[UPDATE: Here’s the ballot for the 2020 Awards.]

On February 25, 1995, a much-loved performer walked to the podium on Universal Studios’ Stage 12 to open the inaugural Screen Actors Guild Awards®. She said:

Hello, my name is Angela Lansbury.

We are here this evening to honor our fellow performers in film and TV with an award simply called the Actor.

I know a little bit about the subject. I’ve been Elizabeth Taylor’s sister, Spencer Tracy’s mistress, Elvis’s mother, and a singing teapot. Let’s face it, at one time or another everyone loves the opportunity to act.

No matter what we do, I guess we’re all actors at heart. I mean just watch a child play “let’s pretend.” I mean actors are simply those people who have turned this impulse into a life’s work. So tonight is dedicated to the art and craft of acting by the people who should know about it: actors. And remember, you’re one too!

25 years later, the SAG Awards continue to be praised by critics for consistent style, simplicity, and genuine warmth. The Screen Actors Guild Awards presented by SAG-AFTRA, which made its debut in 1995, has become one of the industry’s most prized honors. The only televised awards ceremony to exclusively honor performers, it presents thirteen awards for the outstanding performances of the year in film and television in a fast moving two hour show which airs live on TNT and TBS.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
