LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ernest Borgnine will receive a lifetime achievement honor during the Screen Actors Guild's annual awards on January 30, the union said Wednesday.

Borgnine, who won a best actor Oscar for 1955's "Marty," has appeared in nearly 200 films and TV shows, including "From Here to Eternity" and the series "McHale's Navy."

"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," SAG president Ken Howard said.

The 17th annual SAG Awards will be broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles by TNT and TBS. This year's lifetime-achievement honoree was the newly ubiquitous Betty White.
