Congratulations to tonight’s winner of the Screen Actors Guild award for lifetime achievement, Lily Tomlin!

From her appearance on “Laugh-In” as Ernestine the telephone operator and Edith Ann the little girl to her subtle, complex, witty performances in films from “Nashville” to “All of Me,” “I Heart Huckabees,” “Nine to Five,” “The Incredible Shrinking Woman,” the recent “Grandma” and her Netflix series with longtime friend Jane Fonda, “Frankie and Grace,” her Tony-award winning one-woman show “The Search for Intelligent Life in the Universe,” and her voice work as the teacher in “The Magic School Bus,” Tomlin has given us decades of humor, insight, and a deep humanity.
