On Sunday, January 27, the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were handed out at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony, which was broadcast live on both TBS and TNT, was hosted by Will & Grace star Megan Mullally.
Unlike other Hollywood award ceremonies, SAG Award winners are entirely chosen by the actors’ peers. All of the members of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) union in good standing as of December 1, 2018, were eligible to vote. That’s 120,785 entertainers.
Each individual trophy, called The Actor, is made out of solid bronze, stands 16-inches tall, and weighs 12 pounds.
Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Robin Wright, Glenn Close, Michael Douglas, Awkwafina, Laverne Cox, Antonio Banderas, and Gary Oldman were just some of the celebrities that took the stage to present the statuettes.
Tom Hanks handed out the evening’s one special honor, the 55th Annual SAG Life Achievement Award, to renowned actor, writer, director, producer, and communicator Alan Alda. During Hanks’ light-hearted presentation, he poked fun at the 83-year-old’s real name, Alphonso Joseph D’Abruzzo, talked about his iconic series M*A*S*H as being the original “must-see TV” show, and recalled his “cackle of a laugh.”
“It’s really hard to describe to you what it feels like to look out and see my fellow actors, my colleagues, my heroes welcome me up here like this. It’s an extraordinary feeling,” Alda stated during his acceptance speech.
He then talked about what being an actor means to him, especially during difficult times.
“[It’s] urgent to see the world through another person’s eyes when the culture is divided so sharply. Actors can help, at least a little, just by doing what we do, and the nice part is it’s fun to do it.”
