Ernest Borgnine will receive a lifetime achievement award at next year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, the guild announced on Wednesday.
Borgine will be presented with the honor at the 17th annual awards simulcast, slated for January 30, 2011. The show will be broadcast live on TNT and TBS.
The 93-year-old has appeared in more than 200 movies, including 1953’s Oscar-winning “From Here to Eternity,” “Bad Day at Black Rock,” and 1955’s “Marty,” which won the Oscar for best picture and earned Borgnine an Academy Award and Golden Globe. Other Borgnine films include “Johnny Guitar,” starring Joan Crawford; “Vera Cruz,” with Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster; “The Catered Affair,” opposite Bette Davis; Robert Aldrich’s “The Dirty Dozen” and Sam Peckinpah’s “The Wild Bunch.”
Borgnine also appeared in five television series, earning Emmy nominations on “McHale’s Navy” in 1963, the 1980 Hallmark Hall of Fame production of “All Quiet on the Western Front” and a Daytime Emmy nomination for his voiceover work on the animated “All Dogs Go to Heaven” series in 1999.
Borgnine also received Emmy consideration for his guest role “as a devoted husband coming to terms with his wife’s imminent death” on the final episode of “E.R.” (Borgnine was the first “Center Square” on “Hollywood Squares” when the game show premiered in 1965.)
Borgnine's latest big screen appearance is in the upcoming “Red,” starring Bruce Willis.
