Sally Field is adding another illustrious honor to her resume.

The actress, 76, is set to receive the SAG Life Achievement Award at next month’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to commemorate her decades of film and TV performances, organizers announced Tuesday.

Field, who won best actress Oscars for “Norma Rae” and “Places in the Heart,” will be the 58th recipient of SAG-AFTRA’s top honor.

“Sally is an amazing actor with an enormous range and an uncanny ability to embody any character,” SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher said.

“She has an enduring career because she is authentic in her performance and always projects likability and humanity. … Every stage of an actor’s life brings different opportunities, and you just need to keep working. Sally does not stop and we hope she never does.”

Field previously received a SAG Award for outstanding actress in a drama series for “Brothers & Sisters” in 2009. She’s also a three-time Emmy winner, including for the 1976 TV movie “Sybil.”

The California-born actor has appeared in more than 70 films and TV shows in her career, including “Forrest Gump” and “Smokey and the Bandit.” Her next movie, “80 for Brady,” hits theaters Feb. 3, and also stars Rita Moreno, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda as Tom Brady fanatics.

Previous recipients of SAG’s annual lifetime achievement award include Moreno, Tomlin, Robert De Niro and Helen Mirren.

The 2023 SAG Awards will take place on Feb. 26 at Fairmont Century Plaza in Century City, California.
