Dick Van Dyke to get SAG award

Dick Van Dyke is to receive the Screen Actors Guild's highest honour: The Life Achievement Award.

Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists co-president Ken Howard made the announcement, calling Dick "an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment".

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.

Dick is being honoured for his 60-year career, which includes his hit TV show Diagnosis Murder and film credits such as Bye Bye Birdie and Mary Poppins, and his commitment to cahrities.

The 19th annual SAG Awards will be presented on January 27.
