The 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards presented by SAG-AFTRA was held on 27th February 2022, Sunday at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

Screen Actors Guild Awards Life Achievement Award- Helen Mirren
Actress Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett honored Helen Mirren on behalf of SAG-AFTRA and in her acceptance speech, Helen Mirren said, “Lifetime Achievement, that sounds so grand. I supposed I’m still alive so by that measure, I’m eligible. But honestly, any achievement that I’ve succeeded in is the result of my mantra, ‘Be on time and don’t be an ass.'Thank you S-A-G so much for this, I hate to say SAG at my age, it's always S-A-G for me. I’m simultaneously enormously proud, and yet I’m driven with the understanding that I absolutely do not deserve this. And there is this conflict that I believe you all understand: insecurity versus ego. That cocktail that I believe most actors sip in the evening as they contemplate the wonderful gift they received the moment they decided to become an actor. I've been angsting about what to say tonight and then it came to me: to all those people with whom I have shared my professional life, the actors! It is the actors I address. From following my dream of following in the footsteps of Eleonora Duse, through the inspiration of Anna Magnani, Monica Vitti and onto Winslet, Riley, B. Carter, Coleman, Comer, Cole and Kirby, I joined our tribe of rogues and vagabonds a long time ago and it is you actors that I want to thank. Your perception, your emotional generosity, your great intelligence, your incredible energy and your helpless dedication to our chosen profession."
The actress added lastly that in her experience of acting and working the entire crew and cast they work with tend to admire each other's work. She added, "Together we laugh, we weep, we worry, we change clothes, we throw up and we suffer diarrhea. Don't you? A few years ago I had the fiercesome and wonderful challenge of performing Phèdre and standing in that 2,000-year-old space, I felt the ghosts of all those ancient Greeks and vagabonds. I felt their fear, I felt their elation and I felt at one with them. Actors, you are a magnificent tribe. This is for the actors, thank you!"
Congratulations to the winners!
