Film veteran Clint Eastwood is set to pick up two prestigious honors in January--a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Directors' Guild of America (DGA) and the Milestone Award from the Producers' Guild of America (PGA).

Only weeks after the PGA announced they would bestow the Milestone Award in Eastwood for his contributions to the film industry on Jan. 22, the DGA revealed yesterday they would celebrate the 75-year-old star's four decades of directing at the annual DGA Awards on Jan. 28.

DGA President Michael Apted says, "As one of the most prolific, versatile directors in the history of the medium, there isn't a genre that Clint Eastwood hasn't mastered in the more than 25 films he has directed over the past 35 years.

"His ongoing body of work continues to touch generations of moviegoers and bring huge audiences into movie theaters. He does it all with great class, intelligence, and style."

Eastwoods last outing as director--Million Dollar Baby--picked up four Oscars earlier this year, including Best Director and Best Film.
