Five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy – and he's won the hearts of millions. Now, Dick Van Dyke is to receive his acting union's highest honor: the Screen Actors Guild's Life Achievement Award.
The tireless actor, 86, who's as comfortable with doing slapstick as he is with being suave, will be honored in January for his 60-year-plus career and his lifelong humanitarian accomplishments.
"Dick is the consummate entertainer – an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment,” says SAG-AFTRA co-president Ken Howard.

Katrina Bowden was "shocked" by Ben Jorgensen's proposal on Saturday – and one of her costars is equally stunned.
"What, she's engaged?" 30 Rock's Judah Friedlander said when PEOPLE broke the news to him on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday in L.A. "This is the first I'm finding out. They've been going out for a long time, and he's a great guy."
But Friedlander's surprise over Bowden's impending nuptials comes from more than the initial not knowing.

J.R. Martinez and Diana Gonzalez-Jones, who are expecting their first daughter in May, have narrowed the names to two. Expect something special – but nothing absurd.
"We won't name her Apple Cider or Salami," the Dancing with the Stars champ, 28, vowed to PEOPLE at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. "It won't be our favorite dish or our favorite getaway or favorite car or show."
So, what's left after that? "It will be something really close and personal to us that feels like we're giving something to her that is very special," he says.

Despite the many gorgeous celebrities flocking last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet, Kyra Sedgwick stood out thanks to a bold new accessory.
Clad in a fire engine red Emilio Pucci column, The Closer star (and best drama actress nominee) explained the significance of the linear design resting just north of her exposed ribcage.
"It's a family tattoo," she told E! "It's all our initials K, K, S and T."
The actress was, of course, referring to husband of 23-years, Kevin Bacon, their son Travis, 22 and daughter Sosie, 19.

Forget places like Koi, Spago and The Ivy – with the feast awaiting them at the Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony, Hollywood's elite will be counting themselves among the world's luckiest gourmands faster then you can say "Brown Derby."
For the main course, James Beard Award-winning chef – and mom – Suzanne Goin is offering slow-roasted salmon with yellow beets, spicy carrot salad and raita; grilled chicken breast with black rice, pea shoots and tangerine vinaigrette; and roasted root vegetables with quinoa and persimmon salsa.
Even notoriously picky Jack Donaghy, the character Alec Baldwin is nominated for best actor in a TV comedy for playing on 30 Rock, would find no cause for complaint.
For those herbivores among the 1,200 joining the SAGs for dinner, Goin is serving a vegetarian option: spicy carrot salad with yellow beets, cucumber, and black mustard seeds; roasted root vegetables with quinoa and persimmon salsa; and black-rice salad with English peas, pea shoots and tangerine vinaigrette.

And the list keeps growing.
Viola Davis, a double nominee this year for The Help, joins the list of presenters at Sunday's 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. The actress will be joined by fellow two-time nominees Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), The Artist's Berenice Bejo and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who will also present awards, the show's executive producer announced.
And first-time SAG nominee Shailene Woodley, nominated alongside George Clooney in The Descendants, is expected to be a presenter, as well.
Previously announced presenters on the show include Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey and Natalie Portman.
The SAG Awards are a night for honoring one's peers, as the winners are chosen by guild members. The show will be broadcast live on TBS and TNT (8 p.m. ET) from the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center on Jan. 29.

Armie Hammer will certainly be looking his best when he hits the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday. But he's looking pretty darn good in a mug shot that's just been released.
The J. Edgar star, who's nominated for best supporting actor, posed for this picture in November, when he was arrested for marijuana possession in Sierra Nevada, Texas.
Authorities allege they found pot cookies and a brownie, according to the police report.

What an initiation into the red carpet club.
Patrick J. Adams, star of USA's drama Suits, woke up Wednesday morning to the surprise news that he was a Screen Actors Guild Award nominee for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series. It was his first-ever nomination – for anything!
"This is my first year for a lot of this stuff," Adams tells the Los Angeles Times's Show Tracker blog. "This is all brand new to me. ... I never, ever imagined it would get to this point."

What is this, a conspiracy?
Showtime's spy thriller Homeland, which I picked as my No. 1 show for 2011 in PEOPLE's year-end issue (and which is a pretty safe bet to dominate top-10 lists elsewhere), is homeless – at least when it comes to the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, announced Wednesday. (President Barack Obama, in the same issue of PEOPLE, reveals that the show is a favorite of his, as well. Just saying ...)
The show, renewed for a second season, wouldn't work if it weren't for the tense gamesmanship and sexual chemistry of Claire Danes, as a CIA analyst, and Damian Lewis, as a former POW whose life intersects suspiciously with a circle of Middle East terrorists. And yet neither is up for the award.
