CRITIC’S CORNER

Screen Actors Guild Awards
8 p.m., TNT/TBS

As the title implies, this kudo-cast, now in its 19th year, is for, by, and about actors. In fact, that’s what they call the trophy: the actor. Another element that sets this back-patter apart is the fact that it recognizes teamwork by handing out awards to entire casts. For film, that means the ensembles from “Argo,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Lincoln,” “Les Misérables,” and “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” will duke it out.
