    Now that the awards season is winding down and we are heading for the
    big night, I thought it would be fun for us to start speculating on the
    lifetime achievement awards, mainly the Cecil B. DeMille Award and The
    SAG Lifetime Achievement Award. They are still literally a year away, so
    one thread covering them will suffice.

    Cecil B. DeMille Award
    I
    am not entirely sure where these people’s minds lie when it comes to
    choosing honorees for this. Some were definitely inspired (Woody Allen,
    Jodie Foster), others not so much (George Clooney). I honestly think it
    may be time for another lady to win this one, and before everyone chimes
    in with Meryl Streep, I will get to her in a bit. Jane Fonda would be
    the perfect pick in my eyes – she is legendary, she is having quite a
    career resurgence and she is of course one of the greatest actresses of
    all time. The only issue is she will have Grace and Frankie in
    contention, and that might make her ineligible next year. Other choices
    could be one of the brilliant British dames – Maggie Smith, Judi Dench,
    Helen Mirren, Angela Lansbury, or perhaps Glenn Close or Susan Sarandon.
    Now that Jessica Lange is done and dusted with American Horror Story,
    she could also be honored now.

    I can’t really think of too many
    men who could get this – Francis Ford Coppola could, but he’s really not
    the titan of cinema he was years ago. I would say Tom Hanks is ever so
    slightly young, but they gave it to George Clooney, so being in your 50s
    is not really too much of a stretch for this award. Hanks will have St.
    James Place next year, so he’s kinda out. Michael Caine is also a
    contender for it. Mel Brooks is too cool for them to honor, and I
    wouldn’t count Denzel Washington out either.

    Now Meryl Streep is
    obviously the top candidate, but up until this point she hasn’t received
    it yet because she has a project EVERY YEAR – but in one of the next
    few years (I think 2018) she most likely won’t, because that year will
    fall inbetween her massive projects. I am pretty sure that if they stick
    to the eligibility rules, that will be the time they give it to her.

    I’ll be back with the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award soon.

    George Lucas might be honored somewhere with the new Star Wars movie coming out in December. Cecil B. DeMille or Kennedy Center Honors? He already has the AFI.

     

    SAG — I’m thinking either Carol Burnett, Cloris Leachman, or William Shatner.

    This is kind of a left field pick but what if the Globes went with someone like Whoopi Goldberg? She has been nominated in all three female film categories winning two of them. She has plenty of honorable work in both drama and comedy as well as stints on television like Star Trek. If the HFPA were to think about it she would be the perfect choice

    Like all the ones you said and will add some others that come to mind:

    Tom Cruise
    Ben Kingsley
    Johnny Depp
    Sean Penn
    DDL
    Julianne Moore
    Anette Benning
    Debbie Reynolds
    Diane Keaton

    Saying that, I hope it’s Maggie Smith.

    Maggie Smith or Vanessa Redgrave would be excellent choices.  For the Oscar Lifetime Achievement Award hopefully this time it will be Doris Day.

    Cicely Tyson could be a possible candidate for SAG Lifetime Achievement award.
