SAG Award® nominee Betty Gilpin (GLOW, Masters of Sex, Nurse Jackie) will join Vitalie Taittinger, Global Spokesperson and Artistic Director for Champagne Taittinger, for a toast that will open the red carpet for the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® on Sunday, Jan. 21.
Champagne Taittinger will open the famous SAG Awards red carpet with a toast, as it has every year since 2001. The family-owned Champagne House will also complement the Gala with bottles of their prized Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française, produced in Reims. In addition, as actors enter the SAG Awards showroom they will be asked to sign a Methuselah bottle of Champagne Taittinger. For every signature, Taittinger will contribute additional funds for the Foundation’s critical Emergency Assistance program, which supports actors and their families in times of urgent need.
Betty Gilpin is nominated in the category Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of Debbie Eagan in Netflix’s hit comedy series GLOW. She recently received an individual Critics Choice Award nomination on behalf of her performance. Gilpin was also seen earlier this year in a memorable arc on STARZ’s American Gods, and recently completed production on New Line’s romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic, alongside Rebel Wilson, Priyanka Chopra and Liam Hemsworth.
Champagne Taittinger is one of the last remaining family-owned and operated Champagne houses, both owned and actively managed by the family named on the label. The house is also the second largest domain or vineyard owner in the region, giving them ultimate control of quality from vine to bottle. The house style is Chardonnay dominant, which gives the cuvèes their signature elegance, delicacy and finesse
