Logan Browning and this year's SAG nominee Joey King have been named as ambassadors for the 26th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. In their capacity, Browning and King will be participating in the pre-award events ahead of the actual ceremony.

They are also in charge of giving viewers an inside look into the event through social media. The actual ceremony will also see 'The Irishman' star Robert De Niro honored with the 2019 SAG Life Achievement Award.

The ceremony's official website stated that this honor is awarded to actors who foster the "finest ideals of the acting profession".

De Niro said in a statement, "I have been a member of this union for over 50 years. It's an honor to receive this award from SAG-AFTRA." Leonardo DiCaprio will be presenting De Niro with the award at the SAG event this year.

Among the ensemble, the nominations are also cast of 'Big Little Lies', 'The Crown', 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel', 'Schitt's Creek' and 'Game of Thrones' so expect some major behind the scenes reunion actions.
