It’s been a long time coming, but Lily Tomlin receive one of the biggest entertainment industry awards, the SAG Life Achievement Award will be presented to the openly gay actress on January 29 at SAG-AFTRA’s 23rd-annual SAG Awards.

This has been an honor-filled year for the 76-year-old actress—last month she was nominated for Grace and Frankie for a second time playing the divorcee.

“Lily Tomlin is an extraordinary actress, as equally adept at narrative drama as in comedy roles. But it is through her many original characters that Lily’s creative genius fully shines,” SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said. “She has an ability to create diverse and distinct characters that are at once familiar, eccentric and oh so honest—in a way that illuminates life’s hidden corners. From Edith Ann to Frankie, her characters are wholly unique, and by exposing every nuance of human behavior they widen our scope of understanding.”
