Alan Alda to receive SAG Lifetime Achievement Award

One of the most prolific and awarded actors in Hollywood, Alan Alda will be the 55th person to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild. 

Alda has won six Emmys (and 34 nominations), six Golden Globes, four DGA awards (including the D. W. Griffith Award), a WGA award, and has earned three Tony Award nominations, and an Oscar nod. He is the only person to have won Emmys for acting, writing and directing for the same program, M*A*S*H. He has been nominated for four SAG awards; two as a member of the casts of The Aviator and The West Wing and two individual – for The West Wing and Club Land on television.

“It is an honor and privilege to announce that our SAG Life Achievement Award will be presented to the fabulous Alan Alda,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. “He is an artist whose body of work is a testament to the craft and the magic of our business. His ability to make us laugh, to think and to feel is extraordinary. From theater to television, movies, and new media Alan’s dedication and talent are exceeded only by his contributions to a just and caring society.”

Past recipients of SAG’s Life Achievement Award include Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, Debbie Reynolds, Betty White and Morgan Freeman this year.

The 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be held on January 27, 2019 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
