Carol Burnett to receive lifetime achievement award at the SAG Awards.

LOS ANGELES: Actor and comedian Carol Burnett will receive the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award at a ceremony in January, SAG announced Monday. “Carol Burnett is a creative dynamo and a comedic genius.

Burnett, 82, will be the 52nd recipient of the award presented by SAG-AFTRA, that which honors those with the “finest ideals of the acting profession,” reads a SAG press release. She embodies the generosity and courage that the greatest actors use in creating enduring and memorable characters,” SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howard said in a statement. From her heartbreakingly hilarious Starlet O’Hara to the adorably inept Eunice and alarmingly funny Miss Hannigan, Carol has delighted and inspired millions of viewers and thousands of comedic actors. The group’s awards show, scheduled to take place on Jan. 30, 2016 in Los Angeles, annually recognises the best performances of the previous year on film and TV. Her innate love of actors led to the creation of an ensemble cast that made The Carol Burnett Show a masterpiece of variety programming.” This latest honor comes at a serendipitous time for fans of Burnett, or those like Amy Poehler and Tina Fey who have found themselves inspired by her innovation and success.
