Mary Poppins star DAME Julie Andrews will be honoured with a Life Achievement Award at next year's (07) Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The beloved stage, film, television and recording star and author, will receive the Guild's most prestigious tribute in January (28JAN07).
Screen Actors Guild President Alan Rosenberg insists Andrews is the perfect choice for the top award: "Julie Andrews is a woman of great generosity, creativity, courage, elegance and wit. She embodies and transcends the memorable roles she has created.
"Julie has been a positive presence in my life and continues to inspire multiple generations. I believe it is exceptionally significant to be recognised by people who do the same work you do.
"Julie seems genuinely touched and thrilled to be receiving an award from her fellow actors. I have assured her the honour is ours."
