While there was much to celebrate about the movie and television industries over the past year, the 2015 SAG Awards also highlighted some of the brilliant stars we lost in 2014.

The deaths of Robin Williams, a two-time SAG trophy-winner, Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won a SAG award in 2006 for “Capote,” and Joan Rivers greatly impacted the entertainment industry and their absence will always be painful.
