Sunday’s SAG Awards ceremony will return to its normal two-hour live format on TNT and TBS. One of the highlights each year is the special In Memoriam segment. It’s been a particularly rough year with over 100 deaths of prominent actors and actresses who were likely members of SAG/AFTRA. Show producers typically are able to include approximately 40-50 people in a tribute. The 2021 segment saluted 55 people because they had responsibility for 14 months instead of 12.
Among that group will certainly be previous SAG president Ed Asner, who was also a life achievement award recipient. That honorary award was also presented to Sidney Poitier and Betty White, who both died this past year.
Who else might be featured in the 2022 tribute? Look for Oscar winner Olympia Dukakis, Oscar nominees Ned Beatty, Peter Bogdanovich and Dean Stockwell, plus Emmy champs Louie Anderson, Michael Constantine, Charles Grodin, John Madden and Peter Scolari. Other notables from the past year include Michael (“Meat Loaf”) Aday, Stuart Damon, Willie Garson, Howard Hesseman, Dwayne Hickman, Sally Kellerman, Norman Lloyd, Norm Macdonald, Gavin MacLeod, Helen McCrory, Markie Post, Bob Saget, Melvin Van Peebles, Clarence Williams III, Michael K. Williams and Jane Withers.
Here is our expansive list of almost 100 people who died since last year’s ceremony, several of whom will be honored on Sunday’s event:
