The Screen Actors Guild Foundation will be throwing the SAG Foundation 30th Anniversary Celebration to commemorate their milestone.

At the event, which will feature a musical showcase of celebrity performances, Leonardo DiCaprio will receive the Foundation’s Actors Inspiration Award. The seven-time SAG Award and five-time Oscar nominee will be honored for his work in films like The Wolf of Wall Street, The Aviator, Inception and Django Unchained, as well as for his charitable commitment to sustain the world's oceans and forests through his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. 

“It is an honor to be recognized by the SAG Foundation, a group which does so much to support, sustain, and educate my fellow actors and give back to the entertainment industry, as well as the work it has done to advance children’s literacy," said DiCaprio in a statement.

DiCaprio's latest film, The Revenant, in which he plays a 19th century frontiersman, will begin hitting theaters on Dec. 25.

The nonprofit SAG Foundation supports SAG-AFTRA professionals and their families, as well as serves the public at large through its signature children’s literacy programs.

The SAG Foundation 30th Anniversary Celebration will take place at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills on Nov. 5.
