Screen Actors Guild Awards
The Screen Actors Guild Awards annually celebrates outstanding performances in motion pictures and prime-time television from the previous calendar year. The ceremony includes the distinctive ensemble awards, which honor the collaborative performance by a cast in a motion picture and by the ensemble casts of both comedy and dramatic TV series. And among the evening's highlights is the presentation of the SAG Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment. This year, Carol Burnett -- comedic trailblazer, actor, singer, dancer, producer and author -- has been named the 52nd recipient of SAG-AFTRA's highest tribute: the SAG Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment. Burnett is known for her comedic and dramatic roles on television, film and Broadway, most notably The Carol Burnett Show. She counts multiple Emmys®, a special Tony®, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a Kennedy Center Honor and the Mark Twain Prize for Humor among her preeminent industry and public honors.
