Los Angeles - Acting icon and comedian Carol Burnett was honored with the 2016 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Lifetime Achievement Award on Jan. 30.
An 82-year-old industry veteran, Burnett was presented this prestigious award by such acclaimed actresses as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
In her witty acceptance speech, Burnett remarked, "I grew up not far from here. A block north from Hollywood Boulevard. I'm going to tell you my life story. When I was around nine or ten years old, my grandmother and I saved our pennies and we would go to the movies three or four times a week. Back then, in the covered wagon days, they had double features, which meant I could see as many as six to eight movies a week. Then, my best friend and I would act them out."
An Emmy-winning actress, Burnett went on to thank everybody at SAG-AFTRA and to all of the audience members for this "very special evening" and "very special honor." "I'm so glad we had this time together. Thank you," Burnett concluded.
This past May of 2015, Burnett performed at Queens College's Kupferberg Center for the Performing Arts in New York, which was well-received.
