TWO TRUTHS & A LIE: SAG AWARDS EDITION

In only a couple of months, the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will commence at the Shrine Exposition Center. But did you know that the first and second SAG Awards were held at Universal Studios' Stage 12 and the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium? In fact, how well do you know the Screen Actors Guild Awards? Take a look at the following sets of three statements and see if you can catch which of the following truths is actually a lie. (Answers can be found at the bottom of the post.)

1. The actor who has received the most SAG Awards is Anthony Edwards, with 6 statuettes.

2. Alec Baldwin and Edie Falco have been nominated the most for a SAG Award, each with 20 nominations.
