NEW YORK -- Rita Moreno will receive the Life Achievement Award for career and humanitarian accomplishments at the 20th annual SAG Awards.

Screen Actors Guild & American Federation of Television and Radio Artists Co-President Ken Howard made the announcement Monday. He said Moreno is the 50th recipient of the award, "the most prestigious honor we bestow."

Moreno, 81, won a best supporting actress Oscar for 1961's "West Side Story." She has also won two Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy Award, one of the few artists to win all four top show business awards.

She currently appears in TV Land's "Happily Divorced."

The SAG Awards will air Jan. 18, 2014, on TNT and TBS.
