Lily Tomlin to Receive 2017 SAG Life Achievement Award!

Lily Tomlin has been chosen as the 53rd recipient of the SAG Life Achievement Award for the 2017 SAG Awards.

“Lily Tomlin is an extraordinary actress, as equally adept at narrative drama as in comedy roles. But it is through her many original characters that Lily’s creative genius fully shines. She has an ability to create diverse and distinct characters that are at once familiar, eccentric and oh so honest – in a way that illuminates life’s hidden corners,” SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said (via Variety). “From Edith Ann to Frankie, her characters are wholly unique, and by exposing every nuance of human behavior they widen our scope of understanding. On behalf of nearly 160,000 SAG-AFTRA members, we are honored to bestow our SAG Life Achievement Award on the truly amazing Lily Tomlin.”

Lily has been lauded throughout her lengthy career with awards including a 2014 Kennedy Center Award, the 2003 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, two Peabody Awards, multiple Emmys, two Tony Awards, a Grammy, a Writers Guild of America Award, and more. Congrats, Lily!
