Dick Van Dyke will receive the Screen Actors Guild’s highest honour: The Life Achievement Award.
Screen Actors Guild & American Federation of Television and Radio Artists co-president Ken Howard calls Van Dyke ”an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment.”
Van Dyke is being honoured for his 60-year career, which includes his hit 1960s TV show and film credits such as ”Bye Bye Birdie” and ”Mary Poppins,” and his commitment to philanthropic causes.
The 86-year-old entertainer will receive the honour at the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony in January.
He has already won a Tony, a Grammy and five Emmy awards.
