Betty White will receive her Life Achievement Award at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild ceremony from her "The Proposal" co-star Sandra Bullock. The veteran actress will be handed the honor for her TV and film work, as well as her humanitarian accomplishments, at the annual prizegiving in Los Angeles on January 23, 2010.
Bullock will pay tribute to White - who has been a regular on American television for more than 60 years - after they became close on the set of hit comedy "The Proposal", in which White played Ryan Reynolds' grandmother. The 87 year old is best known for her role as lovable Rose Nylund in 1980s sitcom "Golden Girls".
Previous Life Achievement Award recipients included James Earl Jones who took home the nod in 2008 and Charles Durning who earned his award in 2007. Moreover, Julie Andrews and Shirley Temple Black were awarded the honors in 2006 and 2005 respectively.
