Dick Van Dyke to be Honored With 2012 SAG Award

Dick Van Dyke, actor, singer, dancer, writer and comedian, will receive SAG-AFTRA’s highest honor – the SAG Life Achievement Award at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, at 6 p.m Mountain Time.

Van Dyke holds five Emmys, a Tony Award and a Grammy. He is 86 and still is out there performing. It started a half-century ago with the Broadway and film versions of Bye Bye Birdie, then the great Dick Van Dyke show, with Mary Tyler Moore (written and produced by Carl Reiner) and of course the film classic Mary Poppins, with Julie Andrews.

This is a great choice by SAG-AFTRA
