Legend Dick Van Dyke Received The ‘Lifetime Achievement’ Award at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards [VIDEO]
Who doesn’t love the beloved actor and entertainer, Dick Van Dyke, right? Last night on the 49th Annual Screen Actor’s Guild awards, Dick was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award. There is nobody I can think of that deserves this award more than Dick Van Dyke. I grew up with Dick Van Dyke from Mary Poppins, Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang to the Dick Van Dyke Show with the talented, Mary Tyler Moore. There is nothing that this man can’t do. He is what I call, a true entertainer. There was time when an actor had to do more than act, they had to sing and dance, and boy could Dick Van Dyke do all that and more!
He sings, he dances, he’s an actor, a comedian, and a master of Prat Falls. For the younger folks who may not be familiar with what a Prat Fall is, here’s the definition from Merriam – Webster.com: 1: a fall on the buttocks 2: a humiliating mishap or blunder
The SAG awards are mainly voted on by the actors peers, so it is extremely a great honor!
Ben Affleck walks away with a huge award for his film “Argo” – Outstanding Performance from a Cast in a movie. Congratulations to Affleck, who had just the day before, received the top award at the Producers Guild of America Awards. I’ve yet to see the film, but It’s on my to do list for sure.
The Best Actor and Actress SAG award went to Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln and Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook. Jennifer of course played Katniss Everdeen in “Hungry Games” trilogy. She has been gaining a lot of attention lately.
Lincoln’s Tommy Lee Jones and Les Miserables’ Anne Hathaway took the supporting actor and actress categories.
In the TV catergories, PBS’ Downton Abbey received the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series. I was happy to see ABC’s Modern Family received the exact award for a comedy, cause it is genius and my favorite sitcom.
I have to share with you his acceptance speech along with fun video featuring Dick Van Dyke and his enormous talent.
