AceShowbiz - Lily Tomlin is announced by Screen Actors Guild as a special honoree for the upcoming annual awards show. The 76-year-old actress is set to receive Life Achievement Award during the 23rd ceremony on January 29. Past recipients include Carol Burnett, Debbie Reynolds, Rita Moreno, Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore.
"Lily Tomlin is an extraordinary actress, as equally adept at narrative drama as in comedy roles," SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said. "But it is through her many original characters that Lily's creative genius fully shines. She has an ability to create diverse and distinct characters that are at once familiar, eccentric and oh so honest - in a way that illuminates life's hidden corners."
Lily Tomlin has countless awards to her name. She won numerous Emmys, a Grammy, and two Tonys including Lifetime Achievement. She got a Golden Globe nomination for her last movie "Grandma" and a Emmy nod for her current Netflix show "Grace and Frankie".
