LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dick Van Dyke will receive the Screen Actors Guild's highest honor: The Life Achievement Award.
Screen Actors Guild & American Federation of Television and Radio Artists co-president Ken Howard made the announcement Tuesday. He called Van Dyke "an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment."
The 86-year-old entertainer will receive the honor at the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony in January. He has already won a Tony, a Grammy and five Emmy awards.
Van Dyke is being honored for his 60-year career, which includes his hit TV show and film credits such as "Bye Bye Birdie" and "Mary Poppins," and his commitment to philanthropic causes.
The 19th annual SAG Awards will be presented Jan. 27.
