Sally Field will be honored with the SAG Life Achievement Award, recognizing her career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment at the 29th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony

SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher said, “Sally is an amazing actor with an enormous range and an uncanny ability to embody any character. I joyfully watched her early career when she portrayed Gidget and the Flying Nun and then, in ever more challenging roles, as Sybil and Norma Rae. She never stopped being extraordinary, including as recently as Winning Time in which she was simply sublime as Jessie Buss.”

The SAG Life Achievement Award is given annually to an actor who embodies the “finest ideals of the acting profession.”

Field has previously received many accolades for her work, including two Oscars, a SAG Award, three Emmys, two BAFTA Awards, the New York Film Critics prize, the National Board of Review Award, the Los Angeles Film Critics Award, and the National Society of Film Critics honor. Field’s most recent film appearance was in Spoiler Alert and she will star in the upcoming comedy 80 for Brady alongside Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Rita Moreno.
