Tom Hanks Honors Alan Alda With Life Achievement Award at SAG Awards 2019!

Tom Hanks helped present his Bridge of Spies co-star Alan Alda with a huge honor at the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards!

The 83-year-old iconic actor accepted the Life Achievement Award during the ceremony on Sunday evening (January 27) at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Following a standing ovation, Alan opened up about his career and the impact of acting.

“It’s really hard to describe to you what it feels like to look out and see my fellow actors, my colleagues, my heroes. To welcome me up here like this is an extraordinary feeling,” Alan began.

He continued, “When we get a chance to act, it’s our job – at least in part – to get inside a character’s head and to search for a way to see a life from that person’s point of view. Another person’s vision of the world and then to let an audience experience that. It may never have been more urgent than to see the world through another person’s eyes than when a culture is divided so sharply. Actors can help, at least a little bit, just by doing what we do.”

Congratulations Alan!
