The 2023 SAG Awards, held at Los Angeles's Fairmont Century Plaza on Feb. 26, took time to pay tribute to some of the many esteemed actors we've lost throughout the past year. During the ceremony, Don Cheadle introduced a montage of photos and clips paying tribute to those late stars. "We travelled with them on unforgettable journeys," Cheadle said. He added, "Although they've passed on, they've left behind the most precious gift: the ability to spend that precious time with them forever and ever."

Set to "Out Here on My Own" performed by Irene Cara (who died in November 2022), the video tribute included "Law & Order: SVU" star Richard Belzer, "Goodfellas" star Ray Liotta, sitcom star Leslie Jordan, movie star Olivia Newton-John, and Angela Lansbury, who received a lifetime achievement award from SAG in 1997. Others highlighted included beloved actor Paul Sorvino, Melinda Dillon of "A Christmas Story," "Star Trek"'s Nichelle Nichols, and "Seinfeld" alum Estelle Harris. The award show posted a full list of names on its website.
