Cumberbatch, Redmayne to present SAG Awards

Los Angeles, Jan 22 – British actor Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne are among the presenters at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The actors, who are both nominated for SAG Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role Award, will be handing out prizes at the ceremony Sunday along with J.K. Simmons and Viola Davis, reports.

Other presenters on the big night include Laverne Cox, Bryan Cranston, Adrien Brody, Felicity Jones, Lenny Kravitz, Eric Dane and Tony Revolori.

Cumberbatch, who is also nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Sherlock: His Last Vow, last month said he is thrilled to be in line for the prestigious awards.

I’m over the moon. And so delighted to receive recognition in such esteemed company for both ‘Sherlock’ and ‘The Imitation Game’ by my acting peers. What an amazing early Christmas present. Thank you to all who voted and watched both pieces of work.

Birdman leads the way in the film honours, with nods in four categories, while in the TV accolades, Modern Family leads the way with four nominations, and Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, Homeland and Game of Thrones each scored three nods.
