Video Watch: Barbra Streisand Accepts the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award

Streisand was honored by her peers at the February 24 ceremony.

The 30th Annual SAG Awards were held February 24, and an array of awards were given to theatrical talent, including the luminous Barbra Streisand, who received the Guild's Life Achievement Award.

Bestowed by her peers, Streisand accepted the award before a rapturous audience, who greeted her with a minute-long standing ovation following a montage of some of her greatest onscreen moments. Numerous actors, including Anne Hathaway and Hannah Waddingham, could be seen on the brink of tears before Streisand was even able to begin her acceptance speech.

To see her speech—which covers how the original film adaptation of Guys and Dolls changed her life forever, her love for William Wyler and Harry Stradling, and why she considers it a privilege to be a part of the performing profession—check out the video above.

In the competitive portion of the ceremony, Tony nominee Da'Vine Joy Randolph continued her domination of the supporting actress category, bringing in her 37th ceremony win for her performance in The Holdovers (by the end of the weekend, that number had swelled to 38, with Randolph bringing home the Critics Choice award as well).

Additionally, Succession, starring Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, and Jeremy Strong, took home Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series for its final season, and Pedro Pascal won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his performance in The Last of Us.
