Temple Black To Be Honoured At Sag Awards

Revered former child star SHIRLEY TEMPLE BLACK is to be honoured at next year's (06) Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards for her movie career.

The actress will receive the Guild's Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment at the ceremony on 29 January (06).

In making today's announcement, Screen Actors Guild President MELISSA GILBERT said, "I can think of no one more deserving of this year's SAG Life Achievement award than Shirley Temple Black.

"Her contributions to the entertainment industry are without precedent; her contributions to the world are nothing short of inspirational.

"She has lived the most remarkable life, as the brilliant performer the world came to know when she was just a child, to the dedicated public servant who has served her country both at home and abroad for 30 years.

"In everything she has done and accomplished, Shirley Temple Black has demonstrated uncommon grace, talent and determination, not to mention compassion and courage.

"As a child, I was thrilled to dance and sing to her films and more recently as Guild president I have been proud to work alongside her, as her friend and colleague." Temple Black made her screen debut as a child in 1932. Her best known films are STAND UP + CHEER, BABY TAKE A BOW and BRIGHT EYES - the film which introduced her signature song ON THE GOOD SHIP LOLLIPOP.
