Dick Van Dyke will receive the Life Achievement Award at the 19th Annual SAG Awards.

"Dick is the consummate entertainer — an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment," SAG-AFTRA Co-President Ken Howard said in a statement.

Van Dyke is best known for his roles in The Dick Van Dyke Show, Mary Poppins and the Broadway production of Bye Bye Birdie. Recently, he played the villain opposite Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum. Van Dyke's range of performances has earned him five Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy throughout his five-decade career.

At last year's SAG Awards, Van Dyke presented his Dick Van Dyke Show on-screen wife Mary Tyler Moore with the Life Achievement Award. No word on whether or not Moore will return the favor this January.

The SAG Awards ceremony will air live on TNT and TBS on Jan. 27 at 8/7c.
