    I just finished watching a little indie film called “That Evening Sun.” Isn't it about time SAG honored Hal Holbrook with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Long overdue, in my opinion

  2. cclair

    There are a lot of people who deserved to win that award but who have died without ever getting it.

    I can think of so many.
    Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas to name a few.

  3. Elizabeth Z.

    An impressive list, but did charlton Heston really deserve to win that sort of award back in 1971?? Couldn't they have found people who had been around much longer?

  4. Andre

    Sorry, I don't know if that has ever happened.

  5. helen dozar

    who was removed from list due to racial stereotyping?
