“Devil Wears Prada” reunion with Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt set for 2024 SAG Awards

The Screen Actors Guild Awards will reunite the trio who starred in the beloved 2006 Oscar-nominated comedy inspired by writer Lauren Weisberger's job working for Anna Wintour.

A Devil Wears Prada cast reunion? You know how that thrills us.

Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and Emily Blunt — the trio of stars who fronted director David Frankel's irresistibly entertaining 2006 comedy hit — will reunite on stage as presenters at Saturday's 2024 SAG Awards, it was announced Thursday.

Streep received a SAG Award nomination 17 years ago for her leading role in the film as the ruthless magazine editor Miranda Priestly, a character writer Lauren Weisberger devised for her novel of the same name that was inspired by her time as an employee under Vogue head Anna Wintour. Hathaway played Andy, an up-and-coming journalist who reluctantly took a job as Priestly's assistant despite possessing zero fashion sense, which amuses, horrifies, and ultimately disrupts (for better or worse) the majority of Priestly's staff (Blunt, Stanley Tucci, Gisele Bündchen).

The film was later nominated for two Oscars — one for Patricia Field's costume design and another for Streep's performance — and grossed $327 million at the worldwide box office before becoming a modern classic for breaking down gendered lines that often constrained female-driven Hollywood productions set in the workplace.

"Because they'd given us such straitened circumstances to make the film with a smaller budget, this opened up and said that a 'chick flick' can be a huge hit with a broad audience. This is the first movie [where] men have come up to me and said, 'I know how you felt; I have a company, and nobody understands me. It's really hard,'" Streep exclusively told EW in 2021 as part of our 15-year anniversary oral history reunion with the cast and crew. "It's the hardest thing in the world for a man to feel his way through to the protagonist of the film if it's a woman."

Streep, Hathaway, and Blunt — who's nominated this year for her supporting work in Oppenheimer — will appear at the SAG-AFTRA union's annual awards show in front of a crowd of A-list film and TV stars at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall for the ceremony's first streaming show on Netflix's main platform.

Last year, after shifting from broadcast TV, Netflix debuted the SAG Awards on its YouTube channel, following the ceremony's decades-long partnership with TNT that began in 1998, with a TBS simulcast starting in 2007 and lasting through 2022.

The 2024 SAG Awards stream live Saturday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Netflix.
