Helen Mirren Receives Actors Guild Life Achievement Award

The union said Thursday that the Screen Actors Guild has selected Dame Helen Mirren as its 57th Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

The 76-year-old English theater and film actor has a reputation for over 50 years and has played everything from a gangster girl in Good Friday to Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen. Mirren will add this latest award to a solid collection of awards including Oscars, Tony and several SAG, Emmy and BAFTA awards.

“I am honored to be selected to receive the SAG Life Achievement Award,” Mirren said in a statement. “Since I was a young actor, I have always been inspired and taught by acting on the American screen, so this award has a special meaning for me.”

With 13 SAG Awards nominations and five wins, Mirren is also the most decorated SAG Life Achievement recipient, according to the union.

“Dame Helen Mirren is just a brilliant and flamboyant talent,” said SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher in a statement. “She set a very high bar for all actors, and in role after role she surpasses even her outstanding performances. I have always felt a kinship with Helen. She is the queen of England and I am the queen of queens. She won the Oscar, and I’m the left-hander of the year. It’s creepy. “

The 28th annual SAG Awards will air live from Santa Monica, California on February 27 on TNT and TBS at 8:00 pm ET.
