Another huge honour is on its way for Morgan Freeman, an Academy Award winner. The 80-year-old is set to be presented with the SAG Life Achievement award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment. He will receive the award during the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 21st.

E! News reports that SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said, “Some actors spend their entire careers waiting for the perfect role. Morgan showed us that true perfection is what a performer brings to the part. He is innovative, fearless and completely unbound by expectations. As a chauffeur, convicted murderer, boxing gym attendant, pimp or president, Morgan fully realized every character, baring their souls and showcasing their humanity. It has been a privilege to see his genius at work.”
