Carrie Fisher will present the Lifetime Achievement Award to her mother, Debbie Reynolds, at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 25. Reynolds will be honored for a career that began in the 1950s and includes classic films like Singin’ in the Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and How the West Was Won.

Fisher, her daughter from her marriage to singer Eddie Fisher, is best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, a role she is resurrecting for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel. Fisher famously wrote the novel Postcards From the Edge, a veiled memoir of her complicated life in entertainment as the daughter of a famous actress, and went on to write a TV movie, These Old Broads, that starred Reynolds and the woman who stole her husband, Elizabeth Taylor.
