The Screen Actors Guild have announced their nominees for 2023 including this year’s recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.  “The Flying Nun” star Sally Field is set to become the 58th Award winner; joining previous honourees including Helen Mirren, Robert De Niro, Alan Alda, and Morgan Freeman.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to actors who demonstrate the “finest ideals of the acting profession”.

SAG-AFTRA president Fran Drescher spoke on Field via a statement saying, “she has an enduring career because she is authentic in her performance and always projects likability and humanity — she just connects. That’s part of why she has sustained her massive fandom and incredibly rich and layered career.  Sally is a massive star with a working actor’s ethos — just keep doing the work, being as good as you can. Every stage of an actor’s life brings different opportunities, and you just need to keep working. Sally does not stop and we hope she never does.”

The 76 year old actor has two Academy Awards, three Emmy Awards, a SAG Award, two BAFTA Awards, a National Medal of Arts, and a Kennedy Center Honor to her name.

Her numerous acting credits include “Smokey and the Bandit”, “Forest Gump”, “Mrs. Doubtfire”, “Hooper”, “Gidget”, “The Flying Nun”, and the television mini series “Sybil”.
