Ernest Borgnine to be honored by SAG

Life Achievement Award will be presented Jan. 30 in L.A.

Ernest Borgnine will be honored with the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award at the 17th annual SAG Awards, to be held Jan. 30.

The 93-year-old, who is a best actor Oscar winner for 1955's "Marty," will be recognized for his career achievements and humanitarian efforts at the ceremonies, which will be broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles by TNT and TBS.

"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. It is with that same joyous spirit that we salute his impressive body of work and his steadfast generosity," SAG president Ken Howard said.

Borgnine, who first attracted attention for his performance as the vicious Sergeant "Fatso" Judson in "From Here to Eternity," has appeared in nearly 200 films and TV shows, including the series "McHale's Navy."
