SAG Foundation’s turning 30 and to celebrate its three decades of giving back to SAG-AFTRA members, it’s honoring one of its best with the Actors Inspiration Award.
“To commemorate our landmark anniversary, we’re excited to honor Leonardo DiCaprio’s outstanding achievements,” said president JoBeth Williams, in a statement. “With beloved and acclaimed films as diverse as ‘Titantic’ to ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ to his latest film ‘The Revenant,’ Leonardo’s career is a gold standard example to his craft. Also, his work with LDF demonstrates his commitment to conservation and protection of our environment.”
The celebration event will take place Nov. 5 in Beverly Hills, at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.
Additional honorees as well as the list of performers for the musical showcase will be announced in the coming weeks. Ticket sales will go towards maintaining SAG Foundation.
