It also hosts the annual SAG Awards.

"I've been offered a job - a good job, a job I really want to do in Atlanta," Stone, 63, said in the video, according to Deadline. "That's why my hair is standing on end … because the Producers Guild of America will not guarantee that everyone on our show is vaccinated before I go to work."
