Sally Field Receives SAG Life Achievement Award!

Sally Field received the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award in 2017. Field, 76, remembered significant roles from her more than five decades of acting as she accepted the award from her Amazing Spider-Man co-star Andrew Garfield on behalf of SAG-AFTRA at the SAG Awards 2023 on Sunday at the Westin Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

While learning to act on stage as a child, actress Sally Field described how she “never knew what I would say or do” before joining SAG and landing her first acting role in the 1960s sitcom Gidget.

“I wasn’t looking for the applause or the attention, even though that’s nice… sometimes,” the actress said. “And it was never about a need to hide behind other people’s characters.

Acting to me has always been about finding those few precious moments when I feel utterly, sometimes dangerously alive. So the task has always been to find a way to get to that, get to the work, and claw my way if necessary.”

Field gave a speech in which she praised the other performers there for their arduous paths to fame, saying that, compared to some of them, her career’s “battle was lightweight.”

What do you know? Easy is overrated, continued Field. “I’ve driven fast automobiles, ridden horses, flown on wires, and surfed the ocean. I’ve worked at a textile mill, picked cotton, and had several identities.

Field said I’ve worked for Mrs. Doubtfire, played Forrest Gump’s mother, Lincoln’s wife, and Spider-aunt, Man’s, among other iconic parts. I’ve performed scenes while weighing 50 pounds of historical clothing, and I’ve also been entirely, partially, and completely naked.

She concluded her address by saying, “There is not a day that goes by that I don’t feel genuinely happy to call myself an actor. “Thank you so much for this wonderful recognition from you, the people I most aspired to have respect from in my life. Actors.”

In January, SAG-AFTRA named Field the 58th recipient of the honor. The honor is “presented yearly to an actor who nurtures the ‘finest principles of the acting profession,'” according to the organization.

SAG President Fran Drescher noted, “Sally is an outstanding performer with enormous variety and an extraordinary ability to embody any character. She has a long-lasting career because she is genuine in her portrayal and consistently exudes likeability and humanity; people relate to her.

Field, a renowned actor for over five decades, most recently appeared in the films 80 for Brady and Spoiler Alert. In the HBO series Winning Time: The Birth of the Lakers Dynasty in 2022, the actress also played Jessie Buss. The 2023 SAG Awards are broadcast live from the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles on Netflix’s YouTube channel.
