Sally Field’s son, writer Sam Greisman, may not have been able to attend the SAG Awards, but he was certainly there in spirit — or at least in the Twitterverse.
Greisman shared his thoughts on the show in a series of tweets Sunday night. She posted a photo of Austin Butler on stage with his mother, who received this year’s SAG Lifetime Achievement Award.
Butler accompanied Field on stage to accept the award, but Greisman suggested her interaction with the “Elvis” actor might have been prize enough.
“He has a better game than me,” he tweeted. And when someone tweeted a photo of Field and Amanda Seyfried on the red carpet, she replied: “I got another hottie.”
Greisman also noticed the admiration and love Andrew Garfield showed his mom during the night, tweeting his disappointment at losing to Garfield at the awards show days before.
Garfield presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to his “The Amazing Spider-Man” co-star. During his speech, he called Field an “acting titan” and “north star”.
He later crashed Field’s interview with Entertainment Tonight to make sure she was doing well, telling the interviewer that Field is “some kind of surrogate for something in my life.”
Greisman joked that Garfield’s affection may have turned his family’s attitude toward Field.
“Andrew Garfield really raises the bar for her real family,” she wrote. “We’re not that good to her!”
Field shares Greisman with her ex-husband, Alan Greisman. The ’80 for Brady’ actress is also mum to Peter Craig and Eli Craig, whom she had from her previous marriage to Steven Craig.
The two-time Oscar winner received high praise for her speech at the SAG Awards, in which she noted her white privilege in her journey in the film industry.
“I was a little white girl with a nose born in Pasadena, California,” Field said on stage. “And when I look around this room tonight, I know that my struggle – as hard as it was – was light compared to some of yours. I thank you and applaud you.”
