Debbie Reynolds will be the 51st recipient of SAG-AFTRA’s Life Achievement Award during the 2014 SAG Awards, set for January 25. She follows Rita Moreno, who was honored during last awards season. Reynolds certainly has the resume over her six decades in the business — she starred in more than 50 movies (an Oscar nominee in in 1964 for The Unsinkable Molly Brown), two Broadway shows, two television series and dozens of TV, cabaret and concert specials. She also is a high-profile philanthropist as co-founder of The Thalians, an organization that fights the stigma of mental illness, and as a longtime supporter of the Girl Scouts. Her Hollywood film memorabilia collection was the biggest ever assembled before she auctioned it off over the years, after years of trying to find a permanent home for it. The Life Achievement Award is SAG-AFTRA’s highest honor, given to an actor who fosters the “finest ideals of the acting profession.” On the acting side, Reynolds most recently played Liberace’s mother Frances in HBO’s Behind The Candelabra. http://deadline.com/2014/08/debbie-reynolds-2014-screen-actors-guild-life-achievement-award-winner-820956/ Congratulations to the great Ms. Reynolds on a well-deserved and long-overdue award!
