Congratulations, Debbie Reynolds!
The screen icon, 82, was honored at last night’s SAG Awards with the 2015 Life Achievement Award — and her famous daughter, Carrie Fisher proudly presented her mother with the special statuette.
“I am very close to this year’s Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award honoree,” the ‘Star Wars’ actress, 58, joked as she began her introduction. “She has been more than a mother to me — not much — but definitely more!”

A montage of Debbie’s career then began, showing the entertainer performing in Hollywood hits including 1952’s ‘Singin’ in the Rain,’ 1964’s ‘The Unsinkable Molly Brown’ and her Emmy-nominated stint on the 1998 – 2004 sitcom, ‘Will & Grace.’
“I’m so excited, my favorite picture was ‘Singin’ in the Rain,'” Debbie began her acceptance speech.
“I want to thank the Screen Actors Guild for awarding me with this tonight, it’s very unexpected. I’ve been in the business now 66 years and so I’m very excited to be here,” she said. “Thank you all very much for this wonderful award.”
