This year's Screen Actors Guild Awards take place in Los Angeles on Sunday 27th January with Denzel Washington, Daniel Day-Lewis and Helen Mirren among the nominees hoping to walk away with an award.
Away from the glamour of the big night, many hours of toil have been going on in a Californian workshop to create the prized 'Actor' statuettes that Hollywood's great and good will be hoping to get their hands on.
