Ernest Borgnine to be honored with Life Achievement award at SAG Awards

01/30/2011 by Kristina Lopez

Actor Ernest Borgnine is set to receive the Life Achievement award at the 17th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday for over 70 years of work on film and television.

"Whether portraying brutish villains, sympathetic everymen, complex leaders or hapless heroes, Ernest Borgnine has brought a boundless energy which, at 93, is still a hallmark of his remarkably busy life and career," Screen Actors Guild National President Ken Howard said in a statement. "It is with that same joyous spirit that we salute his impressive body of work and his steadfast generosity."

Borgnine is known from roles in Hollywood classic films like "From Here to Eternity" and for his Oscar Award-winning role in the 1956 film "Marty." He was recently seen in "Red" opposite Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and Mary-Louise Parker.

The actor has also had a slew of television work including starring in "McHale's Navy," which earned him his first Emmy nominations, and guest roles on "ER," "JAG," and "Touched By An Angel."

Last year's lifetime achievement award went to Betty White. The 17th annual SAG Awards will air live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 30. Check out the full list of nominees and be sure to check back at OnTheRedCarpet.com for arrival photos and winners.
