Lily Tomlin Receives Life Achievement Award From Dolly Parton at 2017 SAG Awards

29 January 2017 6:47 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lily Tomlin's indelible mark on film and television was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild on Sunday.

The celebrated star was presented with the award by country music icon and 9 to 5 co-star Dolly Parton. Jane Fonda, who stars with Tomlin on the hit Netflix dramedy Grace and Frankie, was scheduled to present, but was forced to cancel due to strep throat, Tomlin told Et's Nancy O'Dell on the red carpet.

Tomlin, like so many others at this year's show, got political in her speech, but managed to use her razor wit to bring levity to the seriousness of the political climate.

SAG Life Achievement Honoree Lily Tomlin Reflects on Her Long Career

24 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most legendary American comedians can’t claim the toddler set among their most strident fans, but back in the late 1960s, when Lily Tomlin was on the road performing stand-up at venues across America, she would make sure to schedule two shows — one at night for the adults, and one in the afternoon for their children.

“If I did a show in a nightclub, they’d open the club in the afternoon and I’d have a show where kids would come with their mothers,” says Tomlin, who earned her showbiz sea legs as a cast member, first on ABC’s short-lived “Music Scene” and then on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,” in which the iconic characters she created — Ernestine was a telephone operator with a signature chortle; Edith Ann was a precocious 5½-half-year-old in an oversized rocking chair who’d make appearances on “Sesame Street”— proved a gigantic hit among audiences of all ages. »

Roger Corman finally accepted himself as an iconic filmmaker for this, his final show for A.I.P.. Barely released and long considered a failure, Gas-s-s-s – Or – It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It sees Corman and his writer associate George Armitage attempting a Mad magazine- like amalgam of all the counterculture trends of the late 1960s. That tactical mistake becomes eighty minutes of unfocused and unfunny satire. Armitage’s script and dialogue might occasionally hit some serendipitous notes, »
