It's nearly time for the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The SAG Awards are chosen by thousands of actors, making the honor among the most coveted of the busy awards season because of the element of peer recognition.

In line with the Time's Up Movement, all the presenters will be women. The star of The Good Place is playing a role (host) that the SAG Awards do not often formally have, and with that we imagine that there is going to be a very interesting vibe and feel to the show this year.

Red carpet: 5 to 7 p.m. CT on E!

McDormand and Oldman have already collected Golden Globe and Critics' Choice Awards - McDormand for her turn as the mother of a murdered daughter in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" and Oldman for his portrayal of British wartime Prime Minster Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour". SAG Award victor and Oscar victor Morgan Freeman will be conferred with the SAG Life Achievement Award.

The list of all-female presenters taking the stage includes Emma Stone, Halle Berry, Lupita Nyong'o, Dakota Fanning, Kelly Marie Tran, Olivia Munn, Niecy Nash, Gina Rodriguez and Maya Rudolph.

X-factors for Eagles against Vikings
Foles has not been a world-beater and his first half against the Falcons included some plays that could be defined as lucky. After a 13-3 regular season, they picked up a playoff win by basically shutting down Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense.

The SAG Awards have reliably predicted the best actor Oscar victor in 18 out of its 24 years, including a run of 12 straight years.

What do you want to see on the 2018 SAG Awards?

Freeman, 80, received a best supporting actor Oscar for his performance in "Million Dollar Baby", a role that also garnered him a SAG Award. But it's been 22 years since a film that wasn't at least nominated for best ensemble at the SAG Awards won best picture at the Oscars. "The Big Sick", "Get Out", "Mudbound", "I, Tonya", and "The Shape of Water" have two apiece.

Drama ensemble nominees are the casts of "The Crown", "Game of Thrones", "The Handmaid's Tale", "Stranger Things" and "This Is Us".

The leading television nominee is HBO's "Big Little Lies", with actresses Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Reese Witherspoon all competing in the best actress in a miniseries or movie.
