What can I expect during the ceremony?

"Nothing political," host Mullally told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I don't think any of the humor will be snarky, like how the Golden Globes used to get super snarky," she added. "I really do love actors and talent."

Mullally placed an emphasis on acceptance speeches as one of the determining factors of the ceremony's success, referring to "heartfelt" addresses given in the past at the SAG Awards.
