SAG to Honor Betty White


Betty White, a star of The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, will receive the Life Achievement Award at the 16th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards show in January, the organization announced on Tuesday.

The 87-year-old actress is to be recognized for her professional and humanitarian accomplishments, according to a statement from SAG reported by United Press International.

"Whether creating some of television's most indelible characters, plunging into film roles with joyous gusto, or perfecting the art of the quip as a television panelist and host, Betty White has entertained audiences with her impeccable comic timing and remarkable wit for more than 60 years," SAG national president Alan Rosenberg said. "Her lifelong devotion to the welfare of animals, manifest in her work as an author, producer, and philanthropist, is further evidence of her tremendous humanity and meaningful contributions in so many important areas. Screen Actors Guild is honored to celebrate Betty White's extraordinary achievements over the course of an exemplary life."

White recently appeared as the grandmother of Ryan Reynolds's character in the film The Proposal.

The SAG award show will air on TNT and TBS on January 23.
