The 2016 SAG Awards Nominations Are Here — See The Complete List!

Awards season is finally upon us!

Okay… it's technically been awards season for a while, but now we finally got to hear who the actors themselves think deserve to be honored for their work this year.

That's because Anna Faris and Anthony Mackie presented 13 of the SAG Awards categories Wednesday morning on TNT, and we don't think we have a single complaint about any of the nominees!

Anna Kendrick wasn't the only one who tuned in to watch NBC's The Wiz Live!

Not only did the special starring Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige charm critics, but it KILLED in the ratings compared to last year's musical Peter Pan Live!

The Wiz averaged a 3.4 rating for adults 18-49 and 11.5 million viewers on Thursday night, while Peter Pan scored a 2.3 rating and 9.1 million viewers!

With The Wiz's talented cast — including the breakout performance of lead star Shanice Williams — we're not surprised people couldn't help but tune in!

Neither broadcast came close to 2013's The Sound of Music Live starring Carrie Underwood! Broadcast TV's first live musical in years scored a 4.6 rating and a whopping 18.6 million viewers!

We'll see if Fox can take on that ratings benchmark when Grease: Live takes the stage on January 31!

We can't wait to follow this yellow brick road!

There's less than a month until NBC airs its annual live musical, and these sneak peeks just keep getting better and better.

While we've gotten a look at what some of the stars of The Wiz Live! will be wearing on Dec. 3, Monday's all-new trailer for the stage production shows off what we can expect from the cast's more famous stars.

We're talking almost every main character — from Uzo Aduba and Amber Riley's Good Witches to Queen Latifah's titular Wiz.

In fact, Mary J. Blige's Wicked Witch of the West is the only person we've yet to see, so they must be saving the wickedest for last!

This is shaping up to be so much bigger than Sound of Music and Peter Pan and we could not be more excited.

Ch-ch-check out our latest look at The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC (above)!!!

They're officially off to see the wizard!

We're still two months away from getting swept back to Oz for The Wiz Live!, but by the looks of things, we think it's going to be well worth the wait.

NBC released the first cast portrait for the musical on Tuesday, and we're really feeling the modern costumes!

From Shanice Williams' adorable Dorothy and David Alan Grier's confident Cowardly Lion to Ne-Yo's suave Tin Man and Elijah Kelley's rather creepy Scarecrow, they sure do look like they're having a blast!

Unfortunately, we still haven't gotten a sneak peek of Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Common, or the rest of the cast, but we have a feeling their costumes will be just as AH-Mazing.

Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8/7c on NBC (below)!!!
