Reynolds, 82, is being honored for a career that began in the 1950s. She has starred in more than 50 movies, two Broadway shows and two TV series. A few of her memorable film roles include Singin' in the Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown (for which she was Oscar nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role) and How the West Was Won.
Reynolds' career achievements are impressive. She has been nominated for five Golden Globes and a Primetime Emmy for playing Debra Messing's mother in Will and Grace. She also sung with Frank Sinatra and danced with Fred Astaire.
With this lifetime achievement award, she joins the ranks of Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Robert Redford, Elizabeth Taylor and Angela Lansbury, just some legendary entertainers who have received the honor too.
Last year, the award went to actress and singer Rita Moreno.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards air on Jan. 25 at 8 P.M. E.T.
