Screen Actors Guild Awards( Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times )
Dick Van Dyke accepts the Screen Actors Guild's Life Achievement Award.
"It's such a thrill! Thank you," the veteran comedian said. "I've knocked around this business for 70 years, and I still haven't quite figured out what it is I do? Aren't we lucky to have found a line of work that doesn't require growing up?"
He went on to praise his peers.
"I'm looking at the greatest generation of actors in the history of acting, and you've all lifted the art to another place now," he said. "And besides that, you're everywhere. You're in Darfur, Somalia, Haiti, New Orleans. You're all over the place trying to do what's right."
