A filmed “In Memoriam” tribute honored the SAG-AFTRA members lost during 2018. In keeping with the SAG Awards tradition of highlighting the work of SAG-AFTRA members, SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carterisintroduced a montage that saluted the memorable 25-year history of the SAG Awards.
In a poetic gesture, the final award of the evening was presented by Jodie Foster, who was the first ever to receive an Actor® for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Tom Hanks was the first ever to receive an Actor® for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. Both actors were on the inaugural SAG Awards and returned as presenters for the show’s Silver Anniversary.
