The veteran comics will receive the Academy Legacy Award for ``unflagging dedication to bringing international acclaim to Canadian talent in film, television or digital media.''

The two ``SCTV'' alum currently star in the CBC-TV sitcom ``Schitt's Creek.''

They play a wealthy couple forced to live in a small-town motel when their fortune collapses.

Academy chair Martin Katz says Levy and O'Hara have played together so often and so well that they thought ``it only fitting to honour them together.''

The award will be presented at a red-carpet event Feb. 25 in Los Angeles to celebrate excellence in Canadian film, television and digital media.
