It's about time! This Saturday, comedy legend Carol Burnett will be honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Presenting her the award will be Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who in the past have praised Burnett for opening doors for women in comedy.
"All the women that I've had the pleasure of coming up with... We all hail Carol as the queen for a lot of reasons," Poehler recently said.
Past recipients of the award include Bob Hope, Mary Tyler Moore, Betty White and Dick Van Dyke. The Screen Actors Guild says the lifetime achievement award is given to those who embody the "finest ideals of the acting profession."
