros at Shutterstock on a portrait studio, while City National Bank will present the official SAG Awards engraving station.
