These SAG Life Achievement Award Winners Have Landed Hot 100 Hits

When Barbra Streisand accepts the Life Achievement Award at the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday (Feb. 24), she’ll become the 61st recipient of that career-capping honor.

She’ll also join a smaller subset of SAG Life Achievement Award winners who have landed hits on the Billboard Hot 100. That group includes Frank Sinatra, one of the few entertainers past or present with a legacy that can match Streisand’s, as well as some other stars you may be surprised to see ever cracked the Hot 100.

This year’s SAG Awards will stream live on Netflix starting at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT. The show will be held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, where Streisand received three of her eight competitive Grammy Awards (for “Evergreen (Love Theme From ‘A Star Is Born’)” and The Broadway Album).

A fair number of Streisand’s co-stars and colleagues have already received the honor. Walter Pidgeon, who played Flo Ziegfeld in her first film, Funny Girl, was honored in 1975. Gene Kelly, the legendary song-and-dance man who directed her second film, Hello, Dolly!, was feted in 1989. Robert Redford, her co-star in the classic romantic drama The Way We Were, was honored in 1996. Robert DeNiro, her co-star in the best-forgotten Meet the Fockers and Little Fockers, received the salute in 2020.

For the record, Eddie Cantor, the first recipient of the SAG Life Achievement Award in 1963, had hits on Billboard charts that pre-dated the Hot 100, as did Bob Hope (the 1966 recipient), Pearl Bailey (1977), Danny Kaye (1983) and Kelly (1989). But none of them ever reached the Hot 100.

Here are the SAG Life Achievement Award recipients who have cracked Billboard‘s marquee songs chart. We show the year they were presented with the SAG honor and the number of Hot 100 hits they have amassed.
