The 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, honoring the best achievements in film and television performances for the year 2020, were presented on Sunday, April 4, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The ceremony was broadcast live on both TNT and TBS, airing for one hour rather than the usual two. 

The shortened one-hour show was pre-recorded. The winners were informed of their wins a few days before the telecast, and the acceptance speeches were also pre-taped. These changes were a COVID-era decision in order to protect the guild's nominees and presenters.

As she posed in her pool, the Little Fires Everywhere star wore a striking blue, retro-inspired embellish Etro gown and matching swimming cap. She also dripped in Bulgari jewels.
