Smart, who revealed Thursday she's on the mend from a recent heart procedure, had her costar Christopher McDonald accept the award on her behalf as she continued her recovery.
"I'm so sorry I can't be with you tonight," McDonald, 68, read on Smart's behalf. "I'd like to acknowledge my brilliant Hacks cast and crew, HBO, Universal, my representatives and tonight, especially, I'd like to honor all of the guest stars that appeared in season 2."
Smart — via McDonald — shouted out comedians Susie Essman and Martha Kelly and actress Polly Drapper, among others.
"Lastly, Conner and Forest — that's her boys — you are everything. My everything and I love you so much," McDonald concluded.
Earlier in the night, Smart's costar Rose Abdoo said on the SAG Awards red carpet that the five-time Emmy winner is "doing fantastic."
"We're having a dirty martini for Jean tonight," added Johnny Sibilly, who plays Wilson on the HBO Max dark comedy.
