Carol Burnett has been paid the unclaimed SAG residuals she’s been owed for years, just in time for her to hit the stage to receive her SAG Lifetime Achievement Award this weekend. As reported by Deadline, Burnett was among the many actors who will be on hand Saturday for the 22nd annual SAG Awards who were owed unclaimed residuals.
Burnett subsequently has been paid, as have fellow nominees Johnny Depp, Ty Burrell, Suraj Sharma and Vincent Kartheiser. Among this year’s nominees still waiting to get checks for prior work are Eddie Redmayne, Nicole Kidman, Maggie Smith, Peter Dinklage, Ray Liotta and Louis C.K.
For the record: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who will present the award to Burnett on Saturday, don’t have unclaimed residuals.
