Debbie Reynolds to Receive SAG Lifetime Achievement Award
Debbie Reynolds will be the recipient of the Screen Actors Guild’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the SAG Awards next January, the guild announced Monday.
Reynolds, 82, is the Oscar-, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated star of more than 50 movies, and has appeared on dozens of television shows. She is perhaps best known for her role in 1964’s The Unsinkable Molly Brown, for which she was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award, as well as her guest-starring turn as Grace’s (Debra Messing) mother on Will & Grace.
“I’m thrilled that SAG-AFTRA is presenting our Life Achievement Award to Debbie Reynolds,” SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard said in a statement. “She is a tremendously talented performer with a diverse body of screen and stage work, live performances and several hit records. Her generous spirit and unforgettable performances have entertained audiences across the globe, moving us all from laughter to tears and back again.”
The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be broadcast on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015.
