The creators and curators behind the scenes of the Screen Actors Guild Awards hustled and bustled for the upcoming show, which takes place in Los Angeles on January 27. SOUNDBITE: Andrea Wyn Schall, event supervisor for the SAG Awards, saying (English): "Every year we design a new plate of food and every year we design a new table set. The basics, the way the room is set up with long diagonal tables here as well as here stays the same, but we do different linens, different glassware, and flatware. We design a plate of food that's going to appeal to everybody and that's a really hard job to go and taste the food, and then taste it again, and then taste it for a third time. I think that's the hardest part of my job." The goal is to provide a unique variety of dishes that can stand alone, but are also capable of complementing each other. The busy and meticulous preparations for the ceremony will continue through the weekend, literally running up to the show's live broadcast at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on January 27.
