Academy Award® winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio will present the SAG Life Achievement Award to two-time Oscar®-winning actor, producer and director Robert De Niro during the 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®, the producers announced today.  Accepting SAG-AFTRA's highest accolade from his co-star in several films, including This Boy's Life, will be a special moment at the ceremony, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.
 
DiCaprio co-starred with De Niro in This Boy's Life as Toby, the only son of a single mother in 1950's Washington state. De Niro played Dwight, Toby's abusive stepfather. The complexity of each of their roles, and the emotionally charged storyline helped create a lasting bond between the two actors, who went on to work together in three more films. 
This Boy's Life, one of DiCaprio's earliest films, brought his talent to life and helped propel his career as an award-winning actor.

De Niro's incredible repertoire of films includes his Academy Award®-winning roles in The Godfather II and Raging Bull, as well as Oscar®-nominated turns for his work in The Deer Hunter, Taxi Driver, Awakenings, Cape Fear and Silver Linings Playbook. De Niro has proven his versatility with his memorable dramatic roles in The Untouchables, Jackie Brown and Backdraft, and several successful comedies in his career, including Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers, Little Fockers, Analyze This and the dramedy Midnight Run
