SAG cited De Niro's extraordinary accomplishments in film and television, including two Academy Awards, a Presidential Medal of Freedom and numerous other honors. It also noted his co-founding and championing of New York City's Tribeca Film Festival.

De Niro's latest film is "The Irishman," which is playing in theaters in limited release before arriving on Netflix at the end of the month.

The actor says in a statement that he's honored to receive the award from a union that he's been a part of for more than 50 years.
