The irrepressible Rita Moreno will add another prestigious honor to her long list of prizes. The Oscar-winner for "West Side Story" is getting the 50th annual Life Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild.

She will receive the prize on Jan. 18 at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will be telecast on TNT and TBS.

Ken Howard, co-president of the guild, in a statement called Moreno "extraordinarily versatile, talented and generous" and saluted "the breadth, depth and quality of her many demanding and commanding roles."

The guild noted that Moreno, 81, is one of just 11 artists -- and the only Hispanic -- to have won the top four competitive prizes in the entertainment industry: the Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy.
She has won Emmys for "The Muppet Show" and "The Rockford Files," a Tony for "The Ritz" and a Grammy for "The Electric Company Album."

Her movie credits include "The King and I," "The Four Seasons," "The Ritz," "Carnal Knowledge" and "The Night of the Following Day." But she is best remembered for her stunning performance as Anita in "West Side Story," which won the best picture Oscar for 1961. Her TV credits include "Oz" and the current "Happily Divorced" on TV Land.

Congratulations to her on the well-deserved honor!
