Also stated on the SAG Awards Web site, other highlights from the night will include the Life Achievement Award, presented to an established performer for fostering the highest ideals of the acting profession and tributes to the varied talents within the Guild’s membership. SAG’s 46th Life Achievement Award was presented this year to Betty White.
The 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards’ salute to the SAG membership honored our comedic actors. In previous years, the SAG Awards have acknowledged stunt performers, background singers, dancers, background performers, character actors, regional actors, stunt women, animation voice-over performers, commercial actors, and child actors.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards are also unique in the size of its voting body. Two randomly selected panels of 2100 SAG members each from across the United States choose the nominees for television and motion pictures. The final ballot then goes out to the full guild membership — approximately 100,000 members — who select the outstanding performances of the year.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards is the only national network television show to acknowledge the work of union members. Screen Actors Guild is affiliated with the AFL-CIO through the Associated Actors and Artistes of America (the Four A’s). For more information visit: http://www.sagawards.org/
